Pours murcky brown lightly carbonated with the tan head. Real big aroma of caramel and sweet toffee sugars. Flavor has hint of banana and bigger sweet sugars and toffe and more caramel in the flavors. Finishes real rich and a little cloying but ok for style.

Candy sugar malty aroma and flavor. Malty and slight sugary but surprisingly light palate for the big Brew. Caramelized malt and Belgian candy sugar dominate, but flavorful quad. Maybe a bit too sweet to drink too much, but above average quad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish, semi-transparent body, white head, not much retention or lacing. Nice bready dried fruit and caramel aroma, some booze. Taste is sweet, a bit of cola and cocoa in addition to dried fruit and bread. A bit of a thinner palate. Not the best quad, but decent.

Pours a caramel from a bottle, decent off-white head. Aroma of candi sugar, vanilla, boozy bourbon caramel. Flavor similar, maybe some cherry, lots of good Belgian flavor from the malt and yeast. Slightly boozy finish, but doesn’t burn. Very good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the source. Really impressive brewery and tap room. Consumed in 10 oz pour with willyP and wanderkate. Beautiful coppery color with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma gives a sweet impression with some dark fruits. Deep flavor profile on the initial sip. The traditional plum and raisin notes are there along with a healthy dose of sugars. Balance is pretty solid as the sweetness doesn’t overwhelm. Little bit of a drop off towards the end but beginning and middle rival other Belgian quads. Preach on, Avery. Preach on.

Bomber shared by Tim...thanks buddy! Hazy brown pour with minimal head. Strong sweet dark fruit aroma. Taste is not as sweet as I hoped. Still really good.
