1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Belmont Station. A: Dark brown like sewer water. Very thin head. N: Good god, this is wretched. Spoiled prunes, caramel, glue, funk, and acetone. Raspberry and cherry. Is this infected? It has to be infected. T: Not as bad as the nose, but itís still leaning towards the sour side of things. Some malt, and the candi sugar is still lending sweetness. M: Medium bodied and dry. Not awful, but nicely bready like a good quad. O: If you can see past the nose, I guess it can be drunk. Maybe Iíll try this again from the bottle, because this is terrible.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This Quad didnít have much for a head, but beside that is had great notes of alcohol and fruit at the beginning. It finished strong with that oak barreled cab flavor that really stood out in this beer compared to others. I personally really enjoyed it.
