Clear brown body with a thin white head.
Sweet malt aroma.
The flavor is sweet but there’s not much else going on here.
Needs complexity. Lubiere (13898) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2011
A dark reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, pleasant perfumey malt with orange peels, herbal notes, light solvents. In mouth, a sweet candy sugar with light curacao, light roasted notes, alcohol warmth, rich and nutty, a bit cloying. On tap at Lancaster location, April 8 2011.

In short: A lifeless, sweet, very fruity and boozy Belgian dark age. Meh.DiarmaidBHK (4891) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2011
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed about 2 year after it was bottled.
The look: Partly cloudy dark burgundy body. The small beige head dissipates into nothingness after only a few seconds
In long: Nose is sweetened fresh dark fruits. Taste has lots of raisins, fresh prunes, candi sugar, kids barley candies. All quads are sweet but some hide their sweetness more than others. Here the sweetness was very apparent and alcohol wasn’t too well hidden either. Carbonation was sparse and the mouthfeel was far from lively. I took this bottle with me to a bring-your-own-wine restaurant. I drank the whole thing because it was a long dinner and I didn’t bring another bottle. So it is not totally undrinkable. But have I been at home I would not have finished this bottle and I would have opened something else. And I paid $20 for this stuff?!?!? Ok, so they screwed me up. But I won’t forget, and certain not forgive them. Revenge is a dish best served with hot peppers (NOT cold), it hides the taste of the cyanide.
Pours a bit crimson with not a lot of head. Aroma has some cherry notes. Nice hints of spice and sugar on the tongue. Mellow and warming. Lingers nicely on the tongue. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Red-brown, off white cover. Aroma is cherry, caramel, metallic. Taste is metal, cherry, caramel, very sweet.

Not very carbonated, so not much head. Odd aroma - cinnamon and coffee, I guess. First sip indicates it may be a bit past it’s prime - some stale, cardboardy notes. Some smokey notes, some winey notes. Slightly boozy finish. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2011
25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tan haze. Nose is raisin, oak, fig and toffee; slightly musty. Medium body with sharp and foamy carb. Taste is fig, brown sugar, raisin and clove with hints of dark berries. Finishes with bitter spices. Surprisingly smooth but too bubbly. My first appearance as a Top Rater of Abt/Quads.

Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours a dark, somewhat hazy amber-brown with a moderate, off-white head. Sweet malt nose, with some ripe, dark fruits, yeast and spices. Sweet flavor, too, with strong caramel, burnt sugar, faint bread, modest alcohol and dark fruits. Full in body with average carbonation and mild warmth. Finishes very malty and sweet with candied sugars, caramel and lingering fruits. Nice beer. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2010
750 ml bottle courtesy of my friend J that he purchased at the Lancaster, PA location. Pours a muddy brown with a reddish tint and a thin-moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma of prunes, raisins, molasses, brown sugar, mild spice and some alcohol vapors. The flavor is similar to the aroma and equally enjoyable. Medium-full bodied. Nice!
