Quad

22oz bomber, $5.99 City Beverage, Winston-Salem, NC, USA. This (vintage?) is advertised as being 11.8% on the label.
Dark, burned orange color with a little film of head on the surface of the glass as it sits in the Urthel, Hop-iT goblet. Lace is thin and wispy and only at the extreme edges of the surface.
Aroma is brown sugar and some strong bubblegum.
Very sweet, with alcohol fairly well hidden until the finish at which point it cuts in fairly strongly, but is still more subtley warming just a few seconds after the swallow. Plenty of fruits – pear, pineapple, other alcoholic, phenolic and solvent based esters.
Despite the alcohol, the mouthfeel doesn’t suffer too much and manages to stay away from the syrupy gloop that sometimes can invade this type of brew.
A little better than average, but this is not a stunning Quad, nor is it one of Weyerbacher’s best efforts.
