tightslice (1177) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is dark sweet fruits (figs, prunes), mild chocolate, mild herbal aperitif, burnt sugar. Taste is figs, black cherries...but not quite leathery dried fruit (somehow both juicy and dry). Very rich dark fruit notes and then mildly herbal / bitter. Mouthfeel is pristine...great balance of fizzy and creamy. This beer is definitely on another level. Supremely classic.

ffbot (403) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Smell of wood, licorice, maple, dense chocolate fruit, leather, and dark basement. Taste is licorice, maple, chocolate cookie, sweet fruitiness, and balanced well. In the glass it looks awesome, still black with a giant thick head that retains. If this doesnt get a perfect score I dunno what does

mathieuc (3860) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2016
Pours a very dark brown with a medium beige head that leaves awesome lacing. Nose is of dark fruits, dark sugar and alcohol. Taste is not quite sweet and offers raisins, figs and candi sugar. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel while a little syrupy is never heavy. Overall a solid quadrupel but the mouthfeel is not even close to Rocheforts really and dark fruits flavors could be more upfront.

ljthiessen (1255) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 18, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown, nearly opaque pour with a rich tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, spices, Belgian yeast, rich and complex, some fruitcake and candy notes, but also slightly roasty. Taste is fairly rich for the style, some chocolate up front, sweet dark fruit and fruitcake spices, raisin, lots going on here but very tasty and nicely balanced.

Hungover (103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2016
Dark brown in color with twoish fingers of head. Rich and creamy without being overly thick. Medium mouthful. Cherry notes and great subtle booze warmth in the finish. Really impressive.

Adamsville (300) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Apparence : Brune trs fonce, reflets cuivres, trouble, lger col brun fonc ayant une bonne rtention et une belle dentelle, plutt crmeux, carbonatation semble moyenne.
Nez : Levure Unibroue, pices, malt.
Got : Toast, malt grill, notes brles rappelant le caf, trs lger caramel avec une trame de fond pice non-ngligeable de la levure typique de la maison.
Sensation : Effervescence moyenne-plus (ou seraient-ce les pices?), corps moyen tout comme la longueur en bouche.
Bref : Je dois dire dentre de jeu que je mattendais plus. Javais t quelque peu du par leurs autre offrandes fonces et je voulais plus de celle-ci. Dabord, juste au nez, je ne crois pas que jaurais su que javais affaire une Unibroue que je navais pas gote. Leur levure est omniprsente. Ensuite, lentre en bouche est trop effervescente mon got et le corps un peu trop mince. Au got, cest bien, sans plus. On finit le verre en jasant, mais on nanticipe pas avec excitation la gorge suivante.

rubyroo (146) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2016 Pours 2 thick fingers of foam, that shrinks to a pillowy beige layer of head. Smell is sweet and bready, some vanilla. Taste is dates, stone fruit, peppery Belgian yeast, Carmel, light vanilla, cola. Palate is medium bodied, with above average carbonation starts sweet finishes dry and peppery. Some alcohol warmth, not overwhelming. Overall- A delicious and complex Quad

googleimage83 (139) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours extremely dark brown, effectively black... creamy tan head is fizzy at first, but a mocha layer lingers for a long time. Aroma is sweet - toffee, dark berries, currant, gingerbread spice; slight overripe fruit note. Taste is cherry, currant, fig, spice. Some roasty malts, slightly tart finish. Flavours are just a touch thin for my liking. Impressively creamy mouthfeel, both rich and lively. Excellent, but a couple minor flaws keep it from top-tier status.
