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.
