Dark, reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma is deeply fruity, almost like a red wine with some notes of vanilla. Flavor is big malt with dark fruit and a touch of sweetness. Finishes sweet and a little thick on the tongue. A little oak underneath everything else. Deep and complex, very tasty.

growler. attractive clear deep reddish beer with a small head. robust, sweet, dark fruity aroma. the flavors are dark fruist, toasted marshmallow. freshly charred oak must be bringing the toasted(almost smoky) notes to the flavor. drinks almost light bodied for the style and easily palatable with a dry finish. my favorite from WH.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz Growler from Beverage World. Served at around 50F.
Pours dark reddish brown with a very small head, recedes to just a tiny ring and leaves a few spots of lacing.
Aroma is oaky, vinous, bready, a lot of dark fruit, figs, plums. Good to very good strength.
Flavor features tons of really rich dark fruits, oak, vinous notes, bready & yeasty, rather sweet, alcohol is REALLY well hidden for 10.5% ABV. Very rich, tons of flavor.
Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, a bit sticky, low carbonation.
Nice, complex Quad. The Pinot Noir oak adds a nice dimension. Only real faults are the lack of carbonation and a sometimes high level of sweetness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11 ounce pour - $8.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Viscous-looking, dark brown body with a slim, beige head.
Smell: Very thick malts with Eschatons of maltiness - notes of toasted bread, caramel, and butterscotch. Large grape-like scent here, coming across more like a large-sized snifter of port.
Taste: Presents a super sweet maltiness, pouring caramel and butterscotch sauce over bready, toasty, full-on chewy malts. A pass of port reduction with a hint of spice peering through the sugars. Spoonful of fruit chutney for a bit more, well, fruitiness. Warming and picking up more and more port-like tones on the heavy finish.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.
Overall: This one’s sweet, succulent, and a real slow sipper.

Growler from Crafty Draught. Dark reddish brown, thin tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, plum, and loads of vanilla oak. Creamy textured. Full flavored.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from Hop City. Pours a dark, cloudy, ruby color with a thin head. The aroma is dark fruits, black pepper, molasses, and a little ripe bananas. The flavor is very sweet, and a little spicy. The palate is heavy, sticky, and the carbonation is light but lively. The finish is long and stickily sweet, with a little alcohol warming. Overall, this is surprisingly good, for an American made Quadrupel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Trapeeze Pub - Pours dark brown with smaller head. Nose of dark fruits and molasses. Taste is of dark ripe fruit with brown sugar with a cognac quality. Fairly complex. The booze was only moderately hidden. This may very well be the biggest beer coming out of Georgia at the moment. Quite good.
