3.36/5  rDev -12.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle poured into a NB snifter.

A - Pours a hazy amber/gold. A one-finger head of loose, light tan bubbles dissolves quickly, leaving a clump of bubbles along one side and a star-burst of very fine sheen spreading out from the center. Held to a full-spectrum light, the beer is a rich, dark, copper orange/red and rather hazy, almost cloudy. Light, thin legs on the sides once it warms.

S - Even on the pour, the nose wafted out of the glass and filled the area. It's pleasantly complex and enjoyable on its own. Cherry/Apple Jolly Ranchers, Juicy Fruit gum, light plums, ripe bananas, a touch of light brown sugar, soft caramels, and moderately toasted malts. A bit of heat in the nose hints at the ABV. As it warms, the nose folds together and gets softer.

T - Similar to the nose, but darker across the board. Reminiscent of golden rum. Ripe tree fruits, light molasses, noticeably toasted malts and caramelized sugars. ABV is well-integrated into the taste profile, but it's not enough to hide it, so it dominates at the beginning before relenting and letting the flavors through. As it warms, a bit of spice in the finish appears.

M - A bit fizzy to start. Moderate body with solid, mouth-filling structure. Well-integrated components. A nip of a burn on the swallow gives the high ABV away. Finish is semi-sweet with just a touch of the sugars remaining along the tongue, initially fading quickly, but then lingering just on the edge of disappearing. It also has a bit of a rough edge to it, although warming takes that off.

O - Some interesting flavors in this Quad, but the taste profile was too dark for my personal preference, as if some of the sugars were clearly burnt. The nose was the best part of the glass. The individual aspects of the taste profile also seemed out-of-synch with each other, like slightly mismatched colors in a palette. It's worth a taste, especially if you're a fan of Quads, but not one I'll be looking for in the future.
