$4.99 Green’s, Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA. 11.2oz bottle.
Mid-brown pour with thin creamy head that disappears pretty quickly (as expected for the ABV). Quad nose, but mellow, not aggressive. Figs, some Madeira?
Typical Quad notes in the taste. Brown sugar, raisins. VERY smooth. At first it seems a little light on the mouthfeel side, but I suspect that this compliments the beer nicely to make it very drinkable. Superb, sherry like aftertaste, and a really creamy finish. Alcohol is nowhere to be seen – superbly hidden, one might even say dangerously so. Not especially “spicy” as such, but has a slight Winter Warmer characteristic.
Overall a delightful Belgian Quad with all the right moves. Highly quaffable so you need to take care. Quality.
