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 donít think that Iíve 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 Iíve had from Iron Hill.

Bottle: The aroma consists of grape, yeast, raisin, faint chocolate, and moderate alcohol that increases as it warms. It pours a hazy reddish-brown with minimal transparency and a moderate tan head that lasts a minute or so. The flavor starts with grape and yeast with some faint chocolate. There is strong candi sugar presence in the middle. There is some faint caramel in the background. It finishes with noticeable alcohol, light spice, and faint floral bitterness. The mouthfeel is full with some lively prickly carbonation that takes some time and swirling to mellow out.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 14, 2006
On tap at the North Wales location. Pours a dark brown with some amber when held to the light. Head was average size, off white in color. Aroma was very roasty, dark fruits, light alcohol, molasses. Flavor was also very roasty, hints of chocolate, sweet and very dry. Not exactly what I was expecting. Less fruity and more roasty than I have come to expect from the style they were going for.

JK (4416) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 Not so good. This beer has an aroma of Chinese takeout. It is brown in color, lots of malt in the flavor, but an off flavor of vegetables.

RBSG 2007. Murky brown color with no head. A little coriander in the aroma with black pepper. Celery, coriander and yeast dominate the malty body. Nice.

Hints of chocolate, ground spices, and dark candi sugar. Slight yeastiness. Light floral hop taste, but no real bitterness. Warming, candied finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Some creaminess to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: A decent, Belgian-minded beer from Iron Hill.

Poured a clear deep chestnut color with an off-white head. Sweet estery aroma with light choclate and a hint of smoke. A touch of alcohol fumes in the end. Sweet yeasty esters with some cocoa on the finish. Long estery finish. Medium bodied. Very nice.
