Dark amber hue in my snifter, off white head with ok retention reduces to a small cap. Scent is dark fruit heavy: plum and raisen. Burnt sugar, yeast. Taste is a bit more muted, but sweet. Light bodied and well carbonated. I find it hard to fathom that 9% abv can be this well hidden, but it is.

66 cl bottle, thanks to Lukasmh! Clear brown with a small, white head. Aroma has lots of Belgian esters, prunes, dates, figs, licorice, vinous alcohol. Taste has sweet, fruity flavors up front, some bitter, toasted malts, alcohol, dry and sweet finish. Pretty full body and medium carb. Not bad!

Bottle. Pours brown mahogany with small beige head. Aroma is big on dried dark fruits. Caramel and mollasses. Slight toast and eatery. Taste is sweet dried fruits, malty caramel. Some anis and liquorice in the end. Nice American take on quad. Smooth body.

The plum flavor is very prominent. Has a beautiful aroma and smooth to drink. Just a little funky in the finish.

Serving: Bottle at Birch & Barley. It pours a dark cola like color with a dense, lasting head. There is a bit of stone fruit in the nose with some Belgian yeast esters. The flavor is a little sweet with notes of raisin, a little date, yeast, dark caramel, and candy sugar. It doesn’t have the depth of flavor or the robust mouthfeel of some the better Belgian quads. Pretty good.

Woozy!!! Lovely plums! This is a fruity quad. A bit dry. Straight rocket warmth to the brain. Sweet and playful. A bit wine like if not carbonated. Bitter after. Dark and deep brown. Small head. Lovely. Just lovely. A great starter quad for the uneducated.

"pretty good beer - but for a quad, a little under what i’ hoped. sweet candy-like aroma and flavor. very malty, almost sticky, which can work for the style, but it was one dimensional for sure. not enough belgian yeast coming through, and i thought it tasted a little too much like another beer or two of theres...so maybe i’m looking for less house flavor and more difference between styles. still nice after all that :)"

Gosh darn, gol dang Europeans haven’t got anything better to do than to drink ’our’ beer and make their nice comments about it, dag nab it! By gum, this here beer is brewed in Somerville, Massachusetts by red-blooded Americans! I wouldn’t put it in the same class as the various Belgian Trappistes, but it is an impressive offering from the Somervillians, or perhaps the Somer-villains, I was never sure in all the years I lived there. I’m proud of you lads. If the Euros like it, it’s probably pretty damn good!

Dark coppery pour producing a small tanned head. Aroma of malts, red berries and yeast. Taste is also malt-driven but has a nice touch of fruityness. Full bodied and softly carbonated.
