I've had this beer in the past, yet never took the time to rate it. So, I went to my local beer store and bought a caged and corked bottle, and it tasted not how I remembered it. Why? Likely because it's two years past date, which explains why the bottle was so inexpensive. Therefore, this review is skewed; I will redo this one with a fresh bottle, when I find one. As for what I poured....it was amber-brown in color with no head or lacing. Aroma: brown sugar, cherries. Flavor: the above, with brown bread, dark dried fruits, and wet newspaper (the unpleasant part of the flavor profile -- obviously because of its age and storage...not cellared). Mouthfeel: medium-bodied.

Definitely need to let this one warm up a bit. I am having a hard time describing this one. It is fairly complex and kind of unique. Lightly carbonated. You don't notice the alcohol much even though it is 9%. It is far from my favorite quad but it is pretty good. Second tasting 3-8-16. This time I much enjoyed sipping it cold. Notes of raisin and plum. Spicy notes, pepper? Strong Belgium Yeast notes. Definitely becomes more subtle and complex as it warms. Quite enjoyed it this go-round Had it a couple of times this year and have not really cared for it. I knocked it down from a 4.5 to a 3.5 and removed it from my favorites ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle, thx RB. Pours dark brown with reddish edges and a dense, lasting beige head with good lacing. Aromas of dark dried fruit, burnt sugar, sweet malt, molasses, apples and oranges. Dark, sweet stewed fruit flavors, toffee, earth, roasted malt, cocoa, prunes, raisins. Full bodied with high carbonation. Long delicious fruit and roasted malt finish. Well-hidden alcohol.

Jabic (656) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 6, 2017
Ar: Black pepper, blackcurrant, pear, and plum; zesty peaches, coated in brown-sugar glaze. Ap: Deep ruby-brown; medium very-light mocha head with moderate-good retention, leaving a blanket of froth across the top. T: Plum, licorice, and grape; dark candied fruit and the slightest char; clean, warming alcohol; bitterness is medium-high, with a mossy, peppery hop flavor; treacle and anise on the finish. P: Medium body with very high carbonation, airy and creamy. O: Very enjoyable Belgian-style quad; effervescent and lush in the mouth, bursting with spice and fruit; deep and robust, with a classic Belgian yeast character.
