Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 2, 2012
375ml bottle, has been cellared since release. Aroma of sweet, dried fruit (apricot, golden raisin) and oak, with touches of white wine, light brown sugar, spicy, doughy, estery yeast, clove, pineapple and light but apparent alcohol. Deep, dark amber-brown in color, hazy and lightly sedimented (I made an effort to leave the dregs in the bottle this time), with a fine, lasting, uneven head. Flavor profile is similarly full of oak, lightly sugary sweetness and tropical fruit with winey touches here and there, peppery alcohol and a certain candyish, praline tone in the background. Finish shows some Calvados character(?). Hefty, smooth and lightly warming on the palate, body is full enough. I certainly decided to splurge a bit on this stuff and I enjoyed it.

Hazy amber with a fine creamy off white head. Aroma of red grapes, berries, apples and coriander, some caramel and marcipan, light woods, light vinous tartness. Smooth mouthfeel, fine fruits like berries, raisins, apple, caramel and some grapes. Fine, long aftertaste with good green apples and fruits

(375ml bottle from Papago). Pours a hazy, cloudy dark amber/garnet color with tan head. Aroma has caramel, vinous notes and wood. Taste is sweet with more ripe grapes and syrup. Full bodied with a slick texture and wine-line finish with a touch of alcohol. Really nice.

NikkTwist (2138) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle at Monks. Darker and smoother than the regular quad. Heady aroma as well. When first poured looked surprisingly clear though there ended up being a fair amount of sediment in the second half of the bottle. Dark caramel raisins. Very rich but a barrel aged ruby added to the normal vanilla malt bomb. This version is more refined.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Opens without a sound but pours with plenty of carbonation producing a fast head that rises and falls to a pancake that sticks. Smells of mineral, sweet malt and dried fruit. Full nectar with mild carbonation. A very malt forward brew with mild acidity. Sweetness on the tongue with nuances of dried fruit and butterscotch. The barrels are very noticeable creating a nice alternate to the usual quad.

Bottle, thanks Dave. Pours cloudy brown, with a fairly large tan head. Aroma is malt, wine, oak, fruit, and vanilla. Flavor is malt, fruit, wine, vanilla, and brown sugar. Body is medium to heavy.

Cork and caged bottle via SL. Pours a muddy red brown color.. when I popped the cork barely any carbonation response... Poured aggresive, no head to speak of. Decent amount of sediment in the bottom. Smells nice though. Raisons, plums, other dark fruits. Malty, raw brown sugar, with some oaky notes. Taste even better. Malty, brown sugar, raison, plums. The oak taste has just the right amount. All blended well togther. Body is oily, slick smooth.... carbonation level is low but far from flat. The alcohol is not noticable but slightly warming. Enjoyed sipping on this beer. Overall: Nice BA quad

Hasonlít a másik testvérére, de ennek például van egy vékony habja is és kissé szebb a színe. Illatában itt jobban érezni a hordós érlelést, ráadásul édeskésebb és marcipános. Ízében is ott a marcipán, bourbon whisky, aszalt gyümik, zöld alma. Az egész olyan behízelgő és igen selymes, itatja magát és a végén kirúgja a lábad alólad! Érdekességképen megjegyezném, hogy a papíromra az volt írva, hogy ez egy "Wookie bitch sör". Erre Te emlékszel Sörmók?
