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.

GSH1976 (266) - Delaware, USA - FEB 26, 2013
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.

DCLawyer (2313) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2016
4oz draft at Spacebar. Clear amber with small frothy lite tan head. Predictable quad characteristics, with dark fruit, slight booze, caramel, candied sugar, yeast. OK, but just.

4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Clear brownish amber with beige head. Aromas of dark fruit, caramel, syrup. Tastes of dark fruit, caramel, medicinal cherry syrup, spices. Medium body with a dry finish. Alcohol is well masked but this is very rich and sweet.

terefere (322) - Durham, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle. Pours brown with notes of red, hazy, almost no head. Aroma of cherry, plums, caramel, oak, yeast, hint of peach and spices. Taste of dark dried fruits, caramel, chocolate, raisins, brown sugar, cloves, yeast. Quite boozy even for a quad.

demannu (281) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Deep amber Chile with a short lived fizzy of white head. Malty aroma with dark fruit present. Flavor is sweet dark fruits with a less then expected boozy finish for the abv. Body is full and slightly tacky, leaves a coating in mouth.

dlovell2 (1470) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Pours a beautiful mahagony color with tan head. Aroma is rich malt, dark dried fruits, booziness, and Belgium yeast, cloves. Flavor is rich caramel malt, dark dried fruits, raisins, plums, candied sugar, a little bit of cherry. Finishes with dark fruits, sugar, alcohol vapors, and Belgium yeast. Didnít go into this beer with high expections but this brew really blew me away. Really great for a quad made in the US. This beer is so under rated.

Sirmixsomewhat (169) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2016
The beauty in this beer is both in its color (it pours a lovely shade of reddish brown) and in its smooth finish. The label says itís brewed with raisins, and you can smell and taste the presence of raisins throughout. Itís a strong beer. Itís got just the faintest bitterness to it in its aftertaste, but itís very smooth overall.

Aroma: Light and not overpowering. Light bananas and malt Appearance: Deep amber in color Taste: I think of creamy bananas Palate: creamy and smooth Overall: Weyerbacher Quad is one of my favorite finds so far. Very smooth and creamy, its big ABV will slip up on you because it is so easy to drink.

superspak (3968) - Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2015
12 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 11/6/2015. Pours crystal clear deep ruby red/copper color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, prune, fig, cherry, date, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and compelxity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, prune, fig, cherry, date, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy/peppery yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, prune, fig, cherry, date, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast spiciness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready and slightly slick mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an excellent quadrupel style! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

obxdude10 (2175) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Not a bad quad, but I found it to be a bit too sweet and malty for my liking. The complex body and flavors were certainly there, but perhaps too much sugar or some other sweet ingredient(s). The beer pours a cloudy and murky brown color with a small light brown head. There isnít much lacing left around the glass. The nose is full of sweet notes like caramel, toffee, rye and yeast. The flavors are strong and full-bodied, with more caramel and toffee, along with a hint of light and prickly hops, alcohol, banana, clove and pepper.
