2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, corked and caged, from Happyís Market, Ellensburg, WA
Cloudy darker shade of blond with small compact head. The aroma presents some bubblegum, banana, vegetables; and Iím not in the mood to forgive this un-Belgian idea. Smooth mouthfeel; indiscernible malt flavor, with little residual sweetness, vegetables, phenol, some spicy yeast, and topped with a hint of alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Pizza Port Carlsbad brewpub. Itís a reddish dark brown beer with a small beige head. Lots of dried fruits on the nose, a little roasted hint, caramel and some alcohol hints. Lacks a bit on complexity, but very nice anyway. Raisins, prunes, caramel, some dark sugar and a touch of bitterness and alcohol in the flavor. Full body, lightly warming and with a silky carbonation. Lacking a little bit on complexity, but itís definitely a nice quad anyway. Like it. 130813

Bottle. Dark brown and with some haze. The aroma is plummy and a little bit raisiny. Sweet and soft body with light plums, hints of dates, brown sugar and the finish has some alcohol. Not ultra-complex but a good, clean, enjoyable quad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe in the Ovila chalice. Pours quite dark brown with a fizzy/foamy head that didnít stay long. Aroma of plummy dark fruit transitioning to some smooth darkly roasted malt. Full bodied. Itís quite fruity - lots of plum. Heat is detectable but not bothersome. Finishes on a slightly bitter roast malt note. Great ale for a chilly winter evening.
