4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12.7 ounce corked bottle with cage poured into the Ovila gold rimmed chalice glass. Nice tan head that slowly subsides but stays around thanks to the proper glassware. Sweet malty aroma of prunes and currants. Well balanced complex mouth feel and taste of ripe prune and plums with some banana and yeast. The alcohol is well hidden and this beer becomes better towards the end as it warms. Nice sweet lingering finish. One of the best quads made in America.

This beer has so many layers to it I do not know where to begin. It is mysteriously dark, has notes of caramel, figs, and various dark enchanting fruits.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.7 ounce corked, crowned bottle. Translucent brown color topped by a small brief tan head. Sulphury sweet toasted malt nose with notes of plums and figs. Interesting roasted malt flavor has a cloying dark fruit component. I’m tasting dried fruits like currants, prunes and figs along with notes of port wine and sherry. Soft and flavorful with a touch of yeastiness.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear chestnut color with a fizzy beige head with little lacing. Aroma is mostly of alcohol with a faint fruitiness in the background. The flavor starts with booze and sweet fruit and moves quickly into roasted malts and a little molasses. Surprisingly light bodied. Good.
