3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taste courtesy SoLan. Pours a muddy brown with a thin tan head. Malty caramel sweet and candy sugar aroma. Sweet malty taste, lots of candy sugar, with citrusy hops and just a hint of apple. Very good big beer, yet dangerously drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a murky amber brown. Aroma has some maple, toffee, brown sugar and mild dark fruits. Flavor is sweet with brown sugar, maple, without much dark fruit character. Has some nice roasted Belgian malts into the finish. Pretty nice, as far as US Quads go (which I tend to rate harshly).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a deep brown color with a very nice fluffy white to slight off-white head. Lacing was less than expected given the head. The aroma was caramel and some spices, fruity, somewhat like a Christmas-time Belgian Ale. The flavor followed suit, some brown sugar, caramel, cinnamon, other spices, some light roast (v. faint touch of peat). Mouthfeel was smooth, finished with a touch of bitterness (hops or spices?), maybe a touch acidic. Not bad, not excellent, decent.

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.
