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.

750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a deep caramel brown color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma had sweet caramel, dark fruits, bready malt, yeast, candied sugar and toffee. The flavor is everything from the nosewith a fairly smooth mouth feel. While maybe not as complex as the Belgian versions, this is quite tasty.

750 ml bottle to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a semi-opaque brown with fluffy light beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; candied dark fruit and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good beer.

Shared bottle at RBNG-14. Pours almost clear dark brown, very thin head. Aroma of toffee musty malts, syrupy malts. Oily clean mouthfeel. Taste is moderate sweet, raisins, prunes, toffee, lingering sweet, light roast, well hidden alcohols.

caesar (4957) - 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.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2014
Thin tanned head. Almost clear dark ruby colored body. Rich malt nose. Fresh sourish-sweet with dark creamed caramel, tinned dark fruits, bread-crust and some fine herbal tones. Full-bodied. Smooth and creamy in the mouth. Big dark caramelly malt base. Plummy fruitiness. Rounded roastiness. Spice and cellar notes. Warming, long gently roasty-sweet ending. Really good stuff.

JohnnyJ (4271) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish amber, with a rocky off-white head. Dark dried fruits (raisin, date, prune), candy sugar, belgian yeast, spice, roasted nuts, aged sherry, toffee, and with a long, dry finish. Abv is hidden, just a pleasant warmth. Very good quad, I will definitely buy more of this.

Beerman6686 (4234) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2013
This one poured a semi murky dark red to brown color with a small beige head. Aroma was dark fruits, lightly burnt sugar, dark candy sugar, chocolate, yeast and mild spice. Flavor started with a plummy yeasty grapey taste, followed by belgianesque spicey middle, and finished with a nice chocolately and roasty conclusion. An excellent American version of the style.

Bottle... Poured dark brown with a khaki head. At first a little metallic and blood-like. As it warm dark sugars and plum notes came through. Mild bitterness and alcohol but fruity and sweet with some dryness towards the finish. Hit the spot for the style.
