Enjoyed on tap at The Independent in Tampa, FL.

A thick finger of light tan froth tops a deep mahogany-ruby body. Nice lacing on the St. Bernardus glass. A touch of yeasty funk blends well with the fruity aromas, with cherry and raspberry most noticeable. The flavor is a fine mixture of sweet and tart, with a distinct maraschino cherry flavor tempered from cloying by chocolate and caramel malt flavors. I would like a bit bolder flavor from SH Quad, but I don't say that in a disappointed way. Rather, it is tasty and enjoyable, but I suppose I was hoping for a bit more, something more complicated.

Yet for what SH Quad does, it does well. It is smooth but effervescent enough. The flavor is fine with a nice sweet finish, and the high ABV (11%) is not obstreperous.

A good solid Quad, pricey at $9 but worthy.

Served on tap into a branded tulip at Cambrinus in Bruges.

A: Blackish purple on first glance, but red notes in the edges when held to light. 2 finger light tan head with good retention.

S: very sweet aroma of sugared dark fruits and jam. Yeast character subdued. Very sweet smelling with brown sugar rounding things out.

T: Sweet in the taste as well. Berries mainly. Slightly nutty character. Finishes long with a butterscotch and caramel note covered by yeast and brown sugar.

A good quad overall, and must be some special offer since I didn't even see this at the brewery.

Poured into my new Hair of the Dog snifter... Thanks a ton Sammy... this is a super cool glass.

Deeeep red.... dark cherry juice with a shot lasting dark tan head ... but a nice cap remains for the entire glass.

Nose is rich and malty with significant dried cherry, plum and nice caramel and toast.

Flavor mirrors the nose with some subtle spiciness.

Medium bodied with a smooth everpresent carbonation.

Pretty nice for sure and not too bad at ~$10 for the 750.
