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.

GSH1976 (307) - Delaware, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours a brownish/amber with very little off-white head. Aroma is sweet and consists of candied fruits, dark fruits, a little spice, yeast, raisins and alcohol. The aroma actually reminds me a little of Dogfish Heads Raison D Etre. Taste is what you would expect from the aroma but is not overly sweet and the alcohol is hidden well considering this is pushing 12%. Body is light to medium. I love hoppy beers, so this is definitely not my preference, but it isnt bad and makes for a decent sipping beer.

DocJitsu (1824) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Pours a murky bourbon with a short, antique white head. Subtle tartness on the nose with aromas banana, bubble gum, and very faint clove. Moderately aggressive on the palate. Bubble gum flavor triumphs. Moderately dry throughout, but becomes even drier at the finish.

Tap at brewery in easton with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. 12oz tulip pour. Really nice light plum color reminiscent of this style, small off white head. Dark fruit nose. Fruity plum taste with Belgian funk, very smooth. This is what this style is supposed to taste like. Excellent.

nearbeer (5083) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 1, 2016
12 oz. bottled 09/30/2015. Clear, deep copper with some spots of foam. Aroma is banana, walnut, bread, toffee and a touch of booze. Tastes of toffee, bread, lightly tart apple, clove, plum, cherry and wood. Medium-plus body is big and malty per the style, but has a nice drying finish that makes it pretty drinkable. Smooth low-medium carbonation is nice.
