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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
