Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, dark fruit, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with dark fruit and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors for the style.

Another great beer from the rare beer club. Smells looks, and tastes great. Nice mouth feel. I can't wait to see how this develops over time. There is a hint of rawness to it that should smooth out over time.
It has the nice dried fruit flavor and alcohol warmness.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours with two fingers of off-white foam on top of a clear, amber-brown body. The head settles fairly quickly but leaves decent lace.

S - A complex aroma of molasses, brown sugar, plums, and a hint of chocolate.

T - Dark bread, burnt caramel, and molasses. Fruity notes of red apple, plum, and licorice come out in the middle, with a finish of burnt sugar, fruit, and a touch of chocolate.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a somewhat sweet finish.

D - Really nice. Complex, fruity and dark, this is probably the best american brewed example of the style I have had.

A: very thin head on a clear deep amber body.

S: candy sugar, caramel and generic dark fruit. Aroma is good, just not strong rough for me.

T: very malty with lots of lots of candy and brown sugar and dark fruit with mostly fig and plum. Molasses and caramel notes. Malts are bready.

M: medium chewy body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: nice quad. Not too sweet which is something that usually turns me off from other quads I have had. I would like more dark fruit from this one though.
