Sampled at the Slutfest. Weird. Chocolate and bubblegum? raisin and plum and brown sugar with some alc heat. Glad it’s in a can, cool name, but not that great of a brew. JaBier (7971) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2010
Can sample at a tasting. Pours clear amber with a medium beige head. Fruity and malty nose with caramel, yeast and some banana. Caramel malty flavor with bananas and a boozy finish. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2010
clear brown pour with wispy head. smells like a typical brown, with slight bread, earthy hops, and a touch of sugar. tangy, citrus hopped flavor that is overly sweet and barely appetizing. ugh sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2010
Can. Pours an almost dried blood color (go figure), small tan head. Malt, caramel, herbs and some subtle cherry notes in the background of both the nose and tongue. phaleslu (10277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2010
12 oz. can via trade with tytoanderso- thanks again, Tyler! Pours a semi-cloudy ruby-amber color with a rocky beige head. Aroma of cherries, chocolate, caramel malts, raisins, brown sugar, Belgian yeast, wood, vanilla, and hazelnut. Flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. Notes of Belgian yeast, caramel malts, alcohol, raisins, brown sugar, vanilla, banana, and metal. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Slightly acidic. Finish is earthy with notes of dark fruit, different than it is in the mouth. Dries the mouth out after a few moments. Nice quad.

355 ml can from Lubiere (merci!), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 18MR10.ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2010
App.: Murky deep mahogany with a decent tan froth.
Aroma: Very deep and fruity, lots of dark dried fruits, quite boozy, a fair hit of vanillin and wood, a funky, unpleasant organic acid note (liek bark), some minty herbals, messy overall.
Palate: Medium body and moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Quite fruity, somewhat nutty and boozy, still some minty herbals, a touch woodsy, plenty of booze, kinda harsh; off-dry with moderate-light bitterness, long malt finish with stinging alcohol.
This poured a dark amber with a finger of creamy head. Aroma has some raisins, licorice and candi sugar. Body is fairly rich and full, like a good quad should. The mouthfeel is also very smooth with extremely soft carbonation. Taste has strong dark fruit like raisin and plum. Burnt caramel sweetness is also quite prevalent on the aftertaste. This is an extremely well balanced quad. luttonm (6310) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2010
Can (cool). Dark red-brown pour with sour-wet-funk nose. Fig newtons. Body is a touch boozy but smooth. Dark mulled fruits, fig loaf. Sesame-nutty, some dry bittering but mostly wet, almost sour-red finish. I’ll buy the copper taste .. blood! blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2010
can, thanks to bu11zeye, almond color with short white foam, aroma is buttery sweet caramel, flavors are dark fruit, malty with some alcohol showing, plain finish daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2010
Can. Pours a nice brown color into Hellbilly’s grandfathers beer glass. Small off white head. Caramel, yeast, bread, light hops, and some alcohol in the nose. Flavor is strong with alcohol, but has a good bitter bite that balances both the alcohol and caramel malt flavor. Very good beer.
