3.6/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 11.2 FL OZ bottle into chalice.

A- A deep caramel-amber. A bit lighter than any quad I've had to date. Aggressive pour yields a short 1-finger head that disappears and leaves a slight creamy coating.

S- Banana. Spiced peaches, molasses, fresh plums, ginger, sweet candi sugar, clean alcohol. Interesting.

T- Follows the nose pretty closely up front. Bananas, plums, some lemon rind bitterness. A good amount of carbonation bite leads into transition. The transition phase is a little abrasive, with the ripe fruit and alcohol coming up front. The warmth carries into the aftertaste, which is slightly grounded by a spicy bread flavor, with lingering grapes. Has enough of a development of flavor, but is a bit hasty.

M- Light bodied for the style. Pretty big carbonation that felt a bit much. Dry.

O- Not a bad beer, but there's many quads I'd take over this one. It does have a fairly different taste profile than many of the style, and is fairly light bodied... But at this price point, it will be hard for me to come back to this one with so many other options available.

05/15/14 On tap. A fine, fine beer. Caution, as this 10% ABV bomb is deceptive. It's as slick & smooth as your grandma said it would be. I find this to be a faultless beer...unless you plan on having more than a few (2 or 3). The seduction lies in the ultra inviting balance bitter & sweet (which should be a good lesson in life). With temperance this could prove to be an ally. I, for one, have learned to live with it, gladly.
