COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Quadruple Ale brewed with a blend of Belgian ale yeast and our house ale yeast. Woodcut No. 5 presents a rich, spicy, dried fruit essence and a deep auburn color. Aggressive vanilla notes from the new American oak compliments the Special B malt with hints of cherry, raison and plumb on the palate. Each Woodcut offering is truly limited edition beer with a unique flavor that comes from select hops, fine malted barley, and our brewers’ careful aging process. Enjoy.

750ml from the Fort Collins posse. Not one of the best of the Woodcut series, and that’s not just because it varies overmuch from quad expectations. It’s just that it doesn’t quite come together. Dingy brown pour but well carbonated, leaving some sticky lacing as you’d expect. Nose is intially fragrant toffee malts and oak, then some vinous notes. Mouthfeel was too sticky for me, and lacked the elegance and balance of some of the superior examples of the style. Taste was a bit imbalanced too, with a candy core leaning sometimes too far in the direction of port and elsewhere to wheatwine. Okay, I guess but not what I’d hoped for.

Very hazy dark red beer. A few pale tan bubbles for a residual and short lived head. Smooth palate with low carbonation. Semi dry. Rich and fruity quad! Tangy dark fruits and caramel malt with the familiar rich vanilla and oak. Pretty well joined up. Dry finish with a tangy fruit linger. Could have been really good but the beer is too flat.

Rich aroma of vanilla and raisin. Dark amber colored with no head. Tastes like a barley wine and quad hybrid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gription79 (2236) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. No carbonation at all. Hot alcohol notes, fruity, plum, raisin, very dry. No balance at all. Carbonation wood help this I am sure. Footbalmed! (drain pour)

madvike (2672) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle - Pours rosy amber with a ring of white head. Nose is sweet--brown sugar, raisin, bready malt, and a general dark frutiness. Taste is about the same--lots of sweetness and dark fruit, with some yeasty breadiness. Fairly thin, with light, gentle carbonation.

nimbleprop (4621) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 15, 2012
750ml bottle pours a copper amber with zero head. Nose of dried fruit, caramel, booze, tropical fruits, some orange, candy sugar. Flavor is similar, sweet, sugary, pineapple candy, oranges, plum, prune, a little wood. Full bodied, sticky, boozy finish. Well rounded.

750 c&c from Wine and Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very opaque brown with bubbles. Aroma of ripe pitted fruits, grapes and oak. Med body. No carb. Flavor is ripe, overripe, light pitted fruit. With oak astringency and some mild vinosity. NO heat at all. Finishes fruity, mildly oaky and dry.

marcus (6359) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours orange copper with no head and a winey aroma. There is a dry fruity molasses flavor that sticks to the palate, with a nice oak finish. This is a complex and tasty brew with the alcohol well-masked.

Bottle shared by my good bud Ed Roberts, thanks brotha! I believe that this one may have been a little too over carbonated. When I got my pour the glass was mostly consumed by foam. The aroma I got was mostly hops mixed with a little bit of spice notes. Malty flavor with a slightly sweet finish. Not too bad overall though.

27-AUG-2012, tasting @Papsø. Hazy amber, no head. Lovely hoppy barley wine-like. Malt, fruit, oak. No carbonation. Really like this.
