Bottle thanks to eaglefan538: Pours a clear dark ruby mahogany with a fine-lacing wispy off-white head. Aroma of sweet, doughy caramel malt and light fruity esters with some Belgian yeast. Starts with good fullness and dark caramel malty sweetness along with a mild milk chocolate and brown sugar character toward a doughy, yeasty finish. A nicely balanced and fairly complex brew.

25 oz bottle, from first release, 2007 I believe. Pours a clear dark amber body with a large frothy beige head that retained as a one finger deep lump of cream. Huge heavy dark fruit nose with moderate alcohol. Plum, caramel, figs, very rich. The flavor is not as sticky and sweet as I was expecting. Still fruity, full of figs and plum but not sweet. Very minimal alcohol. This actually seems pretty dry and a bit dusty on the finish. I dont think that Ive ever had an American Quad that was so well attenuated and drinkable. Medium bodied with moderate clinginess up front. Very little warmth to the alcohol. This is one of the best beers that Ive had from Iron Hill.

Bottle: The aroma consists of grape, yeast, raisin, faint chocolate, and moderate alcohol that increases as it warms. It pours a hazy reddish-brown with minimal transparency and a moderate tan head that lasts a minute or so. The flavor starts with grape and yeast with some faint chocolate. There is strong candi sugar presence in the middle. There is some faint caramel in the background. It finishes with noticeable alcohol, light spice, and faint floral bitterness. The mouthfeel is full with some lively prickly carbonation that takes some time and swirling to mellow out.

Poured a hazy, mahogany color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries, cocoa, caramel malts, tropical fruits, peat smoke, with some light alcohol as well. Taste of more caramel, rum soaked raisins, plums, light citrus, vinous, with a dry, yeasty finish, with a touch of smoke, and a bit of alcohol as well.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle. Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of raisins, oak, chocolate, some bitter hints. Taste balances bitter with sweet nicely. Lots of chocolate and coffe hints present as are fruit and sweet malty characteristics. While this does not taste like an abt or quad, it is a very good beer.

Suttree (6325) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Not very carbonated, so not much head. Odd aroma - cinnamon and coffee, I guess. First sip indicates it may be a bit past its prime - some stale, cardboardy notes. Some smokey notes, some winey notes. Slightly boozy finish.

Copper pour with off white head and lace. Aroma is brown sugar, cardboard and Belgian yeast. Cough syrup and cardboard flavor. Thin watery and no carbonation.

750ml bottle picked up by Dean with gift cards I got for Christmas, sorry I rated it without you buddy. Poured a nice looking super deep reddish/mahogany brown with a head size greatly determined by the vigorousness of the pour, mine had an average sized light beige creamy head with a rather vigorous pour. Aroma started off with some sharp sweetness like dark fruits and sugars in some fresh wort. With time some light dark alcohol notes like sherry appear along with brown bread dough, raisins, prune, plum, sugary chocolate and Belgian yeast. Body is a touch thinner than expected with a medium mouthfeel and average yet very bubbly carbonation and a long lingering aftertaste. Flavor is more chocolaty than I was expecting, light burnt malts, dark fruit skins, Belgian yeast, dark burnt sugar. Good beer, complex and big.

In short: A lifeless, sweet, very fruity and boozy Belgian dark age. Meh.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed about 2 year after it was bottled.
The look: Partly cloudy dark burgundy body. The small beige head dissipates into nothingness after only a few seconds
In long: Nose is sweetened fresh dark fruits. Taste has lots of raisins, fresh prunes, candi sugar, kids barley candies. All quads are sweet but some hide their sweetness more than others. Here the sweetness was very apparent and alcohol wasnt too well hidden either. Carbonation was sparse and the mouthfeel was far from lively. I took this bottle with me to a bring-your-own-wine restaurant. I drank the whole thing because it was a long dinner and I didnt bring another bottle. So it is not totally undrinkable. But have I been at home I would not have finished this bottle and I would have opened something else. And I paid $20 for this stuff?!?!? Ok, so they screwed me up. But I wont forget, and certain not forgive them. Revenge is a dish best served with hot peppers (NOT cold), it hides the taste of the cyanide.
