SHIG (3587) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Bottle: Poured a dark brown with a red tint, head is beige. Aroma is sweet dark fruits and caramel malts. Taste is filled with fruit yet has a suttle sugary malt. This balances it off a bit and provides a very tasty beer.

nimbleprop (4880) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Served on tap in a goblet at Brasserie Beck in Washington D.C. Listed on the menu as a double-triple, listed here at a Quad. What is it really? Translucent, dark brown with a creamy slightly tan head. Smells like a quad. tons of sugar and malts, Belgian dark candy, Belgian yeasts, dark fruits. Flavor was similar, dark sugar, molasses, chewy malts, toffee, raisins, bananas, Belgian yeast. A little more than medium bodied, slightly chalky and sweet. If it called itself a quad it might be a little less confusing.

(750ml bottle) Pours a mahogany body with a medium-sized beige head. Aroma of raisins, nuts, apple, figs, and some oxidation. Flavor of raisins, dates, brown sugar, earthiness, roasted malt, and nuts with a dry finish.

Score: 3.6 to 3.5

picking up some spicyness in the flavor to complement the fruityness, the woody fruity tartness is still there but more in the background, peachy sweetness shows up at the bottom of the glass,

Very dark skin, pours with creme, caremel sweet taste, strong but tastey beer. Not like biggest trapisttes but very sweet at the end.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Pours copper with a thin off white head. Smells of dark fruit, caramel, sweet malt, sugar, molasses, alcohol. Tastes boozy with some fruity hints. Too much sweetness on the finish.

gottalottaibu (243) - charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2008
deep amber pour. nice rich head. sweet fruit and malt in the aroma. dark fruits and alcohol in the flavor. rather sweet with some malt in the backbone. fairly smooth mouthfeel with a warming alcohol finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Tap @ Ginger Man. Poured a clear deep cherry wood color with a beige head. Sweet aroma with notes of plums and figs. The flavor is also sweet with dark fruits but drys slightly. Medium bodied with a silky feel on the tongue. Good warmth with zero alcohol flavor or aroma. Tasty and very drinkable but not on the level of the top ones.

LilBeerDoctor (3457) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap at the Ginger Man. Pours a deep red with a small head. Aroma of raisin, dark fruits. Flavor of Belgian yeast, alcohol, honey. Very hot and gets worse as it warms. Very sweet as well, a real sugary, alcoholic mess. Reminds me of mead or Kasteel Brune. Ick.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap at Ginger Man. Aroma of light asphalt, musty grass, caramelized fruits, medicinal fruits. In the mouth, medicinal fruits dominate. Not pleasant, and not even interesting enough to get a few giveaway points.
