Pours out a clear, deep copper with a small, short-lasting white head. Sweet, fruity nose, with a bit of wood. First taste is a bit cloying... only somewhat malty, and sweetish. Aftertaste is pure alcohol and spritziness. The palatte should be chewier for the gravity. A little disapointed for such a big bear.

Transfer from BA review on 11-6-12-
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a hazy ruby/mahogany color with a small white head. The head faded relatively fast to leave a lighter amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma was heaviest of a dark fruit smell mixed with some brown sugar. Mixed with these sweeter aromas is a light yeasty smell as well as some yeasty notes.
Taste – The taste starts out of the dark fruits that were detected in the nose. A cherry and raisin flavor greet the tongue with a light hint of some fig. The fig and cherry continually get stronger as the taste advances. While this occurs some flavors of yeast and a light spicy flavor come to the tongue. In the end a light alcohol flavor comes to the tongue as well, and mixes with the rest to leave a fruity and warming feel on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body is silky and smooth with a carbonation level that is rather average. The body and carbonation are quite nice for the fruity flavors. With the brew sliding through the mouth with all the nice flavors and the warming tastes it keeps any one flavor from becoming too overpowering and unbalancing.
Overall – A very nice “American” Quad. It has a nice fruity flavor mixed with a great feel and a very nice warming taste. Tasty and well worth a try.

Aromas suaves pero agradables. Notas frutales, principalmente frutos rojos, destacando las cerezas y frambuesas.
En cuanto al color, rojizo con notas rubíes, carbonatacion baja, cuerpo medio, corona de espuma media de nula retención.
En boca dulce, frutal y finalmente algo de levadura.
Al paladar, es muy fácil de beber a pesar de su fuerza alcohólica. Las notas frutales son muy evidentes, principalmente a berrys. El dulzor es persistente como lo dicta el estilo. Al final un suave sabor a levadura se percibe en boca.
En resumen una buena cerveza, fácil de beber y no tan compleja como se esperaría. El dulzor y sabores frutales muy agradables, y de un final de corta duración.

Bottle pour. Clear brownish red with dirty white head. Caramel, toffee, alcohol, and rich fruit aroma. Strong alcohol taste that takes away from many of the other, much lighter, flavors of the beer.

Bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a clear medium brown, with a medium khaki head that slowly fades and leaves good lacing. Nose is caramel and toffee, with a hint of dark fruit. Taste is caramel and Kandi sugar, with a little booziness at the end. Mouth feel is creamy and the finish is long, with the caramel persisting. Very nice.
