Bottle from MoC, Eugene. Pours a dark reddish amber, little to no off white head. Aroma dried fruit, prunes, figs, maybe some candi sugar. Body medium, finish very sweet. Fine for the style, but abts aren’t generally my thing, so yeah.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage wear house. Dark brown, nearly black color with lasting head retention. Aroma is dark malts, Belgian yeast and toasted bread.
The flavor is mostly the same as the aroma. Yeast up front with candy sugar blast that lingers throughout the sip. Hints of chocolate and tobacco. Light notes of ABV, still pretty drinkable. Bottle is at least two years old and still has a nice level of carbonation, lightly creamy. Classic example of the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Traded bottle. Cork limped out of the completely flat bottle. Just a weird quad. Kind of spicy with some coffee too. The yeast was right but it wandered from there. Meh.

8/II/14 - 33cl bottle @ De Lozen Boer (Lochristi) - BB: n/a (2014-182) Thanks to Mathieu and Barbara for the great wedding party!
Clear dark brown to purple beer, very creamy beige head, stable, adhesive. Aroma: quite some caramel, chocolate, sugary, sweet malts, dried fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: bit sweet, malty, some chocolate, pretty bitter hops, more dark chocolate, bit chemical, some overripe fruits. Aftertaste: again chocolate, roasted malts, some mocha, dried fruits, ripe banana, bitter hops and even more chocolate. Very decent beer!

Not a bad quad, though nothing particularly astounding. Tons of dark fruit spicing with some clove and cinnamon.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dull coppery brown with almost no head. Aroma is flat, some sweet malt I guess. Body is somewhat thin. Flavors are dull, a hint of fruitiness and sugary malt, dry overall, but just not much going on. Could be a bad bottle? If this is what was intended this might be the worst quad I’ve had. A struggle to finish.
