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.

mcberko (10565) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma of bready notes, Belgian spices, and dark fruits - smells like a traditional quad. Flavour brings out candied sugar, bready malts, dark fruits, and a touch of toffee. Very authentic tasting, i.e. Belgian-esque. Not as epic and complex as the classic Belgian quads, but pretty damn close. Finishes on notes of Belgian yeast and bready malt. Very well-balanced and designed. Excellent stuff.

hopscotch (10265) - 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!
