Not very carbonated, so not much head. Odd aroma - cinnamon and coffee, I guess. First sip indicates it may be a bit past itís prime - some stale, cardboardy notes. Some smokey notes, some winey notes. Slightly boozy finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

#24 [Blind tasting @ Papsoe] large thick beige bubbly head that mostly lasted. Excellent lacework. Dark mahogany colour. My first impression is that of a very sweet Quardruple. Dried fruit, herbal, caramel. Over the palate hint of brown sugar, star aniseed and some bread. . Full bodied with soft carbonation and alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet flavour with light floral bitter feel. Sweet sugary herbal lingering finish. 3 / 6 / 7 / 3 / 14 = 3.3
