All from memory, i think the bottle was 2+ years. Aroma was sweet, rich bread, floral alcohol with marshmallowy/floral/candy sweetness, prunes, cherries and figs; maybe faint vanilla and cocoa. The same in the flavor with more cocoa and vanilla. Palate was a dream, smooth and creamy, sweet and slightly thin. Unfortunately drinkable. Finish was lightly sticking with the sweet fruity, floral candy, bread and chocolate, and requisitly dry and alcoholic. Pretty damn awesome.

From a bottle purchased in 2006, stored properly. Poured a nice mohagany brown with a decent sized coffee-and-cream head. Aromas typical of Quads: roasted malt, caramel, raisins. Mouthfeel was nice, with some biting alcohol notes, and some light flowery notes.

Bottle from padrefan98, thanks a million Jon for the number one rated beer on the planet. Pours a solid dark brown with lighter brown edges and some visible floaties but due to the darkness of the body they are only visible on the outer edges. Average size foamy white head that leaves a sheet of lace on the backside of my Ommegang gold rimmed chalice. Aroma is loaded with fruit notes, dark plums, banana, plum, prunes, raisins, vanilla, slight alcohol notes, dark sweet bread, and butter soaked brown sugar. Flavor is sweet with notes of fruit, especially raisin, plum, toffee, molassess, brown bread, alcohol, Flavor was close to a 10 but the alcohol on the backend was just a little to obvious. Super complex beer and very worthy of the hype. A perfect beer to celebrate the birth of my first child with so once again a big thanks to padrefan98.

Had this beer serveral times mostly provided by jonathonl. It has a nicd bone head on it and the nose is spice, cloves, and raisins. The beer was damn good. Just over hyped due to the difficult of getting this beer.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2012 Bottle thanks to bitbucket. Had it a couple weeks ago with friends. The pour was a darker brown, with two fingures of head. The aroma was solid. When I took a sip, it hit me. I simply said wow. The carmel with fruit taste was amazing. It seemed every sip I took, I noticed something different.

This is the most amazing beer on the planet. The smoothness of the beer, the substantial head, and complex flavors made it like nothing else.

bottle thanks to bhops. poured a murky brown with a white head and some sediment floating around. aroma was very pleasant with vanilla, brown sugar, plum, and dark fruit. flavor was the same. light body and low carb. is it a great beer? yes. is it #1? not in my opinion.

grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle. Poured a nice brownish color with a creamy white head. Aroma is dark fruit, sour cherry, vanilla and some caramel. Taste is lots of sweet malt and dark fruit. very easy to drink with a nice alcohol burn on the way down. Awsome.
