750 ml bottle shared by someone at the Baymont Jackie-Oís release weekend bottle share. Thanks! Pours a dark amber color, mostly clear, with a small off-whtie head. Notes of caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, mellow spices, clove, molasses, boozy bread, vanilla, and chocolate. Medium-full bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, rich, full mouthfeel. Nice American take on a Belgian tradition.

"They nailed the description, and the beer. Decadence has always been just shy of elite, especially being from on of my very favorite brewers, but this latest one is my favorite of the 4 years Iíve had. Everything you want in a quad. A melange of toffee, molasses, dark and even a little lighter fruit, belgian spice. Covers up 12% pretty dang well. I love this beer and hope I can find it again."

Pours deep mahogany into a Trappist glass. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Molasses, brown bread and dark alcohol-soaked pit fruit aromas. Sweet caramel and clove upfront turning hot raisin brown bread and chocolate in the lasting finish.

Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Been holding onto this for a couple years. It popped open with force, almost bubbled out of the bottle. A deep, dark reddish brown, aroma reminiscent of other outstanding quads, clove, molasses, Belgian yeast. A little alcohol, brandy. Full-bodied, sweet, a little burn. Roasty notes present. Creamy, rich. Outstanding.

Sarlacc83 (1933) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle. Purchased awhile ago. A: Pure black with a creme head. Lacing. N: Greeted by a big whiff of brown sugar, toffee, and caramel. Cola and sasparilla. Molasses and a hint of vanilla. T: Mostly sweet with a lashing of bitterness. A little sourness. M: Medium body thatís a touch watery. Alcohol is muted. O: I honestly canít tell if I like it. It has really high points and then aspects which completely undermine the goodness. Enough goodness to push this over average; not enough to sing its praise like it was St. Bernardus.
