Aged on cedar planks soaked in dark rum, the first thing that will strike you about this beer is the spicy cedar nose. Notes of figs and ripe fruit will delight you before the rich Belgian spiciness coats your tongue. The lingering aromas and flavors of cedar and rum stick with you until your next sip. SRM 61

22. Thanks a! Pours nearly black with a loose dark tan head. Cola and black walnuts on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Warm biting cola and walnuts on the nose. Long hot dry finish.

Notes of strong raisin and brown sugar, definitely get the rum and boozey notes plus soft cedar and strong belgian yeast spiciness. Dark brown pour, thin tan head. Sweet up front, strong brown sugar and raisin presence followed by rum notes, a soft cedar spiciness and a dose of sweet spicy phenolic belgian yeast in the finish. Lingering boozey heat. Not entirely unpleasant, perhaps a tad sweet.

BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
A: Poured a deep brownish purple color with red and crimson highlights with a small tan cap S: Loads of dark fruit, big sugary sweetness, light rum and almost no cedar T: Has a big dark fruit, candy sugary sweetness and loads of residual sugar. A bit syrupy a little rum, not much on the cedar. M: Thin bodied, over carbonated, cloyingly sweet O: I detect a young beer with sweet residual sugar, gassy and I barely finished this beer.

Not sampling from proper glass, but hard to distinguish any aroma. Opaque brown color, no head or lacing. Thin body for color. Alcohol flavor at the forefront, with some acidity and black malt in the background. Balance actually isn’t too bad; not too sweet. Overall flavor is a bit too "homebrew-y." Just a hint of Belgian yeast mustiness, but it finishes tasting just a bit off. Being local to my area, I’m looking forward to future efforts from this brewery, but this is not a beer I would be eager to drink again.

Idk if the stratofortress just filled my need for a dark ale but this beer was very good. Extremely unique flavor. Light yet dark. Gonna have this for a while.

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Tap @ Red Hot and several other occasions. Hazy brown pour with a short beige head with decent retention and minimal lace. Nose is Belgian malt, chocolate and dark fruit. Medium body and light, sharp carbonation. Cherry dark chocolate, toffee, dark fruits and a well-hidden ABV (in older batches, new batches tend to have more EtOH burn, though all samples leave a nice stomach warmth). Finish is sweet and short, with some peanut and milk chocolate aftertaste. Less cloying than most quadrupels/BSAs, very quaffable. A sleeper for ABV and my favorite permanent Wingman ale.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big alcohol and Belgian yeast aroma. Nice deep rich malt flavor fruit like and light hops flavors. Awesome dry yeasty finish this was a super Strong ale. Loved this beer for Winterfest.
