Beautiful looking brew. Slightly hazy apricot in appearance w/ a decent amount of carbonation. Has a lot of aroma. You can tell just by the smell that this one is going to be strong but fantastic. Nice sweet spicy flavors but not too sweet. Canít quite put my finger on all the flavors I pick up; there are a bunch of them. A tad bit of alcohol flavor but it feels great as it warms going down. Simply the best Quad Iíve ever tasted, without a doubt.

Iím not sure how to decipher the code to tell the age. This stuff was more amazing than I remember. Very similar to St. Bernadus 8 with a tad more oomph but still so smooth. Have to buy more.

Llight raisin with strong caramel. Light spice and alcohol there too. Hazy brown/dark armber with small lasting off white head. Sweet caramel flavour balanced with mild dark fruits and light spice. Smooth, medium-full feel. Lacks depth in flavour though, a little boring for a quad/abt.

33 cl botttle; Foamed out of the bottle. Highly carbonated with excellent fluffy foam, dark yellow, almost orange and hazy. As you drink this beer it will leave fat belgian laze don the sides of the glass - absolutely gorgeous! A really beautyful beer with a lot of character. No particluar aroma - but the flavour is strange and excellent. Powerful phenols that is almost overpowering, but ends up being piquante. Flavour is sweet, but the extreme - almost champagne like - carbonaton lends it some room, and prevents it from being cloying. An excellent beer, that masters the art of balancing extremely well. A lot better in bottle than it is on tap!

Initial pour produced plenty of fluffy soapy head. A very bubbly and attractive amber color. Nice spicy "fall" aroma too it. Went very well with the turkey and stuffing dinner. Light and easy to drink with a sweet malty finish

Bottle. Nose is sweet and smells like Juicy Fruit gum. Notes of cherry, bread, brown sugar, dried fruit, and alcohol come out. This is much, much better than I anticipated. Very nice. Clean and devoid of any problems. I would happily drink this anytime.

rerate 5-14-05. bought the bottle just for the glass. donít know why. i donít have room for more, but hell i needed to blow some cash on something i guess. so iíll rerate this puppy on a saturday morning while i watch season 1 of scrubs. pours dark amber with a white head that faded to a ring soon after i poured it. of course i had to spend a few minutes fighting the cork out. never had one that stubborn before, damn good thing iíve been working out. musty yeast and grapes and some floral notes as well. sweet up front taste like a wurthers candy. pepper comes in and leaves a dry powdery finish. a bit watered down apple and nutmeg is in here too, maybe not nutmeg, but some other spice, cinnamon maybe. a touch of alcohol is noticeable on the finish, but not to the point i would think this is a 10 percent beer. 7 4 7 3 14 ov-3.5

A fragile beer - have had it bad on more than one occasion, tending toward heavy esters - fluffy/creamy mouthful of mild dates and raisins and light spice when itís one. More often thinning and estery with a definite fusel flavor.

Amber color with a strong alcohol nose and a big foamy head. Cherry flavor with breadiness and a sharp alcohol aftertaste.
