4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from The Davis Beer Shoppe. 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.

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!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
