4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from The Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont. Pours a deep amber with a thin off-white head that soon disappears. Slightly astringent aroma with deep fruit tones. Flavor big stewey fruit, sweet with a light bitter, salt to balance. Medium body with a fine natural carbonation, fitting the full flavor profile. Overall a little on the sweet side, and a delicious beer, to be savored.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Pours a cloudy chestnut brown with a cream colored head. For such a big beer the aroma is fairly delicate, notes of prune, raisin, sweet alcohol, dried cherries, toffee. The flavor is big with dark stone fruits, prune, raisin, cherries, toffee. The alcohol is warming and noticeable throughout the consumption of the beer, it is never harsh or out of balance. The flavors of the dark stone fruits longer for quiet awhile, they become a bit sweeter as well. The beer finishes dry making it easy to drink.

What is this? A quad? Doesn't seem like it. The aroma is woody with a touch of sweetness. The palate brings some raisins an stewed apples but not much else. Meh

Bottle from Spence. Pours a reddish brown, off-white head. Aroma sweet and boozy, not much of the plums. Body is medium, finish is very nice, tart, funky, spicy, leather, but still not much of the plums. Good nevertheless.

0.65l bottle #22, bottled feb 2011 from Kihosk bought as a gift from my girlfriend. Big thanks! This is a really murky charcoal/amber colored one with a small sidesticking and islandy beige top. On the nose I get sweet ripe bananas, green apples, yeast and a heavy heavy candy-sweetness! There is also a swiff of smoke hidden within this, but the sweet banana and candy sweetness dominates everything. The flavor is also quite there on the sweet side. Itís a heavy oxidation going on in this. Probably one of the most oxidized one Iíve ever had. Itís average on the carbonation and kinda sticky-oily on the mouthfeel. More brown banana sweetness, fruity with plums, dates, some thin raisins, melon and caramel. A bit watery perhaps in the finish. Slightly warming aftertaste. I like the story behind this beer, both the brewers and definitely the way I got it. 24.10.2012

Nice quad and only $5.50 for 12 oz. at The Grog in Newburyport. The plums give it a darker color but are not overpowering.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: Pours a clear ruby-reddish brown with a frothy and creamy off white head.
Aroma is sweet stone fruits, candied cherries, and faint alcohol.
Right from the first sip you are lured in by a subtle plum sweetness. Some of that classic belgian yeast cherry tartness makes an appearance in the middle and more plum - maybe more of the plum skin - shows up in the finish.
This is a medium bodied easy drinker that belies its 9% ABV with medium carbonation and a semi-dry finish.
Overall I truly enjoyed this beer for what it is - a simple straightforward take on a Quad style beer. I wasnít expecting this to be as good as it is and would have no problem putting it up against any quad [save St Bernardus]! I am really happy with this bottle and had no trouble finishing it as I typed this review. I would DEFINITELY get this again and will be on the lookout for more. Iím putting this in my regular rotation for sure.

Clear amber with medium size stable off white head. Lacing.
Aroma. .fruity, peach, plums, malty, bit caramel, toffee, floral hops
From sweet to quite bitter and quite long finish.
Well it was decent, but from quad I expect something special.
