Appearance – This one poured a dingy orangish-brown with a good, off-white head that kind of surprised me because the cork came out without the least bit of “pop”.

Smell – This Quad still has a stiff darkish malt base. There’s some Belgian yeast in there along with some dark fruits, especially raisins and dates, but not the big fruity explosion that you get with some examples of the style. The nose is still kind of tight, even after the ale warms.

Taste – The taste opens up a bit more. There’s a strong bitterness to the malts that I enjoy but may surprise those seeking the typical style standard. The sweets actually step back from the nose. The yeast is solid but the booze is somewhat harsh. Not burning, but definitely in your face.

Mouthfeel – This really isn’t much over medium-bodied and the bitter dryness almost felt kind of hoppy. I enjoyed the mild but efficient carbonation though.

Drinkability – This ale was a good drinker. But, I gotta say, when I think of Quads I think of greatness, and in that sense it missed the mark.
