Strong Belgian type ale similar to a Port wine ! Is as dark as can be, mellow in taste with an aroma of ripe fruits. It can be compared to an old porto and is brewed from well roasted malt.

Yet another exceptional brew from Unibroue. This one surpasses Maudite in terms of quality and balance but is very similar when not comparing side-by-side

Maris (1267) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2016
From a 355ml bottle on 1/2/2016. Pours a deep mahogany with a medium head. The nose features chocolate, dark fruit and a bit of spice. Taste wise, it’s bold and complex, beginning with chocolate and caramel malt, followed by plums, dates and peach, with some mild spiciness at the back. The palate is quite creamy and the carbonation light and a little fizzy. A really cohesive, approachable and enjoyable dessert beer. Definitely amongst the best quads I’ve had.

Highly carbonated which I feel doesn’t suit the taste of the beer. Pours a rich coffee like dark brown. Strong spiced aroma and Taste. Fresh spice hits with a bit of nutmeg.

tightslice (700) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle at Martins West in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is dark breads, dark fruity malts. Taste is a bit underwhelming and slightly bitter. Was hoping for something else...more of a bitter pill than expected.

Prevalent aroma. Deep coffee brown color. Persistent, light tan, small-bubble head. Higher carbonation than I would expect. Lighter bodied. Not my favorite.

Let’s get aroma out of the way. This definitely has an aroma, but for some reason, I cannot place what exactly I am smelling. (update: after it sat for a while, got more of a dark fruit smell and a yeast smell). Pours a very dark brown with a dense, tan head. Beautiful looking beer. Taste of dark fruits and yeast. It just feels very over-carbonated to me. Even after it sat for a while, it was very lively on the tongue. Too much for my preference. Also, a bit more medium bodied than expected for a Quad.

Shark_Pants (534) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2015
330ml bottle, BB 18 Dec 17. Pours dark ruby red in my Struise tulip glass, with nice fluffy and long lasting tan head. Interesting aromas of earthy yeast, stewed plums, raisins, some red wine. Less heavy and flavoursome than expected - plums, light red wine tannins, the earthy yeastiness. Lightly dry in the finish. Very light bodied, drinks more like 4.5% than 9% ABV. Not bad at all but I?d hoped for more flavour in a beer like this.

wombat23 (132) - Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a reddish tint and a creamy light-beige head. Aromas of dark fruits, yeast, malt and alcohol. Taste: dark fruits, some spice, red wine. There is a fairly strong yeast presence. Fairly sweet finish with very little bitterness.

KoNrRiI (959) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2015
0.341 bottle. Hazy, dark brown color and virtually no head. Aroma of malts, spices, overripe fruits, and a bit of alcohol. Taste is sweet, malty, delicately alcoholic again. A medium body, a slick texture, and a lively carbonation. Finish is bitterer, a bit off balance. Overall a standard beer, I have no idea what the hype is about. Perhaps a wrong bottle.

Aroma: fragrant from a foot away; sweet and malty; a little bready; Appearance: very dark with a flat head; Taste: sweet, malty but also wheaty/yeasty; some fruity notes; Palate: medium body, soft carbonation; long, sweet finish; Overall: can appreciate the quality but don’t care for the yeastiness

Bière de couleur brune assez foncé avec le peu de reflets qu'il y'a couleur rouge caramel La mousse qui est fine et compact laisse une belle dentelle Au nez on va sentir des arômes caramélisé et fruité comme les figues les datte le pruneau En bouche on va sentir des saveurs sucrées et alcoolique Avec toujours des saveurs de pruneaux de datte On va ressentir une légère amertume et enfin de bouche un retour alcoolique puissant
