Dark brown with a beige head. Lots of aromas of brown sugar and dried fruit with oak coming through as well. I much prefer this brew to the regular version. Just so much more complex and interesting. I wish they sold this in bottles I’d be interested to see how it matures. As far as I know, this brew is only available on tap. Great beer.

Poured draught at Gingerman NYC. Pours dark, dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is of caramalized sugar and dark fruit and malt. Taste is carmalized sugar as well with a little vanilla and booziness but very smooth and balanced. I really enjoyed this.

Poured from bottle. Deep, dark reddish pour. Boozy, but nicely so. Caramelly, almost syrup but not syrup sweet. Almond finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark brownish; lacing, frothy tan head. Aroma of wood, dark fruit, cocoa, and toast. Taste is woody and moderately sweet (much easier to drink than most quads), with a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied; smooth carb; well masked alcohol despite a slight liquor flavor.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very smooth quad in the true Belgian style. Nice fruity aroma. Carbonated like those from the Old Country. Fruit is abundant in the taste, along with an undercurrent of molasses and bourbon. Peppery finish. Splendid!

Bottle. Sick label. I’d love a hoodie with that monk on it--someone else suggested that, but I agree. Never go wrong with a hoodie--unless you live in Ecuador! Anyway. Poured into my newly acquired Westy 12 glass. Thanks Dave! I owe you beer! Pours dark mahogany with a small fast fading off white head. Nose is typical of the style--dark fruits, some raisin, plum, vanilla, light pepper. Flavor is similar--estery, caramel, dark fruits. Not much booze, but not a lot of complexity either. Just sorta there. I feel like they should have aged this in the same wine barrels used for the Dubbel. Those barrels are magic and did wonders on the dubs.
