A-murky ,dark brown color with ruby hints and a decent tan head with some lacing

S-dark fruit, caramel , roasted malt, hint of chocolate

T-raisins, figs, roasted malt, toffee, little chocolate and caramel, alcohol well-integrated

F-medium body with light carbonation, smooth and creamy

O-a quintessential Quad near the top of the category, I prefer slightly the Westy 12 and Rochefort 10, but for price and availability this is tops

Been wanting to give this one a try for awhile due to its high rating and easy availability. The hype is real, this beer is quite good!

Pours a dark amber in color with a bubbly cream colored head. Plenty of carbonation bubbles and a nice lace trail.

Plum, cherry, grape, smell with an essence of caramel and a tiny bit of alcohol.

Sweet fruity flavor at first with a slight sourness to it after. A good malty caramel flavor also.

Mouthfeel is stellar! Light with some carbonation and next to no bitter finish

Overall I really liked this beer even though quads aren't my favorite. I will surely drink this one again!
