COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian, Strong, Pause . . . for a moment and letís consider the Possibilities. Sure, you were thinking Pale but itís not at all pale. Rather the contrary. The P could stand for Perfect: perfectly befitting a warm respite in front of a fire on a cold February night Ė but we donít say chit like that. Youíll probably just drink this Belgian Quad like a session beer and hope for the best in the morning anyway, so screw it. Maybe the P stands for your favorite Pub, the place where you go to hang out, drink killer beer and enjoy life. Yup, thatís the one. The Quad part, well itís a style for sure, but it could be in reference to a collaboration between a Pub and a Brewhouse that opened in the same year out of friendships and a love for great beer. Yeah, those four things are in here too.

Bomber from 5 Points. Poured a mostly clear ruby brown with a big off-white head. Aroma of dark fruit, belgian yeast, caramel, sweet candied sugar. Taste is similar, with plenty of spice, bready yeasty notes of dark fruit, and candy sweetness. Mouth is full and finish is dry. 11% is well disguised. Overall, a nice brew from SW.

Brown pour. Small tan head. Sweet aroma with booze, dried fruit, yeast and brown sugar. Flavor is a yeast and fruity bomb! Honey, dried fruit. Pretty good.

obguthr (4079) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Cask at Brewvival: Mild tobacco, wheat, and candied aroma. Clear garnet brown, medium yellow head. Slightly funked dark roasted malt flavor with subdued candi sugar. Brown sugar finish. Alcohol evident. Good taste, but not as exotic as I hoped.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Nice aroma of vanilla, belgian candy sugar, dark plums, figs and a hint of clove. Flavor is quite similar, with the candy sugar and vanilla upfront trailing into the dark fruits. Alcohol is hidden...decent mouthfeel. Quite warming for a cold winter night!

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2010
on cask at Brewvival. pours a deep, red with a thick, creamy vanilla head and sticky lacing. aroma was spot on for a quad from Georgia with notes of cedar wood, dry grass, toasted pine nuts, tart plums, raisins, belgian yeast, and hints of spice. flavor was very tasty as well with mildly tart fruity notes of red grape, plum, and berry with bready yeast, grass, and a nice, unique spicy, herbal note on the finish. palate is medium bodied with bright carbonation and a lingering, dry finish. overall, a very nice effort at a touch style from the sweetwater boys.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Not bad for a Georgia brewery. The similarities with a typical Belgian quad are there. The appearance is dark with a small head. The aroma is minimal. The flavor is very good, if mild. Dark fruits and sweet. Nice beer.

jrob21 (2672) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2010
A pretty solid offering here of a bit of a tricky style. Surprisingly this is not all hopped up Sweetwater style but keeps true to belgian roots in itís sticky, gooey, caramel goodness. Aroma of banana and spice. Flavor is spice again with a biscuit and chewy grain sort of backbone. Nice amount of sweetness and a little bit of heat as it warms on the finish. The alcohol is really well hidden by all those complex malts and grains. Pours a ruby red color with almost no head but enough carbonation exists to keep you interested.

22 oz. bottle from Greenís on Ponce De Leon. Dark brown appearance. Head is fluffy at first, but we will see how long it lasts. Head is lasting quite some time. Cola brown appearance; looks nice. Raisins and grapes are coming through this somewhat pungent aroma. Some Belgian yeast coming through as well. Fairly nuanced aroma, but the aroma is a bit weak. Rather thin mouth feel. Grapes, raisins, a touch of roast/smoke, and yeast are all hitting my taste buds. Rather sweet brew. It isnít bad, and for Sweetwater they actually did a decent job with this Belgian. I am sure if you were to cellar this it would get better with age. I have definitely had better Belgians, but for the crap that Sweetwater has been producing lately, this is decent.

Really nice offering from the DANK TANK of Sweetwater!Beautiful nose of banana and vanilla.Mouthfeel is ohhh so smooth with more banana and passion fruit on the palate.Alcohol is masked nicely.Not as good as some of the other DT series but a nice interpretation of the style..
