Overall good, but my complaint would be that it is too syrupy which can make it somewhat cloying as it warms. Serving: Bottle

Cloudy reddish. Not a big nose. A little malty caramel. Taste is lots of dark fruit & caramel. A little coffee in the finish. No noticeable alcohol. Smooth with light carbonation. Great beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a somewhat dark amber/caramel colored body with a half finger off-white head that dies within about fifteen seconds, very little lacing spider webbing around the glass.
The smell had a sweet combination of apple, cloves, cherries are there but seem really light, a little bit of some spice.
The taste was mainly sweet through the previously mentioned flavors, sweet apple aftertaste, dry spicy finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a medium to almost heavy - hmmm.... actually probably closer to medium, but not sessionable as ABV is somewhat felt.
Overall, I’d say this is a pretty good quad, but I think there’s other quads I’d rather have before this.

Pretty nice dark Belgian. Some fruity prune and raisin with a big Belgian floral yeast aroma. A touch of smoke as well. Light musk. Pours cloudy dark with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sweetness. Medium to thick palate. Soft carbonation. Bottle.

I can't remember what beer I'm rating. Playing beer pong. Words words words words... 75 characters. Use the numbers, Allen. Use the rating numbers, not the written description.

Bottle - Plum, cherry, raisin and brown sugar. Clear dark amber with a thin brown head. Sweet dark fruit, brown sugar and a bit of booze. Nice fruity and balanced.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of sweet malt, brown sugar, cherry, currant, nuts, alcohol. Pours beautiful ruby red with a thick, creamy head that leaves artistic lacing. Nice balance of medium sweetness, light bitter, light sour, rather dry for a quad. Very smooth and easy to drink, rich and light at the same time. A good rendition of the style and worth repeating.

Bottle @ The No Creepy Country Ticks Tasting, courtesy of me. Thnx to Secret Santa 2013 for sending me this! Pours a slightly murky light brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma has a lot of fruity yeast esters, some dusty malts and is quite boozy. Flavor is very sweet and fruity, some alcohol and molasses. Yeast is present, suiting the style in a good way. Yet it lacks some complexity but is still nice to drink and very enjoyable. Quite nice!
