3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
More like a dubbel than a quad, very muted flavors, thin body, very carbonated. If you boiled it down by half, it would be more akin to what i expect from a quad. Aromas have a slight eggy (not infected) similar to a pils when cold. Once it warms up to room temp, you do pick up more caramel with a little overly harsh bitterness from the hops in the finish. This one i would expect to improve with aging, for now fresh its about average

Dark brown body and small head. More moderate than expected, although I do like the bready and raisin malts. Soft sweet body, beady malts but nothing special. In a way that’s a testament to how Americans can imitate, I mean recreate the original Belgians, but it doesn’t particularly interest me. (Bomber from Beer City)

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear dark chestnut with a sticky beige head. Nose is predominately biscuit and toffee. A big malt driven beer. Taste shows more class with toffee biscuit, some citric tang, honey and Belgian focus. Balanced well and very creamy. Solid as drop but lacks the depth of a true Quad

Comes out of the bottle a barely translucent mahogany with a light tan head. Strong aroma is mainly sour fruit. Fruity flavor has woody and hoppy notes. Texture is firm and smooth, if not fizzy. Climb this tree.

Pours Amber with a pronounced head. Very light sweet nose but not a lot there. Nice carbonation with creamy mouth feel and dry finish. Malt forward slight notes of toasted malt and just a hint of sweetness. Overall a great quad that I would gladly drink again!

Poured into a St. Bernardus gobelet. It is a dark brown with a small but persistent creamy white head that leaves great lacing. Nose is of bananas, buttered toasts and caramel. Some raisins. Alcohol is only lightly felt through the nose. Taste is sweet and fruity, following along the same lines. The flavors and sugar cross into the barleywine category at times, Mouthfeel is downright syrupy, sticky sweet. Carbonation is low, body full as it gets. A really nice one! Not quite the archetypical ABT but still really, really good!
