Right on with a very quizical nose. Gasoline? Funk? Along with the usual suspects. Coffee, toffee, caramel on the palate. Mild carbonation, bubble bath foamy head hang time minute plus on the pour. Really nice taste, and slightly sticky mouthfeel. ABV hits you after, not during the drink. No booze in the aftertaste. Nice job Alesmith!

daleharshman (1054) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 21, 2014
750 ml bottle purchased about 13 months ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($13.99). Opens a near-gusher then pours a lovely garnet hue with almost three fingers of crackling tan foam. AROMA of buttered dark bready malts, rich toffee, sticky dark fruit, port wine, Belgian yeast, with noticeable tangy spice. FLAVOR of rich toffee and caramel, sweet grains, raisin and holiday candied fruit, a little chocolate, brown sugar, and finishing with some spice. A fair amount of sweetness as I would hope for in a quad, but far from cloying. The huge alcohol is well concealed, though does have a very noticeable warming effect. Overall the beer has a lighter mouthfeel than the 12% would imply. Another excellent anniversary effort from the always great Alesmith, and one of the best American-made quads I have had. (134, 844)

Pours deep mahogany into a Trappist glass. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Molasses, brown bread and dark alcohol-soaked pit fruit aromas. Sweet caramel and clove upfront turning hot raisin brown bread and chocolate in the lasting finish.

MrHangover (4193) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle, thnx to bytemesis. Really looking forward to this one. Pours a clear brownish beer with a very small tanned head on top. Aroma is quite boozy, very malty, light chocolate, malty and touches of caramel and Belgian yeast. Flavor is sweet, boozy, defintely some age detected, Very complex full bodied beer. Very nice stuff!!
