4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This poured a dark amber with a finger of creamy head. Aroma has some raisins, licorice and candi sugar. Body is fairly rich and full, like a good quad should. The mouthfeel is also very smooth with extremely soft carbonation. Taste has strong dark fruit like raisin and plum. Burnt caramel sweetness is also quite prevalent on the aftertaste. This is an extremely well balanced quad.

Can (cool). Dark red-brown pour with sour-wet-funk nose. Fig newtons. Body is a touch boozy but smooth. Dark mulled fruits, fig loaf. Sesame-nutty, some dry bittering but mostly wet, almost sour-red finish. I’ll buy the copper taste .. blood!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a nice brown color into Hellbilly’s grandfathers beer glass. Small off white head. Caramel, yeast, bread, light hops, and some alcohol in the nose. Flavor is strong with alcohol, but has a good bitter bite that balances both the alcohol and caramel malt flavor. Very good beer.

Can from bleeng
Pours a deep deep mahogany/amber with a syrupy body. Aroma is Isopryl alcohol, spice, and malty yeast. Flavor is a sudden onset of plant and cinammon and then water. Thin mouthfeel. Let this one bleed dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Baker for the cans! Poured clear reddish-amber with a creamy cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet bread, molasses, and fig notes with earth and dry peppery yeast accents.. warm and sweet overall.. dark and sweet overall. The flavor found more of the molasses and fig sugars at the core.. honey, bread, and dates were secondary.. dry Belgian-inspired yeast laced throughout.. lots of residual sugars on the finish. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate with decent balance.. spicy and warm on the tasty finish.. solid, but not spectacular.

Can. Pours opaque reddish brown, off white head. Aroma is metal, malt, caramel, pickles. Flavor is malty, metallic, wheaty, soapy. Has an odd pickled taste. Not a fan. Remember folks, unless you’re a vampire, blood doesn’t taste very good either.

Can at the brewpub in San Fran. Pours a brown color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet toasted fruity oak. The flavor is strawberries, oak, sweet and fruity, nutty, figs, lots of things to like. Not a overly sweet Quad which is good to see. Rich and easygoing. Nice.

My first shot at the 21st Amendment Brewery.
A pretty good Belgian style ale. Flavors are little drier than what might be expected with some a hint of tart in the finish. Still contains notes of dark fruits and has a substantial yeast aroma.
