It's a Jumping-off Point!
No, not THEM juices (though from what I hear, they are quite fermentable).
Anyway, I'm drinking his Quad right now and it is the fucking tits, and I had to just post a quick note about rockin' it is. Personally I think it's more like a Biere de Garde, but a 40+ point Biere de Garde. Wow, this is really well done. Tons of spice on the nose, like coriander and maybe allspice or something similar. Perhaps a touch of herbs de provence. There's also an overwhelming fruitiness from the yeast, like the fruit I get on my BdG, which is why it reminds me of that...not to mention how dry it is (he said it finished @ 1.006, which I totally believe now) The alcohol is supposedly around 9%, but they it does not show at all...which is damned impressive. No alcohol burn whatsoever. Very easy-drinking with a lot of residual dextrins, giving it so much more body than 1.006 (or the dry finish) would denote. There's some caramel and even a bit of roasty/toasty shit going on as well, like creme brulee and bourbon. What I really love is the execution, though...close to flawless, relatively clean but still a ton of good Belgian esters. I would SO enter this in the BdG category into comps if I were you...you would win bling all over. The carb is level and balanced, and complements the dextrinous mouthfeel. The color is very dark brownish-red...caramel-ey. Dude, this is in my top 10 homebrews ever. Nicely done.
Sorry for the disjointed review, I would have done a more structured one like I normally do, but I was just taking a break from Dexter while wifey feeds kiddo and had to post something because this stuff was rockin my face.
