3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle share at the Syb Pig. Small snifter. Pours a dark brown with a thin eggshell head. Aroma is dark chocolate, nibs, cherries, sugar, and liquor. Taste is dark chocolate, cherry cordial, light orange, cocoa nibs, and booze. Medium body. (I found it somehow a little watery??) Sort of a mediocre taste. Finish was kind of flat. Not my favorite.

Mahogany brown, with a loose white head. Smells like cherry, coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate covered cherries with a cup of coffee. Tasty, but a little on the heavy side...

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Pours an opaque amber/brown with a moderate tan head and some lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits, cherries, and candi sugars. Taste is sweet with dark fruits and somewhat boozy. Mouthfeel is a little sharp on the front and a lingering sensation in the roof of the mouth. Was expecting it to be a bit smoother and silkier for a quad.

Strange beer. Had a beautiful rusty brown color with white head and nice lacing. The aroma was heavy booze, reminiscent of hot buttered rum. Nice cherries, tobacco, and brown sugar. Very warming. The mouthfeel was flat and grainy, like the bitter part of the pecan.

22oz, thanks again Dad! Pours orange/amber with a light Carmel colored head. Nice lacing on the glass. Aromas of candied fruits, cherry, booze, burnt sugar, and a touch of estery spice. The flavor is mild and somewhat of a letdown. Caramel, candied fruit, light spice, and warming alcohol for the flavor. This tastes somewhat like a homebrewed stron ale that I made before years ago. Nice carbonation and easy to drink dispite the abv. Confusing beer

Bomber over at Brett’s house. Dark brown pour with slight head. Aroma is sweet dark fruit and sugar. Tastes are caramel malts, floral, toffee, cherry, earthy. Didn’t do much for us.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color with a thin sticky beige head. Fruity nose with lots of alcohol. Boozy beer with raisins, rich cherry, cocoa and alcohol. I didn’t really get any coffee out of here. Very white sugar sweet. A bit thinner that the quads from Belgium. This beer leaves a hot alcohol burn on the tongue.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a ruby umber color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is sweet maraschino cherries,cough syrup and dates. On the palate its a lot of the same with a weirdly boozy cough syrup flavor with notes of cherry syrup, date and a sticky mouthfeel. Just overdone.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 Rusty Brown with minimal aroma. Taste is sweet with Apple and pear esters and a cloying "homebrew" fermentation character.
