4.2/5 rDev -8.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: single finger frothy with excellent lacing on a murky brown with amber hue body.
S: dark fruits, molasses, spices, belgian yeast, candy and brown sugar
T: caramel and toasted malt base, brown sugar, fruits including pear, fig, some plum and raisin. Belgian yeast with some spices, mostly cinnamon and nutmeg. Hint of chocolate and toffee arrive in the finish.
M: crisp up front, finishing smooth and dry. medium to full body and moderate to high carbonation. oily, coating the palate
Overall: A lot of hype around this one. It is certainly an excellent beer. I feel there are other Quads out their that are similar enough to this one without all of the recognition. Regardless it was great to be able to try this one.
