bomber shared nice quad aroma of very sweet malts and dark fruits. medium to heavy body with alcohol nicely hidden throughout. the dark fruits such as cherries and more pronounced plums come through in a big way and the alcohol warmth on the end makes this a very good quad. only drawback it is a little think in the body but not really a deterrent.

Very rich flavour, smells boozy but doesn’t taste that way. Gently carbonated, playing to drink.

(Bottle) Dark, brownish red body with a medium, quickly light brown head. Aroma is fruity, vinous, wood and whiskey; sweet and strong alcohol. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Sweet, mild tartness (pomegranate/grape/cherry), molasses, light wood. Would like it even more if a bit less sweet, but very good nonetheless--I like the combinations going on.

22 ounce bottle, label says 12.1% ABV, best after 04/22/15. Served in a DFH Signature Glass, the beer pours a hazy reddish/brown color with about a half inch light tan head that stayed around for a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like dark fruit, molasses, pomegranate, oak and some rye whiskey. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of red grapes/wine and bready malt. The booziness seems to be well hidden in this, it sure doesn’t taste like it’s 12%. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s coating and smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good Quad, I wouldn’t mind picking up another bottle if I came across one again.

22 oz bottle, Best After 04/22/15, just now getting around to it- Pours dark ruby red with a light tan head that reduces. Aroma is oak, bourbon, dark fruits, musty grapes, very nice. The taste is oak, vanilla, dark fruits, i’d say cherry, but could be pomegranate, light chocolate, it reminds me of the Firestone Walker Anniversary beers, that toasted coconut flavor that mingles with the barrel, alcohol is noticeable, leaving a warming feeling. Yum!!

Pours a nice merkey brown,cola color. A very nice thin tan head that disappears quickly. The aroma hits you as soon as you open the bottle. A toasty malt. Taste is dark fruit, raisins, yes you can taste pomegranate. A hint of rye whisky. This is very good!!
