4.15/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Clear light brown colored ale with a small yellowish tan colored head.

Smells malty and strongly of raisin and fig. Strong brown sugar and fruit this has a bit of fruitcake aroma to it. Spicy ethanol caries a pepper scent. Slight grape but a stronger brandy aroma.

Starts out neutral and woody with a brown sugar after taste. Fruity and on the sweet side has a distinct earthy flavor. Tasty with lots flavor, fig shows up after awhile. Could be a little more complex but it nails the style perfectly.

Mouthfeel is full.

Overall very tasty! Very much a sipper and quite good. Not the best Quad but I would never refuse a glass of this.

3.94/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: loose foam from start to finish....reddish-brown, relatively clear till a few yeasts slipped in....

S: clean ,vodka-like booze... some light, raisin-y fruit.... mellow yet full floral nuance... overall, nice but somewhat subdued

T: super-smooth, velvety-flowery, cookie-ish malt.... brown sugar, granola, background raisin.... superbly mellow and balanced - flavors don't explode, but excellent, nonetheless

M: ethanol-attenuated medium-light body.... subtle, spongy foam wash with each sip... easy-drinking - airy and light around a compact, satiny flow.... fairly restrained swell of boozy warmth midway through each sip

O: one that doesn't bombard the senses with flavor.... gotta let it sit for awhile for it to open up.... even then, dry and quite mellow... nice, if you're digging the subtleties and simply want to quell the swelling in your brain

4.49/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a caramel red color.
Figs, rasins and grapes are on the nose. Slight nutty and grassy smells are detectable too.
Taste is smooth but complex as you would expect from a quad. Raisin is the most detectable taste but apple (for some reason) and molasses are present too. Finishes somewhat sticky with a bready aftertaste.
Not the best quad I've had but very respectable.
