4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 10/19/2014, shared by dfroms. Dark brown pour, ruby highlights, a few wisps of head apparent. Aroma is brown sugar, plum and other dark fruity overtones, dark toffee, touch of chocolate, older leather character. Taste is dark brown malts, brown sugar, spices, caramel, smooth finish. Thick body. Great, really authentic and delicious quad, reminds me of a well-aged Trappist brew.

Taste is milk chocolate- covered cherries with plum, prune, caramel, and a sweet bourbon-like finish. Alcohol is well-hidden. Light but creamy texture. Excellent.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
What an amazing bottle. Aroma is dark fruits, candied sugar, and chocolate bread. Pours deep mahogany with minimal tan head and lacing. Taste is just perfect. Pumpkin bread crust, brown sugar, dates, figs, raisins, and a big chocolate malt behind it. Just delicious and insanely addictive. I wanted more right away. Can’t recommend this one enough to anyone.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a clarified mahogany hue, with a modest, diminishing layer of off white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was caramel & sweetness, with esters of plum & cherry. Ditto on the taste, with syrupy texture, medium body, moderate hop bitterness, and decent enough carbonation to convey the flavor notes. Alcohol warmth was most evident toward the finish. Quite tasty!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a dark red-brown with hints of almost magenta; the head is fine-grained, tan, lacy, and thin. Nose is chocolate, caramel, dates, toffee, fig, and a touch of mushroom. Very rich and sweet, with notes of barley syrup, coffee, and milk chocolate; there’s a bourbon booziness undertone that adds a nice warming note. Finish is long, warm, and elegantly smooth. Quite nice, and probably has a few more years of aging potential in it.
