4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another stellar offering from these guys. Three Taverns is the best thing to happen to the Atlanta beer scene in quite a while. This winter warmer is no exception. On tap at (several little beer sanctuaries in Atlanta) tonight , Summits Wayside Tavern. Wonderful cardamom and allspice on the nose. Smells of malty sweetness. Really nice, Belgian Strong. In my mind exactly what a winter seasonal should be. Really heavy flavore of the same spices. The roasted malts with Belgian candy sugar makes for an exceptional beer. One that I will continue to imbibe so long as its around. Apparently pretty heavy on the alcohol as well as my head swims Halfway through my second. Cheers

Maybe I got an off keg or something, but really disappointing. Medicinal, way over spiced, no candy sugar to balance. Near drain pour for the amount of spices.

Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is heavily spiced with cinnamon and cloves and gingerbread. Tastes like a beer version of Glogg. Very festive.

Draft at Trappeze. Pours ruby brown with a creamy off white head. Smells like sweet cherries, spice, floral, light yeast. Tastes like sour cherries, dry spice, light yeast, and roasted malt. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

Dark reddish brown with a thick off white head. Fruity aroma with a hint of spice, maybe cinnamon. Flavor is dark fruit with winter spices. Cinnamon and nutmeg are noticeable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep copper brown from the bottle with nice ring of cream colored head. Aroma is big spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice, over dark fruits. Taste is nice spice over a good quad. Pretty nice holiday beer.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The spice aroma comes through with the flavor of the quad. A very deceptive beer for the Christmas season and great around an outdoor fire.

Bready, caramel, cinnamon, all spice, some christmas pie spice throughout. Medium to dark amber with minimal head. Spice is prominent but not overwhelming. Roast, medium high sweet. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sample at the Porter. Pours black, with a thick, tan head. The nose is caramelized sugar, ginger, allspice, light coffee, milk chocolate, and figs. The malt base is lovely, and the spicing is subtle and blends nicely. Very sweet flavor, with a pretty good, very subdued, balancing bitterness. Very heavy body. Thick, creamy, with a little lively, sharp finish. Overall, this is an excellent quad; great complexity and depth; sweet, but not cloying; and surprisingly approachable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. This is a nice big bready quad with a strong resemblance to well spiced french toast n liquid form. The brew hovers right on the precipice of spice cabinet overkill without falling in...but just barely.
