clear reddisd dark amber colour, medium sized creamy yellowish-bright beige-ish head, which lasts for several minutes leaving back a beautiful cream layer; aroma of slightly burnt caramel, dried apricot, some plum jam, dried berries and hints of coconut; taste is the same without coconut and with yeasty and herbal notes; spicy alcoholic aftertaste; enjoyable quadrupel, but obviously very far from the top ones alteregoo (1739) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAY 20, 2017
Piana spora, dość trwała. Barwa bursztynowa, klarowna. W aromacie głównie świeże brzoskwinie, skórka pomarańczy, kandyzowane morele, syrop klonowy i troszkę przypraw. Po ogrzaniu dochodzi miód i rodzynki. W smaku dość słodkie, syropowe, likierowe, spór o prym wiodą estry i fenole od belgijskich drożdży - brzoskwinie, jasne winogrona, dojrzałe mandarynki, pikantne przyprawy, dość solidna, ziołowo migdałowa goryczka, dodatkowo podbita mocno grzejącym alkoholem. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, drobne, pełne w odbiorze.martjoobolut (5118) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 17, 2017
Zdecydowanie nie jest to Quadrupel w trappistowakim rozumieniu - jasny, triplowy, z nie ułożonym alkoholem. Ot taka ciekawostka zza wielkiej wody - poziom egzotyki w typie Paris of the West od Almanac.
Bottle (from beergium). Pours amber with beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, fruits, some carrots. Flavor is sweet and bitter, sugar, fruits, citrus, malt, vegetables. Finish is sugary and citric bitter. Overall: ok. kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - OCT 11, 2016
I’m not rating to style, but to taste. Beer is medium amber and not the typical dark brown. Very sweet although the spice ratio from the yeast offers a good counterbalance. A nice sipper. dwyerpg (6410) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Color is way too light. This is sweet and tastes like a quad but not a particularly good one. Disappointing.

Very good to great quad. Reddish brownish pour pretty clear. Candi like aroma with some caramel and toffee. Some banana but very slight. Flavor had dark fruits of plum and raisins with the candi sugar adding compkxity. gam (4078) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2015

Aromas of tropical fruits, orange, pineapple,coconut juice, papaya, tangerine, ripe apricot, coconut, burnt sugar, burnt caramel, tart apple juice and tangy, ester-like yeast. Appears a clouded golden copper with assertive lacing. Taste is big candied caramel, sweet sugar, sugared tropical fruits, prunes, apricots,coconut juice tangerine, pineapple, guava juice, orange peel and papaya. More subtle notes of chewy malt syrup, more caramel, turbinado sugar, biscuit malt and ester-like yeast. Overall, very interesting beer with a lot of fruity flavors. A tad overly sweet for me but still a great brew. A rating. GarrettB (1657) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2016 February 9th, 2014 - Smell is very sweet. Lots of honey, roasted apple, bubble gum and graham cracker. Taste is also very very sweet. Like, really sweet. Too sweet. Palate is normal, kind of bubbly on the back end. Aftertaste is all the sticky sweetness. Lots of the caramel and graham cracker, and a slight hoppiness, but that yeast is really pushing the sugars.
July 24th, 2013 - Black Market Brewing’s Quadao-Phenia is a sledgehammer to the nose, blasting the olfactory with aromas that boldly reek of balsamic vinegar and fig, followed by parmesan cheese and marinated cepollini onions, and a touch of grape sweetness, all swimming around in a heady bouquet. The scent is practically a drug, layering umami after umami into a wonderful lattice of savory-sweet bliss. The flavor is the same, but where the nose was acceptably titanic, the flavor is awkwardly monstrous. It resembles balsamic vinegar here too, though is swirled with dark chocolate and topped with tons of fig. The combination exudes a taste like barbecue, and the vinegar brightness of those marinated cepollinis. Even in its excessive strength I like it, finding myself restrained and giving plenty of of time between oil, slick sips. This is a heavyweight brew, but if you’re a fan of powerful flavors and steel-toed aggressiveness in your brews, give this a go. 9/3/7/4/15 3.8
