look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

(4.0) A: Dark mahogany brown with a tall head that quickly recedes to a thin ring. Nice lacing that clings.

(3.75) S: Caramel, toffee, oak, raisins, plum, nutty qualities, and mix of spices. Smooth with a nice woody-toffee aroma overall.

(4.0) T: Caramel, brown sugar, plum, oak, raisins, spices, and hints of cherries. A very good mix of different textbook quad flavours, each identifiable separately and combined. Not the boldest and most flavourful quad but agreeable nonetheless.

(3.75) M: Lighter bodied with a standard higher carbonation for the style. Pleasantly dry and chalky.

(4.0) D: Pretty good quad highlighted by smooth caramel, woody, and dark fruit flavours.

Purchased at the LCBO for a steep $4.60 for a 330ml bottle. Served at 8deg C in a tulip.

A- 4.25- Opens well and pours a ton of head that is gone in 1min. VERY dark.

S- 4.0- Roasted malt and some nuts. Caramel. Traditional quad

T- 3.75- Pretty good but not a Roch10 or anything. Priced above the 10 too! LOL

M- 3.75- Lots of carbonation. Sickly sweet and heavy

O- 3.80- Not the greatest beer especially at this price point

Food Pairing

This pretty good quad went well with...... Brazed beef short rib with root vegetables and potato

Enjoy!
