An 5 ounce pour into a Gulden Drak tulip glass at the Horse & Hound in Charlottesville. From notes. Reviewed 8 July 2011.

A: HUGE head fills half the glass. Off-white/beige. Very dark and not susceptible to light. Some bubbles coat the sides of the glass.

S: Green apple Jolly Ranchers. Seriously. Not much else.

T: A bit flat/underwhelming. Having sampled a truly horrendous Maredsous Tripel (which I quite enjoyed from the bottle) on-tap at the same establishment, I suspect the bar is the issue more than the beer. Quite sweet, very big, noticeable alcohol. Periously close to reminding me cough syrup. Purple grapes. Not a great quad, but serviceable. I'd like to dry it from the bottle.

M: Meh. Disappointingly flat. Slightly sticky. I'd like more carbonation.

O: A good beer, that I'd like to try again some place else. At this juncture, I can't recommend it.

This is a very lively beer so watch out with the opening of the bottle and the pour!

I am a quad lover and when i saw this one at the Bierparadijs in Meer, Belgium, i decided to try it.

I was not disappointed at all as you can see on my ratings. Bottle best before may 2014.

Poured in my Struise glass the beer sizzles in the glas and it gives on the biggest heads i have seen the last months. Deep darkbrown fluid with lots of carbonation. Goood.

Smell is somewhat caramellic sweetness. Taset is good, a very drinkable quad but the alcohol is not really hidden.

750 ml bottle poured into tulip glass

A - Pours a dark brown with a two-finger khaki head. Head retention is pretty good. Head dissipates to leave a thin crown. Some decent streaks of lacing are left behind.

S - Dark sugars mixed with raisins, figs and molasses give this beer an aroma that is quite sweet. Fresh baked bread and roasted malts make up the backbone of the aroma.

T - Sweet and boozy. Almost a tad too sweet for me. Dark fruits, bready malts and dark sugar are what really stand. Some subtle notes of caramel and cherries. Spicy alcohol makes it presence well known.

M - Medium-bodied with medium-high level of carbonation. Sticky and slick mouthfeel. Plenty of warmth from the alcohol.

O - I've had superior quads to this. The ample sweetness and lack of notable flavors were negatives for me. I don't think this is undrinkable by any means. I just think there are better options. Seek out if you are a big fan of quads.

best by date of 11/2020

served into a duvel tulip

pours an almost black with a ginormous frothy bubbly head.

dark fruits and yeasty smell. some maltiness just for good measure

starts off with a dark coffee. the sweetness of the dark fruits comes in and is finished off by a carbonated yeast.

almost a little too syrupy but the taste work well.
