COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cascara Quad is a dark, strong and surprisingly delicate ale made with dates and coffee cherries. Channeling the Trappist tradition, it’s brewed with an ethereal malt bill, and spiced with the fruit of the coffee bean (cascara). The aroma brings dates, cherries and pipe tobacco right to the nose and builds layers with hints of spice and fruity Belgian yeast. Once on the palate, Cascara Quad starts swinging clove, fig and molasses. Each sip offers sweet warmth, deep complexity and fleeting dryness.

Hops: Hallertauer Hersbrucker-Nobel, Styrian-Golding-Nobel
Malts: Pale, Munich, Caramel Munich, Biscuit, Black
Fruits/Spice: Belgium Amber Candy Sugar, Date Sugar, Cascara Tea
Body: Medium-Heavy
Aroma: Ripe figs, raisins, plums, black cherries, toffee, chocolate, pipe tobacco, rich Corinthian leather and leather bound books.
Mouthfeel: Starts big and smooth, finishes still smooth yet the cascara tea and higher ABV will bring a nice dry warm end to this epic novel.
Flavor: Sweet and rich, huge complex overall taste.
Visual: Brooding, dark, cloudy berry brown with tan head.

A strong boozy brew. Some of the spice aroma you’d expect from a Belgian, but the date and other fruit notes seemed a little out of place. At 10%, it brings the expected amount of alcohol notes, but I just can’t help but thing that there is something slightly unbalanced. Overall, not a bad buy or brew just not a home run either...

HourGlass13 (570) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Pours a dark amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is caramel, booze, cherry, malt, candy, spice, date, figs, plum, toffee. Taste is cherry and candied beans, plum, fig sweetness, warm spices, and plenty of booze. You feel the burn with this one. Very interesting beer, good, but you wouldn’t want a lot of it.

oldrtybastrd (4951) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2016
Pours a medium dark reddish amber color. Aromas of dark fruit, caramel, and some spice. Flavors are sour cherries, and some spice. Alcohol really dominates.

Beerman6686 (6189) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Poured a lighter brown with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, booze and earthy hops. Flavor similar, too sweet, too bitter, too boozy.

douglas88 (8192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Listed as Barrel Aged, but I suspect this is the proper rating. Anyway, on tap at the 2015 Holiday Ale Fest. A cloudy brown red color with a large white head. A big malty berry nose. The flavor is cherries, yeasty, vanilla, some heat and vanilla. Solid.

djd07 (9563) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2015
On tap at D&T. Pours a dark brown with thick creamy beige head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is yeast, brown sugar, figs. Medium mouth, strong yeast, sugary malt, toffee, lingering sweetness, very good.

Carlisle (469) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Draft (10 oz.). Opaque dark caramel color with thin tan head and substantial lacing. Toffee and caramel aroma. Figs and cherries upfront with alcohol in the finish. Lighter body than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lownote (494) - Austin, Alabama, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Oh my gosh cherries. Tart beautiful cherry aroma. Pours slightly cloudy and a brownish read with a lacy head. Taste is super sweet, with cherries very present. There’s some bitterness that lingers and I can’t tell what from? Fruit? Really thin and bubbly. The problem(???) with this beer is that I can’t taste the style. It’s just a delicious cherry ale. The alcohol burn starts asserting itself halfway in. Great otherwise.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber brown with a small off-white head. Aroma was malty with cherries, caramel and fruit. Flavor was quite sweet with dark fruit, dates, cherries, caramel and coffee.

Hazy amber color with ivory head. Fruit juice, berry fruit, Belgian yeast aromas. Medium bodied. Lightly tart citrus juice, berry fruit flavors with some caramel, spicy yeast---nicely sweet tart warming finish----good
