On draught at the Monk’s Kettle in San Francisco. Huge creamy yellow head. Chocolatey, rich, creamy. Chocolatey sweet aroma, perhaps over candied. Nice chocolate malt, not too sweet or creamy. Enjoyable.

Pours a translucent prune brown with glints of cola color around the edges of the glass. The head is HUGE, foamy, and dark tan. A bouquet of tart grape, raisin, cherry coke, and notes of chocolate. Mouthfeel is full, nearly thick, wet, with a bit of carbonation burn that interacts with the spiciness. Some vanilla, more raisin and brown sugar, and chocolate flavors. Sweet and tart occurring simultaneously. Not an off-putting amount of spiciness, for which I am grateful. A bit (just the slightest) boozy at the finish. A pretty clever beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours red wine to ruby red with cremy-brown top, frothy, thick lacing, nice visual performance. First impression about flavor - it’s like mix between stout and yeastfull dubbel. On nose - coffee, cocoa, mild roast, Belgian style yeast - fruity, sweetish. First saps is more spicy than later ones. No dry finish in aftertaste. Complex one of course. Taste is sweetish with bitter from darker malt. In aroma there is some alcohol but in mouthfeel it does not comes out at all, pleasant. Spicy bite comes not on tongue but on palate. Overall I very impressed by my first bottle (not a few saps) of Quad, but long matured stouts "likes me better".

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours super dark brown with a small yellowish brown head. Smells strongly fruity, lots of dark fruits, and hints of caramel and toffee. Taste is intense: boozy, rum soaked raisins, raisins, dark fruits, caramel, toffee, and hints of kitchen spices. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and medium mouth-carbonation, Lost Abbey Judgment Day finishes almost overly sweet and has no real balance, but it doesn’t linger too long.

Tap: darkest brown pour with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of cooked figs and raisins with a light charring of grain. Flavor has grape juice, fig, raisin, honey, a small bit of toffee and hops in the after taste. I was not a fan at first but the flavors mesh as it warms and I started to like it.

Bottle pours a near black with a thin tan head. Warm and floral aroma of dark fruit and toasted malts. Taste has the characteristic sweetness of Belgian yeast, with a prominent impression of raisins, some cocoa and cherry as well. Complex and delicious. The sort of beer I could sip on all night.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours like black coffee with a tan head. Aroma of raisins, chocolate, and alcohol. Delicious raisin and toffee notes, complimented with chocolate and fruitiness (mainly of figs and plums) with a subtle hop dimension. The high alcohol content is completely masked by the full flavor, so beware! Fantastic beer, a must try.
