COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A truly full-bodied beer. Fe-10 is rich, malty and very complex. Dark in color, this beer uses Belgian Abbey yeast, dark candi sugar and a huge assortment of specialty malts, providing layers of complex fruity aromas and flavors, with a warming alcohol finish.

750mL bottle, I believe from 2007. Poured deeper iced tea brown with a creamy cap of dirty beige head.. looked good in the glass. The aroma picked up chocolate, toffee, and raisins with accents of vanilla and candi sugar.. light clove and other spicy accents.. warm and well presented. The flavor found molasses, raisins, sweeter chocolate, and boozy sugars (think a blend of rum and bourbon) at the core.. banana showed up as it warmed.. spicy yeast, alcohol warmth, and mature, complementary oxidation laced throughout.. memorable, warm, spicy finish. Heavier bodied with thick carbonation on the palate.. transitions were only OK between the rolling middle and sharper edges.. very good brew overall.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Mahogany, red edges held to light. Highly carbonated. Dark fruits up front, faint yeasty character and alcohol through the back end. Flavor much the same. Fig/prune a little stronger, chewy/yeasty through the middle. Slight alcohol warming in the finish.

750 ml bottle thanks to Eric. A issue with the cork, and sadly this beer has lots some of its glory. Pours a copper color with almost no head. The aroma is sweet bananas, spices and fruit. The flavor is like a metal banana covered with caramel. Oxidation. Sweet dark fruits. Warm. I’ll re-rate this someday.

Corked 750 ml bottle; thanks Bob!! Dark brown with fizzy off-white head; killer nose of spicy yeast, brown sugar and dank fruits; first sip is kind of harsh with a big spicy kick; sweet sugars and fruit with bone dry finish; interesting and lovely nose, just not that smooth overall

brendaniel (55) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2010
Poured a dark brown ... very sweet aromas with a minimal head (probably due to the 5 oz sample size I was drinking). Flavors were very complex - some vanilla ... but definitely the candied sugars. Alcohol flavor was definitely present but not overpowering - especially as it warmed up to room temperature. Glad I got to taste this puppy at the Iron Hill in North Wales.

Pours dark brown with lacy head. Smell was strong of vanilla and alcohol. Found the alcohol taste to be a bit overwhelming but calmed down after first taste, that is probably the dangerous part sine this beer is 10%abv.

Pours a deep brown/black color with a tan head. Aroma of vanilla, yeast, and fruit. Flavor is vanilla and fruit dominant with some alcohol and yeast. Easily, one of the best I’ve had in some time.

kramer (5090) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2010
25 oz bottle, from first release, 2007 I believe. Pours a clear dark amber body with a large frothy beige head that retained as a one finger deep lump of cream. Huge heavy dark fruit nose with moderate alcohol. Plum, caramel, figs, very rich. The flavor is not as sticky and sweet as I was expecting. Still fruity, full of figs and plum but not sweet. Very minimal alcohol. This actually seems pretty dry and a bit dusty on the finish. I don’t think that I’ve ever had an American Quad that was so well attenuated and drinkable. Medium bodied with moderate clinginess up front. Very little warmth to the alcohol. This is one of the best beers that I’ve had from Iron Hill.
