3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(375ml split) Small frothy tan head. Falls after a minute, or so. Very dark burgundy colored body. Slight grainy aroma. Alcoholy flavor. But, not over the top as would be expected at 10%+ alcohol. Bit of plummy aftertaste perhaps. Body is thicker than some quads I’ve had. Nice beer when, especially when you factor in the relatively inexpensive cost for a quad. But, it doesn’t knock my socks off.

Very minimal head, looks surprisingly similar to cola, especially when light shines through. The plums add a fair amount of bitterness to it but it remains very drinkable and hides it’s high alcohol content very well, fizzy on the tongue and smooth going down.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear but very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is cocoa and coffee. Taste is tart with roasted malt, plum brandy, chocolate and espresso. Smooth, yet complex. Exceptional.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Roasted malty aroma, almost coffee like. Taste is malt and candy sugar sweet. Do not get much of the plum. Tastes like a sweet Belgian quad. Very good and full flavored, but on the sweet side.

It’s a nice dark brown with some tan bubbles, garnet tones. I smell booze, spice, some funk, and some nice fruity plums. Man, what a delicious Belgian variation. Malty, caramel, pepper, bitter, dark fruit. The carb is soft but adequate, full flavored, medium-full palate. I love the style and I love this in particular.

Plums add a nice touch to this dark beer, a touch of sweetness to the normal dried fruit essence of this style. Velvety smooth, dark grain aroma, taste is sweet fruit, chocolate, no evidence of the high abv. Really nice quad.

Draft - Dark fruit, brown sugar and the sweet plum. Jet black with a rich light brown head. Brown sugar, dark fruit and boozy Belgian yeastSlight plum in the finish, but not much. I love the quad, I just wish the plums were more pronounced.
