From the brewpub in Phoenixville, PA. The aroma rises right right out of the bottle, a nice bouquet of dark fruit, bread, malts, candi sugar, light pepper. The appearance is a deep brown red, cream colored head. The flavor is sweet, malty, dark, ripe fruit, candi sugar, bread, really nice. The finish is sweet, than lightly spicy, pepper, pine. Medium/thick in body, syrupy mouthfeel. Nicely done. Typical for a quad, and a nice representation of the style.

One of the first micro brews I ever bought knowing what it is was. Prior to this, I drank Sierra Nevada and Duvel. Picked up this 750ML in August of 2011 at Iron Hill Brewery. I think it was $12. Enjoyed in June of ’13 in a wine stemware. Poured a very dark, plum-like blood red with a small white head that faded to a thin line. Smell is pretty explosive. Sweet like cherries with currants and caramel. Frankly, more like a barleywine than a quad. Maybe it’s the aging? Very sweet up front, lots of bitter hops, finish is sweet and bitter. I get some figs, bready yeast There’s a hint of metallic aspects. Very candy-like. Not very boozy.

Amber with a white head. Aroma is full of toffee and bready malt. Flavor is toffee, sugar, yeast, dark fruit, raisins and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Deep hazy amber with rimming beige head aroma of strong malt flavor is malty yet nice bite of hops and alcohol reminds me of a barley wine YES! Feel thick and rich with some fizzy bite.

PhillyCraft (3166) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Growler from Brian shared with a good 10-11 people at Frank’s End of the World tasting. Poured a hazy reddish brown color with nice tan head. Lots of dark pitted fruit, candy sugar, malt, plums, and other belgian tasting stuff. A little hot and lacking balance overall. Decent quad but notjing special.

Dorwart (2370) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Decent sized head of off-white bubbles that reduced somewhat quickly to a thin sheet of foam on the surface. Light carbonation. Rich aroma with lots of candi sugar, some ripe fruit, a bit of yeast overtones and a lot of malts. Color is a cloudy mahagony brown. Wow, fantastic flavor. Sweet and malty with more ripe fruit and brown sugar. Big chewey palate with a big alcohol kick and presence. Sweet, malty and alcoholic finish. A fantastic brew!

Bottle. Pours murky brown with tan head. Nose/taste of dark fruits, sweet malt, dark caramel, candi sugar, prune and grape skin. Finishes with a sweet prune and grape malt. Not overly sweet. Medium body.

keanex (1423) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2012
On tap at Maple Shade Iron Hill.

A: Murky brown body with a light tan head.

S: Light sweetness coming through, light sugar and fruit notes. Not as strong as I would have liked and not too appealing.

T: Malty and sweet fruits with some sugar, but not nearly as sweet as expected, a very thin on flavor in comparison to things like Abt 12.

M: Full bodied, light fizzy carbonation.

O: Nothing to compare to real Belgian quads, this is just too thin and bland in comparison. It was a big disappointment really.

Pour is dark red/brown with a thin white head. Aroma is very sweet with notes of cherries, plums, and belgian yeast. Flavor is sweet as well with huge notes of candied sugar, bananas, and a slight spice finish. Not very well balanced, but if you are a fan of sweet beers then this is worth a try.
