COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quasimodo is inspired by the best of Belgium, specifically the brothers of the cloth devoted to the brewing arts. A classic, full-bodied quadruple ale--for us, it is the measure of brewing perfection. Dark, savory and fruity, yet with a dry, bittersweet finish enhanced with traditional Belgian dark candy sugar, Quasimodo is dangerously drinkable. Re-fermented in the bottle and naturally carbonated, it can ring your bells now...or years from now.

A big ol’ Georgia sweet cake filled with all kinds of juicy dark fruits, candied cherries, chocolate, liqueur. Top notch.

Bomber. Pours dark brown with red highlights. Nice frothy tan head. Aroma of dark fruits and roasted nuts. Dark fruits, carmalized sugars, alcohol esters, and a faint roasted taste hits the palate. Very nice and balanced. Really enjoying this on this cold snow day.

ChainGangGuy (4489) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2014
750ml bottle - $8.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

Released in 2014.

Appearance: Pours a deep, dark mahogany-hued body with a smallish, foamy beige head that comes just shy of an inch and steadily fades to a wisp.

Smell: A sultry blend of high-grade sugars and fruity complexities over a firm, dark toastiness, with a dusting of finely ground spice and the ever-present alcohol.

Taste: Well toasted bread crust with a little smidgen nearing a roasty tone, but not quite. Heavy drizzle of dark syrup flecked with caramelized rock candy and housing robust fruity notes of gooey, chewy dates, plump raisins, sweet cherries and a singular drop of peach schnapps. Amidst all the complex sugars is a big pinch of spiciness, a bit earthy, a bit bitter. Encroaching, accumulating alcohol warmth additional helps to cut the sweetness (not that it was ever overly sweet). Closes out bittersweet with that alcohol trailing into the aftertaste and providing some much needed warmth on this lonely December night.

Mouthfeel: Near-full body. Medium carbonation. A little stickiness showing.

Overall: Intensely fruity while maintaining a fine balance between the rich sweetness and alcohol of the style.

drowland (6654) - Georgia, USA - NOV 5, 2014
11/5/14. 750mL bottle from Five Points. Another Georgia rating! Woo! Deep dark ruby brown pour under a one-finger, thick khaki head that fades to a ring with minimal lacing. Rich aroma, dark fruits, bitter, rich roasted toffee, reminds me of port in a way because of all the rich caramel aspects. Sweet, rich flavor hits first, malty, caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, lingering toasted toffee. Light carbonation pokes through the thick, syrupy body. This definitely leans towards the dark, rich, thick quads as opposed to the lighter, bubbly grapey quads. Not bad.

Travlr (15054) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Draft at the source. Cloudy brown color, tan head. Nice aroma of figgy pudding. Taste has raisins, toffee, brown bread. Delicious.

chinchill (2755) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2014
From a bomber bottle. Hazy brown body with a good tan head. Very fine and complex aroma with dark fruits, and some alcohol esters. High ABV a bit too obvoius. Otherwise tasty and seemingly Belgian.

aracauna (3196) - Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Mead like honey in the aroma. Followed by brown sugar malt in the flavor. Burnt bitter finish.

Dark brown with a red hue and beige head. Aroma contains some dark fruit, chocolate, licorice, and alcohol. Flavor is big and sweet with a strong licorice and chocolate flavor. Some booze and spices in the finish. Overall nice job locals.
