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.

fidelis83 (2120) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2014
Clear garnet pour with a tall, creamy beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, Belgian yeast, light vinous notes, doughy yeast, cooked dark, sweet cherries and a touch of brown sugar. Flavor is full of dark fruit, sweet berries and doughy yeast, then lots of spicy yeast, a little earth and some vinous booziness. Medium to heavy body syrupy, slightly creamy feel, medium, sharp soda-like carbonation, boozy warmth and a light acidity. Good stuff overall, but too bready and lacking in depth compared to really good Quads.

Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2014, dark brownish pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big brown sugar, molasses, dark fruit into a bit of grass, hints of spice, yeast into a bit of caramel, slight fruit. Taste was a mix of caramel, toffee, red fruit, touch of dark fruit into some dark caramel, some molasses, hints of slight oak, finishing sweet.

Bomber from last years Barrel Room Collection. Pours a cloudy reddish-brown, beige head that faded quickly. Aroma of dark fruit, my wife said currants.....ok. I liked this at first, but as I went thru it, it became a bit too sweet. Nice texture, carbonation was spot on. Overall a very solid beer, a little sweet for me, but very drinkable given the ABV. Next up, 13th hour.

Fruity aroma, chestnut brown color. Bold fruity flavor with a warm alcohol mouthfeel. Raisin and currant flavor strong. Not so sure about the clove presence.

750ml caged and corked bottle pours a purplish mahogany color with lasting tan head and spots of lacing. Aroma is full of Belgian yeast, dark fruits, caramel, and spices. Taste is sweet and fruity, with caramel malts becoming more pronounced as it warms up. The spices and banana come out in the warming finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a slicky mouthfeel. A very satisfying quad with a lot going on.
