3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is as expected, yeasty and some musty funk. Very pretty colour of hazy strong tea with a sturdy thick head. Cloves and cherries dominate the flavour up front followed by some dark raisin, a hint of banana ester, a slight hop bitterness, and a definate alcohol burn. A very thick palate and a lingering aftertaste of cherry liquor. Overall a very nice upscale offering from Sweetwater.

Deep red/brown pour white little to no head. Fruit scent with some a hint of the booze. Taste is fruit and spice. Decent and should get better.

Bomber from craftbeerdesign. Thanks guy. Really looking forward to this. Pours a very dark brown with a 1 finger foamy beige head. Aroma is formidible. Dark malt. Strangely floral aroma. Full bodied with foamy carbonation. Flavor has a lot of smooth dark fruit, and there’s a lot of roasted malt for backbone. This stuff can almost be chewed. Mildly sweet, mildly bitter. Full of flavor. Heat is not detectable. Big heavy brew with great taste. Maybe a treacle/toffee finish. Great ale.

bottle thanks to the BS, pours dark mahogany with a medium tan head. Very fruity aroma of cherry, sour peach, yeast, and dark candy sugar. Flavor is full of carmel and chocolate tones with some almond extract and cherry. Solid

Clear, dark brown with light lacing. The taste was sweet as any Quad would have, but with a wild cherry flavor. Very malty aftertaste that will stay in your mouth with a cherry finish. The eleven percent is hidden well, but I couldn’t drink more than one glass.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a lovely dark and slightly hazy cinnamon-brown with a decent and not too persistent tan head. Aroma is quite strong, yeasty and fruity, slightly sweet with malty and caramel undertones - seriously tempting. Flavor is lively, yeasty and malty with strong caramel and fruity undertones - WHOA! This has quite a fierce alcohol bite! Texture is rough, tingly and sassy, leaving a lively and fizzy feeling on the tongue and inside the lips. A must!

Appearance: Pours a dark, reddish brown with a cap of white frothy film.
Aroma: Bubble cum, banana, flowers, dark fruit.
Taste: Dark fruit, booze, vanilla and banana.
Mouthfeel: Thick, creamy and fizzy.
Overall: Simply awesome. This beer was bold and focused. I enjoyed it fresh, but could see liking it a lot more after a year. SweetWater is doing some big things with this Dank Tank Series.
