3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Average frothy offwhite head. Fair lacing. Mostly diminishing. Muddy small-particled thick dark amberish-brown body. Aroma: heavy malt, caramel, dark chocolate, raisin, red wine and alcohol. Initial flavor: moderate sweet light acidic moderate bitter; long duration. Palate: light medium body, watery/oily texture, light astringent heavy alcoholic finish. dulçor maltado lembra chocolate ao leite e frutas secas. Leve acidez lembrando ameixa fresca atenua muito bem o dulçor que caso contrário seria enjoativo. Delicioso sabor, na media das melhores do estilo. Forte aquecimento alcoólico. Principal falha surge na textura, que deveria ser cremosa, de acordo com as BJCP. Baixa drinkability devido ao alto teor alcoólico, que não é mascarado. Quase na segunda metade da taça, com o ganho de temperatura, o amargor de lúpulo torna-se mais evidente, ajudando mais ainda a equilibrar o dulçor da cerveja. 140 s

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours dark hazelnut brown, medium opaque, with a medium tan foam, syrup, and subsiding to a ring. Scent is medium caramel old ale, maybe Scotch ale. Brown sugar. Light cinnamon notes. Taste is dense Bourbon barrel scotch ale properties, some spiciness, and a lingering, slightly sticky, slightly ethanol body. Great.

Full-bodied, very sweet yet balanced by a dry finish. A bit lacking in aroma maybe but full tasting and warming. Take your time with this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Pours clear dark amber with a head that promises a sticky texture. Strong malts are present in the aroma, but not as fruity or harmonic as other quads. Heavy and sticky, but as others pointed out, unusual bitterness in the back of the tongue. Sweetness dominates everywhere else though, also on the palate. There it feels more like a barley wine though. Makes for an experiment worth trying, but when it comes to beers of this weight, I prefer others.

Big and harsh, and definitely not a quad... And can’t really be reviewed as such. As an American barleywine, this is a good effort, but it’s a bit rough around the edges for me.

Bottle, pours brown with an off white head. Aroma: nuts, brown sugar, dried figs, cinnamon, vanilla. Taste follow with more dark fruit, citrus hop, red fruit, nut meg. Bittersweet, soft and creamy, light boozy notes. Quad meets american barley wine and I like it.
