Can from bleeng
Pours a deep deep mahogany/amber with a syrupy body. Aroma is Isopryl alcohol, spice, and malty yeast. Flavor is a sudden onset of plant and cinammon and then water. Thin mouthfeel. Let this one bleed dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Baker for the cans! Poured clear reddish-amber with a creamy cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet bread, molasses, and fig notes with earth and dry peppery yeast accents.. warm and sweet overall.. dark and sweet overall. The flavor found more of the molasses and fig sugars at the core.. honey, bread, and dates were secondary.. dry Belgian-inspired yeast laced throughout.. lots of residual sugars on the finish. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate with decent balance.. spicy and warm on the tasty finish.. solid, but not spectacular.

Can. Pours opaque reddish brown, off white head. Aroma is metal, malt, caramel, pickles. Flavor is malty, metallic, wheaty, soapy. Has an odd pickled taste. Not a fan. Remember folks, unless you’re a vampire, blood doesn’t taste very good either.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can at the brewpub in San Fran. Pours a brown color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet toasted fruity oak. The flavor is strawberries, oak, sweet and fruity, nutty, figs, lots of things to like. Not a overly sweet Quad which is good to see. Rich and easygoing. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first shot at the 21st Amendment Brewery.
A pretty good Belgian style ale. Flavors are little drier than what might be expected with some a hint of tart in the finish. Still contains notes of dark fruits and has a substantial yeast aroma.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours murky brown with a modest tan head that disappeared in a minute or two. There is a fruity malt aroma. The flavor is mostly chocolate and treacle, making this a tasty brew. However, it does not have the complexity or the depth of the good Belgian quads.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can thanks to suzygreenberg
Appearance : Very dark brown almost black with a big creamy brown head.
Aroma : Some grains with hints of veggies. Dark fruits with hints of liquorice. Hints of hops. Liquorice is getting more present with time.
Taste : Lots of liquorice with some dark fruits. Hints of raisins (Expecially on the finish) with some more liquorice. Hints of hops. Dry finish, a bit warm and bitter. Finish gets sweeter as it warms up.
Overall : It got significantly better as it warmed up. There was a bit too much liquorice at first but it faded a bit at the end giving place to a more fruity and sweet molasses profile. Wow I can’t believe how this one got better heating up, especially the aroma. Nice beer. Thanks Ben !
