3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 13C. Dark brown with a fat coat of off-white head that fades after a time but never quite disappears. Aroma of stewed and dried fruit - prunes, raisins, dried banana - dough, cloves. Full, somewhat syrupy texture, lowish carbonation. No real chocolate notes. Bass register fruitiness that’s lightened by a dry, spicy and discreetly bitter finish. Slightly disjointed like a low res picture - maybe would come together more in another few months. But pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark ruby with a bit of brown, with a fine off white head.
Nose is plum, prune, honey sweetness, clove, banana, slightly tart and funky. Interesting and enticing nose.
Flavour is sweet and malty on the attack, with clove, banana, more dark dried fruits, a hint of vegemite, slightly roasty on the finish with a good dose of sweetness.
Very smooth, fairly heavy body.
Really excellent beer, lots of lovely dark flavours and wonderfl to drink.

Aroma of sweet caramel, like barley wine. Sweet, with some carbonation and caramel. Big malts. Big body. However I won’t buy it again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice. A bit too effervescent, both in the nose and in the mouth. Pleasant fig and plumb aroma, which segues smoothly into the palate. Somewhat chocolatey finish. Not enough alcohol backbone.

Pretty typical for an american quad. Not complex, unimaginitive, none of the nice dark fruit.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear medium brown with almost no head. Thinnest of light tan collars. Aroma is of toffee, medium malt sweetness and a healthy indistinct nutty-fruit. Taste is deep fruit, medium malt and woody-nuttiness. Kinda thin body, with medium to low carbonation.
