Avery just never disappoints me. Iím not a huge fan of quads, I tend to enjoy dubbels more. Quads can be too sweet and rich for me. But this one is perfect. It pours the color of strong iced tea, with about as much foam. The aroma has spiced notes, oranges, mild coffee. The flavor adds yams, caramel, apple-butter. Itís sweet, but not overly so. Not extremely rich. The 10% abv is hidden in the smooth malt backbone. Well done.

Bottle share at Evernote. Overall notes of honey, molasses, malt liqour. Thereís a touch of something too candy / cherry syrup / artificial here that I didnít enjoy.

Nice aroma of your typical candi sugar and bananas, but the cherries were a nice touch. Sweet with Belgian hallmarks, yeast, and a little cherry.

Tap at CBM Jimbocho, Tokyo. Hazy copper shade with just a ring of bubbles. Aroma has a nice touch of red grape and brown sugar. Taste is similar with caramel notes and chewy raisin maltiness. Nice enough, but to me a good quad is a complex beast, and this seems rather simple.

Itís been a while since I found a different quad Iíve liked. The Reverend on draft at the Craft Ale House in Limerick fit the bill! The beer poured cloudy brown with a very huge tan head. The head laced nicely around the inside of the glass. The nose was sweet, with notes of sugar, wood, alcohol and light grassy hops. The Reverend was extremely delicious and smooth, with a creamy quality to the body. I tasted some light caramel flavors, along with cherry, candy sugar, molasses and light flowery hops. This is an outstanding quad!
