On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours clear dark copper with thin white head. Aroma is sweet boozy caramel malt, heavy notes of fig and raisin. Taste is similar - body is rather thin for the style. Sweet dark caramel flavor with roasty bready and dark fruit flavors. Belgian yeast is present but minimal. Clearly not Stone’s forte.

@ Basunen 15-5-9: stora toner av korn. Smaken är ganska rå med tydliga toner av malt och bröd.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful clear deep red colour with nice fluffy head. Smells more like a tripel - bready, funky yeast, honey, but with some dark fruit hints in the background. The taste is as the smell suggests but with an unpleasant cardboard finish. Full bodied and sticky. To me this is really a dark tripel but doesn’t quite live up to the promise of the aroma and initial taste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Poured a brown murky color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing notes. Aroma of grainy unrefined notes with some residual sugar notes is a bit off in my opinion. Taste is also a mix of grainy unrefined cereal notes with some not well integrated residual sugar notes. Light spicy notes are also noticeable. Body is about average for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. The unrefined grainy cereal notes really bothered me and I could barely finish the bottle. Not sure I would seek to try this experiment again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Typical dark brown pour with a small white head that fades away quickly. Aroma is terribly strong, brown sugar, molasses and some yeastiness. Taste on the other hand is quite nice. Begins with some malts, somewhat dry at first, ends with a slight bitter note. There is some hops in it as well. Mouthfeel is soft, medium carbonation. It’s not an awesome quad as it’s lacking the richness but I would drink this again.

Torpedo Bottle. Cloudy amber color with fading head. Tastes like a mix of belgium quad, barley wine, and slight arrogant bastard. Not bad, but nothing special either. Meh.
