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.

4.33/5 rDev +9.1%
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.

A - Brown pour with a clear foam that bubbles with activity. No lacing of note. Has a slight red hue.
S - Scents of berries, dried apricots, and candy sugar. Gives off a dry sherry smell.
T - Initial sweetness of sugary fruit gives to an acidic bite at the end. There is a slight warming booziness that makes this beer inviting. While not as mellow as some of thebetter quads, I did enjoy the complexity.
M - Balance on this was nice and a very drinkable beer after a nice meal. If this were just ore mellow I'd give it a 5.
O - Southampton may have lost a step recently but beers like this make me look forward to trying them. A really good local belgian quad that could serve better with some age on it.
