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.

jefcon (1325) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Smells like rum-soaked raisins. Could be more aroma on the yeast and malt. Kind of a pretty beer, with a reddish hue that glows in the bottom of the glass. An awfully lot of alcohol on the palate. Raisiny and a little sweet, like candy sugar, with streaks of herbal hop and a buttery, dense caramel/plum/raisin center. Raisin lingers on the palate.

HeadyDE (424) - Delaware, USA - APR 4, 2014
bottle pour at least a few years on it..pours a medium brown red color..slight head and carbonation..nose is dark fruit laden with cherry...molasses..brown sugar soaked raisin...faint spice notes in there as well..mouthfeel is amazingly medium bodied for being an almost 12% beast..taste is a match to the nose that is not boozy at first..but does have some warmth on linger..pretty tasty but seems to be missing some depth and complexity...alright

DrinkinWell (170) - - APR 4, 2014
Sample at the brewery. Pours brown with off-white head and decent lacing. Fall aromas--hay, brown sugar, sweet malts. Sweet malts, caramel, vanilla. Awesome.

tmoreau (2124) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Shared 12 oz. bottle, poured to snifters, and showing a clear, copper hue, with a modest layer of off white/light tan, bubbly head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was sweet, lightly spiced, cherry, and tartness. The body was medium+ with soft carbonation, and alcohol that was mellow but warming. Smooth on the palate, not overpowering, but harmonious subtlety to the flavor notes.

geologyguy (580) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Malty and slightly fruity...strong alcohol...not much else besides strong taste and malt

EvanFriend (265) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Very sweet, lots of brown sugar and Belgian yeast spiciness, maybe some ginger, and a hint of dried fruit. Not overly carbonated, but it seems to be almost "dancing", for lack of a better word, on the tongue. I can’t really describe the "dancing" mouthfeel, but I like it.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
ReggieDunlap (2924) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Pours an opaue amber/ruby with a thin tan head. Aroma has slightly boozy fruits...plum, prune, date. Flavor follows suit and adds earthy/leathery hops and light spice. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is dry, earthy/leathery, and spicy.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
DandyWolfFloyd (614) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Aroma - sweet dark fruited malt with spice Appearance - the body is deep caramel-colored, and with a tight white head about 3" high. It fades and is a halo after Taste - the beer tastes sweet, with dark fruit, spice, vanilla, and orange peel (perhaps curaçao) Palate - the body is more thin that medium. Texture slick. The carbonation average. The finish long and strong with that alcohol burn

stevoj (1701) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Decent quad,acking some of the body and wine like characteristics of the original. Fark and toasty with some alcohol warmth.

udfan07 (65) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Poured with a dark amber color. This beer has notes of cinnamon with maybe a hint of cherry. Can really taste the alcohol in it although not complaining about that

Ed5388 (1718) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Draft sample at Crossroads Spirits. Pours a hazy copper color with about a fingers worth of frothy beige head. Aromas of light dark fruits, candied sugar, turpentine, and lots of booze. Taste mimics the nose with lots of booze, caramel, candied sugar, and dark fruit.
