the aroma was of hazelnuts and a tiny bit of pickles. a dark amber colour with a thin but lasting head. the flavour is of nuts a really good malty sweetness. is a little too biting from acidity and slightly from alcohol, but may be correct for the style. it has a nice creamy belgian feel too. i am verryyy impressed with this beer and am going to pick up a bunch more for special occasions

Bottle. Pours a dark brown body with a white 2 finger head. Sweet and fruity with lots of esters, banana, raisin and apple. Lots of sugar and alcohol that drys out the tongue. good one.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2011 Pours a deep dark brown with a thick white head that has good retention. The aroma is yeasty, with some standard dark fruits, with an odd note of apple and banana. The flavour is a pretty good reflection of the aroma, with some dark fruit malty sweetness up front, some warm alcohol notes in the middle mingle with some strange minty spice? a dry yeasty flavour lingers in the background all the way till the lightly bitter, slightly fruity sweet finish. A little too carbonated for the flavours to be allowed to really rest on the tongue at all, but still a damn tasty beer. ReRate: Alright, so i upped this a mark because I just cracked a bomber of one of these that had been sitting in the back of my fridge for almost 2 years. It was actually by accident, I totally forgot it was there. Anyhow, this beer is much much much better when aged, but im only upping it one point as it took so long to get it this good.

KingGambrinus (117) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 14, 2008
Deep copper with a small but lasting white head. Initial aroma of alcohol and banana, but later turns into sweet malt, a bit of yeast, peppermint, cinnamon, apples, caramel, and candy. Flavor is malty, fruity, spicy, and has a medium bitterness. Smooth texture, full body. Alcohol is well hidden until the finish, which is bitter and.. boozy, yet warming and pleasant.

Excellent, although I expected more. Curious but you have to drink it while standing to get a better taste.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2012 750 ml bottle from the LCBO. pours clear amber with a small white head. ok that was the first pour, after that they come more hazy and with bigger heads but im just saying. the bottle conditioning is encouraging. aromas are sweet malt yeast belgian candy yummy greatness. the flavours are about equal but the fruit boozy elements are quite apparent yet completely appropriate. makes for a nice value sipper but not nearly as good as westy 12 or roch 10.

Dogbrick (12376) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Bottle at Winking Lizard. This beer is a clear dark ruby amber color with a medium thin and foamy light beige head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit and anise. Medium body with flavors of malt and caramel primarily, and plum, coriander and light alcohol underneath. The finish is spiced and fruity. Pretty good all around.

pootzboy (1694) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2008
750ml cellaring bottle. Pours a lightly hazed copper red ale in the chalice with a small puffy off white cap that laces well. Aromas of pungent maltiness, big dried fruit esters and a lashing of grass and fusel alcohol. Complex flavour is rich and pungent with figs nuts licorice, treacle, oranges, spices and some earthy woody tastes. The character in the young ale although bright and delicious, is a tad sharp and a year or so in the cellar will round this off.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2008
750mL corked/caged bottle from the LCBO. Pours a beautiful dark copper amber colour, almost ruby when held up to light, with a nice medium tan head that lasts. The aroma is just outstanding, fresh yeast cake, fruity to the max and not just dark fruits, but pears and apples, alcohol, pretty much everything you can love in a Quad. The flavour is equally outstanding, waves and waves of flavour, this baby is still a little rough and fresh. Red delicious apples, pears, bubble gum, sticky sweet malts with a seriously firm back body, and a small hint of dry herbal hops. Floral, like actual flowers are in here, yet it works some how. The alcohol is so well hidden, yet at the same time you know how strong this baby is. My description does this stuff no justice. Simply fantastic, I will certainly by more of this.

Lovely deep copper pour with quickly diminishing white head. Fruity start with dried fruit and yeast leads to herbs and butterscotch and butter to finish. Light tasting but hides its strength brilliantly.
