COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a richer version of our Dancin’ Monks Dubbel, conditioned on oak cubes used by Spirit of Texas Distilleries to age their Pecan Street Rum. While no additional alcohol is derived from the conditioning process, the oak adds a rich complexity to the ale. Pair with dark chocolate desserts or bold cheeses.

(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Murky copper with a thick tan head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Lots of plums and some raisins as well. Flavor is very sweet with lots of dark fruits and tons of caramel malts. Surprisingly light and thin bodied for nearly 11%. Really sweet and kind of nice.

gyllenbock (5270) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle bought by a colleague who recently visited Houston. (thanks Wolff) Dark amber with a small head. Nothing special with this one. Dryish with dried fruit, some nuts and caramel. Warming alcohol in the finish.

@ Gyllenbock 14-12-13: ganska snäll doft men lite het. Smaken är torr, kola, nötter. Ok men inget mer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

BelgianBeerGal (3287) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2014
C&C bottle from HV WF. Pours a light bronze color with a quickly dissolving head but active carbonation. Typical quad aroma with some sweeter dark fruits, prunes and malts. Flavor is a little disjointed; resembles a quad but a little too boozey and spicy. Okay.

puboflyons (2339) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 9, 2014
From the corked caged 650 ml bottle which was bottled on 8/13/2014. Dark amber-red pour with modest tan head. Sweet Belgian malts and black licorice nose. Slight boozy quality. Medium body. The taste has the same malt and licorice flavors with a biting bitterness at the finish. Not bad now but might have been better after cellaring.

Travlr (14385) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown color, small beige head, decent lacing. Aroma of raisins, plums, vanilla. Taste is vanilla and Christmas fruitcake. Decent.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Cloudy reddish brown color, moderate to large head, good lacing and retention. Aroma is raisin, plum, light banana, dark sugar, yeast, light alcohol. Medium to full body, raisin/plum flavor dominates with some alcohol burn. The oak/rum flavors are barely there. Really good.

bhensonb (11904) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 12, 2014
This should be "Monks". 750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark ruddy copper with a 3 finger foamy beige head. Aroma of dark roasty malt with dark fruit. Full bodied. Flavor is some rum spice, with indications of chocolate, and raisins or similar. I’d prefer plum/prune, but this works. Finishes just less than dry. No problem with alcohol (except in the brain). Good quad.

marcus (7083) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours near black with a huge tan head and a strange fruity aroma .There is a sweet fruity caramel malt flavor with some banana ester and a dry finish.

lb4lb (2565) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2014
Smell is raisin and dark fruits and yeast. Taste is raisin sweet malt. Cloying for me but seems good for the style, if I had to hazard a non quad expert guess.
