3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An yeasty nose like a fresh loaf of bread, almost too much. Pours a deep amber with a loose cream colored head. Deep flavor of caramel and yeast and some subtle fruits. A little too rich and I think the alcohol comes on too strong. Next time I will chill it more I served it about 60F.

Fair, off white head. Very fruity, raisiny aroma. Strong flavor, hoppier than a typical quadrupel. Not very much carbonation, slightly bitter aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy copper with a small off white head. Aroma of sugar, caramel, orange peel, coriander, clove, some cherry funk. Taste is sugar, malt, clove, banana, maybe a little toffee and yeast. Great carbonation and mouthfeel. This beer is sweet and a little off balance with the spices. Finishes with a small bitter. Alcohol is very well hidden for 10%. Not bad but average for a quad.

Poured from a bottle to a trappist glass. Nice ruby red body. Initial aromas of earthy and citrus notes. Can’t taste much because it’s so strong.
