gramity (1530) - 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.

markextrae (2041) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2015
Bottle shared with a friend. Poured a murky dark cola Brown colour with a off head. Bursting aroma of over riped fruits, sweet pineapple, orange, mango, tropical fruits, Some honey sweetness, bitter orange Peel. More sweetness in the end. Can’t really detect any barrel ageing here. But i’m sure that’s where all the sweetness is coming from. Very enjoyable quad. Wich also could go as a barley wine after this age. Very Nice!

HonusWagner (1702) - Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Weird, weird beer. Sweet and fruity, but a little bit funky and tart with a surprising lightness of body (almost a fluffiness). Pretty good, I guess.

[My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a murky copper-brown with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is yeasty, fruity and a bit sugary sweet along with caramel malt and a hint of spices. Flavour is yeasty, malty, fruity and sugary. Alcohol is relatively well hidden. Average to medium boided. Quads aren’t really my thing but this is a pretty good version.

[6953-20141204] 750mL bottle. Fruity plum malt aroma. Hazy, dark brown amber body with a long-lasting foamy tan head. Boozy plum wood fruit and toasted grains flavour with a long sweet aftertaste. Full body. Sweet, not too boozy. (7/4/8/4/16) 3.9
(c/o blankboy, w/ him, GregClow, HogTownHarry, jercraigs)
Overheard: "There’s no such thing as too much cheese, bacon, or garlic." (Harry wants this on a t-shirt)

2014-12-04. Hazy brown body with a modest tan head. 3+ Aroma is fairly alcoholic, rich sweet malt with light caramel, and toasty malt notes. 7+ Flavour has rich sweet malty core, fruity and alcoholic. Tropical character of the fruit doesn’t really come out until it warms up. 7++ Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Just a touch boozier than my preference - though the alcohol is relatively restrained considering the abv - but a pretty solid take on the style. Bottle shared by Blankboy.
Overheard: "There were TWO penis related hubbubs!"
"Yeah.... Disney’s full of cocks."
