3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I found zero offensive about this beer as others have. It poured a deep brown with a small tannish head. Aroma was faint of malty yeast and watered down dried dark fruit. Tasted the same with a faint hint of chocolate.Palate watery. ABV not even there, Went down quick and easy. Paid $2.99 for a 550mml bottle on sale. It was just a pretty boring offering.
Didn’t notice until I had read other ratings that this bottle is numbered. Mine was 195/10000.
