Really sweet and rummy, kinda like drinking a rum, you can tell its a quad from some of the estery flavors but it’s not really my thing.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark red-brown with minimal head and no lacing.
Feel: Full, slick, sticky and syrupy.
Too much like a medicinal syrup. Disappointing.

Pours a deep brown from the bottle with little to no head or lace. Aroma of big sweetness and spice, hint of apple, light dark fruit notes. Taste is big on the sweetness, rum is light, except for the phenol alcohol, big fruitiness, sweet, big boozy burn. Wow, definitely a plethora as the bottle implies.

750mL bottle pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up brown sugar coated prunes and dates and figs and then it gets into boozy and rum like notes. The taste is similar with a rich mix of prunes, raisins, dates and figs swimming in a brown sugar and molasses sea of sweetness. This then slides into smooth boozy rum sweetness that blends well with the fruity esters that are going on. Overall this is a great tasty sipper but it seems to be something you need to be in the mood for to really enjoy its silky smooth rich sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a dark rich brown in color with a small bit of head that fell right off. Aroma has dark fruit, sweet boozy rum, dark sugars, vanilla, and dried pit fruit. Mouth feel coats with sugars and the carbonation is on the lower side. Flavor is quite the bruiser, heavy dark sugars, molasses, raisins, rum barrels, and plenty of heat.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 Bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours deep reddish brown with a small beige head that quickly dissipates leaving a small trace and some nice looking legs on the glass. Smell is sweet and boozy with sweet dark bread, raisins in rum, cereal, baked pears, alcohol, run & coke, christmas fruitcake and toffee. Taste is heavy sweet, malty and boozy with sweet dark bread, caramel, toffee, raisins in rum, hay and pears. Mouthfeel is sticky sweet, boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and boozy with sweet bread, figs, raisins in rum, cereal, toffee and rum & coke. Extremely hot! Drinks like a strong rum & coke which I guess works.
