gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 30, 2012
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.

suprchunk (2244) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2014
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.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2014
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.

DrSilverworm (6370) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
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.

alexsdad06 (5410) - Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
750 ml bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a hazy deep amber/brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malt, candied fruits, tropical notes, the Grand Marnier character works pretty well with the fruitiness, mild spice, yeast, does get sweet but not over the top, warming alcohol.

b3shine (5425) - Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2014
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.

Enjoyit (3460) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
Unclear brown of color with an off white head. An aroma of fruits, spice, sweets and old appels. A flavor of sweers, dried fruits, a dry mouthfeeling and candy.

TXBadger (1381) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a brown color with off-white head. Notes of caramel, dark fruits, and some hop on the nose, weird combos; follows onto the palate. Not really digging this one.

dresden (845) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Lots of died fruity aromas of fig and raisin, surprised to read this has Brett. Very rich and not really tropical in any way. Alcohol very present but still pretty decent.

angel77 (950) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2013
Botella de 75 cl. En León durante buena parte de una noche de agosto de 2013. Aroma muy afrutado y floral, sobre todo al principio. Color ámbar-miel turbio con espuma blanca persistente. Sabor muy afrutado al principio (melón, mango, melocotón, piña… ) muy bien combinado con la malta. Amargor poco acentuado acabando con cierta acidez de la levadura brettanomices muy bien combinado con la madera de envejecimiento de Grand Marnier. Cuerpo medio fuerte con 11.4 vol maravillosos que hacen durar y durar a la cerveza. Muy Muy recomendable volver a tomar esta maravilla de cerveza, genial colaboración Mikkeller y Cigar City.
