Cascara Quad pours a reddish color with a small but lacing head. There is a sweet boozy aroma, with a dark tart cherry note. The taste has a nice boozy sharp malty backbone, with good hints of tart cherries, then the coffee flavors finish. Good body, coffee flavors don't mix very well, so funky aftertaste. Overall its funky, but enjoyable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Medium amber with a thin brownish head, splotchy lacing. Very light in color for a quad, resembles a dubbel more.

Smell: Dark fruits with a good amount of cherry, dates and raisin. Some malty sweetness, but no apparent roast or coffee.

Taste: Dark cherry at the forefront, not tart as I would've hoped for, and I get absolutely no coffee. Tastes reminiscent of cherry cough syrup...

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation and a slight alcohol burn. Getting through a whole bottle of this would be a chore.

Overall: Glad this is out of my fridge and I can't say that I'm a fan. Maybe it was a bad bottle, but I got none of the coffee and very little traditional Belgian quadrupel flavors...Unfortunately much of this bottle was a drainpour

This may be a hint off in color, but with all that's been added I'm not surprised. I can't knock it much for that. Plenty of malty, high abv. It's a quad alright.

Cherry with a hint of date: kind of fig-y. The coffee is in the background, but pleasant. A lot of malt provides heavy body. Lucious. Carbonation is light and supports all the aforementioned flavor. Malt is pale and some pils in sense.

A bit hazy. Head is pillow and solid.

I love this beer, but tis a sipper and not "candy" in any sense. Expect the darker, deeper side of cherry.

Abv at 10 is there, but not dominate in any sense.
