Lots of florals and some raisin and prune. Nicely done. Pours hazy dark amber with decent head and lacing. Great balance. Hint of citrus. Sweet finish. Great quad, nicest one I’ve had in a while. Bottle shared by Travlr at tasting. Travlr (24307) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2015

Draft at maple shade. Pours out a cloudy darker amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of dark plums, dried fruits, caramelized sugar, and not much of a tell of the Abv. Taste is complex, lots of plum, caramel, raisin, fig, date, Sweet toffee, and some drying alcohol notes with a full body that could be pretty dangerous. tgncc (3130) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2013
From the brewpub in Phoenixville, PA. The aroma rises right right out of the bottle, a nice bouquet of dark fruit, bread, malts, candi sugar, light pepper. The appearance is a deep brown red, cream colored head. The flavor is sweet, malty, dark, ripe fruit, candi sugar, bread, really nice. The finish is sweet, than lightly spicy, pepper, pine. Medium/thick in body, syrupy mouthfeel. Nicely done. Typical for a quad, and a nice representation of the style. AdamChandler (4977) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 19, 2013
One of the first micro brews I ever bought knowing what it is was. Prior to this, I drank Sierra Nevada and Duvel. Picked up this 750ML in August of 2011 at Iron Hill Brewery. I think it was $12. Enjoyed in June of ’13 in a wine stemware. Poured a very dark, plum-like blood red with a small white head that faded to a thin line. Smell is pretty explosive. Sweet like cherries with currants and caramel. Frankly, more like a barleywine than a quad. Maybe it’s the aging? Very sweet up front, lots of bitter hops, finish is sweet and bitter. I get some figs, bready yeast There’s a hint of metallic aspects. Very candy-like. Not very boozy. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Amber with a white head. Aroma is full of toffee and bready malt. Flavor is toffee, sugar, yeast, dark fruit, raisins and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. closey22 (1915) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Deep hazy amber with rimming beige head aroma of strong malt flavor is malty yet nice bite of hops and alcohol reminds me of a barley wine YES! Feel thick and rich with some fizzy bite.
