On tap at the brewery. Brown color with tan head. Aroma is really complex with caramel, dark fruits like cherries and red berries, a slight fermented not and also oak barrel. Taste starts with sweet fruits and brown sugar, gets slightly tart and fruity in the middle and finishes with some slightly bitter burnt sugar and wood notes. Medium to full bodied with smooth mouthfeel. Really good quad with complex taste and nice barrel characteristics.

750 ml bottle into a chalice glass. 2012 edition, bottle #11091, I think.

Pours a dark ruby, cloudy, with about a one finger head and some foamy lacing. The smell is awesome- malt, plums, raisins, figs, some oak, dark grapes, light cherries, a red wine aroma. The taste is a little more malt forward, plums, prunes, figs, raisins, dates, caramel, oak, some cherries, light wine. Great stuff. Very smooth, full bodied and satisfying, well carbonated.

Might be my favorite Quad. Whatever year you can get, grab this one. It's pricey, but well worth the purchase. Had the 2013 on tap- so lucky for that- about a year ago, and rated it a 4.48.

This was the 2014 version.

Look: It pours dark brown in color with ruby highlights. It has a light brown head.

Smell: It has aromas of molasses, plums, raisins, cherry, bread, and alcohol.

Taste: It has flavors of plums, raisins, bread, cherries on the sour side, some molasses and alcohol. There are also oak overtones.

Feel: The finish is bitter and sour with alcohol warming.

Overall: The is a complex, flavorful quad with lots of aroma and good balance.

Very smooth, with different and varying tones in it! Taste evolves during the tasting off the bottle. This is à must try once in à life time beer!

Infected, such a shame. Tasted like a Brett infection and didn't take over too much, which made the beer even more disappointing. Could still taste some of the quad and barrel, and I could tell this one would've been something special, hence the high rating for something infected. Sigh

2013 bottle # 40052 poured to tulip

Pours opaque dark brown. One finger or creamy mocha color head stays on for the long haul

Aroma is hot boozey raisen with oak lurking

Booze, oak and raisen also strike in the flavor, backed with subtle notes of chocolate, plum and vanilla. Not overly sweet nor malty... rare in a quad.

Mouthfeel is lush but not syrupy, CO2 hanging around to liven it up to the bottom of the glass

Overall, I'm not sure I've had a better quad... excellent now, and with this profile it could easily age longer. If I see any more bottles of this, I might buy 'em all.
