2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle. Pour is copper/amber with redish hue. Head is whisper thin and is gone quickly. As in commercial diScriptuin, dark fruit,rum and toffee notes dominate. Sweetness is too dominant for a Belgian Quad.Think addition of all the raisin puree deviated this beer from typical quad. Am fan of Belgian Quads, but this misses the mark. Too sweet.

Nice big quad with a dark fruit taste that keeps it on the slightly harder to drink side but it is none the less enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
I love quads so therefore I was eager to try this beer. Unfortunately, it is a bit of a let down as it just lacks the sophistication of most Belgian quads. The head is lacking and while the aroma is good, the beer is way too sweet. Very nice dried fruit and clove characteristics with alcohol becoming more prominent as the beer warms. If the sweetness could be dialed back a bit it would do wonders for the beer.

Bottle. Orange, raisin, toffee malt and alcohol aroma. Hazy amber with small head. Sweet orange, peach, raisin, toffee malt, and moderately bitter herbal flavor. Rum finish. Very tasty.

Dark fruits abound in the aroma and taste. Pretty complex and a delight to drink. Smooth and very drinkable especially at 12.3%. Not a huge fan/pro of quads but this is really good!

Pours an amber color with no head. Aroma is lots of dark fruit, some caramel, a touch boozy. Flavor is similar, very sweet. Goes down smooth. Excellent.

WAY too sweet. Banana, bubblegum, raisins, some sugar, a little Belgian yeast. This isn’t very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle into chalice, 2015 vintage bottling. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with poor retention, that reduces to a thin ring pretty quickly. Minimal lacing on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of golden raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, grape, light banana, pepper, clove, caramel, toasted bread, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready/candi sugar malt notes; with good strength. Taste of golden raisin, plum, pear, apple, grape, light banana, pepper, clove, caramel, candi sugar, toasted bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of golden raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, grape, light banana, pepper, clove, caramel, candi sugar, toasted bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast and bready/candi sugar malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and slightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale Quadrupel style! All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready/candi sugar malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the huge ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours clear amber, sma to no white head. Smell is sweet, taste is sweet. Malty, sugar, fruity. Way less dark than average., and very focussed upon sweetness and overripe fruit ( banana for the most part)
