COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian Strong Half-Quad made with a ridiculous amount of oats, unrefined Belgian candy syrup and fermented with yeast stolen from the clutches of deepest, darkest ostrich pit of Oostvleteren. Brewed especially for either Three Floyds and Friends week or Belgium’s Kattenstoet, “Festival of Cats.” It really depends on who you ask.

Sample, pours reddish brown with tiny bubbled huge head which seems to be the case with these kegs from Italia. I didn’t kind but pain in ass for a bartender to pour. Notes are roasted malt, prunes, plum, candy sugar, and cereal/vanilla malts.

12oz tulip at City Taphouse. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a ring of beige head. Nose has a lot of chocolate, raw cocoa nib, bread crust, earthy, a little soil, a little raisin, some chalk. Flavor is malty, gristy, chocolate, some dried fruit, but just sweet. Reminded me more of a stout. Chalky finish.

Rando7 (736) - Iowa, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Very dark brown with this tan head. I had it on tap, it was pretty cold and I didn’t get much aroma. Taste mainly stout/porter like with roast and oats, slight dark fruits. Finish mild roast. I didn’t get a sense of Belgian yeast here. Palate porter-like.

Not bad but not what you’d expect from the description. Seemed like a roasty oatmeal porter.

kambei70 (601) - - AUG 8, 2014
On tap at El Bait Shop. Pours black with thick, fizzy off-white head. Aroma is roasty and ashy with the Belgian candy sugar Cingular through. Cross between a quad and a stout. Some chocolate, molasses, roasted malt. Slightly lactic. Mouthfeel is medium full with a smooth middle and a slight burn at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
