Leo’s South Point, OH - What do you get when you brew a dark beer in the Belgian style? Something La Terrible...but really tasty. A plum, grape, and alcohol infused nose rises from a Cherry Coke color body giving the beer a smooth, yeasty, and nicely carbonated flavor and body. For a "Dark Belgian," this beer doesn’t disappoint.
Pours nearly black with a thick, foamy head that recedes quickly. Aroma is dried fruit and spice (cinnamon, plus something else - maybe clove). Taste is at once plum and brown sugar, warming to various spices, especially clove, as well as some light roast. Finish is where the Belgian yeast shows up. A really tasty beer. brownaler (751) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2017

Pours Black with the big tan head. The aroma is of dark fruit and the flavor is more of a spice taste. Cloves? Overall a pretty good quad not my favorite though. sinfull (1875) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2017

Spicy aroma that also contains dark malt, some plum/fig and booze. Dark brown color with a tan head. Very pleasant to drink, well balanced and slightly sweet on the aftertaste. Just a tinge of booze heat but in this instance it serves to balance things out. A bit light on the palate. I would never have believed that this beer is 10.5% ABV. Quads are not usually my thing but Unibroue knocked it out of the park with this one. TEJA (3399) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2017

I wanted to finish my 150th with a great beer. I got this one as a trade with a friend, bullseye. partchapol (143) - Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Smell of yeast, caramel, date, roasted malt. Come in black dark brown with thin cream crown. Taste of balanced sour yeast and sweet bitter malt, with some raisins. Close to Belgium quadruple beer but with less spice for commoners like us. Could experiment more on that. Overall it’s very good beer.
