Flyer (118) - Hartland, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2008
A nice beer. Essentially a maltier belgian dubbel, but that description doesn’t do it justice. Pours a beautiful copper coloer with a frothy head. Aroma of spices and fruitcake. Flavors of classic dubbel, spiciness, some hints of fruit, wrapped around a toffee malt center. Nicely balanced. Just the right alcohol burn, with a slightly sharp fruit finish.

drdisque (810) - Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2017
On tap at Haymarket. Flavor is boisterously fruity and spicy with a bit of alcohol warming but an overall bright character. Somewhat caramelly. Slightly dry finish. Quite good.

Bottle Pours deep amber almost brown hue with a. Small lite eggshell head and sparse lacing. Nose is big dark fruits candy sugar spices toffee. Flavors show the toffee spice and dark fruit elements. Leaves a big spicy and caramel notes on the finish. Much better than I was expecting. Very dry finish with lingering spices. Very nice.

Taste: raisin, dark Cherries, not real tart, boozy, semi sweet malt notes. Fruit cake, herbal, and alcohol nose. Copper color, clear, average head and lace. Medium body. Smoother than I thought it would be.

islay (2463) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2016
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 8-6-16. Floral aroma features scents of caramel, cotton candy, and Red Delicious apple. Not my favorite set of scents. Lovely copper appearance. Mostly clear but slightly hazy. Small amount of beige head. Boring taste. Low in flavor. Tastes like the pale, American imitation of a Belgian strong ale that it is. Medium body. Very little to the palate. Overall, not a good beer. Displeasing aroma. Boring flavor. A big disappointment.

Lots of caramel aroma and flavor. Not sure this is really a quad - no plum or alcohol burn. Maybe though.

tmoreau (4091) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a clear, copper color, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was malty, caramel sweetness, subtle spice, esters as dried fruit, and vegetal/herbal/garden hints that werent altogether offensive, but somewhat inappropriate, imo. The taste continued the malt sweetness, with fair carbonation, in a medium body, with low bitterness, and complementary alcohol warmth. After a slightly questionable start, a fairly decent, Belgian Dark Strong Ale.

JonnyMadison (87) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle. Poured a cloudy, amber, almost ruby in color -- quite beautiful! Very little head, dissipated quickly. Delicious flavor. Fruity, but still with caramel smoothness -- enough bite to keep you going back for more, but never bitter. Wonderful finish! Delightful winter addition to Ale Asylums great line up!

"another newbie from pfoxyjohn...and another memorable one. a nice bready spicy sweet aroma greeted me upon the pour. nice looking cloudy dark amber. lots of dark fruit, plum, alchohol, a hint of spice and brown sugar in the flavor. nice n complex...n warming. body is almost sticky, but the carbonation cuts right through it. a nice, well done grand cru from WI."
