COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BC002
THE BLACK QUAD: an homage to Belgian brewing tradition, with a slight departure. Characteristic of the style are notes of caramel, candi sugar, and dark fruit. Our addition of premium Belgian Black Malt adds a subtle component of dry roastiness for a deliciously dark complexity. 22°

Bottle from Bu11zeye. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of plummy dark fruit, anise, cognac, raisin, molasses raisin cookie, maybe chocolate. Med + body. Flavor is treacle, plum/raisin, chocolate. A little heat. Like barrel aged, tho it isn’t. What a treat. Finishes chocolate cognac.

On tap at Whip-In. Pours a very dark brown with a small beige head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is raisin and caramel malt. thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt and caramel. Hides alcohol well, a very good Quad from Real Ale.

The black malt makes this one, other than that a serviceable quad. Nice sweetness, very drinkable. Thanks Steve S.

"Another pleasant brew that was closer to the traditional style than I imagined. Dark fruit and light spice on the nose and palate, with a barely descernable hop presence. Finishes slightly dry, spicy, and a little sweet, showing barely any of the abv."

marcus (10156) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with an attractive tan head and a roasted treacle and raisin aroma. Smells like it is barrel aged but it isn’t. There is a carbonated chocolate and dark molasses flavor with a dry finish. Don’t know how old this bottle is, but it tastes aged. A nice sipper.

Deep heavy amberish brown with a thin light tan cap. Big aroma of plum and raisin and a boozy purple fruity tone. Nice full flavor with plum and fig, a little raisin, and a fruity boozy finish.
