3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Multiple tastings. Pours a thin beige head, over dark amber (SRM 15) body......nose is light Bourbon, cocoa, chocolate, light vanilla, dried fruit tones, minimal hops.....tastes of Bourbon, raisin, plum, light vanilla, brown sugar, hints of allspice, finishes with moderate bitterness.....mouth feel, light of medium body, alcohol warmth present, minimal acidity. This is an American Abt/Quad, but is delicately balanced, with the whiskey barrel adding nuances without dominating, but layering in where often various spice tones occur. BJCP 8/3/15/4/8

Sampled at ESBLS. Dark brown with a creamy beige head that does not fall. This beer is fruity and pleasant, especially for the ABV. Creamy and malty with all kinds of fruit. Dark fruit, plums. Interesting wood. A little heat but just a little. Amazingly easy to drink.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is by far the best beer I have ever had. The subtle hints of oak and cherry make this a very smooth beer. It’s not hoppy and in my experience most beverages with this high of alcohol content, the alcohol tends to be overbearing but not with False Summit. Extraordinary beer! I do wish we could get it in the Seattle area.

2013 bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with a large foamy tan head that lingers. Huge aroma, sweet and woody, of brown sugar, malt, caramel, oak, bourbon, dark fruits. Big taste, woody bourbon, almost sour dark fruits, malt, caramel. Lingering bourbon and sour cherries that finishes a little watery. Very interesting quad, well-balanced.

750ml next to Boulevard BBQ and River North B’Side. This was the winner. Sweet dark fruit with a great backing of oak and bourbon character. Very smooth and distinctive with a little hint of tart pucker at the back end. Wonderful beer.
