330ml bottle served in a Trappist chalice.
A: Pours a nice deep brown color forming a huge creamy fluffy tan head. Very good retention and many lacings left. A nice creamy layer remains forever
S: Very malty and yeasty with notes of alcohol. Dark fruits like plums and raisins. Caramel and candy sugar. Classic Belgian yeasts
T: Follows the nose. A classic Belgian Quad, very creamy and molasses. Very bready too. Strong notes of caramel, caramel malts, dark fruits and Belgian yeasts. End is quite bitter with notes of flowery hope. Balanced bittersweet combination
M: Heavy creamy molasses body with good carbonation. Bittersweet Belgian style aftertaste
O: Great Quad. Excellent beer. Recommend

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy/murky amber-brown with a somewhat lacing and diminishing beige creamy big head. Aroma is bread, marzipan, raisin, nuts, caramel, bubblegum, hops, anise and brown sugar.
Taste is moderate sweet and light+ bitter. Body is near full, texture is creamy, carbonation is high. Finishes balanced with lingering caramel and a alcoholic burn. More restrained than your typical quad.

Poured from the bottle into a short glass to drink. The beer had a black to dark brown color with a deep ruby red hue and a big creamy off white head with excellent retention, cling, and lacing. The aroma had strong notes of raisin, fig, plum, and sweet molasses with some fruity hops and a light toffee malt. It had a fairly floral taste with a touch of sweet raisin, fig, and plum, and a light touch of sour earthy flavors. The beer was somewhat creamy and what, but with a thick and large mounthfeel with a bubbly body and good carbonation.
