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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
750mL bottle, pours a dark mahogany with a tiny head. Nose is intense, with loads of rum barrels, alcohol, and brown sugar. Flavour is cloyingly sweet, perfumey and alcoholic, with rum barrels, perfumey floral notes and brown sugar. A massive diabetes bomb - way too sweet. Barely drinkable. Fun to try, but that’s it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Deep, muddy purple-brown. Very little head, just some large tan water-bubbles. Sweet aroma. Red grape, apricot, vanilla, funky rum, maple syrup, old oranges, strawberry, alcohol. The flavor’s maltier than expected. Milk chocolate meets all the other stuff: vanilla, toffee, caramel, red grape, maple, a touch of toast, a hint of banana. Alcohol flavor is big. Sweet vanilla-and-oak finish. Medium-full, syrupy body. A little Sweet overall, but I like what the rum adds here.

Nice malty smell. Taste is way too sweet and boozy. Not a fan of this at all. Medium body with low carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Pours deep brown with a frothy mocha topping. Lots of bready malts in this one, meaty caramel, toffee, rich fruits. Full bodied, a little syrupy, with fine carbonation. Sugary and bready on the finish with some liquefied fruits. Somewhat tasty but just way too sweet.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
