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. LilBeerDoctor (4235) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Bottle from the Wilmington brewpub. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet candi sugar, soda, dark fruits. Flavor of roasted malts, toffee, soda, lots of malt, and yeast. Thick mouthfeel. Decent quad, but I think I would have liked this fresher.

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma has soft dark fruits of fig and plum with a bit of roastiness And faint leather. The flavor has similar fruity notes up front before roasty malts give way to notes of cocoa and mild earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, earthy/leathery finish. Tasty! jsquire (4674) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2007
At the 07 RBSG grand tasting. Fizzy brown head over a brown beer. Nose of corriader and cat box. Sweet grains, ripe plum, raisen toast and juicey friut sweetness. It bloomed as it warmed. Interesting beer, but I wouldn’t call it a quad. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2008
