COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Massively big and delicious, QUAD is an elegant and dark ale. Rich with complexity and flavor, try savoring it after a long day or during a fine dinner. You also might enjoy it as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to a dessert, but QUAD stands alone quite well. We recommend enjoying QUAD in a brandy snifter or wineglass so you can drink in the aroma of this fine elixir.

This quad ale is strong! Dark in color, close to no head. You can taste some of that 12.1 ABV. Good for an after dinner snack. Overall a good strong belgian ale!

Big beer. Malty and thick. Almost syrupy in consistency and color. Very little head. Nicely balanced, in the mouth with a warming, not overbearing, alcohol finish. Makes a great, relaxing aperitif.

Just visited the Brewery today, very nice people. The brew pours deep brown/ruby color, little head at first but soon disapates. Smell is of fruit and alcohol. Tastes of fruit and coffee. The flavor is really hard to pin down. It is one BIG beer, that everyone should give a try. The finish leaves alittle bit to be desired but this may improve with age.

My overall favorite beer from this brewery...personally, I like it better than LaTrappes’s Quadrupel. Definitely improves with adequate aging (I have some 1.5 years old, but I live close and was there for its debut...what a spectacle!!) becoming less sweet and a little smoother (although it is fairly smooth already!)

Very malty. Very smooth. Tons of flavor. Lots of character in this beer. Deep amber in color. TRY THIS!

Woah baby - this is a big beer - drink with caution due to the high ABV!! Pours with very small head. Very deep amber/copper color - murky. Fantastic big and sweet nose of malt, carmel, honey and citrus. Thick and chewy palate. Huge flavors - sweet honey, winey malt, coupled with a touch of bitter hops. Almost to a point of being too sweet - but it still works for me. Again HUGE flavors - complex. Smooth finish although surprisingly short. Very nice!

The Quad is dangerous. Not quite as refined as Belgians tend to be, but somehow more accessible - I can’t really explain that, maybe it has to do with the complexity. Still, one of Weyerbacher’s best beers. Gotta have another... oh, wait, bad idea. Better go for something a little less strong!

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2002
Quite the BIG beer. Fresh & sweet alcohol aroma in the nose. Smooth, heavy, & rich, with an evident alcohol flavor that coats the mouth with a zingy, medicinal tingle. Has a fresh ’breadiness’ to it, coupled with a little hop twinge. Seems to ’collect’ in the back of the throat a little. Pretty burly in the flavor department... not necessarily what I’d call a spectacular flavor, but there’s a lot of it! Overall, pretty good stuff... and kept me interested.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 24, 2002
Re-Rate 05/25/02: A very deep garnet, a nice light chocolate head, fair lace. Alcohol, malt, bubble gum nose. Front sweet, the top light to medium, the finish is hops, 12.1 ABV, dry, acidic, and one ’Damn Fine Beer’

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2004 Very well done! Tastes like a combination of Westy 12 and Rochefort 10. Alcohol up front, but in a good, warming way; anyway this IS over 12%! Great thick mouthfeel too. Thanks VENOM, send me more!
