Strange beer. Had a beautiful rusty brown color with white head and nice lacing. The aroma was heavy booze, reminiscent of hot buttered rum. Nice cherries, tobacco, and brown sugar. Very warming. The mouthfeel was flat and grainy, like the bitter part of the pecan. eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2013
22oz, thanks again Dad! Pours orange/amber with a light Carmel colored head. Nice lacing on the glass. Aromas of candied fruits, cherry, booze, burnt sugar, and a touch of estery spice. The flavor is mild and somewhat of a letdown. Caramel, candied fruit, light spice, and warming alcohol for the flavor. This tastes somewhat like a homebrewed stron ale that I made before years ago. Nice carbonation and easy to drink dispite the abv. Confusing beer DialSquare (5198) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bomber over at Brett’s house. Dark brown pour with slight head. Aroma is sweet dark fruit and sugar. Tastes are caramel malts, floral, toffee, cherry, earthy. Didn’t do much for us. jsquire (4722) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Amber color with a thin sticky beige head. Fruity nose with lots of alcohol. Boozy beer with raisins, rich cherry, cocoa and alcohol. I didn’t really get any coffee out of here. Very white sugar sweet. A bit thinner that the quads from Belgium. This beer leaves a hot alcohol burn on the tongue. bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Pours a ruby umber color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is sweet maraschino cherries,cough syrup and dates. On the palate its a lot of the same with a weirdly boozy cough syrup flavor with notes of cherry syrup, date and a sticky mouthfeel. Just overdone.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 Rusty Brown with minimal aroma. Taste is sweet with Apple and pear esters and a cloying "homebrew" fermentation character. stantheman (1128) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2013
On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. A deep bronze color with a bit of whitish head. Fruits on the nose. The taste is complex and fruity, with hints of aromatic spice, perhaps clove. A very decent quadrupel, but not a great one. I guess my perfect quad would be Trappistes Rochefort 10. forthebirds (31) - - SEP 9, 2013
medium-heavy body, brown red, cloudy, cherry, coffee, tobacco, warm, sweet, thick and bold. CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
(Pint) Sampled at the New Belgium post-GBCF2013 party at Irish Times. Pours a lasting white frothy head with a deep mahogany body. Highly bubblegum nose. Crazy this isn’t a quad - full of marshmallow aroma and the flavour is a full palate of sweet malt. Good. WheatKing (1351) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - SEP 8, 2013
Sampled at the GCBF 2013 industry afterparty. Deep copper, offwhite head. Nose of alcohol, soft malt, petrol... still deserves a seven in my notes, somehow I like petrol... flavour is very rich, alcohol, dark fruit. Heavy mouthfeel, medium carbonation.
