    Single from the SAQ imports. Pours a very slight amber colour with a fizzy off-white head that disappears quickly and leaves no lace. Aromas of nuts, dark fruits, yeast, alcohol and caramel. Brown sugar taste with some raisin notes and light spices. Alcohol well hidden in the mouthfeel, but overall is not my thing.

    Pours kind of lifeless and murky. In spite of a careful pour, fine floaties fill the glass. Smells of bread and fruit. Silky mouthfeel. The taste is remarkable. Bread and yeast mix with apricots. This tastes like a friggin danish. The alcohol is almost undetectable except for a warming finish. If you can get past the appearance, this is a fantastic beer.

    The alcohol was very noticeable in this beer. A clear rust coloured beer with a minimal head. Aroma is primarily spicy and yeasty, with a definite hint of alcohol. Similar flavour profile. Not an enjoyable beer.

    Overall one flavor comes to mind, caramel. It's in the smell very strongly and certainly the dominant flavor. It's caramely in the way it cloys in your mouth and coats your throat as it goes down. It's a good flavor for sure but it really overpowers the subtle fruit and hop notes that you can barely tell are there. As I drank this I thought it was maybe more of a barleywine than a quad, and then the booze started to hit me and I just enjoyed the ride.

    Usually I’m pretty enamored with beers from this brewery, but this time...uhm, not so much. The beer pours out a medium amber color, a huge beige head with some serious lasting power. Sweet, undefined aroma with a touch of yeast and light spices. Spices, caramel, alcohol and dark fruits dominate the flavor.

    Another treat from the Freakin Frog
    Light brown with a slight red hue, never ending tan head and tons of sticky full glass lacing. Aromas of whisky, odd toffee, good malt, raisins early on, sweet spices, slight mild citrus. The taste was really nice as well with no detectable alcohol early, a bit of plum, interesting toffee, honey / orange mix is mild. Amazingly smooth and easy to drink. Slight zip, interesting hoppy bitter finish. Not your normal quad. I did need to drink this a bit warmer but the DFH 90 was sitting on the table....

    Dark honey-gold and cloudy. Flavor is rich and smooth with fruity hints and just a whisper of bitterness. The texture is smooth, but it has a nice bite that reminds you this is a strong ale. One of the best beers I have ever tried, worth seeking out.
