Ernest (6216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, fully lasting. Body is medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, milk chocolate), with notes of marshmallow, candy/brown sugar, alcohol, mint. Flavor is heavily to harshly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Full body, syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Ugh...a big, dumb sugar bomb. Syrupy and thick and unrelentingly sweet. Very difficult to drink. In a blind tasting I’d swear The Bruery made this.

thirdeye11 (5544) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2013
(750ml bottle) cloudy dark brown, creamy lasting soapy head, meringue like. Nose of rich raisin, sweet bread, Belgian yeast, other dark fruits, bready spices. Taste of raisin, alcohol, bit harsh, better as it warms, cola root, the finish and alcohol heat is my least favorite part. Decent quad though.

sjohnny (371) - - JUN 14, 2013
Earthy, fruity with a hint of nasty aroma. Pours a murky dark brown with a really thick foamy tan head. Roasted malt and a hint of coffee and cocoa. Dry finish. More like a stout than a quad. Not bad but I won’t be getting any more.

PriorL (1777) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2013
33cl bottle. APPEARANCE: dark brown beer, small unstable beige head. NOSE: burned malts, little smoked, coffee, chocolate, some caramel. TASTE: lots of burned malts, something ’green’ afterwards, liquorice, long lasting coffee taste, somewhat bitter. Very heavy to drink... Good beer, but not my kind of thing...

Borresteijn (4677) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Hopduvel, Gent. Dark brown colour, beige head. Aroma of sweet dark malts, dark fruits, yeast, a bit of cellar, almost vinous. Resembles St. Bernardus a bit imho. Flavour is medium-sweet, quite malty, chocolate, dark fruits, raisin and grape, toast, firm hoppy and light roasted bitter finish, bordering on herbal. Medium to full-bodied, soft mouthfeel. Tasty.

jcnielsen (2099) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle sampled in Exira, IA. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a dark brown color with off white head. Malty, dark fruit flavors. Some metallic flavors.

Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Pours a cloudy, reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Candy sugar, plum, caramel, chocolate, dark grape aroma. Nutmeg/cinnamon-like spiciness in the flavor. Chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruity, date flavor. Definitely a different take on a Quad but pretty tasty.

I had a hard time finding anything on this beer online. It seems to be new to Ratebeer, and I’ve certainly never heard of it. But I’ll not often turn down a quad. So... sounds good to me! So dark brown/red in color that it almost looks black, it has a thin, off white head that leaves more foam on the glass than atop the beer. Although fruity in the nose, it’s different from your every day quad, with cherries and plums dominating. I know, that doesn’t sound so new. But it is very different. It’s more flavor than sweet, with a high alcohol and crystallized malt sweetness sticking around in the finish. Strange, eh? Sweetness only shows up in the finish... leaving your palate to spend most of its time enjoying the flavors for all they’re worth without the obstruction of residual sweetness. Classy, smooth, like sinking your teeth into a fermented plum. That about sums it up. You know the alcohol has to be high, but it’s kind to you. It’s a respecting beer, and because of its professionalism also deserves some respect, too.
