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.

Big thanks to Sparky for sharing this. The 750mL bottle pours a nice clear mahogany with a thin tan head of foam. The aroma is inviting with some thick malts, prunes and dates as well as a bit of raisin like dark fruity esters. The taste begins with a nearly creamy mouth feel offering up smooth sweet prunes and brown sugar covered dates and raisins. This is a smooth yummy and rich brew with only the slightest rough around the edges sensation which tells me the room for improvement with age is kind of small. Don’t get me wrong, I’m going to age a few. Lovely Quad.

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.

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.
