desurfer (1190) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Deep ruby body with a tan, foamy head. Aroma of chocolate, raisins, toffee and plums. Flavor is incredibly rich and complex. Notes of fig, candy sugar, and bitter chocolate. Alcohol only noticeable in the dry finish and the warm belly afterwards. Truly exceptional.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2004
UPDATED: APR 15, 2007 Nice brown red color. Not much in the way of head. Sweet on the nose with some spice and maybe some fig/fruit. Lots of plum with an alcohol burn at the finish. I like the beer but I think it can be better. I will try it again but put some more age on it.

Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2004
A rich baked prune aroma. Hazy cola brown with lots of floaties. Menacing abv, fruit and a little bit of sassafras tang. A little disappointing in the palate and finish. Some aspirin-like bitterness on the lips. This was a simpler beer than I expected.

PorterPounder (5200) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Pleasant, sweet aroma, first thought was gumballs - the kind you get in a machine. Molasses, raisins and chocolate also present. Dark brown pour with a medium thick mocha colored head - good lacing - lots of sediment floating about. Flavor is not as complex as some Quads, but that does not distract from its quality. Has hints of raisins, molasses, chocolate and plums. Exquisite, thick mouthfeel, coats your mouth with flavor. 11.3% ABV hidden extremely well. A true classic, one that deserves its lofty rating.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2004 HaHa, This looks like a Winner!
A deep dark murky brown body with an amazingly thick and downy kaki head. The aroma is full and slightly smoky. Hearty notes of Coco, almonds, and vanilla; I hit upon vibrant dark and fruity notes: plums, dates, apricots, raisins.. Mouthwatering!
Ohhhhhh…. Yeah… Talk about a rich and robust flavor.. Yep, It’s right here!
Raisins, and Dates.. Caramelized brow sugar, butterscotch, candied apples. A plethora of chocolate malts, some Coke a Cola notes, a toasty biscuit, yeasty and full! This is like a insanely nutty Porto, or a 30 year cognac, insanely complex…. Underlying notes of horse stables and cut hay. Chewing tobacco and a black peppery spiciness… WOW, it’s delicious!
I couldn’t imagine a more creamy mocha palate! This beer drapes the glass with the finest wispy lacing… must have coined the term! This my friends is TRUE Artisan Construction!

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2004 SOOOO RICH!!! This beer is the sort of thing you break open at your daughter’s wedding. RIDICULOUS!!!! Opened the bottle and let it sit for a few minutes. Poured. Lovely Garnet head and brown sugar chocolate rose colored body. Lots of little floaties. MMM. Smells immediately like fermented raisins and vanilla. Undertones of chocolate, coffee liquer and hazelnuts. Tastes very round. First element is chocolate. Next raisins. And finally a lovely bittering hop taste that lingers post sip. Mouthfeel is excellent for a quadrupel. This brew has a great balance between the alcohol, the carbonation and the malt. Find it. Buy 57. Cellar half and invite your friends over for the ride of their mouth’s lives. G-rat

Wine like but with plenty of malt, earthy smell. Rich dark brown, burnt caramel .Warming alcohol, rich world class. Nice aftertaste. First Quadrupel beer I had.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Wow, a great night starting with this beautiful brew. Nice and cloudy brown pour with a fluffy head. The head is just sitting there, taunting me to explore what lies beneath. Odors of chocolate, yeast, fruit, toffee, and malt come through. Flavors abound with yeast, black pepper, plum/pears, and malt flavours. Just keeps you waiting for the next sip to open up another layer of complexity. Mouthfeel is medium in body with a nice slightly warming sweet finish. Superb!

Goblincat (379) - Westland, Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2004 Pours a nice rich reddish brown with a thick, long lasting, puffy head. Lots of lacing here. Nice aroma of spice, fruit (mainly banana and plum), and pepper. So much wonderful flavor and a deep warming sensation. I’m tasting a complex mix of plum, pepper, spice, and some earthiness. Good mouthfeel and overall a truly great experience.
