on tap at Atomic coffee poured a brown gold with a thin head that disappears quickly . the smell is spicy and it kinda smells like a sour? The taste doesnt strick me as a Quad, but more of a sour spicied brown ale. Its not bad, its just not what I expected. The taste is tart up front but very creamy on the finish. The spicies shine through the entire way. Decent beer, just not what I expected it to taste like.

My cellar note says I was supposed to open this last month, I dont know why. 2015 vintage, crystal clear amber beer, decent cream colored head dissapeared. Aroma is cherry, malt, caramel, plums, toast, smoke. Taste is cherries, oak, malt, cherry lifesavers, hint of ginger (or something spicy), whiskey. Palate is smooth and rich, carbonation moderate. This is a bit sweet, but nicely complex.

The Stoic captures a lot of Belgian character while remaining true to Deschutes tendency to experiment. It has a brown/dark amber color. Malt sugar, bread, light booze, and herbal hops on the nose. Tasting revealed molasses, dark fruit, vinous character, subtle chocolate, and juicy citrus. It certainly draws heavily from the Belgian styling, but the fresh fruit gives it something unique. Mouthfeel is characteristically full and soft. A superb Quad.

Oakes (17132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2017
On tap at the John B Pub. Inexplicably poured into a frozen shaker. Wow. Cloudy, thin head. Theres some barrel, nice fruitiness, touch of alcohol and a fair bit of brandy-accented malt sweetness. Rich sweetness, brandy barrel a bit but mostly estery, fruity and really sweet. Touch of alcohol, and a hit of phenol that The brewery might have preferred aged out in the wood. Ultimately a somewhat messy strong brew that doesnt have anything to latch onto. Cant lie though - I need to try this again, served properly.

On tap at the John B Pub in Coquitlam. I love quads but this is an unusual take on the style, namely the addition of cranberry. Im enjoying it but this is a 12 oz which will be more than sufficient. Anyway plenty rich decadent fruits on offer and enjoying it very much. 3.6

Its a decent quad, but no way worth the 40 buck price tag even for a bomber. Flavors good, bodys a touch thin for a quad.

22 oz bottle in Trappist goblet. 2015 edition. Very different for a quad. 16.5% aged in wine barrels. 16.5% in oak rye whisky barrels and brewed with pomegranate. Quite fruity and fairly sweet. Does have a bit of alcohol burn. Not much head but fabulous aroma. Very complicated.

650ml bottle @ home. 2015 Vintage.
Pours a semi-opaque reddish brown colour with a decent off-white head. Nose is caramel, fruity, some sourness Im assuming from the barrels. Flavour is definitely fruity, it almost comes off as a sour dark cherry, but guessing its white wine and pomegranate. Medium bodied overall.

Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a snifter. Hazy orange with small white head. Aroma is light candy sugar, medium body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is complex candy sugar and oak.

Lovely quad! Almost smells like a sour but its far from it! Fruity flavors & belgian spice happily meet to create a very good beer! Love the flavor explosion! Delicious!
