2010 22 oz bottle.
Pours a dark brownish amber with a thin film of light tan head and a thick ring of small bubbles. Sweet nose of plum, grape, bubblegum, candi sugar and light yeast. Medium thick body with light carbonation and a clean fruity finish. Plum, dark fruit skin, green apple and sweet chocolate dominate flavor. Not quite as complex as the best of the style, and getting a little muddled with age, but still enjoyable.

22oz bomber into a tulip - thank you santa!
A: Pours a muddy brown with a decent light tan head that fades to a ring and leaves a tiny bit of lacing on the glass.
S: The nose is immediately sweet and fruity with nice notes of cherries, prunes, toffee, and a touch of grape. It's pretty in your face and lets you know what's to come.
T: The taste starts with the fruity elements in the form of grapes, cherries, figs, and moves to the estery yeast flavors from the belgian yeast.
M: The feel is medium bodied and creamy. The booze is a bit evident here as well which knocks the score down a bit.
O: This has potential but everything is a bit over the top. I bet after a few years this thing would be damn good. Should have sat on it longer...

3.68/5 rDev -9.8%
Appearance: Pours a rather dark mahogany with an inch or so of foam; leaves quite a few strands of lace but doesn't have the classic Belgian look
Smell: Dates and figs, with a strong undertone of toffee
Taste: Dates and figs, up front, with almonds and toffee building by mid-palate; brown sugar and cinnamon spices enter, after the swallow, but the flavors fade into the finish
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation
Overall: As a Quad, the beer falls short and will not have the longevity one would expect from the style; it lacks the yeasty Belgian complexity and, in many ways, is more like a Barleywine than a Quad; still, it is an enjoyable brew, just not up there with the best examples of the style
