3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served draft in a pint glass at The Cove in San Antonio, Texas. Pours with a moderate tan head which recedes to a thin ring. Rich, brown color verging on purple against a white background. Aroma is of dark fruits, nuts and slight vanilla. Taste is complex with elements of cherry, cola nut, and roasted malt. Mouthfeel, while not unpleasant, is not consistent with style and lingers only faintly. Overall, a very respectable beer and unmatched in Texas.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with a small head. Light malty nose. Interesting quad with some nice Belgian yeast notes. A little toastiness and smooth body. Very easy to drink and the Abv is well hidden. Decent quad from a great brewery.

The black malt makes this one, other than that a serviceable quad. Nice sweetness, very drinkable. Thanks Steve S.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Nearly black, super deep brown, thin frothy sandy head, little lacing. Heavy malty aroma, biscuity, dark pitted fruit to follow. Big malty dark pitted fruit on the tongue. Somewhat bright, sweet,
not all that bready. Not too heavy, meaning the breadiness isn’t over the top. Loads of dark pitted fruit tho. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Slight popsicle flavors, grape, orange, and cherry combined.
Seems a little artificial, but at least it has some breadiness and dark pitted fruit. Finishes somewhat sweet, bready, light dark pitted fruit, with a heavy popsicle presence. Different, not as heavy as others, but has a big
popsicle aspect that I don’t care for. Good, but seems a little artificial at times. Thanks for the bottle Bill!

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark somewhat murky color with a medium beige head. A sweet sugary nose with berries, candies, some toffee and yeast. The flavor is sweet big sugary flavors, berries, strawberry especially, some caramel, a bit of dark porter elements slipping in here. Really nice twist on a great style.

Pours dark plum with a brief fizzy head. Plum in the aroma and taste, too, plus some molasses and a bit of spice. Quite tasty, though not particularly quad-like.
