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.

Lonick (1029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle, pours dark drown, slight head with some nice lacing. Fantastic fruit/spicy nose in the Belgium Quad style. Unfortunately the smell is better than the taste, its good , dark fruits, spices, banana but something about it just knocks it down a peg or two. Good, great even just not excellent.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Pours a very dark ruby with a small khaki head. Lots of dates and plums on the nose, some caramel, molasses, a bit of spice, and red berries. Again strong plums and dark fruit on the taste, molasses, toffee, bready malt notes, and a nice earthy spice flavor. This is a doozie of a quad, quite well rounded though.

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Pours a murky black, fairly cloudy looking. Thin but firm tan head. Nose is charred banana bread smothered in syrup. Greasy but dense mouthfeel that finishes satisfyingly sweet and clean. Toffee soaked raisins and demera weary sugar. Fairly one way sweetness, no rich backboard. Can’t shake the banana maltiness throughout but doesn’t build. The finish is a clean light bubblegum sweetness. Pretty good but not a wordly.

Bottle at the Quadfest. Aroma of chocolate and molasses. Pours dark brown with good clarity and a small film of white head. Taste is molasses, raisins, with a caramel chocolate finish (and subsequent belches). Very tasty brew. A pleasure to try it.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle with foil poured into a trappist glass. Pours dark brown with light brown hightlights and small beige head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is dark candy sugar, syrupy texture, and little lacing. Taste is dark candy sugar and some dark fruit (mostly fig). Good quad, but not my favorite.
