750ml. Bought Feb/13. Pours a clear dark caramel with an off white head. Aroma has big sweet notes of dark fruit, cherries, and a big, maltyness. Taste is sweet but not cloying. Dark fruits, with a bit of a creamyness. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Silky texture with a dry finish. Overall a tasty brew. Darker fruits with a nice sweetness. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2014
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Dark ruby pour with a thick tan head. Sweet dark fruits in the aroma with a ton of malt and a lot of prevalent alcohol. Sticky sweet plums and caramel at the start of the flavor with a strong alcohol burn still. Sweet malts and fruits with a dry and bitter finish. cgarvieuk (24462) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2014

Very rich and strong, as it should be. Dark fruits, sweet malts, no hops. But to me it was lacking the complexity that would turn it into a truly great beer. Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours brown with red hues. Aroma is figs, dark fruits, tobacco, molasses. Taste medium carbonation, plums, bitter finish, a pretty good beer.

Bottle, shared with my mate Barber, good work from him bringing this back from the US, as he isn’t a beer geek he did ok for me there. Pours dark brown with a thin pale brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, yeast, some sweet toffee hints.Quite enjoyed it, drank pretty well, just a bit touch much alcohol in the finish for me. arnold931 (1263) - Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2014 Bottle. Pours clear. Dark brown with ruby around the edges. Nose and flavor are typical dark fruits. Nice plum. Some alcohol burn. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2014
[Tap] Pint at Fat Jack’s in Bloomington, IL during a Sierra Nevada tap takeover. Brown pour with red highlights. Fizzy off white head. Raisin, fig and mild alcohol hints in the aroma. Darker malts, more fruit, toffee and brown sugar in the taste. Noticeable alcohol. A decent Quad. Tasting notes from 11/2011. b3shine (8870) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks decent; a fairly transparent dark copper with light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark fruit, Belgian yeast, and sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable. Patrickctenchi (6586) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2014
Pours hazy, slightly red- brown with a short beige head.
Cola, nuts, plum aromas.
Cherry, caramel malt, dark fruit flavours.
