Pours a deep hazy ruby brown with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma is candi sugars, belgian yeasts, rasins, caramel, dark fruits and spices. Flavor is rasins, candi sugar, touch of booziness, fruits, belgian yeasts, caramel, spices. Not too sweet like a lot of quads out there. Good stuff.

Another solid brew by Dieu du Ciel...cola colored body produces a creamy eggshell head that never quite left and created sticky lacing. Aroma is brown sugar, toffee, caramel, and raisin. Flavor is honey, dark fruit, and molasses. Just a touch of alcohol. Medium mouthfeel. Solid.

On tap at DDC. Darkish amber with a beautiful rocky head. Nice looking beer. Sweet aroma of brown sugar, raisins/prunes, and a little alcohol. Flavour is maybe a little green; some aging would bring out more subtleties and reduce the alcohol. I’ll be testing that theory in about a year. Nice to have a solid Canadian-made quad, in any case.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of SoLan. Pours murky amber with deep copper hues and assertive and lasting tan head. The aroma is dark rich fruity esters of prunes, plums and dark ripe cherries to go along with sweet malts and a touch of pepperiness. The taste is rich and sweet with loads of fruit esters going on like in the nose with red apples, prunes, plums and sugar drenched cranberries. It gets a bit peppery here and there too. It has a smooth mouth feel.

Very nice. Dark pour with little head. Excellent dark fruit and light fruit aromas coming off this one. It’s basically a malt bomb. Flavor is very full with more fruits and some chocolate coming out. Finish is excellent. Fruity and yeasty and just a bit boozy. Nice quad.

Bottle. Brown pour with white head that dissipates within a minute. Dark fruits, sweet dark malt, spices and slight alcohol warming. Nice beer flavor is not like a 10.5 percent beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells like spicy baked apples. Complex malts have a lot going on. Jammy sweetness, with an overtone of sweet bread and pastries. Cooked brown sugar and warm molasses coat some bold spicy notes. Apple pie is in there, too. Bitterness is very mild but it surfaces nicely in the finish. Earthy, wholesome. Warming, cozy alcohol.

A Mes rate. Bottle at the Rake thanks to Rudiger.
Semi hazy amber with a thin off white head. Amazing fruity aroma. Lots of sweet burnt sugar notes. Glorious marzipan and some excellent sweet alcohol. Damn good smell. The flavour is almost identical. Very slight soy and really tasty caramel. Surprisingly dry in the finish leading to a fantastic sweet marzipan and burnt sugar finish. Maybe a little straight forward but everything it does it does very well indeed. Excellent stuff. Could see me getting messy on this.
