A: pours a dark brown,almost black with ruby hues across the brew
S: a strong mixture of dark fruits(plums,figs) & alcohol
T: slight chocolate followed by those figs & dates with the warm alcohol following it up
M: feel is exactly what I'm looking for out of a quad. Not to heavy or sweet,just subtle carbonation to compliment the earthy tones of this brew.
D: other than the 11% on the side of this bottle,everything else leads me to believe I could drink 2, maybe 3 of these

Poured this into a Westmalle goblet. It shows as a deep red/brown color with a light creamy head. The head stays around and spreads itself unevenly across the surface of the beer.

Smells particularly strong. However, the booze is offset by a number of fruits - they vie for contention but I am not getting dominant odors from one in particular. Lots of brown sugar and tons of lighter spices to round the beer out.

Fruits and malt disguise whatever alcohol is lurking in this monster. At 11% that is no easy task. The brown sugar and other spices keep it well balanced.

Mouthfeel is great.

Drinkability is exceptional for a beer this high in alcohol. If I had bought more than one bottle, I could see myself losing track of my intake very easily.

Pours a lovely dark and slightly hazy cinnamon-brown with a decent and not too persistent tan head. Aroma is quite strong, yeasty and fruity, slightly sweet with malty and caramel undertones - seriously tempting. Flavor is lively, yeasty and malty with strong caramel and fruity undertones - WHOA! This has quite a fierce alcohol bite! Texture is rough, tingly and sassy, leaving a lively and fizzy feeling on the tongue and inside the lips. A must!

Excellent brew!! The appearance is very dark in which you cant see through with a beautiful head that sticks around almost through the whole beer. The smell is very grabbing with a nice smell of malt and a very fruity hops sent! The taste is great you think a beer of this strength would be a little much but it is suprisingly smooth. The mouthfeel is amazing almost non existant which makes for a 110% drinkability. Way to represent Georgia!!! Please go to your nearest spirit shop and try to find this beer you will not be upset!!
