3.33/5 rDev -15.7%
$ 5.99/11.5 oz bottle at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Bottle dated 1 4 at 40 degrees into chalice
Weak aroma of malt and yeast phenolics
Head small (1 cm), light brown, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to partial 1 mm ring
Body medium brown, cloudy
Flavor of dates and figs, possibly some raisins as well; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate full, creamy, lively carbonation
Although totally lacking a head and lacing and being only medium brown, in other characteristics this resembles a quad. The alcohol, while not noticeable in the flavor, makes itself evident in the following stomach burn. Pretty weak overall, this may be a good gateway beer for someone afraid of quads.

3.96/5 rDev +0.3%
I have no idea how old this bottle is - the notches on the numbers on the side of the bottle seem to line up with a 1 and a 0; could that possibly mean this is from 2010? I've had it in my DBF in the cellar for awhile, but I wouldn't have guessed any more than a year. . . .
A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. The body is the color of iced tea - murky or hazy iced tea - but when backlit it's more mahogany or even ruby. Small thin khaki-colored head on top disappears immediately. No real lacing other than some short-lived "legs" after each sip.
S: Brown bread, brown sugar and spiced apples - think those mulling spices you put in cider. Also a touch of alcohol is noted.
T: Similar to the nose, I get apple pie-type flavors: overripe apples, brown sugar and some spices (cinnamon, maybe cardamom). Some bread dough too. Alcohol is fairly well hidden on the palate, but shows up as a drying element in the aftertaste; heat is felt in the belly right away.
M: It's low in carbonation and a little watery for such a "big" style (and given the high ABV).
O: Good but not great.
