Very dark brown with a very fuzzy and non-exsistebt head. Powerful dark fruit, cherry, dark but not roasted malts, some light spice, a minor sharp fruit bite throughout. Medium carbonated body. Finish is tart cherry and ripe fruit. Very solid.

after the initial intriguing aroma, my enthusiasm waned a bit. a decent fruit forward BSA. The rum nites come through more than cedar. Sweet and complex...medium to full bodied, but a weak finish. Just pretty good.

Waxed bottle and served in snifter: Beautiful deep mahogany with a creamy beige head. Comes off very Quadruple like with notes of figs, dates and slightly acidic sour cherries in the background. Nice rum and cedar underpinnings alongside a slap of mocha and leathery earthiness. I am digging this much more than others it seems. Actually this benefits from not having a overly huge body, allowing the wood and yeast driven spices to shine.

A nice Belgian quad. Had the cedar planks version. Pours a beautiful deep black with a tan head. Smells of caramel, maple syrup, and malt. Taste is quite a bit different then the smell, quite malty, with caramel, some vinegar and maple syrup. An interesting piney taste from the cedar planks. Boozy finish. Had in the bottle.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks to Mike. The aroma is chocolate covered berries, it is rich and sweet. The flavor is chocolaty, light spicy notes, berries, dark stone fruits. The body is a bit thin for how big and rich this beer seems. Alcohol heat is noticeable in the flavor and warming in the finish. This is a tasty beer.

Dark brown, tan head. Aroma of dark bread, toasty malts, a little dark fruit, light rum note, cedar is complimentary but not strong. Flavor: Bready malt, toffee, nutty notes, dark fruit, cedar character is very light, light earthy spice, a little leather. Rich and complex soft maltiness is main impression.

Bottle:   Somewhat over bready example, figgy, some clove like spices.   Very much American like.   Slight smokiness on the backside.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Pretty dark in color.   Some anise as it warms.   Also becomes less bready.   For 11.4% its not alcoholic or heavy.   Spicy finish, clove and anise.   Doesnt seem like Cedar, or any wood for that matter.   Tiz okay, got better over time.   Still could be a little much as it does get fairly spicy at times.

Notes of strong raisin and brown sugar, definitely get the rum and boozey notes plus soft cedar and strong belgian yeast spiciness. Dark brown pour, thin tan head. Sweet up front, strong brown sugar and raisin presence followed by rum notes, a soft cedar spiciness and a dose of sweet spicy phenolic belgian yeast in the finish. Lingering boozey heat. Not entirely unpleasant, perhaps a tad sweet.
