3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours deep brown with a small yellowish-beige head. The nose is earthy, fruity, jam, berry, dried fruits, toasted coconut and caramel. The taste is jammy fruits, berry, sherbet, blueberry, raspberry, candy, warming alcohol, toffee and nut. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Pretty juicy. Nice jammy character. Good depth and high drinkability for the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of light spices (sort of cinnamon and anise), some dark fruits, caramel malts, and yeast. Flavour brings out complex notes of spices and traditional quad flavours, with cinnamon, a hint of chile and tamarind, followed by loads of yeast and dark fruits. Finishes slightly spicy and highly yeast. Mouthfeel is quite intensely carbonated, much more so than the regular Judgment Day. Good stuff, but I highly prefer the regular JD.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
375 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber brown colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of sweet tart berries, dark chocolate and some alcohol. Flavour of sweet caramel, tart berries, alcohol, metallic notes, dark chocolate, some off-flavours, grass and spices. Medium bodied, massive carbonation and a long, sweet, alcohol burning, metallic finish. Horrible balance and pretty close to a homebrew. What a disappointment. Hopefully it’s just this bottle.

Pours dark ruby red color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of berries, caramel, ripe fruits and yeast. Flavor of ripe fruits, ash, berries, malts, yeast and faint spice notes. Way too strong carbonation, dry palate. Definitely a disappointment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle shared by NobleSquirrel. Thanks, Brian! Pours a richer deep brownish plum hue. Darker, good haze, brownish rich body with just a touch of light on the edges. A frothy brownish head dies to a negligible layer, minimal lacing. Aromas are sweeter, Quad like with lots of dark fruit, brown sugar, kiss of cocoa and dry bakers chocolate. Gentle fruit, caramel and toffee mix with touches of gentle yeast. Peppery spice element doesn’t really take hold for me, kiss of spice and cinnamon. Initial is fuller bodied, cinnamon and brown sugar, touches of cocoa, caramel and toffee. Gentle plum, dried fruit and toffee. Middle is similar, a bit chewy. Gentle spice (but not heat, bakers spice), a bit sweet. This doesn’t really come together, the pepper barely makes an appearance for me. A bit sweet, sticky into the backend with some gentle cinnamon. Meh. I think the base is a lot better. This certainly isn’t a bad beer, but I was just expecting a lot more from the treatment itself.
