In a 750 ml bottle, sounds great when popped, lots of aroma in the pour, cherries, apple, blackberry, blueberry, sweet caramel malt, rich Christmas pudding. A slow sipping fine Belgian ale, the abv is well hidden. Very sweet, tasty and delicious.

Very dark, sweet and fruity. Extremely smooth considering 11% content. A shame that they dont brew larger quantities.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours dark brown with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows chocolate fudge, rum and raisin, dried prunes, spicy phenols, golden syrup. Lovely.
Equally rich and decadent flavours. Brown sugar, rum and raisin, dried dark fruit, soft booze, gingerbread. Stunning.
Carbonation could be just a bit higher.

I went to my favorite store in Atlanta, Hop City, home of Male and Female Beer Guru's, and asked for recommendation based around, lost Abbey's Judgement Day, and the Abt 12, and SHE recommended this. The bottle wasn't very appealing and I've never heard of the brewery, so I was a little shaky.... When I opened the cork, it sounded like pearly gates opening! This is an awesome Quad (full palate, lovely aroma, appearance, and superb flavor, I think it's at the top of my list... Note to self- listen to every recommendation she has for you. Thanks!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 2011 Cork and Cage 750ml @ 58°; clear deep amber brown body with a 2" light khaki head fading to a thin sheet, leaving cave painting lace; Aromas and flavors are complex and well integrated, dates, figs, apple pie, vanilla, white grapes, berries, cherries, caramel, faint soft milk chocolate, light spice; a mmh body is silky and slightly creamy, restrained carbonation, but enough to know it’s Belgian, a touch of heat leading to a drying, slightly roasty finish with coffee and cream blending into all the fruity sweet goodness; a great quad

2007. Quite fruity: smells of blueberries, figs, dates, and a kiss of Belgian yeast. Taste follows the same path, adding caramelized malts to the fray. Strawberries in the background. And deceptively easy to drink! Tasty stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma è di frutti rossi acidi , come ribes o amarene. C’è un sentore di caramello e (forse) liquerizia. esteticamente è molto bella, con schiuma color kahki , colore rosso scuro con acceni in controluce color rubino, ferma nel bicchiere. In bocca ha una carbonatazione soft, un corpo medio di consistenza oleosa, che rimane a lungo su lingua e palato. Il luppolo c’è ma non si avverte dato il ggrado alcolico ed il gusto dolce/acido. in bocca ricorda le strong dark ale di natale. La prossima bottiglia la farò invecchiare perchè mi apsettavo più complessità e più tenore alcolico.
