2009 bottle. This bottle just kept starting at me in the basement. Fairly normal quad appearance with no head though. Big aroma of molasses and prunes. Nice flavor that tends to the sweet side with fruitiness. Very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Caramel, toffee, apple, and alcohol in the aroma. Flavor is strong and sweet, with caramel, grape, and some spice. Finish is long and sweet, with some drying alcohol. Really good, but only if you like sweet beers (and I do).

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from bottleselect.com. Pours very hazy orange/copper with a transient, slight light tan head. Aromas of dark fruits and dried grapes. Lots of sugar in there. Near full bodied. Flavor is grape/raisin. Sadly not plum. Treacle. Well, I guess I like my quads fruity/sugary. Cause I like this. It’s heavy, but somehow the fruitiness helps. It’s not really bitter, and far from dry, but my mouth reacts like it’s astringent. Very nice. Comfort beer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bottle. Dark orange color, medium lived nice frothy off white head. Sweet candy malt smell. Full body with a sweet flavor that merges great with the alcohol level and a incredibly smooth finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bomber into a snifter a deep cloudy orange with a thin head.
The aroma of fruity sweetness is strong almost no booze here (think it is hiding).
Taste is of dark fruit toffee & caramel. Floral citrus as well.
The finish is straight up boozy sweet malt. Feels sticky in my mouth.
Overall an better than average Belguim quad. The uber sweetness keeps me from loving it more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle into chalice, 2011 vintage. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby red color with a small light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, fig, pear, grape, clove, pepper, toffee, candi sugar, molasses, toast, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, pear, grape, brown bread, toffee, candi sugar, clove, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light and dark fruits, brown bread, toffee, candi sugar, clove, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice flavor complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with a good malt and yeast flavor balance with no cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and moderately syrupy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with a moderate warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice quadrupel style. Good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; and fairly smooth to sip on slowly. A nicely enjoyable offering; this improved quite a bit as it reached room temperature.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice dark amber color with little head. So, light aroma of malt. But has a nice taste to go with it. A lot of strong Belgian fruit flavor. A little sweet on the palate, but the acidic balances it all out pretty well.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From 22oz bottle.
Pours a copper red with almost no head. Fine lacing with fruity aroma. Raisins in the brew come through pretty strongly in the taste.
Low score reflects my personal palate preferences, not necessarily the quality of the brewing.
