UPDATED: FEB 27, 2008 Courtesy of BBB63
Bottle: The aroma consists of plums, raisins, yeast, grapes, and faint alcohol. It pours a cloudy dull orange with a small off-white head. The flavor starts with plum, yeast, faint grape, and caramel. There is some faint chocolate in the background. There is some faint alcohol in the finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

Thanks for sharing a bottle, iowaherkeye. The murky dark copper and brown body is topped with a khaki head. The aroma was pears and cinnamon. There was also some earthy sweat and mushrooms. The taste was strong with the candi sugar and pear core. A rich, creamy cody makes this smooth with a nice cinnamon character throughout. A nice quad.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mildly dark with a bit too much head. Fruity taste -- maybe some citrus and a bit of sweetness. Heavy alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Copper color. Thin off-white head. Aroma of raisin, malt. Flavor is a bit tart. Like an apple juice. A little off balance, but a decent Quad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thanks to Grant. Tannish-brown, moderate, and quickly dissipating head. Only like 20 people have rated this! (WTF??) Floral, apples, caramel. Moderate mouthfeel, a bit of a sticky finish.

Atlanta Ale meeting. This one is funky, with apple juice as the predominent taste, and cloves, toasted caramel, candy brown sugar, fruit, above average mouthfeel. Lacing. High alcohol.Drinkable but not my go to quad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet maty with notes of over ripe fruits and spices as well as lighter notes of yeast. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of malt, caramel, spices, and yeast - especially cloves. Thanks Storm for sharing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep, cloudy orange-brown. Minimal head. Light caramelly aroma, fairly spicy and doughy. Quite thick, sweet body with some vanilla notes and a lemony citrusness. Very roasty, moderately bitter finish. Decent but surprisingly uninspiring.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOTTLE: Beautiful pour with lots of bubbles! Ok, i’ll try to be a bit more technical... dark appearance with beige head rises from the bottom of the pour. Effervescence continues long after the pour while head quickly dissipates. Aroma instantly makes me think of strong belgium ales with an underlying hint of the strong alcohol content beneath. Full body mouthfeel with lots of sugary sweetness containing and yet complimenting the strong abv. I prefer the tripel but this is probably the best Blvd to date.
