Poured from the bottle into a small glass at a beer tasting. The beer had a complex aroma featuring a mix of bubble gum, apricot, cherry, and date, along with some more basic floral and fruity hops, and a wet barley malt effect too. It was a hazy, rusty copper color and somewhat cloudy, with an average-sized foamy white head with shorter retention, but good lacing and average cling. The beer had a very sweet crisp taste with strong sweet fruity flavors, bits of molasses and cherry, and a light sour finish. It was a pretty lively beer, with a thinner but good mouthfeel, and was a touch on the dry side with a strange coffee-like after-effect. patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2013
tap at Dash In - Pours lightly hazy amber with a small lingering head. The aroma is of yeast and dark fruit. It has a sweet flavor with some obvious alcohol presence. Dark fruit and caramel are apparent. It’s medium to full bodied and very good though as a fan of quads I was hoping for a bit more. emacgee (4711) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 13, 2013
Soft orange copper pour with one finger of khaki tan had. Lots of candy in the nose with some capsiacin and rusty/grainy notes. Light malty sweetness and almost peppery character. Touch of coffee. Steverus0 (332) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - APR 13, 2013
Beautiful in the glass with a rich, creamy head, the beer pours an opaque red mahogany. Nose is rich and slightly tart and hints of the depth of this brew. Pleasing on the mouth, on hinting at a more traditional quad as the deep cherries and tobacco linger. The depth is exquisite and begs for a second sip. Hints of vanilla and bourbon round out an immense profile, leaving a warm sensation in their place. Drink in the winter or a cool fall/spring night beside the fire.

The look is clear, amber in color, off white head. The smell is coffee, yeast, fruit, alcohol, malt, cleaner, and lime. The taste is fruit, spiced, yeast, fruit, veggies, alcohol, and ok. rougeau13 (3280) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2013
Pours murky amber-brown with an off-white head and some nice lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, toffee, nuts, tobacco, and leather. The taste is sweet malts and fruit and a bit of booze with some nuttiness. It’s actually a little rough. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - APR 12, 2013
22 oz. bottle- Pours hazy orangeish ruby red with a one finger creamy cream colored head. Aroma is mildly fruity, chocolate, plums and cherries. The taste is the same, with a strong alcohol burn, chocolate covered cherries, dates, not getting much of the coffee, other berries. I liked this, it could have hidden the alcohol burn a little better, would have been better in a smaller bottle, now I have to finish this whole 22 oz bottle.

Pours rose’-brown with a minimal. light tan head..
Nose is raisin, cherry, chocolate, coffee....
Taste is dried fruit, slight alcohol bitter...
A plastic/vinyl vibe to it.
A little wood.
More like an old ale to me.
Decent, but rather forgettable. blipp (9929) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Big dark fruity notes, sweet malts, rum cake, and fresh bread. A little boozy. Good stuff.
