Friar’s Quad - a Belgian-style ale whose flavor is as bold as my wife’s meat loaf - and four times as tasty, 8b’dump-tssssh* But I kid, folks. This ale is a real mensch. We’re here all week.

Murky brown pour with a hint of purple to it. Foamed a but out of the bottle, but head is small. High alcohol equals low retention. A little estery aroma of fruits and candy. Flavor Is lots of dark fruit with good acidity. Grape, plum, cherry. Some caramel and sharp spicy esters. Mouthfeel is moderate, light for the style. Reminds me of trois pistoles. NEBCO does not disappoint.

I gotta tell a story about these guys. I stopped by, and they only had one beer on tap, which I had already tried. While that was an awesome beer, and I had no problem with that being the only option, pull this bottle, unlabeled, out of a case, stuck on a label and sold it to me for four bucks. They also marked down a second bottle, so I walk out of there with two quality beers in large formats for $8. They didn’t have to do that, and they did. Massive karma to those guys. So, well, bottle from the brewery. About 18 months on it. Pours a dark rust-brown color with a thin head that quickly fades. Aroma of dark fruits, brown sugar, mild chocolate. The taste is dark fruits, citrus, toffee malts, mild bread and spice. Medium bodied, alcohol is prickly but not hot, low carbonation, no oxidation. Solid quad that has aged pretty well.

Bottle. From trade. Nose of burnt sugar and fruit. A little dark chocolate. Taste is a little bitter and kind of lacking compared to the nose. Still very

Dark brown rum like color..nose is vanilla bourbon laden with obvious raisin..sweet malt base..toasted almond..nose is the best part here..mouthfeel is a bit of a let down and thin..slight cider qualities..no feel of the abv..has a buttered rum profile..finishes fairly dry and by the end of the bottle the abv is felt..not bad..however probably my least favorite by nebco that I have tried..
