Growler shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt.
The beer is light orange with ample carbonation / effervescence. Atop the beer sits a quarter inch of white, fizzy head. The aroma brings sweet malt, fruity esters, alcohol. Sweet throughout. This is more of a Belgian strong ale than a quad, in my opinion. Decent flavor, but a bit hot and sweet for my liking. Eh..

At first this comes off like a quad but the finish is strange. Citrusy. Some florals but a little bit of a mess. Amber pour. Clash of ingredients. Tap.

Serving: Draft at Leeburg Brewing Company. Hazy, reddish pour with a thin off white ring for a head. Sweet, macerated fruit in the nose. Very sweet with lots of raisin notes on the tongue. Lacks character and is a little one dimensional. Full bodied with a sweet finish.

On tap at the brewery. Taster poured into plastic cup. Hazy amber with a finger of frothy head. Hard to assess lacing or retention. Aromas are honey, warm banana, caramel, raisin, and dates. Taste is brown sugar, yeasty, sweetness then late mild bitterness. Moderate carbonation, more than I like for the style. Dry finish.

Tap. Every time Iíve had this, itís just been OK. I really wanted this to somehow change, but oh well. Light murky brown orange. Bubblegum, toffee, dark grapes, and slight sweetness both for flavor and aromas. Bit thin, and a little slick.

Pizzeria Paradiso, Georgetown tap ($6): Pours a mahogany color with a beige head. Aroma is dark fruit, dried fruit, a bit of Danzig, some booze, and yeast. Taste is predictable. Somewhat sweet, but not cloyingly. Alcohol is generally well covered. Doesnít force sipping. Some degree of complexity, but isnít really crafted to perfection. I was unimpressed for this did not go where eagles dare.

Served in a DC Brau cervoise. Thanks, Matt. Nose has a good dose of dark fruit. Flavor is fairly fruity with some honey. Not too much yeast. Medium body. Too sweet for me.

Draft at Novemberfest at Rustico last weekend. Poured a murky light brown color with a light off-white head. Aroma was sweet dried fruit notes, caramel, candi sugar, some spice character. Flavor was dried fruits, caramel, some alcohol is certainly in there - but itís a lot more mellow than the 10.5% woudl suggest. Relatively enjoyable.
