3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange color. A bit of a raisin-esque aroma. First flavor notes are citrus and spice and then vanilla before the alcohol and some slickness arrive. I also do detect some of the coconut that is mentioned on the label too.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours clear copper with a foamy off-white head. Smell is clean and rather floral. Caramel backbone. Full bodied. Flavor is yeast/spice, banana ester, caramel, kandi, and some medium dark fruit. This is a very clean and pleasing drink. Heat may be present, but itís not getting in the way of anything. Sort of like adding to the yeast/spice. The finish is nearly dry. This stuff is way too drinkable.

Bottle; poured a dark caramel color with a smallish sized head. Aroma of candy sugar, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor was a bit mild in flavor, but fit the profile. Alcohol was really present, especially in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber color with a finger of off-white head. Bread and toasted malt aromas along with lots of dark fruit and banana. A nice raisin sweetness and some hints of spice. The flavor has a lot of toffee, bread, and caramel to go with the banana and raisin. The spice notes on the palate are a bit more pronounced than on the nose, mostly nutmeg and clove. Nice full body on this.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Valley Farm. Sweet yeast nose. Some cloves and banana. Somewhat sweet up front. Some roastiness as well. A little dark fruit and alcohol as well. Seems to have low carbonation. Easy to drink. Certainly not the most flavorful quad, but still not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Rating #1. Hazy brown pour with a beige head. Dark, dry fruit aroma, raisins. Big flavor, more dark fruits, itís like alcohol soaked raisins, but in a good way. Tasty quad for sure. (2468)
