This is a very pleseant beer to drink.
You don’t get the 10% hit, it’s too easy drinking for that, which makes it kinda dangerous! :)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had several of these in my various European sojourns but never rated one. Pours a medium hazy mahogany amber with a medium size short lasting beige yellow head. Aromatic dried stone fruit and raisins, musty cellar and a touch of shoe polish and butterscotch aroma. Medium smooth, thinnish bodied lowish carb palate. Plenty of fruity malt sweetness and medium low bitterness start quickly transiting to a strange celeriac bitter and faint metallic after taste. Interesting enough but doesn’t really rate too well up against the big named quads. Alcohol also comes through perhaps too easily at the end. Many thanks to Kook for providing this one.

I really didnt mean to drinki this tonite, as i ment to share it with pauline, however i dont think she’ll know until she reads this in which case i may have another by then, hehe. Aroma is dominated by dark fruits and as my work mate who only ever drinks lager, apricots play a part too, obviously malt and other complex things come in for the quadness. Taste is very similar with again the apricots having thier say in the matter, good not to sweet finish. This is without doubt the weakest and most lacking in character of quads iv had, in sayign that this is a seriously good beer, though not the deep colour i would want, keeps good head. I wonder if aging would actuially help this fellow, i think he may actually be best fresh.

A nice malty aroma with a balance of hops. The color is a nice golden with an off white head. Nice flavor balance of caramel sweetness and hops.

750. Pours a light brown color with a fizzy white head. Nose is funky and stale, like old gym socks. Taste is also kinda funky, makes me cringe and wince. Notes of some caramel, hints of yeast and malt.

excellent quad, but not as good as Three Philosophers. MIlder and less complex, with a gentle rolling head effect rather than knocking your socks off.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very cloudy orange with decent though thin head. Aroma is a little nutty, cherry and plum, a bit of spice. Shines in the flavor though, with excellent nuttiness, sweet syrup, cinnamon. Warming, and a wonderful beer to lick your lips after sipping for a bit of sweetness (even better to make out with your woman ;)
