3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep orange pour with lively carbonation and moderate cream color head. Fruity aromas of banana and raisin with some bready malt notes and hints of spice. A bit more sweet malt in the taste with some fruit and clove undertones. Nicely carbonated with a somewhat dry finish. Slight alcohol warmth on the back end. Pretty nice beer overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle best by November 19, 2016.
Glass: Fiddlehead teku.
Appearance: Odd sort of copper color with reddish hues almost coming off pink with floaties in suspension. The head is dense and light tan, has decent retention.
Aroma: Bready malts dominate, slightly smokey, with medicinal cherry phenols with some spicy phenols to match. Aroma is moderate in strength and doesn’t really entice.
Taste: A bit astringent, toasted malts prominent, with medicinal cherry coming through. Not a fan.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Drinks okay, doesn’t excite and doesn’t suit my palate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From Smokestack Mixed 4 pack Into Blvd’s included tulip glass.
A: Very heady with half glass of tan bubbly foam. Tawny orange hazy body with little visible carbonation. Head persistent. Good sheet lacing.
S: Wine. Tart raisins and yeast mostly. A touch of dry wood.
T: Drier than expected. Very winey sherry-esque flavor. Strong with alcohol. A little yeasty. Warming.
M: Heavy but still crisp with a nice delicate carbonation feel.
O: Not something I can see myself drinking regularly. I’m admittedly inexperienced with the style but still not my cup of tea.

Tastes of fig, molasses, caramel, slight spicing, some wood, touch of alcohol warming but overall hides abv fine. Nice finish not syrupy or sweet. Lovely beer.

Aroma: bread, some banana, malt

Pours a nice dark amber. Aromas of yeasty sweet malts. Flavors of nutty, sweet malts, candi syrup, fruity esters with a dry finish. Good quad!

Shared bomber with my brother. Not my favorite quad. A drinkable beer but there was nothing special or overly pleasing that would bring me back.
