Cigar City / Mikkeller Swinging Harry Tropical Quad featuring papaya, mango, simcoe and citra hops and aged in grand marnier barrels with brett C. This sounds like a totally insane beer that is all over the place but in reality the fruit and crazy hops and weird barrel end up being really subtle and complimentary. A touch of tropical character here, a hint of orange there, but mostly all delicious brown sugar quad. The base quad style is a little on the less dark and rich side of say Gulden Draak which was somehow the right place for all the other fruit and hops to come in, all in all it was actually really enjoyable. The old school Pitfall! video game inspired label is sweet.

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.

JulienHuxley (3304) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle at man in the moon, shared by friends. Hazy amber pour with thin white head. Aroma is really fruity, lots of pineapple, peach, really boozy, tons of fruity alcohol notes. Taste is sweet, boozy, very fruity. Palate is warming, lots of alcohol, med bodied with good carbonation. A bit too cloying IMO, but still decent.

suprchunk (2269) - 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 (10841) - 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 (6601) - 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.

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.

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.
