4.41/5 rDev +14.2%
750ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown
Poured a deep burgundy red / brown colour with a slight haze... Creamy tan head poured quite foamy but faded very quickly to thin covering with thick edging... fair amount of carbonation bubbles... light patchy lacing...
Aroma - Dark sweet and spicy fruits (raisins, prunes, some blackcurrents), strong toasted toffee maltiness, some molasses notes, yeasty, caramel, light aniseed hints, some light rum traces, vanilla, some nuttiness, peppery hops...
Taste - Spicy dark fruits (definite raisins and prunes, spicy apples, some figs and blackcurrents), brown sugar / toffee sweetness, milk chocolate, toasted malt loaf, strong Belgian yeastiness, light herbal notes, nice warming alcohol, liquorice hints, spicy hops...
Feel - Quite sharp and dry then some smoothness coming through after.. Medium / full bodied... Pretty drinkable considering the strength...
Overall - An excellent Quad and one of the best i've had... recommended...

3.13/5 rDev -18.9%
Welcome to DC, Sly Fox!
Served in a "Game of Thrones" glass.
A: Poured a dark, dark, brown with a slight bit of translucence, possibly only detected by some serious astronomical tools.
S: PEZ dust, with figs, plums, and various dark fruit. Somewhat understated, yet still present.
T: Kinda strong on the sugar and Belgian yeast front. Totally overwhelming. The fruit was there, along with a bucket of brown sugar.
M: Decent carbonation bill, but this stuff is boozy as hell. Seriously, It's hard to take a gulp of it.
O: This one was fairly cheap, at only $8.99. If you're looking for some cheap social lubricant, go ahead. However, I'll pass on this in the future.

2.51/5 rDev -35%
a: Clear dark chestnut; pours with a thick fizzy head.
s: Lots of cherries, some kind of artificial sweetner, and flowery booze. Not very Quad like.
t: Very sweet overall but not all that malty. Raisins and cherries are there but kind of syrupy. That artificial from the smell is here too. Lots of sugar but lacks any Belgian yeat character.
m: Gentle fizzy carbonation and a syrupy body.
o: Too sweet and pretty far off-style.
