25.4 oz bottle. Deep chocolate brown, clear at the edges with a lacy topping. Nose is brown sugar, cola, raisin and cinnamon stick. Medium light with scratchy, slightly foamy carb; getting sticky. Taste is raisin, burnt sugar, carrot juice and nutmeg. Banana as it warms. Decent rendition of a tough style. drjay44 (3706) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2011
750 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, lasting beige head, with some lacing, over a clear reddish brown (SRM 20) body....nose is raisin, cherry, toffee/caramel, cola....taste is dried cherry, raisin, bit of allspice, finishing slightly astringent...mouth feel light, sticky, alcohol heat present, carbonation adds a pleasant spritz.This meets the style. It is not as rich as some, the alcohol is a bit too obvious, and complexity is on the light side. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Bottle shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff!
The beer appears a dark maple brown color with a thick, dense, light beige head. Excellent retention and ample lacing. Quads are just great looking beers.
The aroma brings dark fruits, particularly plums, figs, raisins. Yeast presence is there as well. The aroma is a bit weak for the style.
Sweet raisins with a hint of yeast. Lingering bitterness in the finish. Caramel malt and toffee.
Alcohol presence is very well disguised. A bit of warmth going down. Nice feel.
A good sipper. Not as complex as the Trappist examples of the style. Still, an enjoyable beer and worth a try.

Bottle brought back from a trip from Bruges. Rich ruby colour witha lasting frothy cream head. Peppery stewed fruit aroma. The flavour has lots of peppery spice with sweet stewed fruits, raisin, toffee and clove. Nice. DYCSoccer17 (3695) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 12, 2011
8 ounce sample on tap at Perfecto Lounge. The aroma on this is a little weird. Lightly tart and sour with some caramelly hints. I also detect some anise, and not much else. Not really what I’d expect from a quad. Transparent ruddy mahogany body with a small, off-white head and decent lacing. Starts tart and lightly astringent. Becomes a little sweet towards the middle. Some molasses character is in there. Finishes a bit boozy with some more astringency. Not a big fan of this beer at all. smith4498 (3646) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Pours cola brown with big light tan head. Aromas of dark fruits and bread dough. Sweet caramel malt flavor with some raisins, dough and candy sugar. Taste is good initially but ends with a weird aftertaste, kind of medicinal. Medium body with lively carbonation. nihtila (3634) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2015
