A - A dark brown with some light shining through...a big tan head forms and slowly fades...nice lacing

S - Very sweet on the nose...big doses of grapes and other fruits

T - Once again...very sweet here...but it works...malty flavors and sweetness mixing with wine qualities of grapes and a little bit of dryness

M - Medium to full bodied...lack of carbonation makes for a smooth mouthfeel

D - This was my first Quad and I must say it was pretty tasty...you usually can't go wrong with Sly Fox

Thanks Kempleton for this one
Bottle poured into a tulip produced a good two fingers worth of off white head. The body of this brew was a wonderful maroon color and the head left a little ring of lace around the glass

Aromas of dark fruits and grapes filled my nose a good quad smell that is for sure. This had one of the best noses on it for an American Quad

Flavors of dark fruits, caramel and a slight alcohol warmth that arose as it warmed in the glass medium to thick mouthfeel light carbonation on the tongue

Drank it today and I must say I enjoyed every drop I was quite impressed by this brew. Dead on Style wise for a Quad, I would have thought it was a Belgian. Great job Sly Fox keep it up. I would by it again for sure

A - Pours a lovely deep almost violet color. The head dissipated rather quickly.

Ar - Very full aroma of dark fruits, I get raisins.

T - Good balance of malt, not too sweet. Alcohol well masked. Finish is plum and dry.

O - Nice beer to slowly sip. Opens up more as you let it warm up.

Pours very dark brown with muddy bubbly head and plentiful lacing.

Lots of clove in the nose. Mild spiciness with coriander and some pepper. Creamy banana ice cream and some malty sweetness.

Taste follows spice trail but with more booze. Alcohol is assertive with flavors following and preceding. Some nanners and spice, burnt sugar is nice, then warming booze, then warm bread with musty herb.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and warming.

I don't associate Slyfox with Belgian styles....but this was good!
