On tap at Lost Abbey. Dark thick head; nice lace. Subtle caramel, ripe plum, and vanilla with notes of exotic spice on the the nose. Surprisingly sweet up front which fades to a subtle kick and long spicy finish. Way more subtle than expected considering the two types of chili, cinnamon, and tamarind that went into the brewing process. Caramel and Far East spice in one gulp. Amazing.

Picked up tonight at Brewforia Meridian... A 4 finger brown head took forever to die back... nice lacing... the brew is a turbid dark dark dark brown.
Nose is spicy with both cinnamon and chili and some Belgian phenols.
Flavor is a little flimsy, the aromas are better... a bit of brown maltiness with the accompanying cinnamon and something that I guess is the tamarind.... chili flavor builds along with a little head. Belgian character is there, but a bit lost in the other flavors... could use more malt flavor IMO
Body is light and is punctuated by a big carbonation.
Decent brew... 3rd time I’ve had it... Doubt it will get better, but I like it and will buy a couple more for the cellar if I find them. yespr (47581) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2013

Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a cloudy opaque nutty brown with an orange hue and a creamy, lacing beige head. Nutty, roasty nose with a touch of sweet chocolate. Solid body, somewhat overdone carbonation (!), nuts, burned caramel and spices with a slightly roasty finish. Some warming alcohol in the finish. Not so much of a Quad to me - and the excessive carbonation is quite annoying. 250313

Pouring at the Saturday sessions of Extreme Beerfest. Pours a hazed brown with a large yellowed beige head. Spicy, fuzzy musk, a touch of paper. Sweet, caramel, chocolate, prune and plum. Lots of roast, warm cocoa. Chocolate, roast, plum, more fuzzy muskiness. Lingering alcohol and wood on the finish. dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2013
The pour is dark brown with a thick brown head. The nose is like rye spice, some chocolate, some green apple, light coffee and dark fruits. The taste is mildy sweet with a medium to heavy bitterness. It just tastes a bit off. The mouthfeel is sharp and astringent. The body is heavy and the finish is log. I think there was no need to do this to an already good beer. It's not on par with a Belgian strong ale.

Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget, March 2013.
Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of fruit, raisin, malt and some cinnamon. The taste was quite complex with spices, malt, dark fruit, chocolate, yeast, soap and some warming alcohol. Quite creamy mouth feel and with a long aftertaste. A good beer.

Sampled at EBF. Pours a watery, translucent mahogany, one ring of white head. Nutty, chocolate aroma, raisins, dates, candy sugar. Flavor is candy sugar, date, prune, light spice, ancho chile, Szechuan peppercorns. Full, slightly spicy finish. Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - MAR 14, 2013
Got something small to celibrate, and the name of this beer is related. Very dark brown beer, a good head that holds nice and steady. Malts, raisins and spiced coffee and chocolate. Not bad at all. I like the spices and maybe this one will age even better. If It was some cheaper I would buy more for sure. When warming up there get some more unpleasant biterness trough. That is a bit sad.
