COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Next up in the #hashtag series is ‪#‎quadfather‬ aged on Michigan tart cherries. Since introducing The Quadfather a few months back, this delectable Belgian Quadruple has quickly become a pub favorite. One particular cask treatment with cherries garnered rave reviews from our pub faithful so weve decided to bring it to you in bottle form. This particular cherry addition was designed to be a thoughtful and most importantly, complimentary addition to a beer already rich in dark fruit and caramel notes.

Bottle. Thanks! A: Mahogany body with a firm cappuccino head. Lacing. N: Cherry, toffee, toasted biscuit, hazelnut, red wine grape, raisin, clove, licorice, woodiness. A bit of smoke. T: Quite sweet but not cloying. M: Medium body, no alcohol, spritzy carbonation. O: Enjoyable. It is pretty soft and the cherry adds the kind of dimension I dont find in Three Philosophers. Good.

Bottle @ BVerys. Deep amber pour with a small head. Rich nose. Plenty of fruit leather. Rasin, trail mix, and some tart cherry skin. Mildly acidic. Flavor is similarly rich. Hot, sweet, with just a bit of tart fruit on the finish. Some tobacco and coffee, caramelized banana. Full and a bit oily.

Bottle from a trade with mdg164. Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of dark fruits and sour cherries. Fig, raisin, and plum flavors with some caramel and a hint of tart cherries. Full body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Marc.

Bottle shared by Dan. Pours a cloudy medium dark brown with an off white head. Aromas of roasted nuts. Strange, I know. A hint of cherry in there makes it remind me of a cherry tootsie pop. Taste is nutty and sweet. Booze is essentially hidden and the sweetness makes this one drinkable compared to the regular Quadfather. Really impressed.

This poured a medium brown with a small beige head. Aroma was of dark fruits, sour cherries, light booze, and yeasty spice character. Sour cherries balance out the big sweetness the regular version had. Overall a pretty nice big beer.

Bottle shared by Ryan, thanks! Pours a clear deep amber with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of dark fruits and dark grains with a bit of earthiness underlying. Flavor has earthy dark fruit with some raisin, toffee and a bit of Belgian yeast.
