A Quadruple Ale brewed with a blend of Belgian ale yeast and our house ale yeast. Woodcut No. 5 presents a rich, spicy, dried fruit essence and a deep auburn color.

Sampled at DLD 2013. Thanks Strykzone. It poured a dark reddish/brown color. The aroma was of dried fruits and a decent amount of oakiness. The taste was nice, light sweetness and more dark fruits and a decent amount of booze. Good stuff.

The first of many beers at a shared bottle tasting at Dark Lord days brought by Sttrykzone. Poured dark brown, with tan head. Nose of ripe fruit.s. Medium body. Flavor of dark roasted malts and oak notes. Finishes with vanilla. Very nice.

Sampled at Dark Lord Eve. I got it from Dice. Dark tea color with a different looking head. Vanilla, rich malts, and complex fruot is smelled. The fruit is tasted first. Alcohol, too. This is big and has lots of flavor.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2013
750ml from the Fort Collins posse. Not one of the best of the Woodcut series, and thats not just because it varies overmuch from quad expectations. Its just that it doesnt quite come together. Dingy brown pour but well carbonated, leaving some sticky lacing as youd expect. Nose is intially fragrant toffee malts and oak, then some vinous notes. Mouthfeel was too sticky for me, and lacked the elegance and balance of some of the superior examples of the style. Taste was a bit imbalanced too, with a candy core leaning sometimes too far in the direction of port and elsewhere to wheatwine. Okay, I guess but not what Id hoped for.

Very hazy dark red beer. A few pale tan bubbles for a residual and short lived head. Smooth palate with low carbonation. Semi dry. Rich and fruity quad! Tangy dark fruits and caramel malt with the familiar rich vanilla and oak. Pretty well joined up. Dry finish with a tangy fruit linger. Could have been really good but the beer is too flat.

Rich aroma of vanilla and raisin. Dark amber colored with no head. Tastes like a barley wine and quad hybrid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gription79 (2885) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. No carbonation at all. Hot alcohol notes, fruity, plum, raisin, very dry. No balance at all. Carbonation wood help this I am sure. Footbalmed! (drain pour)

Bottle - Pours rosy amber with a ring of white head. Nose is sweet--brown sugar, raisin, bready malt, and a general dark frutiness. Taste is about the same--lots of sweetness and dark fruit, with some yeasty breadiness. Fairly thin, with light, gentle carbonation.
