Bottle. Holy crap what a great brew. I’m not normally a fan of sweet beers but this one does it right. Nose of molasses, leather and candied plums. Taste features cola, molasses, brown sugar and mixed dark pitted fruits. Palate was lush and sticky with too much sugar. This could probably be used to pour on pancakes in place of syrup. Delicious, but will someone please pass the insulin.

2014 vintage bomber bought at Brew-denell 2015 at Brudenell Social Club. Comes in fancy box, accentuating the beer’s similarities to an oversized cigar. Vanilla flavoured belts. Sweet, oaky, leathery molasses booze. Spicy peppery taste at first. Lots of oak on the nose. Cantaloupe and autumnal leaves in the aftertaste. Honey. Silky smooth mouthfeel, not very thick. I’m not a huge fan of quads, but this still left me impressed.

Phenomenal brew. Been wanting to try this for a long time. Thanks kathouse!! Pours an attractive mahogany. Aromas of banana, coconut, oak, molasses. Flavours are sweet and boozy. More banana, caramel, Belgian candy. Quad like for sure..but with a huge kick. Awesome.

Strong scents of licorice and molasses. Nice dark color, very thick with a slight purple tint to it. Starting off cold it is very smooth with some great licorice flavors. Will see how it develops as it warms up. I wish I could have aged this for a while, but since I was traveling I had to drink it shortly after purchasing.
