bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark brown, beige head that drops rapidly to a cover, bands of lace. Aroma of malt and prune, along with other dried fruit. Taste is syrupy caramel malt that warms with alcohol on the swallow, showing prunes and raisins in a medium finish with very little bittering. Fairly, heavy in the stomach, thick, not a good example of a Quad.

Bottle found by accident in Delhaize in Lochristi. Pours dark brown with a medium beige head. Not so much carbonation... Caramel is overpowering, chocolate, malts, very sweet. Cloves, cinnamon.

Bottle from MoC, Eugene. Pours a dark reddish amber, little to no off white head. Aroma dried fruit, prunes, figs, maybe some candi sugar. Body medium, finish very sweet. Fine for the style, but abts aren’t generally my thing, so yeah.

22 oz. bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage wear house. Dark brown, nearly black color with lasting head retention. Aroma is dark malts, Belgian yeast and toasted bread.

The flavor is mostly the same as the aroma. Yeast up front with candy sugar blast that lingers throughout the sip. Hints of chocolate and tobacco. Light notes of ABV, still pretty drinkable. Bottle is at least two years old and still has a nice level of carbonation, lightly creamy. Classic example of the style.

Traded bottle. Cork limped out of the completely flat bottle. Just a weird quad. Kind of spicy with some coffee too. The yeast was right but it wandered from there. Meh.

8/II/14 - 33cl bottle @ De Lozen Boer (Lochristi) - BB: n/a (2014-182) Thanks to Mathieu and Barbara for the great wedding party!

Clear dark brown to purple beer, very creamy beige head, stable, adhesive. Aroma: quite some caramel, chocolate, sugary, sweet malts, dried fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: bit sweet, malty, some chocolate, pretty bitter hops, more dark chocolate, bit chemical, some overripe fruits. Aftertaste: again chocolate, roasted malts, some mocha, dried fruits, ripe banana, bitter hops and even more chocolate. Very decent beer!

Not a bad quad, though nothing particularly astounding. Tons of dark fruit spicing with some clove and cinnamon.
