Color is a very dark brown with a small tan head. The smell is fruity esters, malt, yeast and dark breads. I taste all the same with brown sugar. Nothing to get excited about....

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours cloudy and brown with a fleeting, white head. The aroma is a swirl of cola, toasted malts, dark candy sugar, dried dark fruits and caramel. Full-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is toasty, roasty and sweet. Well-bittered for near-perfect balance - unusual for this style. Finishes a bit acrid and acidic with dark fruit tanginess. Bottle generously provided by Rosebud butternuts!

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of sweet malts, some spicy yeast, more caramel, dark fruits, and hints of EtOH. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average texture. A solid quad, I would have liked this more back in the day when quads were my favorite style.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is a great blend of molasses, brown sugar, chocolate, caramel and plum. Nothing but sweetness. I would like to eat this for dessert. Very dark brown color with a virtually nonexistent white head of foam. Taste is not as sweet as the aroma with a decent booze burn at the end. Nothing but malt and dark fruit. Aftertaste brings back some of the brown sugar from the aroma. Not very complex or strong. Palate is pretty weak for the style. Overall I would say this brewery took a stab at a category that is packed with great beers and it was mostly a swing and a miss.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep, ruby-red & mahogany-brown pour with a small trace of khaki foam that settles quickly. Aroma loaded with heavy caramel coated prunes, Candi sugar sweetness, butter toffee, raisins, dates, prunes, moderate black cherry, a touch of alcohol, & a hint of licorice. Flavor has a nice spicy & zesty quality from the Belgian yeast. Almost clove-like with a big earthy & leafy backlash. Prune, Candi sugar, mild brown sugar, raisin, dates, anise, & a little bit of sherry alcohol tones in the finish. Dry caramel, dark fruit, & booze lingers long into the aftertaste with a hint of spicy yeast. Typically not a quad lover, but this is pretty nice.
