2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Muddy, murky brown. Headless, oily legs. Heavy set savoury fruit nose. Yeasty, bready, burnt toast and vinous, thick, liqueurish stone fruit with just a hint of spice. Soapy, light body. Remarkably light. Sticky, bitter/sweet raisin and sultana finish. Pleasant but bland.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Decent flavour, zero hints of the 10%. Mild peppermint candy nose, roasted malts on the sweet side nose, raisins nose, blueberries nose, plum nose, dark caramel nose has taken over the previously claimed roasted malt nose, nose, fresh nose, good nose. Digging this taste - smooth taste and slightly oily taste, sweet dark caramel taste, brown sugar taste, plum taste and date taste, bitter harshness taste after I dumped in the sludge taste, taste, sort of chocolate taste or whatever taste that taste is that I am tasting taste. Radical, dude. Fucking iPhone keeps spell checking ’taste’ as ’Tate’ and every time it reminds me of former American coffee heiress Sharon Tate. Insert whatever here.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #2300. 500ml brown bottle. Deep brown, rapidly receding tan head. Nose has fruit notes of raisin, cherry also some caramel, cola and chocolate malt. Taste has dark fruit and dark chocolate. Some roast/dark malt and hop bitterness at the end. Light hops in the aftertaste, bit of smooth alcohol and dark fruits. Big body. A well put together quad that drinks easily for it’s strength.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a generous light beige head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark pitted fruits with some candied sugar and hints of yeast and chocolate. Taste is a fruit and chocolate malt sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness and a dry finish. Definite presence of alcohol. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Tasty but not overly complex for a quad. Good enough to sample.
