Deep hazy amber with rimming beige head aroma of strong malt flavor is malty yet nice bite of hops and alcohol reminds me of a barley wine YES! Feel thick and rich with some fizzy bite.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler from Brian shared with a good 10-11 people at Frankís End of the World tasting. Poured a hazy reddish brown color with nice tan head. Lots of dark pitted fruit, candy sugar, malt, plums, and other belgian tasting stuff. A little hot and lacking balance overall. Decent quad but notjing special.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Decent sized head of off-white bubbles that reduced somewhat quickly to a thin sheet of foam on the surface. Light carbonation. Rich aroma with lots of candi sugar, some ripe fruit, a bit of yeast overtones and a lot of malts. Color is a cloudy mahagony brown. Wow, fantastic flavor. Sweet and malty with more ripe fruit and brown sugar. Big chewey palate with a big alcohol kick and presence. Sweet, malty and alcoholic finish. A fantastic brew!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Maple Shade Iron Hill.
A: Murky brown body with a light tan head.
S: Light sweetness coming through, light sugar and fruit notes. Not as strong as I would have liked and not too appealing.
T: Malty and sweet fruits with some sugar, but not nearly as sweet as expected, a very thin on flavor in comparison to things like Abt 12.
M: Full bodied, light fizzy carbonation.
O: Nothing to compare to real Belgian quads, this is just too thin and bland in comparison. It was a big disappointment really.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is dark red/brown with a thin white head. Aroma is very sweet with notes of cherries, plums, and belgian yeast. Flavor is sweet as well with huge notes of candied sugar, bananas, and a slight spice finish. Not very well balanced, but if you are a fan of sweet beers then this is worth a try.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to Crusianbeer. Pours a dark amber with beige head. Isnít much to the aroma, faint tart and malt, faint hints of maple. Flavor is sweet and bold with notes of sweet maltiness, spice, faint hints of maple and woody notes with subtle dark fruit. Heavy body with low carbonation....good stuff!
