Thanks Liz!

Burgundy / copper body with a small tan head. Dark fruits aroma with a hint of spice. Hints of red wine. Malty body with notes of sweet caramel. Sweet plums, a touch of cinnamon. Good stuff.

Bottle from Bristol Farms Palm Desert for $8

Appearance – Brown colour with an above average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell – Malts, caramel, fruit cake, dark fruits, all spice

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and a bit of chocolate. There is also some raisins/plums/cherries, oranges, and an all spice mix.

Overall – Really complex and the flavours are integrated very well. I suspect that age has really helped this beer based on other reviews. If you have some of this tucked away, give it a try - I bet it's peaking.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Nice khaki head. A few wisps. Islands atop a brown body.

Smell - Buckets of raisins. Cinnamon spice. Alcohol and dark fruits.

Taste - Lots of caramel malts and spices. Chocolatey. Finishes with dark fruits. Dry and raisiny.

Mouthfeel - Dry and boozy with high carbonation.

Overall - Dominated by spices and raisins. I don't get much from the peppers, though.

"Enjoy after 12/21/12" printed on the bottle. Purchased in the summer of 2012 and it stayed in my cellar since. Figured 1 year old and it was ready, but after opening, this could have aged nicely for a much longer time im thinking.
Corked bottle poured into my crooked stave tulip (yes, prob should have been my westy chalice...but whatever).
Pours a deep black ruby color with a finger of tan head, that shrinks into thin floating lacing. Aromas of chocolate a huge, dried fruit/date/raison with a hint of heat in the nose. Flavor is dried fruit/raison, chocolate, clove, with a great spicey finish. Wow...this is really nice. Super smooth and full bodied. The dried fruit really shines here but what separates this from most quads is the slight heat in the finish. Really a great brew.
Based on reviews, it seems like this one needs age. Well, regardless, I really enjoyed this one.
