3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent bright copper amber with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel light fruits and a touch of biscuity malts. Body starts with good fullness and honeydew fruity character along with some mild bitterness before a semi-dry warming finish. Could use a more dominant Belgian yeasty flavor, but still a good attempt at the style.

Caramely malt and fruit ester,little hints of burnt brown sugar,taste is sugary malt ,with red sucker sweetness little bit of marachino cherry fruit ester,a mild swell of alcohol, and hop bitterness in the finish. I don’t know if its a Belgian Quad,but it a wonderful glass of Wisconsin brew

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a beautiful mahogany with a slight but creamy head. Smells very yeasty and phenolic, of pears and raisins, brown sugar and roasted malts. Has caramel flavors upfront and in the finish but in between tastes big, hoppy, and sweet. This is a barley wine, though the label doesn’t indicate it. With a deep malt profile, spicy yeast, and plenty of hop bitterness it packs quite the punch. Has a very sticky mouthfeel and the alcohol has gone straight to my head. II may have to go sit down. A zany and tasty offering from Ale Asylum.

Poured a slightly hazed deep amber with a small off-white head. Yeasty phenolic notes hit the nose big and first. Then some browned fruits, sugar and bubblegum. Mildly sweet that dries for the finish. Dry caramel. Dull finish/mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

From the bottle, pours a clear crimson red with a thin bubbly white head. Some fruits, apples, caramel make up the aroma. Taste is what is expected form the aroma, flavors of caramel malt, a slightly spiced and bitter finish, with a smooth aftertaste. This is a pretty good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours copper red with a fizzy, quckly dissapating head. Smells of yeast, a little spice and dough. Lots of sweet malt in the taste, balanced by yeast and a warm alcohol finish. The malt just sits on the back of the tongue on this one. Mouthfeel is a lot richer and creamier than I expected. A very pleasant brew.

Opaque orange with a thin off-white quickly fading head. Aroma of Belgian Yeast, dark fruits, sweet and toasted malts. Taste of sugar, toasted malt, fruit, mild citrus and spices. Not too much alcohol on the palate but noticeable warming effects afterwards. I haven’t had a whole lot of this style, but this was pretty good as far as beers go.
