12.7 oz. bottle from Party Source and consumed at home. Pours a hazy deep copper color with a thin creamy off white film. The aroma has quite a bit of fruits and caramel as well as more oak than in other batches and a touch of the alcohol. The flavor is more fruits, raisins, fig, caramel, quite a bit of oak, tannins and alcohol. There is some burn to the mouth feel that grabs my attention, but it seems a little dry compared to some of the other batches I’ve tried. Not much carbonation. madmitch76 (26850) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2014

Light haze on this deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Sweetish toffee - caramel malt. Dried fruits and raisins. Light and bitterish esters. Touch of fresher fruits before a semi dry finish. Another tasty and complex BA Quad.
Bottle - Sweet dark sugars, raisin, plum and some chocolate notes. Cloudy brown with no head. Dark sugars, raisin, plum, light sweetness, fig and very light barrel notes. Very nice and rich. Slight fruity tartness. Brilliant.. SVD (2275) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2014

Ruby red clear beer with little blonde head vanishing almost instantly. Pouring in the yeast makes it opaque brown. Aroma has sweet vanilla, burned sugar, figs, wood, some vineous sourness and some Belgian yeast. Pouring in the yeast adds some toffee sweetness. Flavor is sweet with burned sugar and vanilla. Also some sweet dessert wine kind of berryish sweetness. Some wood and yeast as well. Palate is thick with mild carbonation. Finishes with mild bitterness and some alcohol. Aftertastes of burned sugar and berryish dessert wine. One of those over sweet dessert beers. Not really as good as I was expecting. Habanero (4946) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear, amber with a medium sized, off-white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, citrus, vanilla, wood and yeaty notes. Sweet flavor that end up more dry with alcohol notes. Medium to full bodied, oilt texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Quad. bhensonb (16122) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours very hazy light brown with no head. Aroma of wood, darker fruits, maybe vanilla. Med + body. Extremely tasty and pleasant. Finishing woody, toffee, lightly grapey. Not dry, but it doesn’t need to be. marcus (10972) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle from Supermarket Liquors in Fort Collins. Pours murky brown with no head and a woody vanilla nutty aroma. There is a slightly sweet oaky caramel malt flavor with a bitter finish. The Malbec adds a toasty feel. Marduk (8829) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 5, 2014
