Bottle courtesy of moejuck. I have always been impressed w/ IH s brews. Kinda the East coast version of Pizza Port- quality brews from top to bottom. This is another quality IH brew- chocolate, caramel, smoke, with a crisp, dry finish.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2006
Had a huge mug of this stuff in Newark last night. Pour was dark red/brown with a small tan head. Very complex aroma. Lots of dark cherries, carmel, chocolate, sweet smoke, and mild alcohol. The flavor is extremely well balanced with a lot of nice flavors and a well hidden alcohol hint. I believe this is, by far, my favorite I.H. Belgian style beer.

Thanks to egajdzis for splitting this growler with me... Appears a hazy dark mahogany with a small light tan head. Spotty lacing is left all around the glass. Smell is of candi sugar, toffee, grapes, brandy, light rauch, cocoa, caramel...very complex with a touch of smoked meat. Taste is of the same aromas with a raisiny, rum cake, cocoa, liquid smoked flavor swirling about. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly boozy, sweet, again with a meaty, sugary complexity that keeps you thinking about the hidden enigmas buried in this brew.

Bottle. Hazy brown pour with a yellowed tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, brown sugar and yeast. Flavors of caramel, yeast, spices and some dark fruits. Medium body, malty/spicy.

Wow, this didn’t seem anything like a quad to me. There are some notes of fruit in the aroma, some in the flavor but a bit more sugary sweet malts come through. Strange and strong.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Dark oil black pour and minimal head. Medium bodied, medium lasting. Roasted malt, dark fruits, cocoa, coffee, licorice, earth, tons going. Alcohol is not overpowering, but it is noticeable. I could probably go for this one again. Unique.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2009
750 ml bottle. Tried several times, but I drank last night at a Iron Hill Chocolate and beer tasting. Poured murky brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, raisins, caramel, dark roast malts and toffee. Tastes is very complex with toffee, roasted chocolate, coffee, molasses, dark fruits, figs and so much more. Light alcohol warming in the finish, but overall really quite nice.

On Tap, Lancaster IH. Subtle malt aroma, Dark amber body with thin head, nice lacing. Flavor is predominately candied malts, with hints of fruit and spice. Alcohol is hidden well, nice warming finish.
