4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
For the price, this beer is really something special. It pours almost like a soda would (which honestly surprised me - tons of CO2!). It is very carbonated but not in a way that deters from the sweetness and warmth of the beer. Flavor wise it is very fruity, like a Port meeting an ale, but it is done perfectly and never gets tiring or sickly sweet. The alcohol is barely noticeable taste wise but it can definitely get on top of you. Tread carefully!
Overall very impressed with this beer. Bought on a whim and will be buying again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 355ml bottle on 1/2/2016. Pours a deep mahogany with a medium head. The nose features chocolate, dark fruit and a bit of spice. Taste wise, it’s bold and complex, beginning with chocolate and caramel malt, followed by plums, dates and peach, with some mild spiciness at the back. The palate is quite creamy and the carbonation light and a little fizzy. A really cohesive, approachable and enjoyable dessert beer. Definitely amongst the best quads I’ve had.

Highly carbonated which I feel doesn’t suit the taste of the beer. Pours a rich coffee like dark brown. Strong spiced aroma and Taste. Fresh spice hits with a bit of nutmeg.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Martins West in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is dark breads, dark fruity malts. Taste is a bit underwhelming and slightly bitter. Was hoping for something else...more of a bitter pill than expected.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Prevalent aroma. Deep coffee brown color. Persistent, light tan, small-bubble head. Higher carbonation than I would expect. Lighter bodied. Not my favorite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Let’s get aroma out of the way. This definitely has an aroma, but for some reason, I cannot place what exactly I am smelling. (update: after it sat for a while, got more of a dark fruit smell and a yeast smell). Pours a very dark brown with a dense, tan head. Beautiful looking beer. Taste of dark fruits and yeast.
It just feels very over-carbonated to me. Even after it sat for a while, it was very lively on the tongue. Too much for my preference. Also, a bit more medium bodied than expected for a Quad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle, BB 18 Dec 17. Pours dark ruby red in my Struise tulip glass, with nice fluffy and long lasting tan head. Interesting aromas of earthy yeast, stewed plums, raisins, some red wine. Less heavy and flavoursome than expected - plums, light red wine tannins, the earthy yeastiness. Lightly dry in the finish. Very light bodied, drinks more like 4.5% than 9% ABV. Not bad at all but I?d hoped for more flavour in a beer like this.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a reddish tint and a creamy light-beige head. Aromas of dark fruits, yeast, malt and alcohol. Taste: dark fruits, some spice, red wine. There is a fairly strong yeast presence. Fairly sweet finish with very little bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.341 bottle. Hazy, dark brown color and virtually no head. Aroma of malts, spices, overripe fruits, and a bit of alcohol. Taste is sweet, malty, delicately alcoholic again. A medium body, a slick texture, and a lively carbonation. Finish is bitterer, a bit off balance. Overall a standard beer, I have no idea what the hype is about. Perhaps a wrong bottle.

Bière de couleur brune assez foncé avec le peu de reflets qu'il y'a couleur rouge caramel
La mousse qui est fine et compact laisse une belle dentelle
Au nez on va sentir des arômes caramélisé et fruité comme les figues les datte le pruneau
En bouche on va sentir des saveurs sucrées et alcoolique
Avec toujours des saveurs de pruneaux de datte
On va ressentir une légère amertume et enfin de bouche un retour alcoolique puissant
