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.

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.

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.

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 !

12oz can. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with a light tan head, that has decent retention and lacing. Aroma is fairly strong and sweet, dark fruit, figs, yeast, lots of sugars. Balanced and creamy flavor containing dark fruit, figs, raisin, plums, bready dark malt and some molasses. The finish has a slight mild bitterness or alcohol bite. Smooth and creamy, with the alcohol well hidden. A very sessionable Belgian Strong Dark Ale.
