3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark copper with a cream colored head after an aggressive pour. Belgian yeast, cherries, dates and a hint of coffee both on tthe taste and aroma. I expected this to be a bit sweeter on the finish but was pleasantly surprised by the dry finish.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is very sweet caramel and red fruit madness. Flavour is a tangy raisin liquorice madness. Meh. Not doing it for me.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 22 oz bomber. Hazy dark orange pour sticky off-white head, nice lacing. Muddled aroma, hints of alcohol, some blended whiskey soaked maraschino cherries. Flavor is where it really goes south. A booziness permeates it up front, some sour cherries, some ripening vegetables, a hint of dates. Mouthfeel is too slick. Back to the drawing board on this one.

Pours brown with Amber highlights. Astringent nose. Great head retention. Dried fruit, brown sugar, and alcohol on the palate. Tastes too much of alcohol to pick out the more subtle flavors, which is a shame.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle poured a dark clear amber color with aromas of bananas, dark pitted fruit, light cherries, bread, and some yeast. Flavors were the same a lot going on in the flavor profile. The beer was OK I just think they tried to do too much to this beer.

Heavy body and aroma of bananas. The flavor is ever changing. It includes a bread flavoring, coffee, the dates are there, dark cherry, and a alcohol bite. Smooth.

Smells delicious. Cherries, spice, wheat and breadiness. Taste is sour and an alcoholic flavor you taste in your nose. One and done.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Toasted caramel color with a fleeting etched surface with light tan foam. Smells like cherry cough syrup with some bits of cocoa and coffee, a little marshmallow and yeast as well. Very sweet, cherry, some nougat, some medicinal syrup, not really feeling this. Medium on thin for the style with tight, clean carb and a semi dry finish. One and done here

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A solid beer but I guess itís lacking something for a quad. A very smooth mouthfeel & a very good pour - this is a good beer overall. Cherry & bourbon aroma which is true to the flavor. The light body may not be true to the style but it makes this beer quite drinkable at 10%.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the November 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-brown color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweet toasted caramel, dark fruits, bread and yeast. The flavor was tangy and sweet caramel, date, raisin, dark fruits and was a touch boozy and grainy. Medium finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Interesting.
