Hell On High Quad Bock (Er!) Belgian-Style Ale
Marginally defeated on BeerAdvocate.com, I've found at least one use for Hell On High Quad Bock Belgian-Style Ale.
Nose: Strong medicinal, strong alcohol-based vanilla extract.
Taste: Alcohol, possible Belgian earthiness (give 'em that , eh?), low to absent hops, more drinkable than Skullsplitter.
Alcohol (by volume): 14%.
I read on Beer Advocate, that the alcohol was overwhelming, and the remains of one reviewer's sample was two thirds down the drain. But if you have tried whiskey or scotch neat, then Hell On High is a cakewalk - with bubbles to boot.
So that one use I recommend for this beer? I feel that it pairs nicely with a cold.
Pairing: Early-onset common cold.
