Dark plum colored pour with a light tan head.

Fruity aromas - very wine-like in nature.

Rich, balanced flavors of dark fruits, berries and brown sugar.

Lingering flavors of fruit remain on the palate, however a rather dry finish in spite of that.

Overall a wonderful beer. Been looking forward to trying this for a while and i wasn't disappointed. ikt bit pricey to buy often, so it was a real treat.

Tulip glass.

A: Pours a deep copper with a finger of grayish tan head. Not much lacing but very good retention; a thick ring sticks around for awhile.

S: Lots of brown sugar, plum, a little cherry, some alcohol. Nice complexity.

T: A more subdued version of the aroma, tending more towards the fruit and malt and less brown sugar. Pretty dry, a bit boozy though not bad considering the ABV.

M: Medium-full body and medium-high carbonation.

O: Masterfully crafted. Superb balance throughout. One of my favorite quads.

A: Cola colored with a 1/4 inch light tan head - a mix of dense foam and larger bubbles with short retention.

S: Boozy cherry and fig. Fruity esters and light spice. Caramel and toffee.

T: First impression is earthy (almost muddy) dates. Light alcohol present. Over time the flavor profile shifts to cherry and brown sugar.

M: High carbonation, light body, fairly dry finish. Perfect in this aspect.

O: A great beer, both as a exemplar for the style and across the full spectrum of beer. A little pricy, but well worth the splurge.

This is a very solid beer, and it must be one of the most balanced beers in terms of taste that I have had. The pour is smooth with an average head and lattice. The color is an amber red, a bit darker than I had expected, actually. The smell was like the taste, balanced with nothing dominating over anything else. It has a high alcohol content (11%), so there is a trace of a kick in its taste. But like the sour fruit and caramel tastes, it is balanced in well. A solid beer that I would easily drink again and again.

From bottle no. 160216-07:39. Sampled on August 17, 2012. Served at about 50 degrees Farenheit

It pours an attractive dark amber brown, opaque, with a fluffy beige head that settles down after several minutes.

The aroma has plenty of characteristics including dark malts, Belgian candied sugar, brown sugar, yeast, plum, bread, and an impossible to find alcohol bite considering it is over 11%.

The body is smooth and bold.

I loved tasting this because it began with a sweet, smooth caramel malt note blended with dark fruits and then a pungent bitter bite on the tail end. This is incredibly well balanced and a joy to drink.

I rarely give 5's to anything but this is worth it. It would be fabulous if every Quad in the world was as good.
