3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. Hazy, deep amber body. Off-white, large, frothy head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of caramel, plum, prune, raisin and spice with a hint of clove, anise, cobwebs and flowers. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes moderately sweet, moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Medium to full body, watery texture turning sticky in the finish, lively carbonation. Initially, the sweet caramel is so heavy it overpowers everything else. But the finish reveals subtleties, including dark fruits, mustiness, anise, bitterness and alcohol warming. Really nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, brown pour, lots of foam with this one. Peppery alcohol, dark cherries, molasses, belgian yeast aroma. Tastes of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, yeast, and vanilla. Hot, alcoholic/acidic finish. Nice brew overall... but I do wish the alcohol strength was better hidden.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Heavy caramel, slight ruby, large frothy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Alcohol dominates, pale dark pitted fruit, some biscuit, even a little musty barnish aspect.   Seems like a cross between a Quad and a
Triple.   Very warming, note as alcoholic as I would have thought.   Not all that Quad like.   More of a Belgian Strong, dark pitted fruit is there but subtle.   Gives away to a very malty alcoholic flavor.   Seems a
little bready.   Yeah, half Tripel half Quad.   Really, its just missing the heaviness on the fruit side for a quad.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Mild spiciness to finish.   Really, not much of a
Quad.   Enjoyable, but a little off the mark.   Wouldn’t hesitate to have again, just hard to classify this one.   Quad meets Tripel I suppose.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is potent and a little intimidating, also slightly sour. Color is dark and milky, head is big and tan. Palate is smooth and very full, coating my tongue, tips and teeth. Flavor is alcohol, roasted, sweet, peppery (no real sourness). Very enjoyable.
