4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep red color with a small off white head. The nose is full of dried fruit, particularly dates, raisins, and figs. Sweet and boozy on the tongue the dried fruit really takes hold with leather, vanilla, and tobacco notes joining in. Syrupy mouthfeel with a lingering finish. Sweet, but tasty.

Thank you jesterdeal! Pours brown with an off white head. Aroma is spicy oak, caramel, and brown sugar. Taste is big oak and brown sugar and sweet caramel that doesn’t leave that strong bite in the end. Very smooth and enjoyable. great stuff.

Raisin, plum, sweet, syrupy. I actually think this might be a bit better than the real belgian quads.

Bottle shared with my friend Tony. Pours a reddish cloudy brown without much head. Aroma of bread and bourbon sweetness. Not a ton of heat but just a slight bite.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Taste is of vanilla and bourbon underlining all the usual taste of a quad. Getting dark fruit and quite a lot of caramel as well. The alcohol does come through quite a lot but the sweetness tries its best to counter balance.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange, smells of vanilla and banana clove. Smooth on the palate, this beer masks the alcohol well for 11%. Overall this is a very good Quad, better than many other offerings. Recommended.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with a thin white head.
Tastes- The bourbon flavor was a bit over powering. But once the alcohol flavor faded a bit there is some brown sugar/vanilla sweetness that saves the beer from being to boozy.
MF-Very boozy beer with little to no carbonation.
Overall-Better than most beer with such a high ABV. The sweetness manages to prevent it from being too overwhelming but I will probably stick to Tripels and Dubbels in the future.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. It pours a dark reddish color (nice when held up to the light) with a thin head of khaki foam. The aroma is really nice with big notes of plum, raisin, cinnamon, vanilla, wood and bourbon. Very inviting. The flavor is very sweet with sugar, plums, alcohol, caramel, wood and a lot of vanilla in the finish. Warming and fruity with some cinnamon, but a bit too sweet in the finish for my tastes. Kind of like a sugary, fruity soft drink with a shot of bourbon.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark amber/orange pour with a thin tan head that quickly disappeared leaving just a hint of foam around the edge of liquid. Aroma of apricots, alcohol, yeast. Warming alcohol taste. Apricots, vanilla, cough syrup, butterscotch flavors. Full body, creamy, sticky texture. Carbonation is soft. Finish is long...mostly alcohol with apricots and cough syrup. This is almost brandy-like. Very good. Continue to be impressed with Weyerbach offerings.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured on the warm side too long out of the fridge with a smallish, somewhat fizzy, tan head and no lace. Color is a clear orange amber brown with no bubble trails. Aroma is malt, sherry, dark ripe fruit, with a little oak and vanilla. Flavor’s much like nose with sweet front and center, tapered with some bitter and a tiny bit of tang. Body is good, full and round, true to style, but carbonation is a little soft. Finish is like flavor, lingering, and has no off characteristics although the alcohol give only the barest hint of the power. Good beer, but a little does go for a distance.
