3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Didn’t have a chalice on me. Had to go with a tulip.
The appearance was a dark brown color with a one finger white foamy sustaining head. Light lacing stuck around the glass.
The smell had a nice sweet to spicy blend of dark fruits ( raisins, plums), slightly currants undertone.
The taste blended sweet to spice. It definitely has the throaty dark fruity aftertaste leading to a semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping quality about it. The carbonation was there and good.
Overall, this was a pretty good Quad I could have again.

[2/22/15] Draught at Port Brewing/Lost Abbey in San Marcos. Brown color. Nice sourish aroma with dark fruits and caramel. Sweetish-sourish flavor with dark fruits, caramel, and a spicy boozy finish. Medium-bodied. Not sure it’s supposed to be sourish, but it works OK.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2010 vintage bomber at the Brick Store Pub. Dark ruby color, with a thin, tan head. Bright nose of molasses, cinnamon, raisins, black cherries, tobacco, anise, and a little booze. Very sweet, with a nice savory spice, and light whiskey-esque warming. Lovely and distinct bittersweet chocolate pops out in the finish. Heavy body, smooth, lightly carbonated, and silky. This is a delicious, complex, and well made beer. Savored every sip. 5 years has clearly improved this one.

Pours dark amber with a thick, hazelnutty Brown foam.
Nose isnt big, Smells sweet and with a bit of raisin dry fruit to it.
Crazy palate! Sharp belgian yeast sweetness at first, then changes into a dry fruit freshness and finishes on the malty side, with caramel.
