ClassyBeagle (374) - USA - DEC 19, 2013
FROM NOTES: October 29, ’13. From a 651 ml. capped and waxed bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. A: Burnt toast aroma and undeniable burnt brown sugar notes. A bit of dark fruits in the finish, but nowhere near as strong as I want it to be. A: Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Very little "bubble show" at all. T: Sweet figs and some dark roasty notes with alcohol present but not overwhelming. The sweetness is the main event, with the candied sugars constantly reaffirming their presence. I wish there was a little more complexity here.... P: The mouth feel is light of medium with an alcohol warmth present, carbonation is low with a light acidic finish. O: I would like to see the yeast take a stronger stance in the taste, and a little more complexity in the flavor, but overall, this is a decent quad.

Not bad. Good aroma and flavors of bread pudding, Belgian yeast, caramelized sugar with some molasses. Deep brown color and weighty, full palate.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is dark fruits, wood, booze. Medium mouth, very boozy, fig, caramel, candy sugar malt, good.

Fruity yeasty aroma. Pours almost opaque caramel brown with a thick light tan head that fizzles away pretty quickly. Sweet. Fruity. Smooth. Boozy. Really nice.

Dark brownish reddish with a small beige head. Sweet aroma of dark fruit and sweet malts. Very sweet taste; fig, caramelized sugar, and syrupy sweet malts. Medium-full bodied, smooth.

We have a fig tree in our yard that produced some very tasty fruit this year. Couldn’t keep up with eating them so tried infusing some vodka. Turned out nasty, like NASTY. Fortunately the folks at BBB seem to know their way around figs better than i do. Fig in the aroma and taste along with date, plum and caramelized sugar.

mar (5064) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Deep brown/amber with a cream/khaki head. Nose is rich malts, toffee, fig, yeast, light spice. Great palate, hearty malts, hint of spice, fig all over the place, lightly sweet finish

This poured a darker red color with a white head. Aroma was of dark fruit and caramel. Flavor similar, too bland and sweet.

JStax (4105) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Waxed 22 ounce bottle thanks to Errl. Poured into a La Trappe chalice. Pours a clear brown with a beige head of foam that dissipates down to a film pretty quickly. The aroma is sweet and mildly earthy and fruity. I get a subtle spice in there as well. Fairly sweet beer, kind of like brown sugar. Big body. Low carbonation. Pretty good beer overall.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2014
This beer pours a dark mahogany color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit and yeast. Full-bodied and slightly syrupy with flavors of caramel malt, figs and earthy yeast. The finish is sweet with a brown sugar and plum aftertaste. Decent overall.

22 oz purple wax bottle. Pours amber with a thin head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, and fruit. Very fruity quad, with a bit of vegetal and green olive at the end, not altogether unpleasant but not great. Lots of alcohol in the finish.
