Imperial pint can, 2015 vintage. Sweet candi syrup aroma with notes of banana, clove, currant and Belgian yeast. Pours dark caramel colored with a thin tan head that has little retention and some lacing. Starts with sweet candi sugar, toffee malt and a little bit of current flavors. Finishes very smooth with note of flambeed banana, clove and spicy Belgian yeast as well as a bit of booze. Really wonderful quad.
On tap at Hops & Pie. Deep ruby reddish and clear appearance with a light tan head. Aroma of candy sugar, caramel malt, light toffee, Belgian yeast, light vinous notes and hints of dark fruits. The flavor is similar to the aroma, adding a light spiciness with a full body and a light boozy finish. It’s an enjoyable offering overall, but fairly average within the style for me. jazz88 (2684) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 30, 2015

RATING #5800. Clear deep amber with a persistent light beige foamy top. Boozy nose with some bourbonny brown sugar and raisin and date and some slight Apple fleshy tones. Big palate with a nice quad flavor of Apple, date,raisin, bourbon nuance, slight dark rum, and a dark Belgian maltiness. Somewhat straightforward but also pretty complex. Would probably age majestically. Really nice.
