> High boost chocolate covered strawberry style Quad

[ Bottle ][ 750mL ][ Jank Bottle Shop Solana Beach ][ $17 ][ Crooked Stave Globe ][ 7.11.14 ]
>> Pours clear sepia core, deep red edges. Massive creamy yellow head. Nose is chocolate covered strawberry, vanilla, slight metallic, white chocolate mousse. Taste is dusty, metallic, papery, milk chocolate, rum soaked strawberry, milk chocolate covered strawberry. Rum cake finish. Its pretty damn good, just not my style: sweet, red, high boost. Cleans up as it warms, good stuff.

phaleslu (9800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2014
750 ml bottle shared by someone at the Baymont Jackie-Os release weekend bottle share. Thanks! Pours a dark amber color, mostly clear, with a small off-whtie head. Notes of caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, mellow spices, clove, molasses, boozy bread, vanilla, and chocolate. Medium-full bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, rich, full mouthfeel. Nice American take on a Belgian tradition.

750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a deep caramel brown color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma had sweet caramel, dark fruits, bready malt, yeast, candied sugar and toffee. The flavor is everything from the nosewith a fairly smooth mouth feel. While maybe not as complex as the Belgian versions, this is quite tasty.

marcus (9705) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle shared by oRos. Pours caramel with a thick beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a delicious raisin and toffee flavor with a mellow slightly bitter finish. A nice version of Decadence.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2013
750ml bottle, shared by tmoney99. Clear lighter brown color. Good thin off-white head, little lace. Bigger body. Lighter, smooth carbonation, kind of crisp. Some cinnamon, dark fruit, some wood. Spicy taste, light bitter, minimal sweet. Mostly spicy and light bitter. Nice cherry, little dates. Very good, complex flavor profile. Little warmth or bite, but that doesnt bother me at all. Super nice stuff. Would love to enjoy more than a sample of this.. Maybe in the future, with a bit of age

MartinT (9617) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 My Bottom Line:
Masterfully-sculpted raisins morph into dark chocolate stuffed with date sugar in this most elegant, succulent Quadrupel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the dark brown and its mahogany sheen.
-The aroma and flavor profile are so refined in this one; absolutely glorious definition.
-This may not be as effervescent as the Quads I know and love, but it doesnt detract from the pure pleasure of sipping to be had.
-The finish is pure malt bliss.

Bottles.
