Bottle, shared with my mate Barber, good work from him bringing this back from the US, as he isnít a beer geek he did ok for me there. Pours dark brown with a thin pale brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, yeast, some sweet toffee hints.Quite enjoyed it, drank pretty well, just a bit touch much alcohol in the finish for me.

[Tap] Pint at Fat Jackís in Bloomington, IL during a Sierra Nevada tap takeover. Brown pour with red highlights. Fizzy off white head. Raisin, fig and mild alcohol hints in the aroma. Darker malts, more fruit, toffee and brown sugar in the taste. Noticeable alcohol. A decent Quad. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster. Looks decent; a fairly transparent dark copper with light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark fruit, Belgian yeast, and sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very well - opaque w/ thin tan head that leaves a ring of lacing. Aroma is pretty subtle w/ some of the dark fruit notes standing out. The taste is complex but nothing in particular grabs my taste buds. Itís exceptionally smooth on the palate for its abv but the flavors are just a little jumbled to me. Itís still a pretty good beer - just not an outstanding one!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice looking bottle. Pours a dark brown with little head. Huge aroma that burts with sugar plum, candy sugar, raisin,caramel, and Belgium yeast. Taste is solid. Itís what Belgium quad should taste like- complex flavors and warming alcohol. Medium heavy body. Average carbonation. Full flavored. Nice. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On taps at Hopjackís. Dark burgundy pour. Some nice red fruit and butterscotch with heavy HEAVY belgian yeast notes. Goes a bit overboard on that belgian spice/sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Corked & Caged 750 ml Bottle. Murky dark reddish brown pour with a half-inch layer of tan foam and bubbles. Aroma of dark fruits, caramelized sugars, Belgian yeast and toffee. The flavor delivers on that promise with a healthy dose of candi sugar, caramel malt and raisin notes upfront along with some plum, grape and oak to round it out. Naturally chewy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a dark sugary fruit finish. Another respectable take on a classic Belgian style from the Ovila label.
