Pours hazy deep amber with low off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar, dates, yeast, light cherry and light wood. Taste is light cherry sour initially before a heavy sugary alcohol sweetness. Finish is somewhat alcohol warming but a bit abrupt. Body is medium and creamy with soft carbonation.

Deep brown pour. Big off-white head. Tons of lacing paints the glass. Big notes of caramel and dark fruit. A bit of booze in the nose. Mostly raisins in the nose. Taste is hot, followed by a sweet, slick raisin note. Malty. Not bad. krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013

Bottle poured into glass. I generally like most of the Lips of Faith beers but this one didn’t wow me. Just sort of mellow and meh. Oh well, not every single one can be a winner. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Bomber from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy red-copper color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toffee, toast, candied cherries, mild citrus and earth. The taste is tart fruits, stone fruits, earth, toffee, banana. Medium bodied, lingering tartness. Odd, but decent.

Super sweet beer on tap at daily pint, big white head, frothy, overall a decent ale BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 24, 2013
This is a very big, very sweet beer. Almost cloyingly. Pours a clean amber with one finger of white head. Did I mention it is sweet? Plums on the nose. Some alcohol evident. jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 23, 2013
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast, dark fruits and light chocolate notes, a nice toffee and caramel maltiness, some light alcohol, and floral hops. Flavor the same with a decent blend of everything. Average texture. Not a bad beer but not the best of the style. superspak (6008) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2013
22 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, bottled in 2/2013. Pours hazy reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, prune, fig, pear, apple, banana, toast, chocolate, dark candi sugar, brown bread, clove, herbal, leather, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity esters with dark malt notes; and good strength. Taste of raisin, prune, pear, apple, fig, toast, chocolate, brown bread, leather, banana, dark candi sugar, herbal, clove, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of dark and light fruits, toast, chocolate, banana, brown bread, leather, clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity ester and dark bready malt flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Quadrupel style. Nice balance and complexity of fruity esters with dark bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. This improved a lot as it reached room temperature. A very enjoyable offering. PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Cloudy light brown with an inch of tan head which fades at a moderate decay to a film. Aroma is in between Leffe and phenolic American quads, so zesty yeast, light phenols, spice, light brown sugar, hint of fresh bread dough (not enough in my opinion). Body is medium. Flavor is similar to the aroma (next-day review, sorry). I don’t recall hops or caramel sticking out, and I could not pinpoint the coffee berries nor the dates, although the latter may have contributed to the clean light caramel/brown sugar sweetness. I think it deserves a higher rating than it’s got.
