Apis IV pours dark brown with hues of orange and red, a thick creamy off-white head, and traditional Belgian lacing. The beer has notes of bread, dark plums, figs, molasses, and honey, balanced by light earthy and floral hop aromas. The beer starts out on the pallet with caramel, honey, dark fruits and a rounded floral bitterness, with spice notes from the Belgian yeast strain we use in this beer brewed in the Trappist Belgian Dark Strong Ale tradition. Look for a medium to heavy mouthfeel with high carbonation and slight alcohol warming. This beer is perfect for cellaring and its complex flavors will mellow out and blend overtime.

Excellent Belgian Quad with a twist. The honey was great, not overwhelming, didn’t make it too sweet. Reminded me of fresh honeycomb. Belgian yeast character was spot on for the style. Will definitely drink again.

12oz bottle split three ways. This smelled and tasted like sweet, rasiny wet bread. Strong alcohol presence. But wet black dessert bread. Maybe something like this just needs a little bit of time. It wasn’t astringent or off putting, just a but too sweet. Low hops.

12 oz bottle pours dark brown with a tan head. Ok retention. Get some dark fruits, banana esters, and booze on the nose. This guy is quite boozy, actually. It was a slow-sipper for sure. Decent example of the style.

From the bottle the poor is clear and dark brown to red, the aroma is yeasty with a wisp of spice and a little honey, the taste malty with bits of honey and a little corn in the finish. The mouthfeel is full medium.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours out a dark brown and makes a thin tan head with a bit of lacing. Perhaps a bit too much of a cola taste for me, but is sweet and malty with very little aroma. For this expense and build up, I expected much more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A decent fruit quad, tasty but not too interesting. Pours a beautiful deep red with a thin tan head. Smells of cherries and caramel. Lots of Apple and cherry in the taste, with some caramel in the finish. Had in the bottle.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark reddish brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose initially comes through with some caramel notes, but mellows out to some dark fruits. Taste is a bit sweet and definitely has that dark fruity element to it. Heavy and substantive, yet smooth mouthfeel.
