marcus (6517) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 18, 2014
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a sweet treacle aroma. There is a rich dark molasses flavor with a hint of pomegranate and lots of whiskey. A great sipper.

Powerful initial aroma, head dissipates very quickly, strong classic quad flavor, nice wood notes, and beautiful mouthfeel.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle:   Burgundy, deep caramel hues, thin to moderate frothy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Big bready aroma, dark pitted fruit, a touch of black cherry.   Big and rich on the tongue, sweet, almost cloying but just shy, bready, dark pitted fruit, a bit musty, some basement.   Interesting example.   Fairly full bodied.   Finishes like it started, perhaps a little anise in there too.   Does seem to have a slight vinous touch on the finish.   Does fall off quick after the finish, soft pinot noir notes linger.   Interesting take on the style.

keepersj12 (2693) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Quite the looker, maroon with a thin white head. Nice aroma of malt and wood. The is sweet with a nice balance, quad like with some Belgium spice. Sticky and rich with a nice warming of the throat. A sipper and best suited for the cold weather to come

maxwelldeux (3668) - Everett, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draught. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a small off-white head on there. Nose has some candy, dark fruit elements, and a bit of whiskey to it. Taste is slightly sweet and slightly fruity, and ends up being remarkably light.

northropfrye (2215) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Dark maroon body with brown head, quickly fading, some lacing. Cola and welches grape juice aroma, bubblegum and vanilla, dried fruit. Awesome dried fruit taste, rich and very malty, without being too sweet. Awesome quad.

DuffMan (6752) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle, shared by heavyleavy at game night. Beautiful deep red-orange with a two-finger thick beige head. Aroma is rich sweet malt and red fruits, spicy and boozy undertones. Sweet palate, toffee malts, dates, ripe banana, dark red fruits (plums?cherries?), with smooth oak coming in late. Finish is warming without being harsh. Superb.
