Notes / Commercial Description:
Belgian quadrupels are a prized beer. They take months to create and are full of rich dried fruit and toffee-like flavors.

3.86/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A- pours a dark copper color with a small white fizzy head that reduces quickly, leaving. Little bit of lace behind

S- oaky vanilla Cabernet aromas with a hint if grape skin, big sweet malty notes to be expected of the style

T- sweet and boozy malt with some dark fruit notes including dark grape, a trace of oaky barrel adds some sweet vanilla flavors, the sweetness continues through to the finish with some booze at the end

M- medium-heavy body with a viscous mouthfeel, thick and foamy finish, the ABV is actually hidden quite well considering how high it is

O- a big malt bomb that suits well to the style with some dark fruity flavors as well. I would have liked a little more barrel flavor to match up with the sweetness, but overall very good

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.

From the side of the label: "Date Bottled: 11.10.16"
The label also lists: "13.4% ALC. by VOL."

Appearance: The body is a medium shade of brown that displays hues of orange, gold, and red-brown when exposed to a little light. The head fizzes up nicely with a white appearance and fades out quickly to a small ring and a few large bubbles.

Aroma: There is a light bit of alcohol with a nice faint brown sugar scent. There is a light bit of raisin.

Taste: There is a nice bit of slightly tart and sweet cherry flavor that carries this overall, light, red wine character. There is a bit of caramel and just a bit of a light mossy earthy character.

Mouthfeel: It is nice and smooth. It is a very easy beer to drink which is great considering it is 13.4% ABV. There is just a light bit of tartness to the beer which elevates the overall presence on the palate. It's just a very wonderful beer to sit and enjoy.

Overall: It's a nice easy drinking beer that has subtle cherry character that simply complements the sweet caramel and brown sugar flavors of the Quad. The alcohol is hidden masterfully and although it does become more apparent as the beer warms up, it never becomes a nuisance. I would drink it again and I recommend it.

Appearance - Pours Deep purple color with thin off white head not much lacing.

Aroma - Good bit of yeast, dark fruit, raisins and figs. The alcohol is noticeable there is just a hint of cherries typical Belgian quad aroma.

Taste - The taste is very similar to the aroma, little bit more of the cherries coming through more of the alcohol as well little bit of sweetness.
