Bottle (750 ml). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Clear dark amber with a medium persistent beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of raisins, candi sugar, hints of sweetness, molasses, dark fruits, some oxydation notes, spices and some Belgiumness. Taste is moderately sweet with raisins, spices, malt, candi sugar, molasses, dark fruits and just the right amount of alcohol warming in the finish. Full bodied. Good carbonation. Chewy mouthfeel. Spciy finish. Wow! This is a very good Quad. Taste, complex and great balance. Well done AleSmith!

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.

From a shared 75cl bottle at RBNG-14. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Sweet , caramelly and fruity aroma with mild malty notes and noticeable alcohol. Smooth, but too sweet for me. (2014-02-15 - Grand Tasting, Fredriksten festning, Halden)

superspak (4563) - Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2013
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled in late 2012. Pours lightly cloudy dark ruby red color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, prune, fig, pear, apple, caramel, molasses, toast, toffee, brown bread, clove, pepper, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of huge caramel, molasses, raisin, prune, fig, toast, toffee, biscuit, pear, apple, dark bread, light chocolate, clove, pepper, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of dark fruits, caramel, toast, toffee, molasses, dark bread, light chocolate, biscuit, candi sugar, clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Absolutely incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark malt and fruit/spicy yeast ester flavors; with an amazing malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible Quadrupel style! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
