On tap at the brewery. Taster poured into plastic cup. Hazy amber with a finger of frothy head. Hard to assess lacing or retention. Aromas are honey, warm banana, caramel, raisin, and dates. Taste is brown sugar, yeasty, sweetness then late mild bitterness. Moderate carbonation, more than I like for the style. Dry finish.

Has some great flavors throughout but I feel it misses the style mark. Not much of a quad in my opinion but someone below said it reminded them of a scotch ale/wee heavy and I would agree with that.

Dark rum soaked fruits: raisin, touch of cherry. Alcohol is prominent but not overbearing, still allowing the fruits to come through. Slick mouthfeel with mild/low carbonation.

Would love to try this in one of the barrel-aged versions.

Lots of raisin, plum, date, fig. Tastes more of a scotch/ wee heavy or strong ale than quad.

This a good, enjoyable, strong beer but first impression is that this is more of a strong ale than a quad, at least to me. Not your typical Belgian quad, if you call it that, in that the malts are heavier, the booze is more pronouned and the typical Belgian yeast strain isn't there. I only state this in case you are strict on style interpretation and except your average quad. That being said, poured a dark, swampy brown with reddish tints and a one finger head that died quick. The malts and some booze are really prevelant in the nose, and it's like I'm picking up caramel, toffee, possbily some dark fruits like raisins and figs. Medium to heavy bodied, slightly chewey, the beer is a sipper as it's real hearty. I'm getting an abundance of caramel and toffee malts, as well hints of honey although if I wasn't told they were in there I wouldn't really discern them at all. Some raisins/figs as well, touchs of bready malts as well for balance. Not much in terms of hops or yeast but it is still a smooth beer. Heavy, dry finish makes for an enjoyable beer.
