4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown with plum color hue, nice dense and lacy head. Great nose with big belgian candy and dark rock fruits behind yeasty spice and earth esters. Taste is bold and flavorful, lots of delicious candy sweetness thats not overdone, with notes of cocoa, molasses. Full bodied with moderate to carbonation. In all, i really dug this beer, and as a quad it hits all the typical notes but with great emphasis and flavor. For whatever reason the flavors and aromas remind me of late fall - lots of spice and caramel character, as well as warmth.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours out a dark brown and makes a thin tan head with a bit of lacing. Perhaps a bit too much of a cola taste for me, but is sweet and malty with very little aroma. For this expense and build up, I expected much more.

A decent fruit quad, tasty but not too interesting. Pours a beautiful deep red with a thin tan head. Smells of cherries and caramel. Lots of Apple and cherry in the taste, with some caramel in the finish. Had in the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark reddish brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose initially comes through with some caramel notes, but mellows out to some dark fruits. Taste is a bit sweet and definitely has that dark fruity element to it. Heavy and substantive, yet smooth mouthfeel.
