Raisins, rum, burnt sugar, and candied apples on the nose. Hazy orange-bronze with a mostly fading, off-white head. Off-dry, fruity, nutty, and a little hot. Medium-full body, strong, low carbonation, and finishes with dry, crisp, fruity flavors.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2013 bomber pours a hazy orange/brown color with tiny off-white head and little lacing. Smells of raisins, belgian yeast, and spices. Aroma is pretty much the same, with some toffee, bananas, cherries, and bread. Taste is sweet and fruity all the way through. Alcohol is hidden well. Body is medium to full with average carbonation. Mouthfeel sticky/syrupy. Not bad for an American quad, especially at this price.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: The body is clear with a ruby/mahogany tint. The head is dense but short with mediocre retention. The head settles into a frothy tan coating.
Aroma: The aroma is restrained with a chalky characteristic and banana, syrupy cherries and bready aromas.
Taste: The aroma is very unassuming of the strong medicinal and syrupy raisin and cherry flavor. After a few sips some toffee presents itself, but the overwhelming flavor is the medicinal fruits.
Palate: Thick and syrupy.
Overall: I like this. It’s a big and bold beer with a strong flavor to it that I can get behind. This is also available at a decent price for a bomber.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy darker amber color with a bit of red in it. Nose seems a little sweet to me, and I can definitely get the fruitiness from the raisins in there. Taste is quite sweet and fruity, yet very smooth and not overly carbonated. Interesting...

Cloudy brown, nice white head. Smells like Fruit, prune, leather and tobacco. I get some bourbon or something like that, too. Flavor is prune, vanilla, cherry, a bit of booze, and a woody finish. Pretty tasty stuff. Thank to phatdog1 for the trade!

22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy burnt orange with a small white head. Aroma of treacle toffee, caramel malts, some toasted nuts, and dark fruits. Flavour of toasted nuts, caramel malts, treacle toffee, Belgian yeast and candied sugar. Complex, and like a traditional quad. Excellent stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is sour wine with a funkiness. Taste is sweet (cloying actually) caramel malt, buttery maple syrup, and honey wine. Lots of warmth after the swallow. This is a little too sweet, but well balanced and very tasty. Just sip it and everything will be OK.
