750ml. bottle: This one opened with a loud "pop". It then had some overflow out of the bottle. This one poured a cloudy amber tinged drown color. Needless to say there was a fairly large tan head on it, but it died down rather quickly. The aroma is quite good. I hate to use typical, but it is very reminiscent of other good Quads that I have had. Dark fruits, raisins, yeast, lots of sweet malts to name but a few. The taste is complex, but there are some cherry, caramel and raisin notes up front. A hint of tartness in the finish. It is also a touch fizzy on the tongue. Very nice. I should have bought more than one. BOLTZ7555 (3028) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle acquired via trade with JAXSON...thanks Jeremy!!! Cork opened with a pop and flew across the room. Mahogany pour with a massive eggshell head with amazing retention and lacing. Cotton candy, dark fruit, belgian yeast, and tart cherry skin on the nose. Flavor is quite sweet with caramel, candied sugar, and raisin most dominant with the alcohol showing as well. Medium mouthfeel. bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2009

750 ml bottle. Tried several times, but I drank last night at a Iron Hill Chocolate and beer tasting. Poured murky brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, raisins, caramel, dark roast malts and toffee. Tastes is very complex with toffee, roasted chocolate, coffee, molasses, dark fruits, figs and so much more. Light alcohol warming in the finish, but overall really quite nice. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2009
