355 ml bottle poured at home. Day 6 of the beer advent calendar. Pours a dark ruby red with a beige head. moderate lacing. At first smell I thought I got apples but after it smelled more like some other quads, mostly cherries, spice and alcohol. Taste is quite strong, but it works. Picking up sweet notes (cherries) but has a strong alcohol finish. This is quite good.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2015
CBAC day 6...drinks more like a barleywine than a quad... Nice aromas of rich caramel, dark dried fruits, caramelized sugar, dates and a light alcohol...never got though. Taste is the same with a silky smooth finish and a nice alcohol warmth on the finish... Notes of dates and currents stand out... Great beer from a great brewery!

355ml bottle. (10.1% ABV) 2015 vintage, from 2015 Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a slightly hazy ruby with a thin, short lived, off-white head. Sweet aroma of overripe fruit, caramel malt, yeast and mild spice. Sweet flavour of dark, overripe fruit, caramel malt, brown sugar, spice and yeast with a dry, boozy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Better than expected. A pleasant surprise.

Lagerboy (2004) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2015
355 ml bottle, 2014 vintage, 10.1%. Unclear deep copper, fading off-white foam. Aroma of dark fruits and spice. Taste is sweet and rich, caramel, toffee, dark fruitiness, some chocolate later on, no bitterness. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, low hopped. Nice enough, certainly not worth a novel.
