COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To celebrate this first year, we have created our first Anniversary Ale, a big, beautiful Belgian-style Quadrupel. It’s showing with dark reddish brown hues and orange edges, an elaborate contrast to the dense white foam and heavy lacing. A complex aroma hints of banana, Belgian candy and exotic spices. Deceptively smooth, this huge ale is true to the style; while no hop flavor is present, a balanced bitterness is evident. Fresh baked bread, caramel and a whisper of chocolate come through in the finish.

On tap dry "tea’d" at better weather fest. Aroma of belgian phenols and oolong tea with raisins, plums, brown sugar, cherries. App: clearish auburn. taste is is sweet but not super quad sweet. The tea actually has an astringent tongue drying aspect that really kicks this up. palate is thick but that tea helps here again. I would love to find this again but I have a feeling it was a one off.

Hazy copper color with an off-white head. Nose is quite boozy and almost sour. Actually, it is sour. Some dark fruits, mostly raisins, with a bit of cherry in there, too. Some toffee and caramel maltiness serve as the base. The flavor has a mild heat to it along with the caramel malt sweetness. Definitely tart, mildly acetic, with some fruit notes of raisin, cherry, and banana. Really full feel on the palate.

A battle between anise and Belgian candy sugar. A bit too medicinal for my taste. Sprightly and easy to savor without being cloying though.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark amberish brown with small tan head. Aromas of toffee, dark fruits, bready malts, and some raisins. Flavors of dark fruity esters, bready malts, bit caramel, and some booze. Nice full brew.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 27, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours with a hazed deep amber-copper body with a tan head that lasts. Aromas of dark fruits, plums, yeast, brandy, caramel, raisins, cherry, and toffee. Flavors of plums, bitter, toffee, raisins, marmalade, alcohol and fruity esters. Big alcohol on the finish. Big but not heavy. A bit of lingering bitterness. Can’t wait for the barrel aged version.
