3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 corked and caged, shared with multiple others at brew club. Served at cellar temperature.Pours a minimal head, without lacing, over a cloudy dark amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is plum, raisin, dried cherry, vanilla....taste is raisin, plum, dried cherry, molasses, brown sugar, finishing with a sweet spice, light phenolic bitterness....mouth feel light,alcohol hidden, carbonation low. This takes a long time to open up. Give it time to breath. This is not as balanced as many in this complex style, but there is little doubt that it is an Abt/Quad. As many have noted it is remarkably expensive. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a murky brown color with an off white head. Aroma is of oak, vanilla, dark fruits, caramel and toasted notes. The flavor follows the nose with the oak, vanilla, dark fruits like plums and raisins, caramel, toffee and toasted malt. The body is medium with a creamy mouth feel. Overall a solid performer but definitely waaay too overpriced for the beer you get. You can get better BA quads for less...

750ml bottle #7852 1/6/12 (Courtesy or RSRIZZO)-48° in Trappist Glass-Pours a murky brown with no head. Aroma of dried fruits, yeast, caramel, and oak. Taste of the same with more dried fruit and sweetness. This full bodied brew is not bad but not one of my favorites for the Woodcut series.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Bottle froma trade with tytoanderso. Many thanks Tyler ! Dark copper color, with a slight haze, tiny brown head that disappears very quickly. Intense sweet malt aroma, ripe fruit,caramel,oak. Flavour is again sweet malty, with lots of fruit,oak, burnt sugar and I can taste the alcohol much more than I would have expected judging from the nose. A very nice brew who would probably benefit from a coupel years of aging.
