Peach, plum, grape jelly, sherry, burnt caramel, honey, dried papaya. Pretty solid but leaning more towards barleywine than quad in feel.

Aroma is rich with fruity belgian esters and some caramel. Beautiful red beer with huge tan head. Sweet thick viscous beer, almost like a barley wine. Little plum character. Medium to full bodied. Very nice, but not too hoppy beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a hazed dark orangish brown appearance with a bubbly brown head. Brown sugar and toffee in the nose with some dark fruit notes (plums, figs) and some herbal notes as well. Kind of spicy yeast in the aroma. Pretty boozy flavor. Flavor is like a burnt sugar cookie with raisins. Pretty sugary sweet. Lots of dark fruit flavors. Some chocolate as well. A touch of smoke. Slightly oxidized. Finishes pretty strong. I’ve been pretty impressed with To Øl of late, but this was just a bit too much for my liking.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Ørsted Ølbar, Copenhagen. Pours a murky light mahogany bidy with a large off-white head. Nose is caramel, toffee, candi sugar, coca cola and hints of burnt sugar and mild grains. Taste is candi sugars, caramel, burnt sugar and hints of bitter herbs. Full body, high carbonation. Like an American barley wine more than a quadrupel, but nice enough.
