COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Massively big and delicious, QUAD is an elegant and dark ale. Rich with complexity and flavor, try savoring it after a long day or during a fine dinner. You also might enjoy it as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to a dessert, but QUAD stands alone quite well. We recommend enjoying QUAD in a brandy snifter or wineglass so you can drink in the aroma of this fine elixir.

Pour is a muddy river water with a small white head. Aroma is a big dark fruit with a lot of raison and figs with some bron sugar and alcohol. Flavor is at first a huge sweetness. There is a ton of dark candi sugar here. Next I get a sugar covered plum with a healthy warming alcohol. This is way sweet but I do like the dark fruit that this beer has. Not a bad 12 oz bottle quad. Probably just needs more time to sit and let the sweetness subside.

migwell (283) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 5, 2016
A very pleasant quad, if a little too thin bodied. Bottle into a snifter, served a bit too cold out of the refrigerator, but I have the time to warm it up. Reddish brown color that is somewhat transparent, with a thin, quickly disappearing head. Aroma of alcohol and yeast, dark fruit and sugar and the flavor follows the aroma pretty well. Dark fruits and sweetness predominate with a pronounced malty roundness and alcohol heat. Just at a guess, and due to the high ABV, I would say that this brew has an overload of sugar overpowering the malts, and it has a negligible hop presence, standard for the style. Im certainly enjoying the one I bought, but would probably find two a bit cloying.

Evolutionary (481) - Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle from andersons east side. Nose is sweet but has a bite. Smooth upfront. Has quite a bite to it especially at first. Dark malts shine through. Aggressive but kills the taste buds early on. A man's beer and heavy.

Bottle. Pours brown with notes of red, hazy, almost no head. Aroma of cherry, plums, caramel, oak, yeast, hint of peach and spices. Taste of dark dried fruits, caramel, chocolate, raisins, brown sugar, cloves, yeast. Quite boozy even for a quad.
