4.75/5 rDev +10.5%
In my opinion outstanding quad.
Corked bottle 37,5 cl.
Low carbonation, a bit difficult to uncork for that reason.
Not too much head.
Nice and full malty-cognac, port wine (really nice) flavour.
Rich and sweet fruit aromas (figs, plums,grapes)
Better served at 12 - 18 degrees celsius like sugested by the brewers.
Since this quad was released in june 2013 i think it will get better with time.
Maybe a year after..
Founded in a really awesome shop in Amsterdam, Der bierkoning (a must if you go to that city) for 20 euros, good stuff cost a bit.

Review 300. 330ml bottle, poured into Kasteel
chalice. A: Dark amber, almost opaque, large,
thick tanned head, good lacing. S: Prune,
cranberry, molasses. T: Fudge, molasses, plumb,
long biscuity finish, brilliant hiding of the booze.
M: Outstanding, light body, smooth, well
carbonated, seemed to glide into the mouth. O:
Deserves a place at the table with the other
perceived top Quads. Might have lacked a tiny bit
of depth, but made up in other departments.

Batch 14. Pours no head (their regular quad pours a 5+ finger). Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium body. Oak and dark fruit nose and flavor is same, sweet malty dark fruit and oak. Why is the good stuff sooo expensive - $20.00 for a caged and corked 375ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #68 (Spetember 2012):
LOOK: Hazed tawny hue, towering head
SMELL: Toasty, heavy oak, hint of port, vanilla, peppery, white cherries, caramel, custard
TASTE: Super creamy, full bodied, boozy kick, very warming, big oakiness, brown sugar, peppery, toasted almonds, more oak, faint vanilla, hint of port, ripe plums, pomegranate, dry, oaky alcoholic finish
We are very lucky to acquire batch #3 of this project. Over 50 percent of the barrel-aged blend comes from port barrels, and the rest is aged on other variations of toasted oak. Being that we are fond of the traditional Quad, this is a real treat all around. With results like this, we hope this project does not see delay.

Deep maple brown. Lots of floating yeast. Weak head on the pour and absolutely no retention nor lacing to speak of.
Rich and sweet dark fruit aromas of figs and dates mixed with an underlying brown sugar sweetness. Red wine and sherry. Smooth oak. Big alcohol spice.
Sweet malt flavor overall, lots of ripe dark fruits and brown sugar with a hint of caramel. Just a touch of earthy hop. Oak character smooths out the palate and balances nicely. Finish is strangely clean.
Full bodied, drying in the end from the alcohol. Low carbonation. Slick texture mid-drink and sticky in the finish.
This beer was a nice choice to aged in oak. Adds a nice smoothness and seems to balance the flavors a little bit. Complex and tasty but I think I enjoyed the non-aged version just a little more.
