Purchased at the LCBO for a steep $4.60 for a 330ml bottle. Served at 8deg C in a tulip.

A- 4.25- Opens well and pours a ton of head that is gone in 1min. VERY dark.

S- 4.0- Roasted malt and some nuts. Caramel. Traditional quad

T- 3.75- Pretty good but not a Roch10 or anything. Priced above the 10 too! LOL

M- 3.75- Lots of carbonation. Sickly sweet and heavy

O- 3.80- Not the greatest beer especially at this price point

Food Pairing

This pretty good quad went well with...... Brazed beef short rib with root vegetables and potato

Enjoy!
