3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2015 12 oz bottle with a bottled on date of 12/2014 (revised and revised in July 2015). .
Poured with a good sized, somewhat creamy tan head over a clear, dark, reddish brown body. Fine lacing.
Aroma: over ripe fruits including banana, wet wood, and some clove and other spices.
Flavor: too sweet with a strong sense of artificial vanilla, over-ripe soft fruits, dark dried fruits and mild bitterness [earlier review]. Dark fruit and light vanilla-oak notes. OK bitter-sweet balance.
Feel: full bodied with medium carbonation. High ABV a bit too apparent
O: I’ve had this beer several times and am always disappointed given how much I like many other beers of this style. Not bad, certainly, and will probably be much more appealing to some others.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown/amber with a small beige head, aromas of fruit, funk, and wine. Taste is smooth malt, phenols, touch of sweetness, and the finish is dry and clean. A great American interpretation of a quad.

Pours dark ruby with a thin filmy head. Aroma is sweet with notes of wild cherry. Flavor evokes more sweet cherry with light malts. Very satisfying sipping beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. This is a nice simple Quad with lots of nice deep sweet malt flavors. I paired this with a small glass of club soda, rich espresso, and macaroons. It was quite a combo.

Bottle shared by the Beer sommelier during RBWG. Pours a hazy dark amber brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, banana, dark fruit, mild spices, a hint of a vinous note, brown sugar. Decent, not great.

Hazy dull light brown, aroma is malty lightly fruity, good hop balance, a light fruity tartness, spicy...I like this. The unfiltererd character is quality.
