Dark brownish red pour with large fluffy tan head. Aroma of caramel, malt, dark fruit and alcohol. Taste of burnt sugar, caramel, fig and a definite alcohol warmth present. A little too boozy on the dry finish, good beer though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
NDB, NY 11.2oz ($4): Pours a reddish brown that is nearly opaque; it is covered by a pretty head that leaves a thick lacing. Aroma has the Belgian yeast, plenty of fruitiness, and a whiff of liqueur. This is kind of a mellow quad. Fortunately not too sweet and also the alcohol is well covered up and becomes apparent only in the aftertaste a tad. Hops are really on the down low. Dark fruit is most prominent. Leaves a sort of sticky feel in the mouth, but is very palatable in general. Not really the most complex quad in the world though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of dark fruits, chocolate, candi sugar, spice, and light alcohol. It pours a dark reddish-brown with some transparency when held to the light and two finger khaki head with decent retention. There is some sporadic dotting for lacing. The flavor starts with dark fruits and candi sugar. The finish has some spice, faint sweet citrus notes, and initially just a hint of alcohol. As it warms, the alcohol intensifies. The alcohol isnít overbearing or necessarily hot, but it could be toned down a touch. Itís medium bodied with lively carbonation that manages to come across more soft than prickly. Overall, a tasty Quad, but not up there with the elites.
