Ruby tinged brown beer, tan head. Nose is dried fruit, plums, sugar, yeast, malt. Flavor is dried fruit, alcohol, dark sugar, chocolate, plums, spice, caramel. Alcohol in the finish. Oily mouthfeel. Rich, but very drinkable. Nice.

Poured into a tulip glass. Two and half fingers of head on a deep brown colored body.
The aroma is a great blend of caramel, apple, pear and other bright fruits.
The taste has a big dose of caramel malt sweetness, some fruit, black licorice and mild bitter finish.
The texture is fairly smooth with moderate carbonation.
Very well done..

(Bottled) Drinking 11% Quadrupel beer at 1.45 in the afternoon is one of the perks of entrepreneurialism ; this is actually pretty swillable , with the booze being cool and satisfying. A rich caramel palate ,lots of complex tart fruit esters, both cherry and plum..brown candy sugar covered in silky butteriness. Some floral hops lurk under the dark flavours...

I’ve been sitting on this one since my pre-RB days. Okay, that’s not so long. Looks incredible - Deep tar pit brown with a big tan head that has no business on a beer this strong. So much lace I can barely read the Chimay logo on the opposite side of the chalice. Smells like old currants, dates and sweet baking spices. Yeasty bittersweet malt flavor that is only a letdown relative to the aroma. Very thick texture but smooth and easy drinking. Finish that dries out slowly. Highly recommended.

Bottle from Heinens shared with Brett, yeah it smells like dirt, and tastes very odd finishes dry and quickly with no lingering fruits or anything. I guess thats what their intent was but not all that enjoyable, alcohol is warming so thats a plus and it looks quad like.

Bottle@Home. Prune and vanilla aroma. Brown, beige head, very nice lace. Sweet, very bitter, herbal, pepper, vanilla, laurel, quite complex. Warming and full. Pretty alcoholic, bitter for a Quad but very balanced. Different from any Belgian Quadruple IMO.

Shared a 33cl bottle from Delheize. Pours a brown colour with a tan persistent head. Aroma is caramel and yeast. Medium carbonation and full body. Flavour is quite light for a 11 ABV beer. Good!
