brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
A: The pour is a bit light for a quad. It appears to be a dark amber sort of color with a creamy, off-white head. S: It has the requisite sweetness to begin with. A nice caramel and brown sugar sort of aroma with a fair amount of yeastiness. A mild spice ester profile and maybe even a bit of grape must. T: Starts out with dark fruit flavors such as plums, red grapes, and cherries. Some toffee, caramel, and molasses are present, which provide some sweetness. However, this has some different flavors that I wasn’t quite anticipating. I pick up a fair amount of toasted malt flavor and a sourness that seems to pick up the more I drink. M: The body is medium with the carbonation being middle of the road (usually I like my Quads a bit more effervescent). D: This was quite different. I enjoyed it, but it’s not exactly what I was anticipating. Still worth trying out, of course, and the complexity of it kept me interested.

Draft. Poured a clear reddish brown color with an average to large fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted nutty malt, yeast and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Tap at RR Brewpub. It pours deep ruby-amber, with a white head. The nose is sweet candy floss/icing sugar, jam and dark fruits - plum and red grape. The taste is boozy, dark fruit: raisin, currant, plum, fig and red grape, vinous, wood, spice, jam and alcohol warmth, with a dry finish. Very fruity and well balanced. Full body and moderate carbonation. Good stuff.

Dogbrick (11492) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear dark bronze color with a medium light beige head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, dark fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of sweet yeast and malt accented by raisins and spices. The finish is sweet and malty with a lingering yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
