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.

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.

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 Iíve had in some time.

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2010
Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours a dark, somewhat hazy amber-brown with a moderate, off-white head. Sweet malt nose, with some ripe, dark fruits, yeast and spices. Sweet flavor, too, with strong caramel, burnt sugar, faint bread, modest alcohol and dark fruits. Full in body with average carbonation and mild warmth. Finishes very malty and sweet with candied sugars, caramel and lingering fruits. Nice beer.

Sample courtesy of egajdzis. Poured a dark brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of dark cherries, raisins, cocoa, caramel, and brown sugar. Tastes of dark fruits (raisins & dark cherries), chocolate, smoke, and caramel.

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.

750ml bottle, thanks to Swolf3. Poured very dark, murky brown, very little head. Smells fantastic. Almost like a barleywine, very rich and flavorful. Very good beer. Thanks Steven.

750ml. bottle: This one opened with a loud "pop". It then had some overflow out of the bottle. This one poured a cloudy amber tinged drown color. Needless to say there was a fairly large tan head on it, but it died down rather quickly. The aroma is quite good. I hate to use typical, but it is very reminiscent of other good Quads that I have had. Dark fruits, raisins, yeast, lots of sweet malts to name but a few. The taste is complex, but there are some cherry, caramel and raisin notes up front. A hint of tartness in the finish. It is also a touch fizzy on the tongue. Very nice. I should have bought more than one.

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.

This was an awesome beer, but it had its flaws. The Quad that Iron Hill usually puts on draft once in a while is better than this one. I tried the Fe 10 on draft at the West Chester restaurant. It poured a very dark brown color with a fairly thick tan head. The nose was full of fruits, candi sugar, yeast, chocolate and earth. The body was very full and thick, but drinkable. The only thing I really didnít care for in this quad was the syrupy flavor. It was just a little too heavy for my liking. A lot of the same quailities that were in the aroma were found in the flavors, too. I got quite a bit of malt, fruit, earth, chocolate, candi sugar and a rye bready flavor.

750ml bottle picked up by Dean with gift cards I got for Christmas, sorry I rated it without you buddy. Poured a nice looking super deep reddish/mahogany brown with a head size greatly determined by the vigorousness of the pour, mine had an average sized light beige creamy head with a rather vigorous pour. Aroma started off with some sharp sweetness like dark fruits and sugars in some fresh wort. With time some light dark alcohol notes like sherry appear along with brown bread dough, raisins, prune, plum, sugary chocolate and Belgian yeast. Body is a touch thinner than expected with a medium mouthfeel and average yet very bubbly carbonation and a long lingering aftertaste. Flavor is more chocolaty than I was expecting, light burnt malts, dark fruit skins, Belgian yeast, dark burnt sugar. Good beer, complex and big.
