Bottle. Deep maroon color, bright beige head. Aroma of prunes, plums, raisins. Taste has sweet port wine, dark winter fruit. Alcohol is warming but not overwhelming. Very tasty beer on a cold winterís night. My 100th quad rating.

snoworsummer (2488) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear burgundy brown with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like roasted malt, sweet syrup, apple, raisin, booze. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like alcohol, light raisin, and burnt malt.

Nero55 (772) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2014
Draft. Ruby/brown with a thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and some fruit esters (raisins). Medium/heavy body with syrupy sweetness upfront, some chocolate, fruit, and malt notes with a dry finish. Unusual for a Quad.

12 oz on tap. Uncloudy mahogany with a ruby tint and a lasting ring of cream. Mild nose of dark fruit and toffee with some dark toast. Tastes of dark toffee, red grapes, and occasional disconcerting hints of organ meat and charred popcorn. Medium body is a little too fizzy in the mouth but somehow still manages to become slightly sticky. The abv showed only a touch.

Deep toffee colored pour. Brilliant. Small off-white head. Little bit of lacing. Aroma of malt and raisins. Sweet malty flavor with some hints of dark fruit and yeast. Slight bitterness. Pretty tasty.

Drank a bottle of this by myself on an empty stomach. Hid me a bit hard. Amateur move on my part. Poured dark for a Quad. Tan head. Scent is grapes and candy. Flavor is nice mix of sweet and bitter. Thickish and lightly carbonated. Bottle - Filet & Vine - Montgomery, AL

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Donít remember who brought out this one......But clear deep amber brown color with a small dissipating white head. Sweet Belgian yeast, nuts, plum and fig aroma with some toast. Similar in flavor with no real body or complexity. Not that great, I also hate this style.

jbruner (2502) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Pours a hazy brown from the bottle with thin ring of off-white head that leaves light spots. Aroma of Belgian fruitiness, sweet candied sugar, and dark malts. Taste is really malty, like a brown almost, a big Belgian candied sugar in the middle, and some dark fruit on the end. Kind of like a nice home brew more than a commercial offering.

Bottle from riverside liquors. Pours dark brown with a thin brown head. Has some dark fruit notes on the nose. Pretty smooth on the tongue. Has a slight alcohol warming effect on the finish. Hides itís alcohol well. I just wish there were more going on the tongue.
