4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aromas of plums, dried fruit, and spicy phenols. Very dark red-black with a fully lasting beige head. Dry and fruity, plum is evident, with a deep-flavored roasty malt bill, finishes with a touch of vanilla. Medium-full bodied, chewy, with great carbonation, finishes with lingering plummy dried fruit.

Bottle in early 2013. Pours a dark caramel brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have ample dark fruits, fresh plum character, caramel, candi sugar, Belgian yeast with a touch of spice. Very nice and carries the abv pretty well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of yeast, figs, and of course plums, notable alcoholic licorice background. Jet black like a stout. Sweet fruity taste, dry wine finish. Not overly plummed if you will, since many big Belgians give off a dark fruit taste to begin with. This beer is way too thin unfortunately, which means in the end the strength shine through over everything else. A style where a palate score should be 5, this is only average.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12.7 oz. bottle, corked and caged. Pours a dark chestnut brown, a little murky, with a thin beige head. More of a ring really. Outstanding rich aroma featuring a ton of dark fruits and brown sugar. Really complex. Flavor is more fruit, including plums. Quite sweet on the tongue. Rich, full bodied and gut warming. I was given this bottle and told it was a couple years old. The age has dulled, to its advantage, the alcohol burn others have mentioned. Very nice indeed.

Bottle pour. Pours a pitch black. Nice notes of aged plums. Strong aroma. Pretty disappointed. Flavor isnít bad but the palate is extremely weak and contributes to a loss of what could be a big flavor profile.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with the cork and cage. Great label artwork. It has a chestnut brown pour with a short-lasting off-white head and good clarity. Some red hues with the light. Yup, the aroma tells me it is a Quad with its Belgian sweet notes, yeast, dark malts, hop bite, and plum. Medium body. Like the aroma the overall impression is sweet at first and biting at the finish. Slight lingering booziness. Dry ending. Nicely done.

Hey, really enjoyed this. Iím thinking I will finally have to change my favorite beer from an imperial Russian stout to a Belgian quad (ironic this comes from a quad not brewed in Belgium.

On tap at Selma's in Ladera Ranch. Bold plum notes in aroma and flavor, but not overbearing. Slightly sweet, brown sugar, rich malt, hint of spiciness. ABV very well hidden. Excellent.

375 ml bottle cork and caged. Missed this each time it was on draft. No matter. Rich and full body quad with deep fruit flavors. Plum totally stands out. Very tasty and right for the price.
