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.

Lubiere (13681) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2004
Hazy hazy brown ale. Very sweet fruity aroma, wih sweet red delicious apple and alcohol warmth. Sweet and spicey taste with the hops comming nicely in the end. Almost in between a barley wine (grape notes) and a belgian triple/quad (spices). Nice grappa overtones. Well balanced.

Ungstrup (36911) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
A dark red beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol, peaches, and oil. The flavor is sweet spicy and with loads of hops as well as alcohol to give it a nice body. A nice beer.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Red and orange colour. Strongly alcoholic and vinous. Dry flavour and finish. Tastes like a barley wine. Quite strong hoppy notes.

OldGrowth (3463) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Bottle, good nose, rum, sour apple, cherry little bubble gum. Murky brownish orange, little to no head. Sweet and sour flavors. carmel, apple, prune. Mediumed body with a warming punch. Smooth and oily. Leaves kinda fruity dry. Pretty good, though slow drinking,

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Nice amber color with a slight head which leaves good lacing. However- the head fades fairly quickly and leaves a slight film of a head. Slightly murky and cloudy. Smell is of malt and of belgian candi sugar. Flavor is balanced and not too imposing. Some caramel, some sugar, and only a slight fruitiness as it warms. Mouthfeel is a bit light for such a strong beer, yet the alcohol isextremely well hidden. Thier blithering idiot has more of an alcohol bite than this. Very well done, but would have liked more body like three philosophers.

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2004
Dark amber colour with a moderate off white head. Sweetly alcoholic aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and a dark fruitiness. Flavour is exquisitely malty as it rolls gloriously over the tongue with notes of what I would guess to be candi sugar or something similar. Not superbly complex but no less delicious for it. I found the alcohol to be well hidden, though it did start to poke out more in the finish as it warmed up a bit. Bought this at Premier Gourmet back in January so it as least six months old. Damn, I wish I had bought more.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Pours a somewhat dull caramel brown color with a medium off-white head that dissipates down into a small rimming collection of bubbles. Aroma is caramel malt, moss and some bread. Flavor is malty, bready, dark fruit, maybe prunes. Body is medium with a very pleasant long finish.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Bottle pours caramel, small frothish off-white head, semi-sticky lacing, with virtually no carbonation. Sweet malts/grains, light perfume, and butterscotch on the nose. Forwardly estery, with a slight alcohol tinge. Slight pitted/dark fruit emerges as it warms. Very warming from the middle on through to the finish. The alcohol may detract too much from this one. Otherwise it is fairly decent. Decent body and mouthfeel, but lacks any real complexity and has too much emphasis on the alcohol. Would still consider having another, one with a bit more age. Thanks goes out to austinpowers for the trade!

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Cloudy murky deep orange amber color, very little head. Aroma of thick malts, toffee, raisins, and port. Full mouth with strong alcohol. Flavors of toffee, molasses, port and raisins to start, mimicking the aroma. As it warms, a chocolate note emerges, and in the end a pure caramel flavor comes through. The use of candy sugars is evident (I think), and the alcohol is just a touch too obtrusive, but it is a good beer overall.
