3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a brownish/amber with very little off-white head. Aroma is sweet and consists of candied fruits, dark fruits, a little spice, yeast, raisins and alcohol. The aroma actually reminds me a little of Dogfish Headís Raison Dí Etre. Taste is what you would expect from the aroma but is not overly sweet and the alcohol is hidden well considering this is pushing 12%. Body is light to medium. I love hoppy beers, so this is definitely not my preference, but it isnít bad and makes for a decent sipping beer.

Deliciously smooth! Pours a pretty copper w/ a white head & good lacing. The aroma is robust w/ dark fruity Belgian notes. The flavor is of dark fruit w/ just a bit of bitterness in the very end. Itís medium bodied & a delight on the palate despite its potent 12%. Well done!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours dark brown with a healthy head and lacing on the side. It has a sour aroma to it with fruit elements, not citrus, and sugar. It has a sweet taste of brown sugar combined with non citrus fruit flavors. It in not bitter on the way down, but is has a definitive warming element to it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Dark brown/reddish hue with mostly lasting fizzy off-white head. Good lacing. Strong fruit (prunes, grapes, other dark fruits and some light fruits) and spice aromas. Sweet bitter sour fruit up front with more of a spice finish. Smelled much better than it tasted. Lively carbonation on the palate.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Een van de beste Quadrupels dat ik ooit al gedronken heb. Een zachte, zelfs een licht zoete smaak, maar toch heel vol van smaak. Heel hard te vergelijken met de Quadrupel van La Trappe. Een echte aanrader!

On tap at the airport in ABE. Wow, this is big. Very big. Huge banana taste. Lots of sweet candied sugar flavors with hints of yeast and bread. Seems like more of an american version of the style over the better Belgian versions. Itís good, just hard to finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle into tulip glass on 2/22/14. Date on bottle read 11/06/2013. Poured light amber color with some head and lacing. Aroma was fruity, sweet and malty. Moderate carbonation. Taste consisted of dried fruits such as prunes, figs and raisins with yeast and a touch of tart. Went down easy for a nearly 12%.
Very enjoyable beer on a Sunday afternoon.
At a year and almost 4 months since bottling, this beer seems to cellar well.

Bottle. Pours a hazy luminous brown with a creamy beige head that dissipates to a thin lace with a foamy ring around the edge. Aromas of banana, clove and fruity esters. Flavors are sweet banana, clove, grape, cinnamon, dark fruit, and crackery-biscuity tones. Finishes with a bit of chocolate and coffee. Slightly peppery mouthfeel; a little syrupy. Noticeable alcohol warmth. This is really very nice.
