What the brewers say

“Cherry on the nose. Bold, rich, and malty, dark sugar, full creamy body.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sherry, tobacco, damascenone (red berries, tobacco), vinous. There’s very much an aged or cellared character that is certainly interesting. The cherries sneak in and have a red ‘classic’ cherry-candy aroma. Some rich malt. Rich caramel and toasted malt character, and some definite alcoholic heat. Bordering on some barleywine qualities.”

Flavor: “Classic Belgian quad with background cherry. Massive dark stone-fruit character floats on top of a traditional quad malt bill. The cherries are well blended with the fermentation esters and phenolics, and the alcohol is present but not hot. The finish is dry with some lingering perceived sweetness, and the high ABV kind of numbs your palate. A bit more carbonation would make everything pop just a touch.”

Overall: “A rich Belgium quad with a complement of dark fruits flavors and esters. Complex aged or cellar character. I could see wandering into the cellar and wiping the dust off a bottle you’d forgotten about. Interesting beer but in very small amounts. Enjoy and savor.”
