25.4 oz bottle. Clear pink brown with white frosting. Nose is raisin, banana, caramel and alcohol. Medium body with a tingle; smooth but gets hot. Taste is dates, fruit cake and brown sugar. Kind of raw but not a bad take on a tough style.

Typical American Quad, boozy, sweet, and lots of stressed phenolic yeast. Not much more to say.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle from the Oak. Poured an orange/brown body with a large foamy long lasting off white head. Aroma is sugary and loaded with alcohol heat. Notes of yeast, bubble gum, rotten banana, raisin puree, toffee and a hint of light floral notes. The body is rather well done with a medium mouthfeel, easily noticable carbonation, and a good dose of alcohol warming on the finish that really lingers in your throat. The flavor starts off with a harsh dryness that makes it a little difficult to concentrate on the subtle notes. Once that passes notes of dry grainy bread, banana peel, confectionery sugar, yeast, alcohol and dry tropical fruits. At first I wasn’t sure about this one but it really grows on you sort of like cheese on the vag of a dirty stripper.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle picked up at SL... Just watching the game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. Murky red in color, medium head. Sweet aroma of sugar, hops and malty bread notes. Taste is a little sweet for a quad... Sugary, bready with some light fruit notes. Not bad but I can think of better quads. Medium smooth texture, the alcohol is well hidden. Overall nice sipping beer.
