12 oz pour from room-temperature bottle into tulip glass. Black and nearly completely opaque. Large fizzy white head with fairly quick spatulation. Medium body; maybe a little thin for my taste. Nose is sweet. Dark fruit, cherry, dark malt, raisin, maybe plum. Really nice. Taste is also fairly sweet and fruity. Cherry. Port or sweet, dark red wine notes. Lingering bitterness. Moderate alcohol burn undertone. Complex sipping beer.

Pours a murky red brown ruby color. Small tan head that doesn’t hang around. Aroma of ripe plums and maybe slight fig. Caramel and almost roasty notes as well. The taste is similar to the nose, more depth in the malts though, some toffee almost coming through. Some more traditional belgian notes jab in such as bubblegum and pepper although only slightly and they fade quickly. Medium body with a relatively dry finish that hints at chocolate but doesn’t go quite that far. Incredibly drinkable. Not the most complex quad ever, but certainly a tasty one. Thanks Cards04!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich dark fruit aroma. Deep mahogany red body with a off-white head, The head is exuberant at first and settles to thin covering after a short time. Heavy dark fruitiness and spice. Feels rich even with the lively carbonation. Warms the palate on the way down. Has a crisp finish that is on the dry side at the end.

Bottle: Dark reddish brown with an off white head. Dark fruit, cocoa, and spice aroma is followed by a fruity taste (stone fruit - apricot and plum - and raisins) and spices. Fairly balance with a slightly bitter finish.

A very good Belgian styled beer. Heavy in alcohol without that aggressive burn. Dark yet some spice and fruit flavours, not just all malt. Very nice!
