37.5cl bottle pours murky brown with amber edges and thin tan head. The aroma delivers dark fruity esters like raisins and prunes as well as some molasses, a touch of caramel and then a mild oak to vanilla to boozy heat sort of sensation is noticed at the end of the pull. The taste is rich with robust notes of brown sugar coated prunes and raisins. It quickly picks up additional notes of sweet vanilla, molasses, a touch of oak wood as well as some oak spiciness. Nice quad.

kappldav123 (4960) - GERMANY - SEP 10, 2011
Tastes side by side with batch 2 and 3. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass brown-orange. Small head. Sweet-malty aroma. Starts mild, sweet, but not as intense as batch 2. Fine fruity hints of apricot. Finish with woody notes, modest sweet, hints of vanilla. Well balanced and drinkable. Liked it better than batch 2 and 3.
