   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
chris__hartley (449) - Ontario, - JAN 31, 2013
It pours dark mahogany with ruby highlights; the head is bone and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: cardamom, cloves, yeast funk, hay, figs, and alcohol. The taste is dry that finishes light bitter; there are notes of: cloves, figs, a tiny bit of burnt coffee, and lots of alcohol. The palate is full bodied, slick, medium carbonation, and a long finish. Overall, when this is young it’s very closed - definitely needs a couple of years to perk up.

Mindwarp (294) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2017
Pours Black with the big tan head. The aroma is of dark fruit and the flavor is more of a spice taste. Cloves? Overall a pretty good quad not my favorite though.

coachd (932) - Missouri, USA - OCT 13, 2017
Spicy aroma that also contains dark malt, some plum/fig and booze. Dark brown color with a tan head. Very pleasant to drink, well balanced and slightly sweet on the aftertaste. Just a tinge of booze heat but in this instance it serves to balance things out. A bit light on the palate. I would never have believed that this beer is 10.5% ABV. Quads are not usually my thing but Unibroue knocked it out of the park with this one.

PhillyCraft (7919) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2017
Backlog, bottle. Pours a dark brownish black with a medium beige head. Notes of fig, roasted malts, belgian fruit, cocoa, coffee roast, misc nuts, and random spice Medium to heavier body with a long, warming, close.

I wanted to finish my 150th with a great beer. I got this one as a trade with a friend, bullseye.

partchapol (143) - Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Smell of yeast, caramel, date, roasted malt. Come in black dark brown with thin cream crown. Taste of balanced sour yeast and sweet bitter malt, with some raisins. Close to Belgium quadruple beer but with less spice for commoners like us. Could experiment more on that. Overall it’s very good beer.

3.4
ryecatcher (1466) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2017
750mL. I’m not gonna bore you with the same details everyone else already posted on this. I will say that given expectations (and given that I generally like the brewer) this one was a bit of a letdown. So many better Quads. Who knows. Maybe it’s an old bottle. Oh and... fuck the Penguins.
