Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 23, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2005 Delaware seems to be a hotbed for big Belgian interpretatiions of beer for whatever reason. This one had a very nice woody smell to it with some mild fig and raisin undertones. Tasted of vanilla extract, maple syrup, maple, raisins and figs. Very Tasty.

Shag (2843) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2005
A dark brown appearance. The alcohol really stood out along with a strong whiskey flavor. Syrupy sweet with a strong molasses and grape flavor. This one seems to be overwhelmed by the whiskey flavor. I would stick with the regular quad personally.

hopdog (11653) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2005
UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 On tap at Wilmington as part of their Belgian Beer Fest. Poure a dark brown color with a very small off white head. Aromas of oak, vanilla, bourbon and dark fruits. Tastes of vanilla, bourbon, oak, molasses, wine, and brown sugar, Sweet. Alcohol bit in the finish. Call me an oak barrel sucker, but I enjoyed this one,

desurfer (1290) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Wilmington location. I must not be a huge fan of oak-aged beers. Pours an opaque ruby with no head. Aroma dominated by a sweet wine-ness. Flavor has some Belgian character and alcohol zing, but mostly it tastes like merlot. I really enjoyed the original quad, but this has an overwhelming wine character that totally kills any beer-related taste.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Dark brown. Smells of oak, vanilla, and, not surprisingly, very vinous. Tastes of molasses and vanilla, very strong character from the merlot barrels. Syrupy.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Aged 4 months in Merlot Barrels, growler thanks to egajdzis: Hazy brownish red with no head(probably due to growler). Aroma: mild alcohol, chocolate, wine, port, oak, vanilla, molasses. Taste: banana, malty, alcohol, bitter red wine, very dry port, vanilla, oak, caramel. Nice beer, interesting notes from the merlot barrels.

Aged 4 months in Merlot Barrels - served from a growler Slightly hazy brown maple syrup looking body. Minimal head. The aroma is lightly oaky, quite vinious, alcohol, sweet syrup and molasses. Flavro is sweet very malty with a good amount of vinious fruity backing. Not a typical quad at all. Medium sticky body. Interesting stuff!

egajdzis (6135) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2004
UPDATED: APR 24, 2005 Aged 4 months in Chadds Ford Merlot Barrels... Poured a dark brown color with a thin, off white film for a head that left no lacing on the glass. A very complex aroma of vanilla, plums, raisins, molasses, and sweet honey. Taste was also sweet, of more vanilla oak, caramel malt, light roast, vinous, grape, that finishes alcoholic. A different, though very nice quad. I enjoyed this big time.
