A: Cola colored with a 1/4 inch light tan head - a mix of dense foam and larger bubbles with short retention.

S: Boozy cherry and fig. Fruity esters and light spice. Caramel and toffee.

T: First impression is earthy (almost muddy) dates. Light alcohol present. Over time the flavor profile shifts to cherry and brown sugar.

M: High carbonation, light body, fairly dry finish. Perfect in this aspect.

O: A great beer, both as a exemplar for the style and across the full spectrum of beer. A little pricy, but well worth the splurge.

This is a very solid beer, and it must be one of the most balanced beers in terms of taste that I have had. The pour is smooth with an average head and lattice. The color is an amber red, a bit darker than I had expected, actually. The smell was like the taste, balanced with nothing dominating over anything else. It has a high alcohol content (11%), so there is a trace of a kick in its taste. But like the sour fruit and caramel tastes, it is balanced in well. A solid beer that I would easily drink again and again.

From bottle no. 160216-07:39. Sampled on August 17, 2012. Served at about 50 degrees Farenheit

It pours an attractive dark amber brown, opaque, with a fluffy beige head that settles down after several minutes.

The aroma has plenty of characteristics including dark malts, Belgian candied sugar, brown sugar, yeast, plum, bread, and an impossible to find alcohol bite considering it is over 11%.

The body is smooth and bold.

I loved tasting this because it began with a sweet, smooth caramel malt note blended with dark fruits and then a pungent bitter bite on the tail end. This is incredibly well balanced and a joy to drink.

I rarely give 5's to anything but this is worth it. It would be fabulous if every Quad in the world was as good.
