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.

Pours a brownish/amber with very little off-white head. Aroma is sweet and consists of candied fruits, dark fruits, a little spice, yeast, raisins and alcohol. The aroma actually reminds me a little of Dogfish Headís Raison Dí Etre. Taste is what you would expect from the aroma but is not overly sweet and the alcohol is hidden well considering this is pushing 12%. Body is light to medium. I love hoppy beers, so this is definitely not my preference, but it isnít bad and makes for a decent sipping beer.

Bottle. Pours opaque, red-russet color with off-white head. Raisin and caramel aroma. Raisins and plums with candied sugar and alcohol burn in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

libertine (307) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2015
pours an orange amber with almost no head. Aroma is spicey with notes of cherry and a slight yeast funkiness. Flavor is very sweet with a decent amount of spice with slight notes of raisin and fig. Its just flat and lacks character. Medium body. Flat carbonation. Astringent finish. This is for the price just really disappointing. Buy yourself a Rochefort or an Abt12. The few bucks more are worth it.

From NOTES. A: Fruity malts and some grass and yeast with a little bit of bittering hops and a dose of alcohol. A: Pours a red slight orange and about a 1/4 inch of light tan head T: Follows the nose with dark fruits and a bit of hop presence and some yeast and farmyness for spice, but surprisingly missing some complexity. M: Medium body with very little carbonation and is very hot from the alcohol O: A decent quad that is good tasting but really does not stand out for the style.

Born on date of 11/18/2014, supposedly dead by date of 11/18/2019. This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a ruddy red to brown color with transparent hues running around the bottom. A slim quarter fingerís white foamy head dissipated immediately. No lacing was left. The smell started off with a sweet caramel malt running into Belgian spices of light ginger, cinnamon, and clove. Cherry based sugar lightly shows up. The taste was moderately sweet and drawing in the spices to accompany and balance. A Belgian sweet and semi-spicy aftertaste leads into a quick sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good sipping quality about it. Carbonated decently as a quad, spices tend to run along my tongue appropriately. Overall, Iíd say this was a pretty good quad. It hits everything its supposed to, Iíd have it again.

4 oz. draft at the brewery in Easton, PA; deep copper-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness, dark fruitiness (plums, raisins, apricots), candy sugar and light spices. Taste adds bread, toffee, some molasses and more dried fruits. Heavy body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy, rich with sweet fruity finish. Itís a heavy quad, fun to sip slowly.

ctipping (549) - Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2015
12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. Deep rich ruby body that froths almost over the rim of my St. Bernardus goblet. Whoah there. The head is impressive and reduces to a thin lace over the top of the beer that lasts throughout consumption. Bananas and booze. Some dark fruits, too, but totally banana dominated. I kinda like it, really. A bit of spiciness, too. The taste may not be complex, but itís so delicious. Again, the dark fruits are there with a banana flavor. Finishes with a dry spiciness that I donít altogether love, though. A good syrupy thickness that drops off to a dry finish. I donít really like that, itís uncharacteristic of the rest of the flavor. Low carbonation. Tasty up front with a disappointing finish.

Mep3222 (994) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Fig, raisin, dark fruit aroma with candy sugar. Taste is the same, full flavored but not sticky palate. Fairly balanced and has some great flavors, but low carbonation that dies fast. That low carbonation is the big detractor to the beer. Otherwise complex and flavorful and a nice quad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
