4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours really murky dark brown with some beige bubbles for head. But they try to lace. The aroma is amazing. Citrus, dates, mango. I’m sure there’s a lot more, but I just can’t deal with it. Med body. It’s just slightly sour, a little bit earthy. It’s almost tannic. Raisins. Earthy turns towards barnyard. It does have the feel and some of the sweetness of a liqueur. But also a suggestion of brandy. Citrus. Mango. It’s a little astringent. And it keeps changing with time. Heat is not really noticeable. This is a quad to die for.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Kihoskh shared with esp0r, edvard and Simonsen at The "Esp0r #2000 Weekend in The Woods" 2014. Cloudy brown body with a thick tanned head. Aroma of apple pie, caramel, mango, belgian yeast, alcohol, wood. Taste is lightly sweet, plum, tropical hops, burned malt, anise, metallic hints, banana. Quite a lot going on here, the finish adds a hoppy fruit character and alcoholic burn, grand marnier character is there but very subtle. A nice beer, though maybe a bit over the top.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy dark brown colored pour. Off-white head. Plenty of lacing. slight tropical fruit with some notes of dark fruit and raisins, malt. Taste isn’t much in the way of tropical and I probably wouldn’t drink it again unless it was freezing out.

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a hazy dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex earthy hop and tropical fruit aroma. Medium to abundant body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Good complex dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good complex brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle, shared by b3shine. Kinda hazy amber brown color. Pours with a bigger khaki head. Leaves good, thicker sheets of lace. Hazy dark caramel, slight brown color. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, creamy, lighter carbonation. More drying finish. Cool dark fruit, and tropical fruit aroma, and a light spicy bite at the end. Some caramel malt. Alcohol is otherwise well-hidden for the ABV. Moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter. Just a very light bit of heat. Dark fruit, light spice, hint of some kind of liquor barrel influence. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Cool, tasty interesting stuff. Interesting quad, very unique. I enjoyed this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the group; thanks DuffMan). Looks good for the style; a loudy copperish brown with foamy off-white head. Smells of Belgian yeast, dark fruit, and spice. Tastes like it smells with a solid, full-bodied mouthfeel. A fair amount of fruity sweetness, but not quite cloying. Good, not great.
