Poured into a chalice, the appearance was a mostly dark red close to brown color with a thin quickly dissipating cap of a white fizzy head. Slightly forms valleys here and there in whats left of the head. The aroma has some dates, figs, plums, Belgian sugars, brown sugars, subtle milk chocolate, light bready notes and caramel malts. Subtle spices of coriander and sage. The flavor leads with semi-sweet with an embracing sticky malt bill of the previously mentioned sweet aromas. Quick crisp toasty to caramel malt aftertaste with finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionable feel about it. Carbonation felt fine as it is. A bit smoother than expected for a so called-quad. Overall, Belgian dark strong ale is what I would classify this as. It seems to lose some of its gripping expected Belgian throaty feel in the back of the throat. But Magic Hat has brewed much worse, this one is not bad at all. I could see myself drinking this again.

malrubius (2722) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Bottle from Brewtopia. Dark brown with lasting ring and a little lace. Fruity fig date brown sugar maple syrup and booze aroma. Sweet fig raisin brown sugar maple syrup cherry with mild (slightly too mild) woody piney tobacco bitterness in boozy finish. Medium full body and beautiful soft palate. Very good.

From the 650 ml. bottle. No date on the bottle. The pour is a reddish amber with a short-lived small head. An array of aromas including dark roasted and sweet malts, figs, dates, raisins, and other dark fruits. No alcohol. The body is medium to full. The taste has a lot of the same sweet and fruit dark malts with a warming sensation on the back end.

mcox90 (2000) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 3, 2016
22 oz. bottle. Poured into a snifter. Pours a muddled mahogany with a one finger off white head that recedes to a ring. Lots of raisin, date and fig on the aroma with weak Belgian yeast and a sweet smelling candied sugar. Taste is sweet featuring all the above along with some vanilla. If there are any hops here they are the earthy variety. Medium bodied. Pretty good, but not great.

tekstr1der (451) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Pours dark ruddy brown with thin tan head. Aroma has malty notes in the background of an overwhelming metallic smell. Fortunately this isnt much present in the flavor, with a nice mix of ripe fruits, bready malt, and candi sugars taking over. Slightly sweet, but thats okay with me. Finish is pretty smooth, inviting more. Not bad, but the smell is disturbing.

Draft at Big Jims in Largo, fl. Aroma and taste bit too sweet. Heavy caramel or molasses flavors. Trying too hard to make a strong ale

A clear reddish copper ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, loads of caramel malt with light spicy notes, cinnamon, cloves, fruity esters, dark fruits, plums, very nice. In mouth,, a nice sweet caramel malt with candy sugar, dark fruits, light cinnamon, a bit thin but good. On tap at CNY Brewfest 2016.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a murky brown color with a small beige head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was malty, a bit woody and had a sour fruit note. The flavor was cherries, fig, malty, toffee and a touch boozy with a woody and medicinal undertone. Long finish. Medium body and a bit flat. Disappointing.
