Bottle shared by oRos. Pours caramel with a thick beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a delicious raisin and toffee flavor with a mellow slightly bitter finish. A nice version of Decadence.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Deep ruby, thin to moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Big and boozy bready nose, heavy.   Also some alcohol and dark pitted fruit.   Boozy maltiness on the tongue, bready, sweet, dark pitted
fruit that is very acoholic.   This one seems to be a little young, immature, or lacking in proper reproduction attributes.   Not a mature beer by any means.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Big bright finish,
super sweet breadiness, a little popsicle, some big bready malts as well as an torpedo tube aftertaste.   What the f*ck is a Torpedo Tube Aftertaste?   I have no clue, but it tastes like something out of the cold war era.
Sweet, bready as f*ck, and just plain ole difficult to drink.   A bit caustic, super strong popsicle like flavors.   How is this rated all that high?   Its a bruiser and a bastard of a Quad/ABT beer.   I feel like I just
sh*t myself finishing this beer.   WTF just happened?

750, capped and foiled. Pours a murky dark brown with a loose creamy tan head. Big sweet nose, lots of brown sugar and party balloons. CO2 happening. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Brown sugar, party balloons, CO2, aluminum, and tangy persimmons on the mid palate. Mild bready finish. Not bad. Definitely not great.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via Eric and enjoyed in my St B chalice: Pours a ruddy brown hue highlighted by a touch of crimson and copper with a fading fizzy head, some oily tears. The aroma notes of fig newton cookies, plums, anise, chocolate covered banana and clove imbued tobacco. The taste is actually well restrained with sweetness and maltiness supported by some yeastie spicy and earthy notes. Reminds me a lot of a young Roche 10 more than say a Westy or even a Saint B. The mouth feel is a tad over carbonated by considering the genre that is sort of good thing and makes it more drinkable, warming yes, overbearing no. I am digging this brew and so glad to have finally try it. Mille fois merci Monsieur Starnes!

"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 I’ve 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."
