4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Sprout’s: Upon pour, a gigantic formation of thick foamy head blew up while a dark brownish mahogany color liquid graced my Trappist glass. Aroma is mild with only minor traces of Belgian yeast and sweet syrupy malts, other than that the smell is very tame. However, the drink makes up for the lack of aroma by delivering a heavy dosage of sweet malts balanced out with a touch of spicy yeast. Alcohol is hidden like a needle in a hay stack while the palate in this quadrupel is probably one of the smoothest I have drank. I really wish I had more to say but I don’t.

Red fruits some caramel and candy sugar. Nice caramel. Taste some alcohol rather spicy. Light licorice and molasses. Finish is pretty warm both because of alcohol and spices.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a dark brown color with amber highlights and a big khaki head that has fair retention. The aroma is rich with complex dark fruits; I get raisins, dates, plums, molasses and cola. The taste is similar to the nose, find the cola-like flavors to be very forward, with mixed fruits filling in the sides and back. Cloves are barely noticeable but for the numbing effect they have on my tongue. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and a bit dry with some lingering sweet fruits. Overall: OK, I know that I’m homering this, but wow is it good.
