dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Sample for beerfest. Poured a dark amber color. No head. Aroma was dark fruits. Some fig, candy apple, plum and sugars where in there. Flavor was molasses, brown sugar, plum, fig and other dark fruit. Big malt presance. Sugar and sweet on the palate. Big aggressive beet. Syrupy. Longer finish. Very tasty.

vyvvy (5534) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has light sourness, toffee, dark nectar fruits and rich caramel along with the fruit Belgian yeast. The body is full and rich with a big lushness to it. The flavor starts with rich fruitiness, big malty presence, sweetness (just the right amt) and thick rich dark fruit. The finish is fruity and delicious. While the flavors are big enough to easily believe this is 11.5% I didn’t get any of the warmth or burn that’s usually associated with beers this high in alcohol.

jcnielsen (3129) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest. Chocolate, malty, caramel, and some booze in the flavor. Pretty good american quad, but doesn’t quite live up to some belgian quads.

phaleslu (9255) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Draft sample at MWBBF. Pours a murky brown-amber color with no head whatsoever. The aroma has a ton of sweet malts and dark fruits; brown sugar, plum, raisin, caramel, and even some earthiness. The flavor follows the same lines, with plum, caramel, brown sugar, raisin, leaves, earth, and fig. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Rich, malty, fruity, and sweet. Great American take on a Belgian quad.
