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.

Bottle. Very dark brown, almost black pour. Translucent. No head on the beer. Spicy Belgian nose with some dried fruit (raisins maybe?). Moderate alcohol up front. Lots of carbonation. Sweet fruit and some spicy Belgian finish. Bitterness afterward. Nice palette. Overall pretty good, but not my favorite Unibroue offering.

Bottle from Drinks of the World, Geneva. Pours mid to dark brown. Intense candy sugar and yeast aroma. Sweet taste with a naked alcohol burn: tastes as strong as it is! Nicely carbonated body. This is an intense beer and while it isn’t quite as balanced as many of the classic Trappist quads, it’s still a fairly special beer.

emusche (105) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Pours deep ruby; almost black. Nice, frothy off-white head. Aroma is plum, bittersweet chocolate, slightly peppery, maybe molasses. Taste is white pepper, plum, raisin, some notes of chocolate and just a little booze. Tastes almost like a dark saison, very similar to Three-Eyed Raven. Overall very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A Unibroue quad through and through, with a nice fruitiness and a hint of nuttiness but that overlively carbonation.

Pours a medium dark purplish brown. There is some dark fruit and spice in the aroma. Most of the flavor hits the front of the tongue then quickly disappears. There is enough flavor to hide the alcohol but it doesn’t linger and you really can’t savor it because its gone to fast. Not too bad but not much to talk about.

One Bad Ass beer! Dark, foamy, light sweet aroma, and packed full of flavor. This is the beer that changed it all for me.

J’ai pris du temps à savoir l’apprécier, et c’est aujourd’hui que j’ai compris. Peut-être qu’il fallait des années pour enlever de ma mémoire les beuveries à même la bouteille (aucun respect!) pendant mes études d’examen universitaire. Des bons souvenirs, mais pas pour la dégustation de bière! Aussi, c’est une quadrupel qu’on doit boire l’été! Aujourd’hui il fait chaud, et elle désaltère à souhait. Pourtant, elle est brunes foncés. À son nez, on sent déjà un pétillement frais au travers des arômes de raisins (popsicle mauve :)) et de fruits mûres. En bouches, c’est étonnement léger, les résidus sucrés/fruités s’évaporent dans les bulles avant une finales qu’on savoure pendant de longues secondes. Tout ça pour seulement 6$/750ml, à porter de main dans tous les dépanneurs du Québec, on ne connait pas notre chance!

bottle. Pours an extremely dark black with a large beige head and very lively carbonation. Aroma is of spices, plums, and raisins. Flavor is fruity with spices in the finish. Full bodied with creamy texture. Very good.

tfontana (211) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is wild mix of bready malt, a musty yeastiness kind of like a pencil eraser, spices, alcohol and fruit esters. Appearance is virtually opaque dark brown at center of glass with hazy, lighter brown (light dark cider) at the outside, with nice effervescence and persistent foamy beige head with mild lacing that doesn’t linger on the glass. Taste is moderate sweetness and light sour. Palate is moderate to heavy bodied with thick texture, lively carbonation (perhaps a tad too much) and a nice, pleasant sweet over sour finish. Overall, this is really nice and interesting, hitting pretty fully on all levels. Aroma is a bit more interesting than taste and mild demerits for too much carbonation, but those are the nitpicking separating this from perfection.

ryecatcher (1061) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2015
750 mL bottle. Pours a deep, burnt sienna, massive beige head with ridiculous retention and nice lacing. Nose is Belgian yeast funk, candy sugar, allspice, banana, dried fruit, plums. Mouth is medium bodied, drier than I anticipated, caramel, fruit, bubblegum, spice, toasted bread, well balanced and the ABV is only evident at the back of the throat. Very nice Quad.
