330ml bottle shared with a friend. Very dark brown color, almost black. Tanned thick and longlasting head. Rich fruity aroma with earthy tones, some yeast. Thick, creamy and oily palate. Flavor is fruity, wine like rich. ABV is very well hidden. Roasted plums, citrus tones. Aroma, appearance and palate are excellent. Expected more from flavor.

Quite enjoyed this one. Aroma of dark fruits, little Belgium yeast. Flavour of raisins and figs, pretty surprised on how the 11.3 ABV was disguised.

Pours deep cloudy brown with a thin beige head which dissipates quickly. Aroma of cherries, raisin and wine. Pleasantly carbonated and surprisingly subtle for a beer of this alcohol content. Crisp and rich with flavours of figs, plum, sweet cherry balanced with oak and cocoa. Superb Quad/BDSA.

GlennHendry (13) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Pours deep reddish-brown, less head and carbonation than #8. Smells of dark fruit of various ages - plum, raisin - and tastes of more ripe fruit with a hint of licorice. Sweet and bitter at the same time. Really awesome and likeable beer

SG111 (186) - - DEC 18, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy brown, lots of sediment. Really pretty. Frothy beige head. Aroma is raisins, very prominent fig, plum, lots of dark fruits. Smells amazing. Flavor is plums, raisins, fig, currants. Really pleasant, definitely those traditional quad flavors are present. Really awesome beer. This definitely stands out as far as Belgian beers go. Amazing.

yuzuha (14) - sioux city, Iowa, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Nice brown reddish appearance with off-white foam. Nice aroma. Very complex flavor... chocolate, dark fruit (berry plum etc.) malt. Reminds me of Duvel plus a wonderful complexity and substance with a bit of an alcohol finish (it is over 11%). My new favorite!

Looks like mud but is delicious! Malty, nuts and fruit aroma. Sweet and slightly bitter in a thick, full bodied delivery. Long, slightly bitter finish. Just excellent.
