Bottle at a BOSS meeting. Aged for about 2 years from date of purchase. Pours a dark amber with two fingers of off white foam. Aroma is lots of figs and plums. Somewhat bitter, more than I was expecting. Flavor is dark fruits, malt, raisins, really nice overall. Bitterness is good. Very nice beer. Better than I expected.

Not the best quad I've ever had. Poured with a very small cream colored head no lace and a hazy brownish amber color. Aroma is canned prunes raisins dates figs dark malt. Flavor is like aroma plus some carbonic tang And yeasty bitterness. Body is okay.

Bottled. Nice raisin nose, caramel and chocolate. Very tart, fruity flavor, caramel, citrus edge, alcohol. Quite nice but doesn’t seem like a real quad.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Big sugary raisin nose. Medium copper color. Supersweet initial / some tart fruit in mid / finishes a bit thick and offers more sweetness. Heavy body. Full of intense sweet frutiness, and a bit of tartness. Good, if unexceptional.

Small shortlasting head. Aroma is sweet fruity, caramel malts, dried fruits, raisins, honey, butterscotch, citrus, dark sugar, almond cake. Taste is kind of medical harsh, caramel malts, harsh grass, dried fruits, paper, butterscotch, raisins, citrus peel, almond essence. Medium to longlasting bitterness, harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Intense. Pours a muddy brown with a tan head. Smells very malty, like raspberry fig newtons, with some hazelnut and maple syrup. More fig newtons in the taste. Very malty taste, can’t drink too much, but tasty. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
