2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with a nose of dark sugar, syrupy corn sweetener, and bisquit. Flavor is, even after two bottles, a coppery turd of excessive suck. Average mouthfeel. Beyond awful. Not even close to a quad.

Not the best beer by this brewery, but its alright. Definitely not worth the money. Malty caramel, fruit, and dark belgian yeast flavors. Itís just not worth the hype and price.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark mahogany pour with a beige head that fades down to a film. Aroma is molasses, dark fruits, dough, and faint clove and alcohol. Taste has a lot of dark fruit up front. Some burnt sugar and bread come through, and then clove and faint alcohol in the finish. A little alcohol warmth on the way down. Medium body with soft carbonation. Pretty good overall.

Hop this is good, as I ended up with a fair bit of it. Dark ruby, almost black pour with a small head that disappears quickly. Nose is plum, dark fruits, leather, esters, toffee, light earth. Flavor is plum, leather, toffee, light bubble gum esters. Nice, dry mouthfeel and well carbonated. Pleasant, warming finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2013 Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Color is a very dark brown, almost black, with a thin tan head. Aroma is very yeasty with some dark fruit tones. Taste is mostly of dark fruits and dark sugars. The alcohol is also slightly noticeable. Goes down smoothly is slightly less than average carbonation levels. Definitely a sipping beer due to its rich complex taste and high alcohol content. A little difficult to find, but still glad I got to try it. Probably not worth waiting in a long line for though.
Update: Opened a bottle after aging six months. Heavy flavors are toned down a bit and more evenly blended. Still very smooth.
