2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks Scott for the share! Aroma is nice, nothing special. Flavor is sweet and unfortunately lacking balance. Also getting a moderate amount of metallic off-flavor. Interesting beer concept, but lacks balance overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, from Michael. 11.7%? Holy crap. Itíd be nice to have that detail on the label. Indeed, itís fig jam, some chocolate up front. Kind of like a fig newton. Nice dark fruit, mild nuttiness. Moderate-plus sweet taste, but not too sweet, mild dry finish. Lighter bitterness. Mild bit of warmth but no burn nor bite that you might expect for that ABV. Medium to bigger body. Mild slick texture. Very light carbonation. Pretty much flat really, but Iím not too bothered. It works. Mild chewiness to the texture, nice mild creaminess. Pours a hazy brown color, with virtually no head. Decent american quad. Wouldnít pass as a competitor for an authentic belgian quad, but fun and tasty nonetheless. And hides ABV great, if that 11.7 is right. Iím guessing thereís some batch variation on this. Pretty solid to enjoy with my modified Skyline Chili, like a 3.5. A touch sweet on itís own, though. Mild bite and heat becomes noticeable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a big beer. Wonderful bready and malty aroma with hints of sugar and fig. Dark ruby red pour with a thin head. Taste is spectacular, loads of candi sugar and dark friut. Very boozy with a slight fig taste. This is a sipping beer. Full bodied to the max. Overall, this beer suprised me, I was not expecting such a delicious beer after reading the reviews but that is why you donít judge a beer by itís cover. Very big beer, should probably only drink one but well worth it. Will get again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Laundry. Pours reddish amber with a pretty beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor with some candi sugar and lots of fig. The sugar melts to bitter at the finish.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle. Pours dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma is of figs, booze, and sugar. Definitely smells boozy. Taste is huge on the booze. After you get past the initial booze bite, there is lots of fig, sugar, and dark fruit. So very harsh on the booze. If you want to get drunk, thisíll do it. Hard to drink. Not a very pleasant experience.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out of the 12 oz bottle as a nice garnet or ruby with a bit of off-white head. Malt, brown sugar and dark fruit and alcohol aroma, not overly impressive but indicative of the style anyway. A relatively middling quad, which is not to say itís bad; itís merely another drinkable Belgian.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark reddish black pour with half inch dense brownish head. Scent of dark fruit and belgian yeast: very rich, slightly sweet fig, plum, powdery banana esters and clove. Softer carbonation, tingly mouthfeel, finish is boozy and wine-like, leaving the teeth dry. Flavors of bitter pepper, banana, hearty grain, really boozy, bit of clove, some sweet fig. Boozy quad, a little harsh/bitter, could be more rich.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark ruby with a foamy off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is booze and fig. Flavor is slightly tart fig and some alcohol. Pretty good if not very complex/hearty for a quad.
