COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

bartzluke (201) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 8, 2015
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 (337) - 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!

rjplumer (621) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2015
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.

Old rating. Dark brown pour, big malt body with plenty of fruit and spices. Very sweet, port-like as the description says. Nice after dinner stuff

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!

Deep brown pour, creamy off white head. Nose is herbs, coco, wood, and hint of cherries. Bittersweet. Middle is malt, smoke currants. Finish is smoky and sweet.
