Sampled from bottle @ the some people are tired tasting (after borefts 2013 day 1). Hazy orange to light brownish color, small off - white head. Smell and taste malts, alcohol, sweetness, wood. A bit too much alcohol I’d say but not bad at all. Scopey (15725) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle at Delirium RJ. It pours dark brown, with a large off-white head. The nose is sticky dark fruit, wood, sherry, jam and booze. The taste is raisin, plum, currant, wood, varnish, nut, sherry, jam, with a very boozy finish. Full body, lively carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Pretty tasty, but too much alcohol warmth.

Bottle obtained in a trade with FlavioSP. Thx! 375 ml. bottle split with Benzai @ the some people are tired tasting. Hotel post day #1 @ Borefts 2013. Corked & caged bottle. Pours a fox brown orange with no head at all. Nose is very sweet, oxidized caramel malts, sweet liquid cane sugar, quality alcohol, thick wood, marmalade in the nose. Taste is thick orange peel, lots of liquid cane sugar, warming, oxidized very thick caramel malts, toffee, brown sugar, thick jam, slight strawberry, warming, boozy in a good way, prunes,… Sticky caramel malts body & basically no carb. at all. Very nice & original barley wine, just not a quad. MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This round Quadrupel’s profile of caramel, cloves, oranges and licorice builds with every sip, almost balanced out by earthy hop bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the orange-hued dark brown.
-A prevalent fruitiness is also akin to plums and raisins.
-This might be a tad too sweet for my preference in the style, but it remains a very nice spicy sipper.
-This is not one of those Quads which derives most of its flavors through malts and yeast. Spices are quite prominent throughout.
