3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cola like color with zero head and carbonation. Aromas of dark fruits, raisins, fig, cherry and even a bit of cola. There is a bit of heat in the nostrils as well. Flavors dark fruits and malts, cherry, and raisins, and a bit of bitternes that hits the side of your tounge. I love the flavor but the palate and appearance are lacking.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caged and corked bottle poured into a Trios Pistoles Chalice, I’m keeping that horse thing going. First thing I noticed was the lack of carbonation it produced no head no matter how hard the pour. The brew is a Dark deep brown in color
Aromas of dark fruits Burgandy like in a lot of ways with a good spice notes as well. The alcohol is well hidden either
Flavors of big sweet dark fruits and alcohol hit your mouth first. Not much bitter in this at all a little spice dryness in the end. This is the first time I can truly say the mouthfeel really detracted from the brew no carbonation at all and very watery
Not impressed at all with this one had a ton of better Quads and I really enjoy the style. I finished the bottle but not one of my favorites

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught. Chocolate, raisins, figs, caramel, cherry and light alcohol in the nose. Deep brown, nearly black with no head. Very sweet but balanced with dark fruit notes. Burns a little in the finish and then gets back to its sweetness. Good sharp carbonation breaks up a thick beer, again balancing the sweet malt notes.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great artwork and story on the bottle. This beer pours a dark molasses color with little to no light penetrating. It isn’t quite black but almost. Not much head formed from a rather aggressive pour, and what did form dissipated quickly except for a bit of lacing circling the glass that stayed throughout. Aroma is popping out of the glass with hints of dark raisins, molasses, brown sugar, and a tad bit of spice. The flavor is very similar dominated by dark fermented fruits (plums, raisins, etc.) with sweet dark chocolate and cocoa in the finish. Outstanding flavor beer!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle : Pours a very dark color with some slight ruby tones if you get the light shining through it just right. Not much head, but pretty nice lacing. The nose is pretty good, but not as complex as some other really nice quads. Dark fruits, raisins, figs and plums are the most dominant. Taste is really nice and smooth, with dark fruits and raisins, with some roasted malts. Not much of an aftertaste. Very nice and smooth texture, and a just right body. Pretty freakin nice Quad if ya ask me.

The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Very dark, almost black. Velvet aroma, modest alcoholic. Tastes strong and malty, a little bit prickly, soft-velvet finish, notes of cinnamon. Very drinkable for its strenght. Great beer!
Big thanks to Kaggie97 for the bottle!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark and ruddy mahogany with little head. Plummy cola aroma with pomegranate. Super heavy on body with strong chocolate fruit cake flavors to match. Like a desert in a glass. Low carbonation, low bitterness, low alcohol presence. Very rich and satisfying. I could drink alot of this.
