On draught at the PDX public house, Issaquah's Quad Frog is hazy dark chesnut with with a small eggshell head that leaves decent lace.

Smell is not to strong or thick, like grape soda, with some very clean alcohol vapors.

Taste is tangy, fruity grape kool-aide flavor, caramel and brown sugar, spicy with phenols but fairly clean and smooth, especially for how big it is - I can't believe it's only 13.5%! Still, you can tell there is some serious underlying booze, with the solvents coming out more as it warms.

Mouthfeel is oily and slick, not to heavy, a nice, softer carbonation.

Drinkability is good, I dig this beer, but it's a beast and not something you can drink to much of. More of a massive BSDA then a quad, at least at this point it lacks nuance. I'd love to see this in *bombers* (don't jack us with the ceramics), would be a great aging candidate. I think it's draft only now though. =(

From notes. On tap at Brouwers Big Wood Festival in Seattle. This one was actually called Woody Quad Frog, and so perhaps should be added as a separate beer. Since the wood element didn't come through strongly to me, I did not add it as a new beer.

Beautiful, reddish amber. Modest lacing and a bit of head.

Slightly sour, malty, and subdued. Some booze.

some sweet maltiness, surprisingly a bit sour, a hint of wood. Boozy, and with a slightly bitter, dryish finish.

Modest carbonation, dryish finish, some alc warming.

Uniqueness is compelling, but one goblet was plenty. It did not strike me as similar to other quads, a style I enjoy greatly.

Filled the growler at the Issaquah Brewery (in Issaquah, obviously) and drank it the same night, so it was almost on tap.

Nice looking beer. Strong flowery and fruity flavor (and smell) masks the notable strength and makes it surprisingly drinkable. Not overly sweet but with very little bitterness at all.

Feels nice and smooth in the mouth. Try it if you can find it.
