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.

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.

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.

750 ml bottle courtesy of my friend J that he purchased at the Lancaster, PA location. Pours a muddy brown with a reddish tint and a thin-moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma of prunes, raisins, molasses, brown sugar, mild spice and some alcohol vapors. The flavor is similar to the aroma and equally enjoyable. Medium-full bodied. Nice!

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tan haze. Nose is raisin, oak, fig and toffee; slightly musty. Medium body with sharp and foamy carb. Taste is fig, brown sugar, raisin and clove with hints of dark berries. Finishes with bitter spices. Surprisingly smooth but too bubbly. My first appearance as a Top Rater of Abt/Quads.

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.

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.

Bottle. Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of raisins, oak, chocolate, some bitter hints. Taste balances bitter with sweet nicely. Lots of chocolate and coffe hints present as are fruit and sweet malty characteristics. While this does not taste like an abt or quad, it is a very good beer.

Courtesy kramer. The pour yields a dark and hazy caramel brown body with ruby red highlights. A quick, foamy, tan colored head leaves minimal, spotty lacing behind. The aroma shows caramelized sugar, nougat, spiced figs, and hints of orange peel. Organic, earthy notes do well to cut the sweetness of the candy sugar. Likewise, flavors are well balanced between sweet, earthy, and fruity. Brown sugar and nougat again show strong, with hints of chocolate and various dark, caramelized fruits. Smooth and creamy, almost velvety on the palate. The alcohol is very well hidden, making this huge brew dangerously drinkable. Overall, I really enjoyed this one. I’d bet that this bottle was the beneficiary of some careful aging.
