750ml bottle. Pours a pretty auburn, red color. Nice head that quickly dissipates with very thin lacing. Nose is estery fruit characters, lots going on. Some leafy, woody things. Booze is well hidden. Taste is dry, bitter fruit and some mild to medium sweetness. Some bittering hops. Almost barleywine-esque. Very nice beer. Mouth feel is medium body and a nice crisp carbonation. Definitely would buy again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 12oz bottle, poured into a goblet. The aroma is bright and intense with initial boubon vanilla and caramel notes. The aroma of caramel stays and is joined by fruity notes of nectarine, banana, citrus, pineapple, and some clove-like spices. It pours a murky auburn hue with foamy, dense soap, beige foam head that exhibits great retention and a mild lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium / medium low spicy bitter. The texture is thick with abundant foamy carbonation. The full body is flavors with ripe, fleshy fruit, molasses, and wood with a zippy, crisp finish of spice and molasses with late, light plum notes and it leaves a bitter wood and leafy aftertaste with a note molasses.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sherbrooke. Cork almost took out my eye when it popped off. Deep reddish amber with lots of bubbles that quickly fade. Funky, with cherry, banana, and alcohol dominating the aroma and cough syrup and sugar in the background. Fairly dry, hints of caramel and clove, but mostly just alcohol burn and the accompanying bitterness. This doesn’t taste like your usual quad... the alcohol is very apparent and there’s not a lot of malty or hoppy or yeasty body to it. If someone told me this was a brandy I would be impressed and wouldn’t question it at all. Not bad, but also not anywhere close to being on-style as a quad. If you’re expecting a big, malty, fruity, syrupy quad, look elsewhere. If you can appreciate a good brandy or scotch, this might be more for you.
