Notes: Belgian quadrupels are a prized beer. They take months to create and are full of rich dried fruit and toffee-like flavors. This ale was aged in Silver Oak Cabernet Barrels for four months leading to a divine beer that is perfect for pairing with fine cheeses, gamey meats, and a fire. Available in 10oz pours only.

Tart/ sour cherry. More sour ale than Belgian quad. Still very enjoyable.

Pours a murky brown, minimal head. Nice tart cherry aroma. Flavor is tart cherry, a bit yeasty. Carbonation is good, medium bodied. Overall a decent BA quad, not my favorite.

Notes of fresh dried cherries, dark caramel, sweet toffee, fruity molasses, dark dried fruits, some chocolate, dark fruits, Cabernet red wine, oak, black and red grapes, raisin, plum, fig, cherry, date, apple, pear, apricot, some phenolic clove, with mild earthy floral hops. Medium lighter bodied, slick and smooth with creamy moderate carbonation. Overall a nice barrel-aged quad with cherries.

L:. Pours a muddy purple brown with a very miniscule tan head and no lacing on the glass.

S:. The fruity and jammy especially with notes of Cabernet grapes from the barrel, this beer has a lot of tannins. Notes of cherry and caramel, but the quad elements are a little overshadowed by the wine character.

T:. Fruity and jammy, wine tannins especially Cabernet grapes, notes of caramel, some cherry. The wine character is still stronger than I'd prefer.

F:. Full body, smooth carbonation.

O:. I wish this beer toned down the wine a little bit and had more quad character.

A - Hazy dark copper body, some minimal transparency, not much of a head on the pour.

S - Out front with acidic cherry notes on the plus, a hit of plastic on the minus.

T - Cherry bread, with an open that emphasizes the fruit, a middle that focuses on bread and malt and introduces woody barrel notes, and a finish that lingers over acidity and a long cherry trail. Very nice.

M - Moderate carbonation, a light weight, and a subtle dryness in the finish.

O - Not at all what I'd expect. The cherry is forward, the bread is there but receding a bit, and the feel avoids booziness in favor of a highly drinkable open and finish that is dangerous, given the big time ABV. A welcome take on the Quad.

Bottle shared by Ben. Thanks man!

Brown body with some transparency. Small had that recedes soonish after pouring. Cherries come through. Some light malty, leathery, tobacco notes. Body is thinner than I like for beers of the ilk. Fun.

L: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a medium brown color and a thick, cloudy consistency. There was a thin, off white, foamy head that quickly dissipated. Average lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of cherries, Belgian yeast, dark fruit, oak, and malt.

T: Tasted of a mild amount of malt (not overly prevalent), some Belgian-style yeast, a ton of cherries (the dominant ingredient), a bit of oak, and some dark fruit (raisins, it would seem). A vibrant and interesting flavor. It borders on being one-note (the cherries are certainly powerful), but it manages to work well. It's sweet, warm, and very tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A nice take on the quad style. Drinkable.

Had on tap. Pours a slightly hazy amber with red hues, a thin white head that dissipated quickly and left little blotchy lacing. Smells of cherries, yeast, bread and a hint of oak. Tastes of tart cherries, yeast, bready malts, dark fruits and a very nice red wine/oak presence. Medium bodied, well carbonated, slightly tart finish, smooth mouth feel. A very unique beer taht I would seek out again.

Pours a one-finger white head that fades quickly leaving traces of lace. Hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Sour cherry nose and flavor follows - sour cherry, too much, needs more malt, the high ABV, 13.4%, is hidden. Bottled Nov 2016, pricey at $10.95 for a 375ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Nice deep garnet brew, bordering on brown, with a reasonable (for the style) cream-colored head. Brew is nearly transparent, although dark.

On the nose, it's a big Belgian quad with cherries - there's no hint of barrels. Syrup and honey, cherries, dates, prunes, dark bread. Very nice aroma.

