Its deep complexity begins with a molasses sweetness with notes of dark fruits like raisin and fig and develop further with an undercurrent of tart spice from its distinctive Belgian yeast for a truly transfixing brew.

ccex (982) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2015
750ml caged and corked bottle pours a purplish mahogany color with lasting tan head and spots of lacing. Aroma is full of Belgian yeast, dark fruits, caramel, and spices. Taste is sweet and fruity, with caramel malts becoming more pronounced as it warms up. The spices and banana come out in the warming finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a slicky mouthfeel. A very satisfying quad with a lot going on.

Poured from bottle into a snifter Appearance – The beer pours a deep mahogany color with a one finger head of tan colored foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a yeasty and slightly spicy aroma with lots of coriander and a little bit of clove. Some other aromas of dark fruits (being mainly of raisins and figs) as well as some caramel and molasses are there as well. A little bit of banana, a light pepper, and some alcohol are there as well rounding out the aroma and producing a somewhat fruited, but not overly sweet smell overall. Taste – The taste begins quite a bit sweeter then I would have expected from the nose, with tons of darker fruits of raisin and fig as well as a very strong showing of a caramel and candied sugar taste. While the fruit is sweeter than the caramel upfront, the sweet profile later switches with the caramel and candied sugars getting more potent and the fruit less so. All the while there is a yeasty taste as well as some lighter spice upfront that get stronger toward then end. The spice never gets really strong and is largely dominated by the sweet, but does give a nice accent to the taste. Along with the lighter spice, some banana and a little bit of a warming alcohol comes to the tongue at the very end, leaving one with a quite sweet and pleasantly warm and flavorful quad flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is a little on the thinner side for a brew of 10.3 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The thinner body did a wonderful job for the sweet darker flavors of the brew all while keeping a nice drinking feel without being too weak to support all the rich flavor. Overall – A really rather nice Quad overall. This is a quite nice and approachable brew overall that I can see most people rather enjoying.

750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a DFH signature glass, the beer pours a mahogany brown color with almost a couple inch creamy light tan head that stayed around for a very long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like dark fruit (plums, figs, raisins), cloves, molasses and some sweet spiciness. It tastes like dark fruit (plum, figs, raisins), cloves, red grapes, caramel, molasses, oak and some brown sugar. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and is well carbonated. The carbonation is soft, which helps make it easy to drink. I thought this was a good overall brew, it’s worth picking up if you’ve never had it before!

monk191 (1126) - California, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Another great beer from the Samuel Adams barrel room collection. Pours a deep red with a quickly dissipating tan head. Smells fantastic, cloves, raisins, plums, banana and cinnamon. Taste is quite malty, with banana and cloves upfront, and plums and raisins coming in at the finish. Has quite a dunkel quality. Had in the bottle.

BrettTaylor (575) - Radford, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Pours a dark copper color with 3 finger head. Poured into snifter. Aroma is full of fruit and a bit wine-like although there’s some definite strong malt and subtle hop notes once it’s been open a bit. Taste - a lot of dark dried fruits (figs, plums) with toffee notes clearly present as well. Some alcohol mid to late palate.
