Mother of All Beers is the biggest beer we make at Pizza Port Brewing Company in Solana Beach. This Belgian Style Quadruppel features many Belgian ingredients including dark candi sugar, roasted wheat, and Belgian Chocolate malt. This is the base beer for the Cuvee de Tomme without the cherries and aging in oak barrels!

massive amounts of alcohol showing through on this, had a nice bittersweet smoky chocolate flavor, hints of port, i think it was more of the ugly step-sister of all beers =^X

750mL at a tasting. Not sure on the year, but the label is black and white with the Pizza Port logo. Hazy brown pour with low foam. Very old beer here. Oxidized nose is dark orange, toffee, brown sugar, more like an old barleywine. Taste is still drinkable, minty, akin to an older oxidized barleywine. Muted alcohol, tangy orange, not too sweet, its certainly interesting to try. Im sure it is a shadow of its former self, but Im thankful to sample this.

Bottle. Older label than pictured. Dark muddy brown pour, with a tan head. Sweet, heavy oxidation, caramel, dried dark fruit, and cardboard. Ok, still somewhat drinkable.

Really old rating. Poured deep brown with a nice creamy, beige head. The aroma picked up warm, well-aged dark fruit, toasted caramel, and lesser bready notes with some broken-down hoppage and spicy yeast around.. past its prime, but still aiight. The flavor found similar stuff, with some odd tartness and more broken-down hops toward the back. Medium-plus bodied with low-moderate carbonation.. OK feel. Glad to have tried it.

Bottle (older label, 05 batch I believe). Murky dark brown pour with a kaki head. You can smell the oxidation. Sweet caramel malt bouquet. Big caramel malts, dark fruits, and oak notes. Big time oxidation. Good body and mouthfeel. Would love to have tried this back in the day. This sounds crazy but the oxidation almost gives it a cherry flavor.

Bottle I shared at Clockworks 4K/5K/10K Gathering 2013. 2005 Vintage I think. Pours a deep mahogany with nice haze and light off white lacing. Aroma is faint, dusty musk, belgian spice and candy. Mouthfeel is medium, nicely carbonated with notes of musky dusty basement, faint fruit, aged belgian candy and spice. Slightly passed its prime, but this was probably one mother of a beer a few years ago.

Bottle at the 4k5k10k tasting. Pours brown with a beige head. Sweet malts, toffee, light yeasty spice, and some hints of oxidation-like weirdness. Still good, but not as good as it probably once was.

Bottle sample at RBSG 2010 (notes) shared by eyedrinkale (I thought). Pours a murky brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor showcased thick sweet caramel malts, big fruit character (berries, raisins, fig, even some citrus), candi sugar, brown sugar and some bready character. Definite oxidation, although it seems to have held up pretty well.

A personal whale finally tasted, thanks to Dr Bill at Woodshop. Piursca very dark brown with a big bubbled tannish head. Mega malf nose, sticky dried fruit, molasses, dark wheat bread and some oxidation. Flavor has held the test of time remarkably well. Sweet, malty, brown sugar, buckwheat honey, and light oxidation.
