Savannah, Ga. - Whole Foods Market - 11.2 oz bottle. Chestnut brown pour, long lasting, silky off-white head that sticks around a while. Pleasant, but not overly omnipresent aroma with some light dates, a hint of molasses. Solid flavor that leans to the sweet side with some hints of dates, a brief taste of sweet cherries, some subtle chocolate notes and a wee bit of alcohol. Nice sticky mouthfeel. Pretty solid, expect just a tad more from a quad though.

Bottle shared downtown during RBWG 2014 - Asheville Late-Nite. Cheers! Pours clear amber with a bubbly, off-white head. Rich malts in the nose, figs, ripe fruits. Big sweet flavor with robust bready malt character, dates, moderate toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish, with sticky sugars, ripe fruits, brown sugar, toffee, plums. Ticks all the quad boxes. Solid overall.

Aroma of malt with hints of prunes. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a thin short lasting tan head with some lacing. Sweet malt taste with hints of fruit and cheese. Relatively flat with a medium body feel and a sweet malt finish.

8/11/15. On tap at Craft on Draft. Light amber pour, copper maybe, under a nice thick khaki head, good lacing. Nice aroma, some brown sugar, dark fruits, caramel, light Belgian yeast aspect, not getting much of the oak aspect. Nice flavor, sweet entry with dark fruits, brown sugar, candi sugar, caramel, dark fruits, Belgian yeast, light oak bite. Not bad.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a cloudy amberish brown with light caramel head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of raisin, plum, and mild notes of Belgian yeast. Some caramel too. Tastes like it smells with a smooth medium full-bodied mouthfeel that drinks easier than 10.5%. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Murky deep amber pour with a small light cream head. Aroma is dark fruit, red wine - but not terribly strong. Taste is boozy right away, then kind of a blend (borderline muddled) of dark fruit, vanilla, more sweetness probably coming from the booze). This isn’t bad, but it just doesn’t seem to pull together all that well either.

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.
