COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its deep complexity begins with a molasses sweetness with notes of dark fruits like raisin and fig and develop further with an undercurrent of tart spice from its distinctive Belgian yeast for a truly transfixing brew.

Another great beer from the Samuel Adams barrel room collection. Pours a deep red with a quickly dissipating tan head. Smells fantastic, cloves, raisins, plums, banana and cinnamon. Taste is quite malty, with banana and cloves upfront, and plums and raisins coming in at the finish. Has quite a dunkel quality. Had in the bottle.

Tallahassee, Fl - Costco - 22 oz bomber - brought by a friend to a Christmas party - thanks! Dark orange pour, soft off white head. Aroma of brown sugar and dates, very sweet. Flavor is sweet as well with some brown sugar, some cotton candy, just a bit of molasses sweetness. Thick enough mouthfeel. High abv is hidden well. Decent.

Pours a dark copper color with 3 finger head. Poured into snifter. Aroma is full of fruit and a bit wine-like although thereís some definite strong malt and subtle hop notes once itís been open a bit. Taste - a lot of dark dried fruits (figs, plums) with toffee notes clearly present as well. Some alcohol mid to late palate.

Samuel Adams Tetravis is a big beer in the winter style. Pours nice and dark with an initial fizz, but whoo, what happen to the head? I pretty much stays flat from there. Aroma is faint molasses and figs. Taste is molasses, figs, raisins with slight tartness. Surprisingly smooth for such a high ABV. Tetravis is a tasty, warming beer -- great for after dinner.

25.4oz bottle, corked and caged, think I got this one on the last trip down to State Line. Nose is very fruity, very vinous, lots of plum and cherry, raisin, fig, red currant, molasses, faint maple syrup, brown sugar. Pours deep brown-red that brilliant dark ruby under light, abundant tiny carbonation with a noisy, soapy beige head. Taste sweet at first, touch oily with strong and lightly-hot alcohol, clove and oil, brown sugar, malty but thin, faint tartness, light-medium bitterness. Does dry out, but that jammy fruit lasts throughout. Medium body, heavy in phenolic and esteric character according to its yeast, just not a great combo of oily olive-and-clove meeting the thinning malt (though Iím sure Iím conflating the latter with the mild oaky and tannic barrel quality). The raisin side is also a bit thin and airy, as if the yeast had worked on soaked raisins instead of forgoing the adjunct. On the whole, an enjoyable big boy for after a holiday meal.

Pours purplish brown with a small fizzy head that quickly disappears. Aroma is raisin, sweet malts and figs and light oak. Taste is fig, raisin and sweet malts, oak dries out the palate. Not terribly boozy.

Pours a murky dark copper with a light tan head and decent lacing. Has an overripe fruit aroma with some clove, caramel and spiciness. Taste is same overripe fruit with some raisins and prunes. Cloves and a bit of spiciness with a caramel and brown sugar taste. Medium bodied with moderate/high carbonation. Good quad.

2014 bottle. Murky yellow brown with very little head. Smell is apple, banana, prunes and a little citrus. Taste is the same with a bit of pepper and clove. Nice brown sugar sweetness and the barrel comes through in the end. A carbonated yet soft mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
