Draft at crunchy's. dark caramel with an off white head. Dark fruit aromas. Dark fruit and cocoa nibs....and then terrible. If you could sip this and then immediately spit it out before the aftertaste kicks in then maybe.

Pours a light brown. Abbey type of aroma. Fig, dates and a little cherry note. The taste is kind of thin. Not many other complexities pop out. Mostly raisiny with some dry sweetness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the bottle into a small glass at a beer tasting. The beer had a complex aroma featuring a mix of bubble gum, apricot, cherry, and date, along with some more basic floral and fruity hops, and a wet barley malt effect too. It was a hazy, rusty copper color and somewhat cloudy, with an average-sized foamy white head with shorter retention, but good lacing and average cling. The beer had a very sweet crisp taste with strong sweet fruity flavors, bits of molasses and cherry, and a light sour finish. It was a pretty lively beer, with a thinner but good mouthfeel, and was a touch on the dry side with a strange coffee-like after-effect.

tap at Dash In - Pours lightly hazy amber with a small lingering head. The aroma is of yeast and dark fruit. It has a sweet flavor with some obvious alcohol presence. Dark fruit and caramel are apparent. Itís medium to full bodied and very good though as a fan of quads I was hoping for a bit more.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Soft orange copper pour with one finger of khaki tan had. Lots of candy in the nose with some capsiacin and rusty/grainy notes. Light malty sweetness and almost peppery character. Touch of coffee.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful in the glass with a rich, creamy head, the beer pours an opaque red mahogany. Nose is rich and slightly tart and hints of the depth of this brew. Pleasing on the mouth, on hinting at a more traditional quad as the deep cherries and tobacco linger. The depth is exquisite and begs for a second sip. Hints of vanilla and bourbon round out an immense profile, leaving a warm sensation in their place. Drink in the winter or a cool fall/spring night beside the fire.

Pours murky amber-brown with an off-white head and some nice lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, toffee, nuts, tobacco, and leather. The taste is sweet malts and fruit and a bit of booze with some nuttiness. Itís actually a little rough. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
