Bill Becker (906) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Super dark brown; smallish but stubborn head of tannish foam. With lacing. Smells roasty, abundant aromas of caramel malt and dark pitted fruit, a wee bit of vanilla. Leather. Taste matches but the vanilla is more upfront. Alcohol hidden so well which goes well with the smooth as silk mouthfeel. Call me weird but I reckon this is superior to the Chimay Blue. such a nice drop.

Donkerbruin bier met mokkakleurige schuimkraag die snel wegebt. Aroma beetje azijnachtig met vleugje chocolade. Smaak is wel in orde. Beetje turf, hout, klein zuurtje, beetje zoetig (Chocolade, bruine suiker, caramel). Alcohol zit goed verborgen. Lekker, maar de blonde versie bevalt mij veel beter.

Faint malt smell. Taste is malt and a slight bit of booze. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, and slight foam.

rondphoto (4286) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 12, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark brown, beige head that drops rapidly to a cover, bands of lace. Aroma of malt and prune, along with other dried fruit. Taste is syrupy caramel malt that warms with alcohol on the swallow, showing prunes and raisins in a medium finish with very little bittering. Fairly, heavy in the stomach, thick, not a good example of a Quad.

Bottle found by accident in Delhaize in Lochristi. Pours dark brown with a medium beige head. Not so much carbonation... Caramel is overpowering, chocolate, malts, very sweet. Cloves, cinnamon.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle from MoC, Eugene. Pours a dark reddish amber, little to no off white head. Aroma dried fruit, prunes, figs, maybe some candi sugar. Body medium, finish very sweet. Fine for the style, but abts arent generally my thing, so yeah.

AirForceHops (6693) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 21, 2014
22 oz. bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage wear house. Dark brown, nearly black color with lasting head retention. Aroma is dark malts, Belgian yeast and toasted bread.

The flavor is mostly the same as the aroma. Yeast up front with candy sugar blast that lingers throughout the sip. Hints of chocolate and tobacco. Light notes of ABV, still pretty drinkable. Bottle is at least two years old and still has a nice level of carbonation, lightly creamy. Classic example of the style.
