Another one graciously brought by stoutsnipas.

Small corked bottle, poured into a tulip. Unfortunately my review is from notes and I neglected to write down the batch.
Good looking brown beer with some shining highlights, and a large, long lasting foamy off-white head. Good lacing.
Aroma is quite good, with roasted malts, cloves, cinnamon, sugar, a little alcohol and some oaky/woody notes.
Near full body, the taste is quite good, but looking back on my original notes from the non oaked version, the aging did not seem to add much, and might have spoiled the balance, to some extent. This is not as good as I remembered, or reviewed.
It starts candy, lightly roasted grains, bread, cinnamon, a little warming alcohol.
My taste changed a lot, or this beer actually lost from aging.

A - pours a murky brown with almost no head to absolutely no head.

S - I don't get much of a smell. It's sweet and I can smell the alcohol but it doesn't put a lot off.

T - first of all it tastes good but it's unlike any other quad I've had. It's not complex at all it's such a light fruit flavor and a slight alcohol warming effect but the taste is so simple I feel like this is the worst review I could make.

M - light to medium bodied with heavy carbonation.

O - good but my least favorite for it's style.
