Bottle at Toncatchers. Thanks to Wee Heavy for bringing this. Brown pour with a big off-white head. The aroma was big with sweet malts and some wood. Thew flavor was complex with layered oak, sweet dark fruits, caramel malts and a small taste of hops. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy. The finish long and sweet. Overall: I liked it. Very nice quad.

Toncatchers tasting 2. Brown sugar and sharp malt jump out on the nose. Vanilla smoothness too. I got caramel and bubblegum out of the taste. Unfortunately I was not impressed. Boring. Sorry guys. Maybe other bottles were better?

JK (4293) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Sweet with maple syrup. Lots of yeast in the aroma and flavor, but it doesn’t seem like a Belgian strain, and this doesn’t make me think of a Belgian beer. A little wood, but I don’t taste the wine. The description sounds like an awesome idea, but for some reason it seems like it didn’t work out.

Bottle from swolf3 a while back, thanks again Mr Wolf ! Clear mahogany with a tan head. Very good woody oak aromas with smoked nuts. Medium body. Sweet toasted spicy caramel Quad flavors with vanilla and wood. Warming booziness to finish. NIce fireside sipper.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2009
750 mL bottle shared by CharlesDarwin. Pours dark purplish brown with a very small beige head. The aroma is rum and raisins, some spicy notes, vanilla, oak, and a surprisingly strong vinous character. The flavor is sweet rum and brown sugar, red wine, cinnamon, and dark fruits. The finish is clean and sweet and leaves a sugary aftertaste. Surprisingly vinous throughout. After a few sips I kind of warmed up to it, but it’s still a tad too sweet for my general tastes.

750mL Bottle. Cranberry, raisins, and cork. Spicy yeast notes, mingle with some exotic spice and light bourbon. Wet caramely vinous raisins. Lots of vinous oak tannin character. Light malt tang. Pours with some viscosity, red-purple-brown, clearish. Malt tang merges with a spice mix and some pie character. Oily, wet-wine character. Sugary. Alcohol lays down real well and lets a lot of sugar and spice flow forth. Yeast runs through. I find this somewhat mediocre. A lot of residuals sugars, with an overbearing hand of spiciness. Wet barrel character. Just not getting all that excited about this. Muddled and a little messy.

badgerben (4364) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2009
MN Ratebeer Winter Gathering, January 10, 2009. Courtesy of DalzAles. Dark brown color with a medium head. Strong brown sugar aroma. Big, powerful malt flavor. Heavy on the sugar. Quite herbaly, like Rochefort 10. Yeasty. Yummy.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Sampled via 750 ml bottle during MN Gathering II and shared by DalzAle. Pours a semi-hazy dark brownish amber brew with a fast dissolving light tan head that dissipates to a clean top. Aroma of caramel and vanilla with a hint of brown sugar and candi sugar. Taste is full bodied, with flavors of raisin, caramel, vanilla, red licorice, and some rum. Finish is sweet as sin with a lingering raisin and rum aftertaste. Dang! Now I need to pay visit to my local church confessional for sampling this sinful Quad.

Bottle thanks to DalzAle. Deep brownish red pour with no head. Sweetness and a bit of tartness on the nose along with a bit of oak. The flavors are very sweet. Some cough syrup, dark fruits and bourbon.
