pintbypint (3438) - Edmonton, Alberta, - JAN 15, 2012
650ml brown bottle. Dark brown pour, looks fairly clear. Head is thin, tan in colour with some foamy shoulders and a bit of a shallow surface film. Nose has dark chocolate, raisin, big esters - clove and banana. In the mouth the beer has choclate, caramel, raisins, and fruity notes of banana. Finish has strong alcohol, dark cocoa-ish malts, some hops, a little yeast. Medium to full body, good level of carbonation. Overall this was a little underwhelming, but not really a bad beer. I guess it doesnt help when two of my favourite beers are St Bernadus Abt 12 and Rochefort 10. Those beers are hard to live up to, but Ive drank lots of each of those so its hard not to compare any brew calling itself a quad to those two iconic brews. Im exactly sold on the nose, too estery for me. Gains some depth of flavour as it warms, but somehow doesnt quite come together for me in the end.

Sekemoto (20) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
Pours a dark mahogany with ruby highlight. A thick and creamy beige head with thick fuzzy lacing. The nose is heavy and mildly roasted with a nice desert like fruit. Notes of toffee, tart, prune, raisin and a bit of spice. The middle is sweet and fruity with a hint of clove and a prominent raisin taste. The finish has a mild alcohol and light hop with a nice Belgian style yeast and a beautiful aftertaste. The body is medium to full with a bit of a light mouthfeel.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy deep brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of caramelized candi sugar and dry raisins notes is pleasant. Taste is also dominated by caramelized candi sugar with some light toffee notes with some dry fruits notes also perceptible. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Though style to brew with so many staples but still an enjoyable version.

brokensail (16328) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks to the Canadians, eh. Amber pour with a white head. Smells of caramel, toasted bread, and toffee. Lightly floral. Quite sweet and a touch fruity. Mild booze on the palate. Tons of caramel, toffee, and raisin. Hints of plum and flowers. Slightly herbal on the finish. Very light spices.

650ml botle. A pretty nice dubbel, caramel, dark fruit, lower spice, but booze.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle. Tasted at RBSG grand tasting post-tasting. Last one of the night (I hope). Clear dark red color. Thin khaki head. Leaves good reaches of lace. Looks good. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Dark fruit, spice. Moderate bitter taste, some light sweet. Spice. Decent quad, here. Some ginger.

rodenbach99 (4415) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Un bomber partage par Patrick. Robe acajou / noisette avec une mousse brune. Le nez est confitur-compot tant il est sucr. Une touche danis transperce le mur de chocolat pic. La bouche est trop sucre, lalcool trop puissant, elle manque de ptillement pour tre digeste. Les saveurs sont pices sur la rglisse. 6/10

SlovakSniper (5355) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2013
Une grosse bouteille. Une robe brune acajou. Une mousse collante. Un nez frapp par des fruits sucrs et par une dose folle de malts gras. Un got dpices et de caramel fruit avec une subite amertume dalcool. En bouche, un liquide qui prsente un corps de moyenne densit. Un ptillement qui me semble faible. Une texture qui est huileuse et qui devient lgrement collante. En finale, ma langue qui est allgrement tapiss par un sucre densment fruit.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 Smells like caramel and spices. Pours dark blackish brown.On the taste side of things its sweet up front, followed by raisins. Not bad but doesnt blow you away either.
