Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2013
500ml bottle from Binny’s Plainfield, #9889/10000. Pours a deep brown colored body with a nice ruby hue and a finger-width, creamy and frothy, darker tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is bready and toasty malts with a good amount of yeast spice, dark fruits, some caramel, booze, a touch of clove, and hints of chocolate. Flavor is similar. Nice yeasty spice throughout with a bready, somewhat toasty, lightly sweetened malt backing. Light caramels, brown sugar, and nuts with some dark fruits, hints of clove, and just a touch of chocolate. Finishes pretty clean and moderately bitter with some earth, yeasty spice, a slight booze note, and barely a hint of roast. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid quad. Yeasty and fairly dry while staying nicely balanced with a toasty, bready malt backing and a good amount of dark fruits. Nice beer.

Poured from bottle, pours a murky brown with an off white head, aroma is very sweet with lots of dark fruit and caramel coming through, the flavor has a very sweet candy sugar front end with a malty finish, kind of a thin mouthfeel.

Pours a nice dark hazy reddish-brown with a light tan head. Aroma is malty but very "hot" smelling from the alcohol. Flavor matches with a bit of caramel and butterscotch. I’d like to try this again after is has been aged.

RedSox2004 (1384) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Medium brown with a small head and moderate lace. Aromas of dark fruits with a hint of alcohol coming through at the end. Flavors of dark fruits - plums, figs, cherries. Medium body and carbonation, smooth mouthfeel (but a bit of alcohol burn) and a lingering sweetness, almost tart, in the finish.

jkwood04 (4367) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2014
500ml bottle in a teku. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some darker and sweeter malts with caramel and some toffee, a lot of raisins and dark fruits, and some light bitterness. Flavor the same with a decent blend, but the alcohol isn’t hidden too well. Average to smoother texture. A pretty good quad but not the best.

Pours a rich brown color with a very thin off white head. Smells a bit of chocolate, dates and caramel. Pretty great smell. Taste is a bit sweet with some of that chocolate date like flavor coming through. Good stuff

curepute (140) - New York, USA - APR 20, 2014
Very dark amber brown with tiny lacing. Has the aroma of a brewery, malty with molasses, ginger bread. Thankfully the taste is not like that. Roasted malts, not too sweet for a quad. Finishes fairly bitter. More like a mild black IPA.
