2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750 ml. Black with ruby highlights. Fizzy, off-white head. Aroma of plums, cotton candy, overripe fruits. The flavor is heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately to heavily sweet and lightly to moderate bitter. Medium body, watery texture turning syrupy, lively carbonation. Cloyingly sticky sweet. Overwhelms any good qualities the beer has. Nice aroma, though.
August 8, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel. 750ml corked and caged bottle I’d been keeping in my fridge for ... five years? More? Ruby pour, no head. Quad-like aroma; yeast, alcohol, tart fruit - light caramel (8-). Taste follows, a bit papery. Slick, syrupy/sticky, a bit still - finishes pretty quickly, sort of sweet and maybe musty aftertaste. johndoughty (5504) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2017

5th Feb 2016: De Bierboom, Brugge. 4th International Beer Swap. Shared 0.75 litre cork and caged bottle. Think sweet prunes and dates soaked in alcohol, then leave the concoction to ferment and age a while. Not too sure I actually liked the taste but I did find it interesting and I am glad to have tried another American Quad. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Big thick quad with a small hint of plumb and pitted fruit with a Belgian candy finish. katrinaez (2147) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Is missing the flavor toy would expect for a quad. Not awful, drinkable. If given a glass I would continue and take it. Don’t need to but it again though. Bottle PartyFowle (954) - - JUN 23, 2015
Pours a dark purple-brown with orange highlights and a tight tan head, which dissipates quickly with no lacing. Tons of champagne bubbles. Smells of sweet prunes and purple otter pops, with a slight alcohol burn in the nose. The flavor is interesting in that it doesn’t really hit until after you swallow. I get an explosion of yeasty thickness, prunes, dates, raisins, a heavy alcohol warmth, and some bready spiciness like a fruitcake. A great flavor, but it’s still a heavy beer and the alcohol isn’t completely hidden. Medium body, light carbonation. I couldn’t drink more than one bottle of this, but it’s still a decent sipping beer. Not my cup of tea, due to heavy sweetness and the assault of flavors after the swallow, but still good. Habanero (4773) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2015
Bottled. Pours deep brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of, molasses, caramel, yeast notes, overripe, dark fruit and a hint of hoppyness. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with a little bitterness. Medium bodied syrupy texture and soft carbonation. A nice Barley. 🌟🌟🌟
