Reddish brown wish a small tannish head. Aroma full of dark fruit with some rum and Belgian yeast. Sweet, but not that much, particularly for this style, semi-boozy, but not that much. Medium-full bodied. Pretty good.

Bottle shared at catch 22 bottle share! Pours a deep brownish red with thin ring of tan head. Aroma and taste are over the top dark fruit sweetness, not really Belgian esters, just malt and fruit. Boozy and strong, not really a quad for me, meh.

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.

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!
