3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours purplish red with moderate but brief tan head. Aroma dark fruits, a little sourness and surprisingly some hops. Taste matches with dark fruits, candi sugar, belgian yeast and pine/resinous hops. Palate full with moderate carbonation. Finish slightly bitter and prolonged with dark fruits and mild hops. More hops than most quads but not bad, I would say a nice balance but not a traditional quad. As the advertising says I imagine the taste of this will vary a lot with aging.

750 ml bottle purchased at Liquor Shed in Casper, $11.99
Another powerful pop when I removed the cage and cork. No spillage.
Lots of foam so I’m waiting for that to settle down. Okay, it has a deep brown kind of mahogany colour to it, looks to be clear. The foam is off white bordering on tan. I see nice lacing.
I smell some sweet goodness. Caramel malt that fades into a port like nose that also has some fruity aromas going on. That’s not all; I get some notes of chocolate and some cherries. Some alcohol as well but it’s pretty well masked.
The taste is less sweet than I would have guessed. A port like flavour greets me at the door followed by toffee, figs, some cherries that add a mere hint of tartness. I also get more than a hint of the abv...lots of warming ensues. I wish more of the Port stood out but this is certainly tasty enough without that happening.
Despite the big pop on opening and the great looking foam I see after every pour, I’d call the carbonation on the near delicate side.
This is a beer and brewery that I’ve never even heard about, probably saw it on the shelves in FT Collins but never noticed, but I really like this one a lot. It has a comforting feel to it.

Caramel brown. Fat, fizzy white head. Toffee, plums, alcohol. A little unbalanced, like the sharp edges need to be sanded down. Decent, but not awesome.

Mooi donkerbruin bier. Aroma’s van mout, gedroogd fruit en wat caramel. De smaak is mooi zacht zoet-bitter, met tonen van mout, gedroogd fruit, caramel en wat chocola. Een lekkere licht bittere hoppige afdronk, maken dit een mooie complexe quadrupel. Heerlijk!

Bottle at Boekencafe Schrijvers, Eindhoven. Pours dark copper brown almost black with creamy lasting off-white head. Aroma is very fragrant with malt, caramel, apples, melon, yeast, wine and alcohol with hints of dill and fennel. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Body is creamy with good carbonation. Finish is heavy bitter with licorice, yeast and strong fruity notes. Very good beer!
