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.

Super brown, reddish translucency. Boozy nose with cherry. The taste has an alcohol singe slight prickly carb, sweet syrup and more cherry. Definite alcohol sweet. Maybe not the best quad that Iíve sampled, but certainly solid and Iím stoked I got a four pack.

Draft at the stone street tavern on stone street . Deep brown color with a sweet boozy flavor. Taste is kind of overpowering. It's a sipper

Cybercat (3516) - Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Pours a beautiful clear rosy mahogany with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled light tan head. Aroma has a strong caramel note with brandy and clove tones backing it up. Bold flavor charges caramel, nutty, fruity (apple, grape, a little cherry), cloves, and subtle roast malt notes across the palate, a veritable stampede of flavor. Texture is firm and smooth, yet has some good fizz to it, leaving a caramel and brandy finish. This beer is one to sip and savor - and experience.

Yeasty....little boozy, but very good quad. Will cellar a few, I think if allowed to sit for a year or so it would be amazing.

Wow! Pours a solid amber. Thin head fades and dies quickly. Super sweet first taste. There is a sweet fruit, nearly cherry up front. Thick, but not syrupy. Maybe some orange at the tail end. Super complex and quite a trip to sort through. Bravo.

"Dug this 12% brew. Not overly alcoholic. Deep aroma of brown sugar, dark fruit and hints at spice. Similar flavor with a dry yeasty finish. Nice brew."

Not much from the aroma, actually itís a bit weak. Sweet malt, dark fruits, caramel . Very tasty. Medium to light mouthfeel light carbonation. I would buy this again.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. Pours a ruddy amber color with a thin off white head. Nice dark fruit notes, particularly cherry. Some caramel and sweetness. The combination of sweetness, booze, and cherry reminds me a bit of cherry cough syrup, but itís not entirely unappealing. Viscous body with a warming finish. Not bad.

Transfer from BA review on 1-30-13- Served on tap in a chalice glass Appearance Ė Served a mahogany colored brew with ruby highlights shining through. The head was small upon the serving with it fading relatively quickly to leave only a light level of lacing. Smell- The aroma is fruity and sweet with hints of a boozy aroma mixed within. Stone fruits comprise the bulk of the aroma, but are mixed with other smells of apple and pear. Some notes of caramel and brown sugar accompany the fruit as well as aromas of alcohol giving a warmingly sweet smell. Taste Ė The taste begins with a fruit flavor that was detected in the nose. Cherry, plum, apple and pear are all present. These aromas are soon met with a Belgian yeast flavor accompanied as well by some notes of caramel and banana sweetness. Soon after this some boozy and spice flavors (mainly nutmeg and clove) work their way into the taste. While they start out more on the mild side they get quite strong by the end, where a boozy warming fruit spiced sweetness is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the brew is rather thick and creamy with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. A rather nice feel for all the dark fruit and boozy tastes of the brew accentuating the warming and spiced nature of the beer. Overall Ė A sweet and tasty Belgian quad. Very much worth a try if you get the chance.
