750 ml corked and caged bottle brewed in 2005 pours a bright hazy reddish brown with a nice creamy light brown head that leave nice sheets of lace in my glass. Aroma of baked apple, plums and raisins. Chocolate, cherry and caramel flavors, full bodied with a creamy soft mouthfeel, finishes sweet and sour.
May 2016. Not my favorite quad. But easily drinkable. Alcohol is well hidden. Notes of rum soaked raisins and figs

Bottled 355ml. -from Beergium. Clear amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, brown sugar in the nose. Sweet malty, dried fruits, brown sugar, discreet touch of cherries and noticable alcohol with touch of dates. The finish is rather sweet. Nothing more nothing less than ok, expected much better one. beern (158) - Alabama, USA - AUG 31, 2017
Pours dark amber with a 2-finger tan head and an aroma of malt & a hint of wood. Tastes of malt and chocolate with a sweet hint of banana from the yeast. It's medium bodied with lively carbonation and well hidden alcohol. It's a slightly sweet chocolate banana ale with a dry finish. There is also a hint of sour/bitter cherry. kryon (3772) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2017

Pours a nice reddish bronze with a fluffy head. Aroma of dark fruits, cherry, candied malts, and booze. Taste is initially astringent alcohol forward but gives way to very complex cherry, plum, caramel malty flavors. Better as it warms. Slick carbonated mouthfeel. This is definitely a winner

2015 bottle via Rakuten. In color it is a deep brown with a beige head that dissipated super fast but it also has some pretty ruby highlights. The aroma is candied plums and stone fruits with a hint of berries. Full bodied which I like but sharply carbonated which I don’t as I prefer a smoother mouthfeel. That being said it is very common for the style.

The taste is rich malty sweet caramel with big berry and stone fruit notes plus some sharp booziness. Paired with the Caramel Tokyo Banana the beer really shines with the caramel becoming a chocolatey toffee like flavor and the beer’s sharp edges getting softened. Really good but I’d say you really should pair it with food for maximum enjoyment.
Three Philosophers: It has subtle connotations of communion wine and strong connotations of soy sauce. tricksta_p (4879) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2017
Bottle from a Safeways in San Francisco. Aroma is dark malt, caramel, yeast, dark bread, raisins, dark dried fruits, notes of chocolate, with a slight hint of cherries that I probably wouldn’t have detected if I didn’t know they were there. Flavour is sugary sweet and light bitter. Body is medium to full. Good Quad, lots of bold flavours, cherry is too subdued for my taste. Very enjoyable. bodybybeer (4) - - JUN 15, 2017 does not count
Overall good quad with just a touch of cherry finish that is very subtle but lingers on the palate in a good way.
