Dark brown color with a thick tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, plum with a little malt. Flavor is deeply sweet with a combination of malt and fruit. Finishes a little bitter which helps keep it from getting cloying. Some nice spice and herbs throughout.

2013/03/17 - Pours a dark brown/red with a small tan head that dissappates quickly. Aroma is dark chocolate, plums, raisins and alcohol. Taste is similar to nose with a boozy, dry finish. Thick, sticky mouthfeel with lots if carbonation. Very nice American quad. Would definitely drink again

Thoroughly liked the addition of plum to the already stellar Ovila. Just wonderfully complex with the deep fruit characters and the warm, malty quad. Aged my first for about a year and it mellowed quite nicely.

Draft at Drafting Room. Poured hazy plum colored with minimal head. Nose was caramel malt, plum, yeasty funk, tart fruit. Tastes yeasty, funky, tart, plummy, with a great balance, delicious flavor, and a tremendous fruity, tart, yeasty finish. Holy shit, this one is good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky brown pour, huge beige head. Huge spicy, fruity aroma. Huge notes of plum, fig, even some banana with a solid dose of spices, mainly cardamon, and cloves. Uber complex. Solid mouthfell, great body. Semi sweet finish with a nice, yeasty aftertaste. Gorgeous beer.

If God could prove he made this beer, I would be born again. Wow, this is America's version of a fine Belgian Quad. The fruits and aroma are perfectly balanced. I certainly hope it's continued next season.

Wow - spicy fruit jumps out the glass - mirrored on the palate plus sweet Choc malt after-taste - interesting drinking but not something I can drink much of - massive in all ways: sweetness, body, alcohol and spicy complexity - almost overwhelming!
