4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle with a bottled on date of 12/2014.
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.
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.