Surprisingly lighter than a traditional quad on the palate, with more vinous and tart notes from the cherries and wine barrel. I wouldn't quite call it sour, but it's definitely a touch tart, and the barrel comes through with remarkable strength: oak, must, and dirt. There's a ton going on in this brew, and while it's not a perfectly even blend, everything does come together for an overall wonderful taste.

Smooth and easy on the palate; incredibly easy drinking, feeling closer to 8 or 9% ABV than 11%. This honestly feels less potent than many tripels in the 9-10% range.

This is a unique and worthy brew!

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled November 10th 2016.

Deep garnet and slightly brown with a good dark plum and date color. Fleeting creamy khaki head, settled to a simple collar and always re-poplulated. Not much noticeable carbonation, but some slightly transparent ones along the sides.

Aroma hits real nicely. Deep sensing cherries and pitted dark fruits. Slightly fig and raisin but with a brighter quality. Hits with some sharp clove flavors as well, a bit of fruitcake like bread tones as well. Mild oak sensations ride out as well.

Palate is quite big and large. Sharp hits of cherry juice and liquid raisin on first sip. A bit of hot booze quite a bit on the aftertaste, which sort of takes away from the bready qualities. Solid rounded mouthfeel, but not much barrel character coming through in flavors.

Comes off a bit large for it's own good, and crushing the little nuances, but still a tasty quad.

Look - hazy mahogany with an off-white head that dissipates quickly but has some pretty, but spotty, lacing.
Smell - cherries and other dark fruit, brown sugar, bready malts, spicy yeast, and warm alcohol - very aromatic.
Taste - cherries hit first, yeast, cloves, and a strong foundation of barrel notes and wine.
Feel - medium carbonation, slightly viscous body due to the high ABV and barrel aging, but smooth finish.
Overall, it's a nice example of a big barrel-aged beer, but it lacks the depth and complexity of a quad. The nose hits the mark, but the flavor profile is dominated by barrel notes.

I'm only disappointed in this one relative to my usual love for Wicked Weed and appreciation for big quads like Abt 12 that helped me get into beer. In this case, the complexity I was expecting simply wasn't there. Instead, we get a 13.7% booze bomb with good barrel character, but not much richness or sweetness. Mentioning cherries on the label may as well have been a placebo effect, for all that I could detect.

L - Poured into snifter, reddish brown, hazy, wirth a thin off-white head that quickly dissapates.
S - Very belgian yeast thing going on, spicy cloves, ripe fruit, alcohol shows as it warms.
T- lots of estery flavors, slightly medicinal, grape, sweet, not much cherry except for a somewhat cough syrupy taste.
F- Thin mouthfeel and body for a quad but that might be due in part to high alcohol
O - Can't really say much good about a beer from a brewery I love. It's not bad, but lacks the refined smoothness and complexities of a really quality quad. To be fair, I got this from a store that has it in the fridge and I drank it cold (letting it warm) and I strongly feel that the belgian dark ales are better around 55. Maybe this is also in that same category as 3 philosphers and just isn't that good fresh. But what I have in front of me is just average (although above average strength!).

375mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 8.99. Bottled 11/10/16. Served in a Wicked Weed snifter.

Pours an opaque orange tinted brown with about a half finger of manilla head. That froth fades to a milky layer and full crown that fails to leave any lacing behind.

Smells of wine, cherries, dark fruits, raisin bread and a little sugar. Pretty nice.

The flavors are estery, fruity and sweet. Belgian yeast character rings out strong and clear. Raisins, overripe cherries, sparkling grape juice, wet oak, apple skins, cooked caramel, some earthy grains, bread and a dollop of booze. The cherry and wine barrel (the label doesn't specify wine barrel but that's what my admittedly fallible senses tell me) blend well with the robust yeast. Surprisingly little alcohol presence given how strong this is.

Creamy, full body with subtle carbonation. Those strong Belgian yeast esters pervade the finish with some complementary notes of cherry and wine soaked oak.

Wicked Weed comes through with another solid entry. Oh My Quad juggles its yeast, barrel and cherries well, making it well worth a try.
