Cloudy amber beer. Big tan head that tastes of oaky butter cream - yum! Semi soft dry palate. Vanilla oak and banana. Peppery spice. Trace of bubblegum and aniseed alcohol. Dry finish. If not for the spice this could pass for a dessert beer. Tasty Dutch treat!

In bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of raisins, honey, yeast, toffee, alcohol and oak. Similar flavours of raisins and sweet honey with alcohol fairly present. A little sweet overall with moderate carbonation and light CO2 prickle with a foamy mouth-feel.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark amber to brown body with a nice one finger frothy beige head that retained really well due to a combination of the high carbonation and the Chimay chalice it was poured in. The nose is super rich and thick with loads of dark fruit, just a light woodiness, and a very vinous quality. Just a slight hint of alcohol along with a sweet almost marshmallow like note. The flavor is really rich as well with a really well mellowed and integrated complexity. The maltiness is really soft and yet still quite chewy and full. Full of ripe dark fruits and a really well done yeast profile. The oak is really feel done as well, remaining in the background and coming out as only an accent on the finish, it’s not tannic or biting at all. The alcohol is very well hidden as well, it provides just a slight warming sensation on the finish. The body is ultra smooth and has just the right amount of carbonation to keep it a bit lively on the tongue. This is one of the best Quads that I’ve ever had. It has all the best qualities of a traditional Quad, but that little something unique from the barrel aging to keep it from being average. I really have to wonder how the other batches are, is it just this batch that’s so good? Is it the age that has made it so good? I need to seek out more of these!
