Dark reddish brown, virtually no head even with a somewhat violent pour. Aroma is berry, plum, raisin, dust, yeast, sweet malt, light alcohol. Full bodied, sweet, alcohol hidden well but is present in the finish. Nice bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Consumed at home in the company of Loz, Craig, Stella & Kids plus Jackie & Simon 02.08.13 A little meaty on the nose, quite hefty punch, alcohol reasonably well hidden. Big beer massive flavours, hugely malty but the alcohol lingers a bit now I am into it a bit more. Molasses, treacle, lots there but not totally my thing. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
7/2/13. 750mL bottle from Grassroots. Deep brown amber ruby pour with almost no head, small khaki for what is there. Big floaties if you get too deep in the bottle. Booze, yeasty, dark fruits, bitter roast, leather, and tannins in the aroma and flavor. A little rough. Maybe a little time would help.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Poured very dark brown with almost no head; looks like flat cola. Aroma is full of chocolate and spice. Flavor is bright fruit, chocolate, cola. Quite sweet and malty. My wife: tastes like a spiced rum and coke. And she’s right. Quite boozy, slightly sour. Almost uncarbonated. Really good to sip, then it becomes too cloying.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home picked up at some cheap liquor store in Fort Collins. Pours a moderately clear brown appearance with little head. Dark fruity, black cherry, berry, rich dark chocolate, caramelized malty aroma. Very rich, moderately boozy, syrupy cola, caramel, burnt sugar, plum, dark fruity flavor with a fairly cloying finish. Carbonation is unbelievably low. Pretty fun to drink but really takes everything that is overdone in most Quads and then double times that.
