Glimmering amber with a very small and thinly placed cap of quick to fade yellow dusted, off-white creamy foam. Very minimal lacing if any decides to stick.

Aroma is quite average and understated with a mellow candied malt profile with a hint of rootbeer barrel candy , flowers, and a stint of plastic phenols.

Taste is a bit plain and noncomplexing. There's not much to it. Flavors are of dark candied molasses and over ripe mellons. Bits of dark cherry cola, cooked brown sugar, and dark wheat. Warmth of alcohol shows up very late in the back of the throat with a small left over caramel swirl and wheat tang.

Feel is lively in the front with a brazen warmth and beefy carbonation that slips away a bit too quickly. Maintains a nice malty smoothness and lightly bold creamy tone from the middle on.
Finishes with dark candy and a warming alcoholic back breath.

Drinks fine and easy enough, but its lack luster to say the least and is missing the complexity a Quad should have. My $6 could have been better spent.

Price: $6.00 Served In: Goblet

Not your child’s favorite priest. Poured a somewhat cloudy burnt orange color that flinted with red and yellows when held to the light. A good pour with ample foam, limited retention and lacing throughout the tasting.

The aroma is sweet but noticeable phenols and fusel alcohol notes. A slight Belgium kick that isn’t too noticeable. Some mango and cherries are really noticed as well as Belgium candi. There is a light white wine character on the back end as well. A bit hard to get past the alcohol notes.

The taste is big but strong in the fusels and alcohol department. The malt is somewhat hidden by the alcohol notes but some grainy and winey notes. A light sugary note with more of a syrupy like flavor going on. Noticeable phenols, plums and sugar beats. Some minor cherries. There is a noticeable bit at the end that blends funny with the phenol hot taste to it.

The body is big. A bit of a syrupy texture. Sure it’s a quad, but its is way to hot. Even with age, I wonder how this will blend in.
