Hazy amber-brown with thin dust-yellow-colored head, fine, dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is caramel, slight tart (maybe a bit of lactic) and musty, metallic herbs. Body is medium, syrupy, but with a strong, burning, lingering, prickly carbonation that crests and falls like a nice long Poisson distribution. Flavor is vinous caramel and light butterscotch, booze. Kind of a boring, slightly cloying sweetness. Considerable neutral bitterness, but the heat from the alcohol overtakes this as the drink warms in the glass. Overall, an interesting quad. I was very excited that the aroma might indicate a sour or more attenuated/dry beverage; this was not the case. I think the barrel aging contributes much to the interesting character of the beer; however, I can’t help but wonder if a smaller beer would have been better, maybe with fresher hops (perhaps importing this has taken its toll) and less crystal malt.

Kitöltéskor nulla hab képződik a kólaszínű testen, aromáinak gerincét az édes vörösboros, majd idővel az egyre szárazabb, tölgyfás illatok alkotják. Voltaképpen szénsav nélküli teste üvöltően édes, mazsolás, égetett cukros, karamellás, fűszeres. Remekül élteti az illatánál kirajzolódott boros benyomásokat, ami vizuális síkon a pohár falán hagyott olajos lenyomat formájában ölt testet. Az édesség mértéke és az alkohol foka semmi esetre sem nevezhető visszafogottnak, így az egyes komponensek bár figyelemre méltóan egyediek, a keret, melyben kiteljesednek, harsánysága által kevésbé ad lehetőséget elmélyült tanulmányozásukra.

Bottle @ home, thanks to Lukaduke for sending! Pours a deep orangish red appearance with a lasting, foamy, dark brown head. Really complex nose. Cinnamon, plums, prunes, red grapes, apples, dark chocolate, and caramel in the the nose. The spicy cinnamon booze in the nose comes off like a mild form of Goldschläger. Medium body. There is some note of the booze but it’s not too strong. Kind of tastes like a tannic red wine that has some additional brown sugar and toffee. A fair amount of dark fruits as well as leather. The carbonation is a little dull. Some light oxidation. A little bit of residual sugar in the mouth after the finish. Damn, this is fine beer.

Pours deep ruby with a thin head. By far the closest thing to port I’ve ever had in a beer. Interesting and tasty, though certainly not a traditional quad.

Appearance: Dark ruby red with hardly a head Aroma: port, dry sherry, dates, prunes and red berries Taste: Follows the Aroma, very Sherry like but so balanced were the sweet fruityness with a few sour trones and with some nice oak tones in the finish. medium body and carbonation is allmost nonexistant. This is very good, allthough not for everyone and so so looking. Quite Port like but quite amazing. How the balanced while keeping a nice complexity.

Bottled. Pours hazy amber with an average off-white head. Aroma with notes of dark dried fruits, red grapes, molasses, wood, and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with bitter notes and some alcohol Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice Barley.
