COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Now, seventeen years after we started, we’re proud to present another great addition in this ongoing series. AleSmith Decadence® 2012 is a big Belgian-style quadruple ale. A variety of Belgian malts impart notes of bread and ripe fruit with subtle hints of cloves and molasses. Its creamy mouthfeel is balanced by a rich, full-bodied finish. This rare offering is meant to be savored and will age nicely.

barn0216 (397) - California, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. Clear reddish brown color, lots of foam but it dissipates fairly quickly, medium lacing. Candi sugar aroma, molasses, faint hops. Taste is similar with some anise, tobacco, and alcohol. Hop bitterness comes out more in the finish. Quite good overall but comes up short against the best Belgian quads.

hopscotch (9037) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and dark with a ruby-colored body and a small, creamy, beige head. The aroma is a malty, fruity intermingling of dark sherry, herbal roots, singed caramel, a hint of vanilla, a splash of dark sherry and a kiss of brandy. Full-bodied and a touch watery with gentle carbonation. The flavor is a malty, boozy mélange of brandy, caramel and dried dark fruits. Not at all cloying. Lengthy, burnt caramel and toasted marshmallow finish. Bottle courtesy of weihenweizen!

caesar (5043) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
Bottled @ Camping Ratebeers 2014, small sample. Dark copper color, short head. Aroma of caramel malt, raisin, slight spicy, bit of bread and ripe fruit. Medium sweet in taste, slight bitter, touch of alcohol. Quite full bodied, probably not as much sugar used as the belgian counterparts. Nice belgian-styled stuff again from Alesmith.

Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2014
Sampled from a 0.75l bottle @ RBNG 2014. This is a lovely glowing amber ruby looking one. It also has a small islandy dark beige head. Smells lovely sweet with all sorts of dried glazed fruits; dates, raisins, sticky toffee caramel pudding and glaze. Yeah, it has a lovely sweet and punchy aroma! Oh, this tastes good as well. I get that dry licorice thingy at first with a ton of dried fruits and berries. There’s a woody touch to it as well here. Feels really thick and sticky in the mouth this and it’s only prickling on the tongue. Would not mind a bottle alone of this one. 15.02.2014
