My 100th beer review! I've been very busy with work and finally got around to catching up on some of my reviews. I love Quads and thought it would be appropriate as my 100th review and first beer in the new year.
Pours from 750 ml bottle into Duvel tulip a beautiful amber/mahogany with a tight ivory colored cap with immense retention and lacing.
The nose is both heavenly and delicate. Soft scents of raisins, cherries, figs, yeast and brown sugar can be found punctuated by a nice pungent earthy/herbal aroma.
Taste begins with prickly carbonation on the tongue up front quickly giving way to a dazzling array of cherries and raisins. About mid palate caramel, and light toffee notes begin to really shine through the fruit along with a medicinal cloves. Finishes quite smooth leaving the flavors to linger for a long time on the tongue.
Mouthfeel is medium body. The initial pour and ABV had lead me to believe that this would be a thicker beer, but is infact misleading. Despite that, it still very good for the style.
Drinkability is superb. Quads need to be sipped and appreciated, but this one could be taken to different heights because its so smooth medium bodied and just damn delicious.
