2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2011 Dark orange and slightly murky. Pours with a decent head, with a strong, wafting nose of straw, cherries, burnt malts, plum, cinnamon, a symphony of various spices, and an undertone resembling most Belgian quadrupels. Citric acidity of grapefruit and orange peel, pineapple, pine and dark fruit from the hops, and a nice pleasent orange bite in the middle, before it settles out into a wood and grapefruit flavored finish. Needs a bit more holding up the hops, though.

Pours a dark brown with a big head that dies quickly. A good nose of spices and alcohol. I smell allspice, cinnnamon, and ginger. Flavor is tame for such a big beer. The spices and the alcohol are hidden well. Not too impressed as it doesn't even warm the stomach and the spices are so in the background that it is hard to distinguish them.

Old notes. Clear amber no head. Aroma muted. Light caramel, bready. Flavor is all caramel, through and through, light alcohol and nothing else. Sticky sweet mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 2006 bottle, possibly spoiled. Malty aroma, a tiny bit of dark fruit and something very chemical, diacetyl maybe? Tasted the same as it smelled with a very metallic taste lasting on the tongue. Medium body with low carbonation.
