3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Malt & Vine. Pours dark amber with a huge foamy tan head. Smells a bit like wet dog - plus caramel and odd bits. Not funk, but related. Or could be fig. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is fruit of the medium dark type, with caramel, wood and some floral hop. Weird and wild stuff. Yet strangely mellow. There should be more beers like this. Almost develops chocolate in the finish. Ends a bit sweet, but that’s fair Belgian. It’s fair growin on me. I’d drink this anytime.

12 oz can. Pours a dark, yet clear reddish brown maple with a medium sized beige head. Has a ruby red tint to it. Aroma of sweet malt, light vanilla and dark fruit. Taste of watery dark fruit(dates, raisins, plums and prunes), lightly sweetened malt, toffee, vanilla and oak. A lot going on here, but the flavors just don"t stand out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. A reddish brown pour with a smallish tan head. An aroma of candied sugar, raisins, Fig Newtons, some vanilla, and hints of chocolate, roasted coffee, and a light oakiness. Goes down medium to full-bodied and just a touch syrupy. The flavor starts off quite sweet with a good deal of candied sugar, dark fruits, red apples, and caramel. Vanilla extract and dark chocolate follow. Finishes with a bit of a roasted coffee bitterness. Just enough alcohol present. Wintry spices throughout. An enjoyable winter warmer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can:   Deep chestnut, moderate to large foamy light beige head, fairly sticky lacing.   Sweet malty nose, faint dark pitted fruit and carob.   Slight vinous quality to this.   Some donut like bready sweetness, some frosting.   Smidgen of sourness.   This doesn’t come across as a Quad.   Somewhat of a Dubbel maybe.   Overall just a swett bready maltiness that isn’t overly heavy.   Decent beverage, but not a Quad by any means.
