3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells like rum-soaked raisins. Could be more aroma on the yeast and malt. Kind of a pretty beer, with a reddish hue that glows in the bottom of the glass. An awfully lot of alcohol on the palate. Raisiny and a little sweet, like candy sugar, with streaks of herbal hop and a buttery, dense caramel/plum/raisin center. Raisin lingers on the palate.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very sweet, lots of brown sugar and Belgian yeast spiciness, maybe some ginger, and a hint of dried fruit. Not overly carbonated, but it seems to be almost "dancing", for lack of a better word, on the tongue. I can’t really describe the "dancing" mouthfeel, but I like it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaue amber/ruby with a thin tan head. Aroma has slightly boozy fruits...plum, prune, date. Flavor follows suit and adds earthy/leathery hops and light spice. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is dry, earthy/leathery, and spicy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma - sweet dark fruited malt with spice
Appearance - the body is deep caramel-colored, and with a tight white head about 3" high. It fades and is a halo after
Taste - the beer tastes sweet, with dark fruit, spice, vanilla, and orange peel (perhaps curaçao)
Palate - the body is more thin that medium. Texture slick. The carbonation average. The finish long and strong with that alcohol burn

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured with a dark amber color. This beer has notes of cinnamon with maybe a hint of cherry. Can really taste the alcohol in it although not complaining about that

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at Crossroads Spirits. Pours a hazy copper color with about a fingers worth of frothy beige head. Aromas of light dark fruits, candied sugar, turpentine, and lots of booze. Taste mimics the nose with lots of booze, caramel, candied sugar, and dark fruit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Vintage 2009. Hazy amber with a thin white crown. Aroma is boozy and fruit with plenty of yeast, citrus and soapy notes. Taste the Belgian yeast up front with a copious amount of fruit and some fruity esters as well. A tad boozy and slippery but overall not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate cookie and nutty for the malt, cooked orange for the hops, dough and broth for the yeast, with hints of raisin, toffee, allspice and cinnamon. Head is small, fizzy, off-white with some slippery lacing and diminishes to a small ring. Color is clear medium red. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet, acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation. and a lightly alcoholic finish. Nice balance in both aroma and flavor in this tasty Quad.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a clear brown with little head. Decent fig aromas, but the taste is not like any Belgian quad I have had before and very disappointing.
