Corked bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate spicy malty aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable complex beer.

Bottle. Clear deep amber, almost copper colour. Small white head. Potent sugar cane aroma with some spiciness. sweet flavours, good fruitiness, present alc, almost rummy. Fizzy and full-bodied. A barley wine that has yet to reach some more complexity.

Bought @ Steilacoom Wine and Brew. On tap. This beer is a classic! I am suprised at the low score? I think this quad is much lighter and more balanced between the dry and sweet than most. The candied sugars are lighter and the flavors are more subtle, but this brewery can flex its muscles without many knowing that this bad boy is 11.5%. A wonderful beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Sunset Grille - The alcohol is surprisingly well-hidden in this Quad. It is not nearly as sweet as these beers sometimes are, and I was pleased with this. Creamy, very spicy and highly malty. Graham crackers in the aroma...reddish brown body with a large, lasting white head...pretty decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Sunset Grill - rather light red for the style, with a nice, fluffy white head - aroma has lots of lighter fruity esters, like cherry and strawberry - bright, fruity flavor, with a lot of candi sugar coming through, but it manages to keep from being cloying - a lot of tripel-ish flavor characteristics coming through, but I can forgive it for that - had this next to the Founders quad, which made this one seem all the better.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Strong beer with a aroma of fruit and plum.
Alcoholic but sweet flavour. Longlasting after-taste. Beware of the high ABV.

(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm, 20 Oct) Dark amber colour with huge, firm, off-white head. Fruity nose with raisins, dried figs, notes of raspberries and blackberries. Slightly wineous with notes of molasses. Fruity, slightly roasted, taste with notes of brown sugar, caramel, raisins, figs and prunes. Sweet but well balanced, with a spicy finish. Full bodied, with creamy texture. Tasty and very warming.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz bottle via John’s Grocery. The beer pours to an extremely carbonated golden/orange body with a very tall light and airy off-white head that leaves peaks like meringue. Nice lacing. The aroma is strong with sweet fruits, lots of light yeasts, white sugar, some sort of dessert, bananas. The flavor is creamy, spicy, sweet, lemons, sugar. Much better as a sum of the parts. Quite good. The palate is rich and creamy, but also slick and goes down easily. A lingering yeast flavor exists. The high alcohol content is well hidden. A very unique brew.
