Surpringly sweet here. Lots of caramel and nuts in this one. I’d like this a lot more if it weren’t so sweet.

Growler from The Beer Growler. Pours dark brown, little to no head. Full-bodied, good mouth feel. Lots of dark fruit (raisin, prune, etc) gives the beer a lot of sweetness, also molasses, brown sugar. Slight vinous quality. Just a tad boozy, but not bad for such a big beer. Finish is a little bready. Very tasty, if not something that I could drink lots of in one sitting.

Aromas of raisin, more raisin and dark fruit, and some malt on the palate. surprisingly dry and sessionable considering the abv. Overall solid effort.

This is a really nice beer. Chocolate malt and a nice cocoa texture. Some prune and molasses in the aroma. Some vanilla favors. Nicely complex and very drinkable. Impressed by the local guys.

Growler from Hop City Atlanta. Pours dark brown with bubbly carbonation on the glass and a small tan head. Smoky, malty nose with a hint of spiciness. Taste is very sweet with a malty richness and a background of chocolate and spiciness. Alcohol is present but not overwhelming. A bit sticky and gooey-but in a good way. One of better American quads I’ve had.

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.

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.
