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.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
A dark red beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol, peaches, and oil. The flavor is sweet spicy and with loads of hops as well as alcohol to give it a nice body. A nice beer.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy chestnut colour with a tiny off-white head. Vinous port-like nose with lots of alcohol. Notes of dates and overripe fruit, but in general it’s not an overly complex beer. 011005

madmitch76 (14496) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2009
4th May 2008. Smooth and very sweet ale with that Belgian bubblegumness that is really something else not bubblegum. Offset by an underlying bitterness. Very drinkable.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2007
Beautiful amber color; very thin head. The aroma is malty, not too strong; a bit alcoholic too, maybe there is even a trace of phenol; and, as it happens sometimes in strong beers, they can show a vegetables aroma. Full mouthfeel, well balanced, as there is still some sweetness and the necessary bitterness; maybe the alcohol is too much; some malt flavor and traces of caramel; beware: wait some time and your patience will be rewarded with some better malt flavor, even with sweet hazelnuts coming from the residual yeast (this one being particularly interesting). The final (you may suspect it, some malt and nutty bitterness) is long. They have good hops that can work well with the high amount of sugars, and it has been brewed with usual skills; but this beer is lacking a bit in complexity. Very good.

yngwie (13209) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2008
Bottle. A clear, copper-colored body topped by a minimal-sized off-white head. Sweet on the nose, very malty, with lots of dried fruits. Sweet and malty flavor too, with a very evident alcohol flavor, dried fruits and some caramel. Full-bodied, sweetish and warming in the mouth. The finish is long, with dried fruits, sugar, caramel and alcohol. It’s sure a lovely beer, but the alcohol is a bit too evident. On a cold evening that can of course be nice, but I would like it a bit toned down. (080301)

Slightly hazy amber color, small off-white head. Sweet, berryish strawberry aroma. Medium to full-bodied. Quite sweet. Caramel, strawberries, Belgian yeast and kandi sugar. Nice Belgian-style dessert.
