3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very pleasant quad, if a little too thin bodied. Bottle into a snifter, served a bit too cold out of the refrigerator, but I have the time to warm it up. Reddish brown color that is somewhat transparent, with a thin, quickly disappearing head. Aroma of alcohol and yeast, dark fruit and sugar and the flavor follows the aroma pretty well. Dark fruits and sweetness predominate with a pronounced malty roundness and alcohol heat. Just at a guess, and due to the high ABV, I would say that this brew has an overload of sugar overpowering the malts, and it has a negligible hop presence, standard for the style. Iím certainly enjoying the one I bought, but would probably find two a bit cloying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from andersons east side. Nose is sweet but has a bite. Smooth upfront. Has quite a bite to it especially at first. Dark malts shine through. Aggressive but kills the taste buds early on. A man's beer and heavy.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful mahagony color with tan head. Aroma is rich malt, dark dried fruits, booziness, and Belgium yeast, cloves. Flavor is rich caramel malt, dark dried fruits, raisins, plums, candied sugar, a little bit of cherry. Finishes with dark fruits, sugar, alcohol vapors, and Belgium yeast. Didnít go into this beer with high expections but this brew really blew me away. Really great for a quad made in the US. This beer is so under rated.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beauty in this beer is both in its color (it pours a lovely shade of reddish brown) and in its smooth finish. The label says itís brewed with raisins, and you can smell and taste the presence of raisins throughout. Itís a strong beer. Itís got just the faintest bitterness to it in its aftertaste, but itís very smooth overall.

Good quad. From Wes, one of his favorites. Heavy, without trying to over-perform. 11.8 ABV
