COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Boutip (5181) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear dark brown color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of residual sugar notes with light dry fruits and dry cereal notes. Taste is a mix of residual brown sugar notes with some dry fruits and lightly grainy cereal notes. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but seems to lack some cohesion between the different flavors.

yngwie (15379) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle, 75cl corked. A hazy, light brown beer with a small, beige head. The aroma is quite roasted and fruity, with some dried fruits, bread and berries. It’s full-bodied and quite dry, too dry I think, and also with a bit too hard carbonation. Not that it’s effervescent, it’s more that it feels way too force carbonated. Raisins, prunes, some bready, caramel-ish malts and a touch of toffee and roasted malts in the flavor. Decent bitterness too. Lasting bready, caramel finish with some dark chocolate notes. Rather boring this one, too dry and with a flavor combination I don’t appreciate. Well hidden alcohol though. 150617

AirForceHops (4508) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 9, 2015
750 ml bottle aged nearly two years. 2013 vintage. Color is dark brown with ruby red highlights, head that lasted for most of the snifter. Aroma is candy sugar, lasting dark fruits of raisin and figs with mild yeasty tones. Smell is pretty nice.

The flavor shows a solid base Quad qualities with dark fruit being the main base showing the figs and raisins but the alcohol is real noticeable even after sitting this amount of time. Alcohol not hidden in the slightest. The body is a little thinner than it should be... Looking for a tad more body. Not bad in any sense just lacking some body.
