Strong Belgian type ale similar to a Port wine ! Is as dark as can be, mellow in taste with an aroma of ripe fruits. It can be compared to an old porto and is brewed from well roasted malt.

Smell and taste of date, caramel, anise. Sweet and thin sour. Very thin white cloud, light body, slightly thin texture but good amount of alcohol. Good but too sweet and much spice for me

On-tap at the Yard House in PBG, FL. Served in a goblet. Dark red, nearly black with no head by the time it got to my table. No lacing. Doesn’t look like it has much carbonation. Delicious smell. Figs and dark fruit. Some caramel malts and the typical candi sugar smell. The taste isn’t quite as impressive as the aroma. Some aromas translated into flavor: the figs and other fruits and the belgian candi sugar. A bit of licorice in the finish. Very light bodied for such a strong beer. Low carbonation and a very dry finish. Finished the glass easily without feeling as though I had drank a 9% alcohol beer. Remarkably well made beer.

Pours dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dried fruits, brown sugar and hint of alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm, dried fruits and caramel finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Ottima strong ale, si presenta marrone scuro con riflessi rossi e schiuma beige chiaro. Aroma di dark fruits. Eccellente la bevuta con una dolcezza ben equilibrata, malto in evidenza e una perfetta carbonazione.

Aromas of plum and caramel. Some bread and alcohol. Dark brown, perhaps slightly cloudy (hard to tell whe. It’s dark). Slight off-white head. Taste is pretty sweet, but in a good, fruity way. Not much bitterness. Medium body. Creamy, slick and a tad oily texture. Carbonation just a little on the lively side (which I think works very well with this beer). Finish long finish with plum, bread and the carbonation. Overall I like this beer a lot. Usually I need more of a hop balance to really like a beer, but this one works very well without it. I love the plum flavors and bread; the carbonation provides some balance. Even has a touch of raison, especially as it warms up.

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.

Maltser85 (357) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - MAY 5, 2015
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!
