Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a large beige head that lasts awile leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a strong tart fruit and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel with a light sour fruit and spicy finish. Hides alcohol well, a very good quad.
Sampled at 2011 RBWG. Pours cloudy near black with a light tan head. The nose is roast and yeast. The taste is ash, chocolate, burnt malt. Medium mouthfeel. 3.7 50belair (3682) - Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle thanks to Hopscotch. Over carbonated. Dark brown pour with a huge mocha head. Vinous aromas. Vinous overtones with with caramel malt subtones. Good body and mouthfeel. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
750mL thanks to t0rin0. 2010 edition. Pours inky black with latte foam. Looks like a stout over quad. Nose is sour stout like with cranberries, cocoa, phenols. Taste is really nice- not sour- but dry and dusty with cranberry and hefty stout bitterness. Palate is powdery, dry, dusty but enjoyable. Doesn’t show any abv. Impressive.

Amazing sour beer, thanks to WomenCantSail and GT2’s beer tasting, very dark, looks like a stout, but a delicious sour beer, strong and amazing. BelgianBeerGal (4160) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle from ericandersnavy that is probably about 2.5 years old. Age did not touch this beer because it was still very bold. This was a big, dark, fruity, sugary, roasted beer but it never really struck me as a true quad. I liked it, but there was a lot going on in this glass. Even a hint tart funk, especially in the aroma. Very interesting.

Label says, "Raisins, Elderberries, Sage, Wormwood, Yarrow, Brettanomyces". I’ve been holding on to this for two years and I just can’t wait any longer.
It’s very dark for a quad, practically black with a light brown colored head. Wow, this is a great-smelling and inviting beer. It has a very complex, intense, alcoholic, roasted, fruity... did I say, "complex," beer? The flavor is wickedly delicious. I wish I had more of this. I think I’m going to visit this brewer personally and thank him. It’s sweet, sticky, perfectly alcoholic and exceptionally spiced... just enough to give it depth without taking the stage. I don’t dare to describe this in detail - almost like I’m not worthy to do so. It’s freaking awesome. That’s all I have to say. Finishes clean, roasted, sweet, alcoholic, softly spiced... and, again, I aged this for two years. My advice: if you have a bottle of this, please age it two years. No more, no less. God, this is good. Damico (3150) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Oh my God a quad. Pours dark brown amber muddy with a beige head. The aroma is light roasted malt and cocoa, barely Belgian yeast. Flavor brings some Belgian yeast and aged yeasty malt flavors that may have died down. There is a bit of sweet chocolate malts too on the backend. anders37 (27074) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Has a roasted malty chocolate spicy yeasty aroma. Roasted malty slightly sour chocolate flavor. Has a roasted malty woody chocolate finish. JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle. Deep bark brown pour. Dark fruits, raisin, prune, light tart sourness, earthy, toffee, and brown sugar. An interesting beer.
