25.4 oz bottled February 2019 (a year ago) poured into a chalice at fridge temp 10% ABV. The beer pours mostly bright medium brown in color with light brown head. The head recedes to a fat ring and leaves a few spots of lacing. The aroma is mild with dark fruits and a little burnt sugar. The taste is semisweet caramel, cola and dark fruit with moderate bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, good. It's a bit thin and uncomplicated for a Quad. I can't taste the pecans advertised on the label. I would drink it again, but would not purchase if that makes sense.

Had it from tap at the local World of Beer. Poured into a snifter. Dark reddish brown color with nice beige head and good lacing. Sweet dark fruit smell and taste. Pecan and almond flavors, some root beer. A bit thin on the feel,for a quad. Overall an nice flavorful beer.

This is a terrific, unique beer. It has all the sweet scrumptiousness of a praline, with that dusky, subversively bitter aftertaste that let’s you know it’s really all about the pecans. Rich head at the get-go, with rapid thinning. Deep, cloudy, translucent brown. Praline nose is subdued. Taste described above. Is it a Belgian quad? I wouldn’t call it that. But it’s good.

10 is brewed in the style of a Quadrupel, available in 750ml. bottles and on limited draft. A 10th anniversary offering by Lazy Magnolia.

Poured from a 750ml. bottle to a snifter glass.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp, frothy head of a tan-caramel complexion over a highly opaque cherry grenadine body with abundant carbonation. Retention is very good and lacing is light and patchy. 3.5

(Smell) Nutty bread malts, tangy and lightly acidic fruit notes, notable cleanliness, fairly light bodied, low notable sweetness in the aroma. 3.5

(Taste) Toasted bread malts, moderately viscous fruit syrups, raisins and date sugars, light stone fruit undertones, soft spiciness, cold smoke and drying nutty character on the back end. A bit heavier-bodied than expected from the aroma, and an enjoyable flavor overall, if not overly complex. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, lightly residual, smooth, lightly syrupy, medium dry. Carbonation is modest, generating a mild frothiness and a medium crisp finish. Body is medium for the style, shy of heavy overall. Balance is nearly even sweet to tangy and acidic to grainy. Alcohol presence is mild and there are no off characters. 3.75

(Overall) A respectable Southern-inspired quad that does a better job at playing true-to-style than expected, although a bit straightforward with the fruit notes comes off a bit uninspired. That said, a decent drinking Quadrupel, and likely a respectable achievement for Mississippi's relatively quiet indie beer scene. 3.75

This is good Quad but not great. Kind of weak or mild. No head poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass. Dark amber color with a bit of a haze. Flavor is good, just not amazing. I would drink it again.

Clear brown pour with a tan one-finger head. Somewhat nutty aroma. Taste has dried fruit (raisin and plum standing out) and wet bread flavors upfront. Can also taste some caramel and a hint of alcohol and smoke.

the packaging on this is gorgeous, and i love the concept, a pecan quad, but the execution is poor in my opinion. that or there was something wrong with the bottle we consumed. it was insanely sweet, but also tasted oxidized and a little off. maybe picked up some weird yeast form the nuts, but its off to me. i can smell the nuts in the nose, earthy and sturdy, a neat combination with the sweet biscuity caramel malts in the middle. seems a little one dimensional though, not as layered as most quads are, and thats true with the taste of this. so in addition to having some weird off flavor, it also doesnt have as much going on as it probably should. i like the flavor of the pecan here, but there is nothing about this that says quad to me. its a little like an oxidized english barleywine. nothing belgian or anything on the yeast front, and i dont know about non-grain fermentables in here. falls apart as it warms up too, i just really didnt care for this thing. big let down, and i reckon they could make this again and do a much better job with it. i love the idea but the beer is utterly forgettable. if i got a messed up bottle, id like to try it again...

Pours hazy, chestnut brown with minimal head. Taste is a solid quad--raisin, dark fruit, dark bread, and smoked malt. A solid and above average quad that I would get again.

