The aroma is dominated by cognac, with hints of flowers, prunes, grapes almond and vanilla. On the palate, warmth and the grape fruitiness of cognac. The finish is oaky, malty and, finally, speaks of grape. A beautiful marriage of Quad and Cognac from start to finish.

Bottle, courtesy of myself... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a deep red with a smallish head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma offers plenty of toffee & brandy. It’s got lots of oak & fig, some big booze notes & some vanilla.

The flavor is plenty boozy, but not unpleasantly so. It’s got a nice sweetness with some rich flavors of plum, pear, caramel, and vanilla to match. The oak is pretty darned pronounced here, but it’s also quite rich... which is to say that at no point does the beer come across as annoyingly woody. It’s defiantly got a really well integrated presence of cognac as well.

Really very good, sometimes I forgot how great a well done Quad can be.
