Appearance – As soon as the beer hit the glass I could tell that this was a complete failure of a beer. Obviously the brewery had some major problem with the yeast strain but continued to distributed the beer. The coloring is nice but the absolute absence of any type of carbonation indicates a major brewing/bottling problem.

Smell – The candied sugar and bread malts sadly indicate that this one had a lot of potential.

Tastes – This ale tastes like sugar water.

Mouthfeel – Thin as can be with zero effervescence.

Drinkability – This has to be the first 13% ABV ale that I’ve poured down the sink but they had no business bringing this to market.

Comments – I typically don’t post reviews of skunked beers or ones with obvious product problems like this one, but the ale continues to be sold and is quite expensive so people need to know to be on the look out.

Quads are one of my most favorite kind of beer, and this bottle frankly butchered it. While the smell was that of a quad, I immediately noticed that it appeared flat. I thought I had gotten a bad bottle, until I read other reviews here. There is almost no carbonation to this "beer". It boasts a mediocre taste and an awful syrup mouthfeel. If I were this brewery I would be ashamed of this brew, they might as well have made a flavorful Nyquil. If you are looking for a good quad, look elsewhere, if you are looking for a good beer.... look elsewhere.

-taste is same as the smell to much of a wine flavor not enough of the quad at all...
-slightly oily but apart from that very carbonated
-was hoping for alot more, didnt get the quad taste much at all more close to a american wild..

A-

750ml into a tulip. Pours a slick deep walnut cola, garnet when back lit, nearly zero head, no lacing.

Aroma is of a strong vinous quality, grape Hi-C and the ooze from the bottom of a crate of dark plums that have softened. nice

Dark fruits nicely dominate the initial sensation. Pleasant skin rind bitter aftertaste till tomorrow. Cherries and oak come forward at the last moment. Relatively thin bodied lifeless mouthfeel. While the alcohol is not solvent the intensity of the flavor belies its size. Leans towards being a barleywine. The second pour which included the dregs tasted noticeably different to its betterment. Needs warmth to shine, complex.
cheers
