3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle served in a goblet. Pours a hazy amber with a thin off white head. Dark fruit in the aroma, also a bit of cinnamon. Medium bodied. A lot of malt sweetness. Some more dark fruit, a bit of cherry that comes out as it warms. Alcohol isn’t readily apparent. Decent, but nothing spectacular.

3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 it’s 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.

Hazed dark amber with a good sized off white head.

15th October 2013
Tasting at Bruce’s new pad. Very hazy amber beer with a big pale cream coloured head. Palate is soft and airy and fairly dry. Creamy malt. Light spice. A little bubblegum ester. Light wood. Little coca cola. Smooth dry finish with a woody bitter aftertaste. Not bad!
