stevoj (2728) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Excellent stuff. Warm and boozy, slick and slippery. This one is all over the board in aroma and taste; pit fruit, licorice, molasses..... The ABV will do you in however, part of the appeal. An excellent to a session.

Had in a sniffer poured from 750ml bottle. Pours pitch black beer with a thick brown head. Flavor is very chocolatey, ALCOHOL, but with a sweet kick. Amazing taste with a warming sensation, carful this one take you to another planet.

Bebum (450) - - APR 1, 2015
Opaque, little lace. Very full body, dense flavor, smooth and rich mouthfeel, hot, long palate, tasty finish. Sweet but balanced by bitter background. Roast flavors, coffee, vanilla essence. Wonderful, could pass as a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheSilentSaint (98) - Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Pours black with brown head. Smells caramel, syrup and coffee malts. Feels rich creamy with decent carbonation in mouth. Tastes dark chocolate, coffee, light roasts, syrup. High alcohol content leaves it's after taste behind. A good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

c_lee_burton (181) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2015
750 ml bottle. Pours black with a beautiful dark tan head. You get coffee, sweet malt, star anise, and hint of chocolate on the nose. Tastes of chocolate, roasted malts, raisins, plums, hops, and a little coffee and some sweet citrus. Nice and complex with a medium body. It looks and smells like a stout, but drinks like a porter. Excellent brew. Definitely best I’ve had from Uinta.

Sweet, chocolate, dark caramel, dark fruit malty aroma. Malty flavor: Sweet, coffee, black licorice, dark caramel, raisin. Nice character from the barrel; prominent, but not too much. Some pepper spiciness. Drier finish. Nice creamy mouthfeel.

Any description of this beer would come painfully short of the overall quality of this Quad Black Ale. Just go get one, and see exactly why it’s loved by many.

radarsock (1112) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Purchased earlier today from Cigarette City. $10.99 for the 750 mL bottle. To short-stemmed white wine glass, it pours a mahogany-tinted taupe with which a webby Tuscan beige head 1½ fingers in length stood. Aromas of young-matured port wine, black currant purée, wild black cherries, burnt spelt pie crusts, grill char, 70% dark chocolate, wood pulp, candied walnuts, black licorice candies, vanilla beans, bourbon oak, pipe tobacco, and London ale yeast. Tastes the same with the addition of dried lavender, white sage/herbal hops, damp newspaper, and roasted soy beans. Abrasive, but in a fittingly good way. At 13.2% abv, you’d think this would be your last beer, but the content is hidden so ridiculously well, that I could probably sip one other bottle of this before genuinely feeling its effects. Full-bodied, but you could’ve guessed that.
