3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2014 bottle. Pours a dark murky reddish-brown with a big off-white head that lingers. Sweet aroma, of dark fruits, booze, malt, brown sugar. Taste is metallic and boozy, of malt, rum, dark fruits. Lingering fruity sweetness and malt that ends watery. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent quad, nothing too memorable. Pours a clearish Amber with a thin tan head. Smells of plums. Taste is more plumbs, with a bit of vanilla, and an average finish. Had in the bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Murky copper with a thick tan head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Lots of plums and some raisins as well. Flavor is very sweet with lots of dark fruits and tons of caramel malts. Surprisingly light and thin bodied for nearly 11%. Really sweet and kind of nice.

Bottle bought by a colleague who recently visited Houston. (thanks Wolff)
Dark amber with a small head. Nothing special with this one. Dryish with dried fruit, some nuts and caramel. Warming alcohol in the finish.

@ Gyllenbock 14-12-13: ganska snäll doft men lite het. Smaken är torr, kola, nötter. Ok men inget mer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
C&C bottle from HV WF. Pours a light bronze color with a quickly dissolving head but active carbonation. Typical quad aroma with some sweeter dark fruits, prunes and malts. Flavor is a little disjointed; resembles a quad but a little too boozey and spicy. Okay.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the corked caged 650 ml bottle which was bottled on 8/13/2014. Dark amber-red pour with modest tan head. Sweet Belgian malts and black licorice nose. Slight boozy quality. Medium body. The taste has the same malt and licorice flavors with a biting bitterness at the finish. Not bad now but might have been better after cellaring.