750 ml bottle. Pours deep brown with finger off white head, fades quickly, little lace. Sweet brown sugar and some dark fruits in the aroma. Sticky sweet taste, burnt brown sugar, cherry, a little booze. Medium smooth mouthfeel. Don't drink a lot of quads, but this was a tasty brew to share.

Poured out a dark, dark amber color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of dried dark fruits, toffee and malt. It tasted of spiced, roasted malt, dried fruits and sweet toffee.

Lazy Magnolia 10
750mL bottle into a chalice
No bottling dates

A: Dar mahogany with ruby hues, just under 1 fingers width of light tan head dissipates quickly and leaves almost no lacing. 3.5

S: Smokey char, some sugary sweetness, a nutty character, subtle booze, some spice. I like. 4

T: Like the nose the most prominent flavor is a smokey char. There's an indiscriminate sweetness, and a subtle nutty character. Sweetness builds significantly as it warms. Doesn't really taste like a quad per se, not really sure how I'd classify it though. 3.75

M/D: Fuller side of medium body, carbonation on the lower end but appropriate, ABV well masked, drinkability is ok- somewhat limited by the sweetness. 3.5

O: Interesting beer, sweetness gets a little much towards the end but definitely worth a try. 3.75

Pours an effervescent amber with a little orange & a pinky of sand colored head. Traces of lacing & head retention

S: Figs, leafy hops, some cherry

T: Slight figgyness, smokeyness, wasn't expecting that, leafy hops, faint raisin & pear notes up front. More smokeyness, raisins, dryness, a bit of plum as this warms, faint cherry tobacco notes as well. Finishes jammy, with a touch of tangerine, some tobacco & a little cherry, slight dryness & dried orange slices as well

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation, thins out as it warms

Was hoping for better, this isn't really that good a quad, not horrible, but not memorable either. I was initially intrigued by the smokeyness, but don't really feel like it really meshed with the other flavors

A: This poured a translucent dark mahogany with moderate light tan head.
S: It smelled like earthy wheat and grassy hops, with some clove and banana and nutty toffee.
T: It tasted like earthy wheat and nutty toffee, with some clove and banana and grassy hops. It had a clean earthy aftertaste.
M: It was oily with smooth natural carbonation. Big, slick body.
D: This was a decent quad with delicate scent and taste. Not as much dark fruit as I prefer, but still enjoyable. The body was very nice, and the finish was smooth with well hidden alcohol, so it was easy to drink. Seems built to age, but can also be enjoyed fresh. Not top tier for the style, but a solid brew.

750mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 10.99. No obvious bottle dating but this just hit local shelves in 05/2015. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku.

Pours a dark but transparent ruby chestnut hue with a huge four finger ecrue head. Thin, persistent collar. A few meager trails of lace.

Smells strangely floral with marshmallows, cherries and burnt sugar. Dark fruits are more forward as it warms.

Flavors of dark fruit, sweetner, overripe grapes, semi vineous herbal bitterness, burnt sugar, marshmallow, a sweet and fruity yeasty note and a little booze. This starts out flat and slightly awkward cold but gets significantly smoother and better overall as it reaches room temperature.

Semi creamy, medium full body with understated carbonation. Flavors of dark fruit, sweetner, grapes and burnt brown sugar interplay in the aftertaste.

Lazy Magnolia stretches their higher abv with their 10th anniversary quad. Decent overall, particularly after the chill has faded, but not quite up to the standards of the truly great examples of the style.

Poured from 750 ml into St. Bernardus goblet
A- Murky, muddy brown with an amber tinge in the light. Small, off-white head, no lace at all.
S- some sugar/Belgian candied sugar, but slight. Some smokiness and nuttiness as well.
T- Belgian phenolic flavor as well as the smoked malt flavor. A bit of raisin in there as well.
M- Medium body, low on the carb for a quad. somewhat subtle booze for a 10% abv.
O- Not quite what I was expecting from a quad. Some qualities were there, but just not executed to perfection. Still not a bad beer at all. I would drink again.
