This is my second time trying this. The first was on tap at the Yard House a few weeks ago. This rating is for the bottled version, acquired from Julio’s. Poured into a snifter. A very dark chestnut brown color with a huge frothy tan head. Settles to a thick pillowy lace. Deep earthy-fruit aromas and flavor. Dark candi sugar is nicely balanced by a dry earthy bitterness. Chewy and silky texture. Fantastic!

330 mL bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Dark brown cola-like pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, dark fruit, and candi sugar. Taste is of raisin and booze. Alcohol warmth is very noticeable. A nicely done quad.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very deep copper body with a large, creamy, very dense, beige, very long-lived head that laces my glass excellently. Sweet and strong aroma that at the same time also is crisp and spicy. I get delicious notes of Belgian yeast, generic fruits, caramel and spices. The Belgian yeast is a main contributor to the strong flavour as well, along with generic fruits, caramel, brown sugar, alcohol and spices including black pepper. I also get notes of dried dark fruits, but they are fainter than they tend to be for this beer style. The taste is moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Full body, surprisingly dry and with a rather lively carbonation. World class!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy intense yellow with a steady head. Aroma is deeply malt, clearly pasteurised. Body is quite light to medium for a quadruple. Taste is a bit of green hops, but also a light sour yoghurt pinch. A mediocre Belgian beer, 13 in a dozen. On the plus side, the alcohol warmth is well hidden.
