3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 750ml bottle into tulip during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach it was hard to peg this tape-wrapped bottle. Dark red-brown in body with a small tan head that quickly settles to a thin ring. Some spotty lacing is left on the glass. Aroma is raisins, figs, plums, chocolate malt, yeast, and alcohol. Taste is strong dark fruit and caramel malt sweetness with a touch of cherry, light cocoa and spice bitterness, and alcohol on the swallow. Medium-plus body, syrupy thick texture, average to soft carbonation, alcohol and spice finish. I have read that newer bottles may be too carbonated, but think this bottle was aged some, so that may have affected the profile. I quite enjoyed this style-bending quad.

Ruby red with a creamy beige head.
Aroma is mostly sweet with raisins, lots of malt and some alcohol.
Taste is sweet with chocolate, raisins, caramel malt light bitterness, faint coffee.
Full body, soft carbonation, dry mouth feel.
Dry after taste.
Ok, but could had done much better with a smoother mouth feel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown, near black color with nice fine tan head. Malty aroma, some raisins. Taste is malty, boozy, raisins, vanilla, lacks a bit of an additional fruit association like the top Quads do. A bit candied-sugary. Not as good as expected. Still fine.

2014 bottle poured into a snifter mahogony brown with a beige head that quickly left.
Aroma is sweet boozy. That unique Belgian scent that makes me smile.
Flavor is thickly dark fruit spicy. Smooth. First had couple of years ago on tap at the The Lost Abbey. Seriously as delicious. A fave ever American made Belgian Quads.
