tightslice (1438) - 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.

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 doesn’t get a perfect score I dunno what does

Bottle pours brown with a off white head. This is a very good beer, enjoyed every drop.

mathieuc (4000) - Québec, 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 Rochefort’s really and dark fruits flavors could be more upfront.

ljthiessen (1438) - 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 (109) - 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.

3.6
Adamsville (391) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Apparence : Brune très foncée, reflets cuivres, trouble, léger col brun foncé ayant une bonne rétention et une belle dentelle, plutôt crémeux, carbonatation semble moyenne.
Nez : Levure Unibroue, épices, malt.
Goût : Toasté, malt grillé, notes brûlées rappelant le café, très léger caramel avec une trame de fond épicée non-négligeable de la levure typique de la maison.
Sensation : Effervescence moyenne-plus (ou seraient-ce les épices?), corps moyen tout comme la longueur en bouche.
Bref : Je dois dire d’entrée de jeu que je m’attendais à plus. J’avais été quelque peu déçu par leurs autre offrandes foncées et je voulais plus de celle-ci. D’abord, juste au nez, je ne crois pas que j’aurais su que j’avais affaire à une Unibroue que je n’avais pas goûtée. Leur levure est omniprésente. Ensuite, l’entrée en bouche est trop effervescente à mon goût et le corps un peu trop mince. Au goût, c’est bien, sans plus. On finit le verre en jasant, mais on n’anticipe pas avec excitation la gorgée 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

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.
