Growler shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt.
The beer is light orange with ample carbonation / effervescence. Atop the beer sits a quarter inch of white, fizzy head. The aroma brings sweet malt, fruity esters, alcohol. Sweet throughout. This is more of a Belgian strong ale than a quad, in my opinion. Decent flavor, but a bit hot and sweet for my liking. Eh..
4 oz pour on draft at Meridian Pint. Clear golden brown with off-white head. Aromas of caramel, cherries, malt. Tastes of caramel, toffee, biscuit, herbs, dark fruit, malt. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Drake (14036) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Keg at Magnolias. Pours a clear copper thin creamy tan decent retention. Toffee bread stone fruit booze. Stone fruit citrus green apple booze. Medium bodied low carbonation lingering booze. A mess. solidfunk (9205) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 24, 2014
At first this comes off like a quad but the finish is strange. Citrusy. Some florals but a little bit of a mess. Amber pour. Clash of ingredients. Tap. Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - DEC 6, 2014
from notes. growler sent from friend awesome pour quite fresh nice little brown head . good dark fruit notes on the nose and taste buds . not much heat coming thru in the taste. Great American quad worth the try Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: Draft at Leeburg Brewing Company. Hazy, reddish pour with a thin off white ring for a head. Sweet, macerated fruit in the nose. Very sweet with lots of raisin notes on the tongue. Lacks character and is a little one dimensional. Full bodied with a sweet finish.

Draught at The Lost Dog Cafe. This is a nice quad with lots of depth and sweetness. sitzds (318) - - NOV 7, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Taster poured into plastic cup. Hazy amber with a finger of frothy head. Hard to assess lacing or retention. Aromas are honey, warm banana, caramel, raisin, and dates. Taste is brown sugar, yeasty, sweetness then late mild bitterness. Moderate carbonation, more than I like for the style. Dry finish. Nickls (2554) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Tap. Every time I’ve had this, it’s just been OK. I really wanted this to somehow change, but oh well. Light murky brown orange. Bubblegum, toffee, dark grapes, and slight sweetness both for flavor and aromas. Bit thin, and a little slick. BazookaJoe (274) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 22, 2013
On draft, pours dark orange with a thin white head. Taste is extremely sweet, taste of raisins and caramel.

Pizzeria Paradiso, Georgetown tap ($6): Pours a mahogany color with a beige head. Aroma is dark fruit, dried fruit, a bit of Danzig, some booze, and yeast. Taste is predictable. Somewhat sweet, but not cloyingly. Alcohol is generally well covered. Doesn’t force sipping. Some degree of complexity, but isn’t really crafted to perfection. I was unimpressed for this did not go where eagles dare.
