3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Date is the dominant flavor. Candy fruitiness, like figs, strawberry jam. Chocolate, caramel. Full bodied. Sugary sweet and full-bodied. I would like it more if the mouthfeel was silky and creamy. Alcohol bitterness is there, though hidden behind sugar and fruitiness. My personal preference is for lighter beers, rarely higher than 8%, so my rating low mainly for that reason. For the style, I think itís well balanced, though perhaps the carbonation can be increased for that smooth silky texture. If you like quads, this would likely be a good choice ... f youíre not a fan, like me, then I doubt this will win you over.

Bottle. Musty, yeasty, and slightly citrus aroma. Sweet taste with caramel, dark fruit, and a bitter boozy bite in the finish. This is nice.

750 mL bottle. Nice auburn colour with a solid tan head. Mostly yeast in the nose, but the flavour is surprisingly big and complex. Fruit cake up front, a bit of booze in the finish. Honey smooth. Nice find!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I liked it but not the best quad. Toffee, molasses, caramel and bready notes. Light spice and floral notes. Plently of sugary and candy notes that make it a bit too sweet for my liking. Prunes, raisins, cherries, plums and brown sugar. Nice boozy finish with a warmth and lingering light bitterness

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml corked bottle pours amber in color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and dark pitted fruits with some hints of yeast. Taste is a fruity and caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness and a dry yeasty finish. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, this is a tasty brew that is nicely balanced and quite tasty. Recommended.

Poured from the four pack of bottles, smells like xmas, dark brown with some orange glowing on the sides, foamy fat white collar. Iím all about education so I looked up this Ole Anderson character they spoke of in the commercial description, turns out he was a professional wrestler in the 80ís, this must have been his favorite beer, canít blame him for that, itís great. I donít care if youíre Ole Anderson or Anderson Cooper, there is no way you are making it to your 6th glass of this, Itís strong!
