Ovila Abbey Quad with plums is heady with aromas of caramel, rich malt, and dark fruit-balanced by the spiciness and delicate fruity notes of a traditional Belgian yeast. This beer features sugar plums grown on the grounds of the Abbey, and harvested by the monks in Vina. We hope you enjoy this collaboration ale.

Bottle pour. Pours a pitch black. Nice notes of aged plums. Strong aroma. Pretty disappointed. Flavor isnít bad but the palate is extremely weak and contributes to a loss of what could be a big flavor profile.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with the cork and cage. Great label artwork. It has a chestnut brown pour with a short-lasting off-white head and good clarity. Some red hues with the light. Yup, the aroma tells me it is a Quad with its Belgian sweet notes, yeast, dark malts, hop bite, and plum. Medium body. Like the aroma the overall impression is sweet at first and biting at the finish. Slight lingering booziness. Dry ending. Nicely done.

Hey, really enjoyed this. Iím thinking I will finally have to change my favorite beer from an imperial Russian stout to a Belgian quad (ironic this comes from a quad not brewed in Belgium.

On tap at Selma's in Ladera Ranch. Bold plum notes in aroma and flavor, but not overbearing. Slightly sweet, brown sugar, rich malt, hint of spiciness. ABV very well hidden. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

375 ml bottle cork and caged. Missed this each time it was on draft. No matter. Rich and full body quad with deep fruit flavors. Plum totally stands out. Very tasty and right for the price.

Bottle with a cork. Rich dark pour of purple reddish stout. Excellent for those cold winters nights. Deep and heavy with plum tastes. The Ovila label is really producing some excellent ales and this one is no different. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer! I was pleasantly surprised that the plums were more of a whisper on the palate than an overbearing fruitiness. Quite a nice touch!
