Copper currency. Rich, doughy malts, sweetened fruits, sugars and yeast in the aroma, giving a hint of peanut butter and bubble gum. Perhaps a hint of herbs in the aroma as well. Phenolic and fairly subtle tasting, with a light flavor overall considering its style and potency as well as several strange flavors, including plastic. Bright, spicy yeast flavors, with hints of cinnamon. The flavors are not really cloying like it is for some folks, but it isn’t as juicy and flavorful as the best Quads.

On tap at RNH. Pour is hazy amber with a very small white head. Aroma is heavy towards with malts - honey, fruits, white wine. Similar taste but more pronounced. Sort of a mix between a barley wine and a quad, not bad. kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Pours to a lovely dark orange and orange-ish head. Smell has some fruit and lots of yeast, but also surprisingly earthy - don’t care much for that element. Taste is sweet, almost artificially so. Some spice also. Malty finish. Feel like I should be tasting something more complex in this quad, but it isn’t there. Gets a little better the longer it sits in the fridge, but still not a wower. 10% ABV makes sense - neither feel this one too strongly nor feel like it’s less. Doesn’t compare to Boulevard’s Sixth Glass - maybe more comparable to Schlafly’s quad. Not what I’d recommend to quad starters. RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle poured into trappist. Appealing brown color with red/purple tint. Aroma isn’t quite as complex as I expected. I pick up lots of dark fruits, a hint of booze, red win, and tons of currant. Aroma leads me to believe this will be very sweet. Taste, while not amazing, outshines the nose. A nice boozey front gives way to a cloying, sweet finish. More plum, currant, and fig with a nice touch of spice near the end. Not bad, but nothing to write home about. conway (2210) - - OCT 7, 2012
Poured ruby/copper with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sweet and nutty. Taste is the same but dark fruits and alcohol become more prominent.

Dark amber ruby with minimal head retention. Dark fruit aroma. Light bodied with lingering alcohol taste. Some banana notes that finish the palate.

Pours a nice brownish color, like iced tea, with a thin tan head. Aroma of fruit and spice. Tastes of cherry with a sweet brown sugar hint. Spicy but not over powering. Malty and smooth. Bordering on too sweet. Not bad. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Bomber. Deep, hazy copper with a tan head. Dark sugar and tart aromas. Similar flavors with some alcohol burn. EcnarM (112) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Hints of cherry in both the aroma and taste. Pours a deep amber color with minimal head. Solid offering without being outstanding at any particular aspect.

Draft at Rocketcity Brewfest. Light amber with thin brown head. Aroma of light Belgian notes (clove and some banana) with a light sweetness. Heavy body, candy sugar sweetness, malt, and and some light fruit notes with a sweet finish.
