O: overall I thought about rating this beer lower but after contemplating on the style, it's not bad, a well-aged quad

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.

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.

Pours from the 25.4oz bottle a cola-ish brown with a 2 finger head. I cant see much in the way of carbonation in the darkness. Aroma is surprisingly faint ( or is it my allergies?) but I catch a hint of bread & dark fruit. 1st sip is of dark cherries, plums, and a hint of caramel. It's quite sweet & malty even after 2 months of aging. Mouthfeel is a bit prickly, but there is not as much carbonation as one would expect. Overall, this is a pretty solid quadrupel, a quite suitable offering on National Beer Day!

It came down to this or Incubus, Chose Ichor strictly based on the style of the beer. I enjoy Quad's quite a bit so I wanted to give this one a shot. The beer poured out as a traditional brown color with a cream colored head on top. The retention wasn't too bad here but there wasn't any lacing at all. The smell of the beer was bready and fruity, there were also some aromas of caramel in there too. The taste of the beer has a sweet start to it that gives off flavors that coinside with the nose of the beer. The finishing flavors remind me of bubblegum. The mouthfeel is well carbonated and gives the beer is a decent dry finish. Overall it's not a terrible Quad and I'm thankful for that. It is probably one of the better Slyfox beers on the market.
