Not a lot of depth to this one. Lots of booze and unfermented sugar and caramel. Pours brown with decent head and lacing. Thin on aroma. Bitter and sweet finish. Bottle. kingaugusta (315) - Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2018
Pours hazy copper with a nice lingering tan lacing. Nose is like walking into a freshly opened bakery with a touch of oak and cinnamon. Flavor is sweet breads with a little wood, coriander, clove and alcohol. Finish is light bodied and slightly sticky. Very tasty and easy drinking for its strength. Bebum (1195) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 28, 2018
Full body, smooth texture, flavorful, hot mouthfeel, long aftertaste.
Sweet and sour, little bitterness.
Hoppy, herbal, malty, caramel, fruity.
Great balance, complex and challenging. Always enjoyable.

Market Square Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl. - 750 ml bottle - Valentines Day gift from wife. Pours a medium to dark copper with a thin, but long lasting slightly off-white head that leaves good sticky lacing. Sweet malty aroma, has notes of toffee, raisins, molasses and a wee bit of alcohol. Very warming flavor, has hints of toffee, chocolate, brandy and molasses. Gets better as it warms. 9.0% ABV hidden extremely well. Extremely smooth, creamy mouthfeel, warms the throat as it goes down. Very good Quad. Patrickctenchi (6867) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2018

Shared 750ml bottle. Pours a fairly clear amber-brown hue, with a light beige head. Aroma and taste of stone fruits, plums, raisins, Belgian yeast, spice, hints of oak, malt. Finish is a bit warming but not overpowering. Good. darbeer75 (1171) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2017
Aroma: fruity, malty, lots of plum; Appearance: dark amber pour with thin offwhite head; Taste: follows nose; not too cloying or oaky; a tad thin though; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: good but doesn't seem like a top 50. benpickens (556) - Camarillo, California, USA - DEC 26, 2017
Pours light brown with a compact porous head that doesn't hold well; fruitcake and port aromas; sweet palate with an alcohol burn in the finish. Nice.
