Brown bread, wine, raisins, dark fruit, and molasses in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and bready, with apple, raisin, and caramel. Some fruit bitterness, spice, and alcohol in a dry finish. This is a great representation of a great beer style. If you’re in the mood to treat yourself, this is a fine choice. Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle at the Quadfest. Aroma of chocolate and molasses. Pours dark brown with good clarity and a small film of white head.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Clear dark amber with a medium persistent beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of raisins, candi sugar, hints of sweetness, molasses, dark fruits, some oxydation notes, spices and some Belgiumness. Taste is moderately sweet with raisins, spices, malt, candi sugar, molasses, dark fruits and just the right amount of alcohol warming in the finish. Full bodied. Good carbonation. Chewy mouthfeel. Spciy finish. Wow! This is a very good Quad. Taste, complex and great balance. Well done AleSmith!
