4.22/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a one-pint-some-odd-ounce bottle into my Terrapin snifter.

Appearance: Golden brownish with a two-finger creamy head. No transparency; totally cloudy. One of the finest-looking beers I've ever set eyes to.

Smell: The first word that comes to mind is 'musty'. It's got a funky smell, with alcohol present. It's a little vegetable-y.

Taste: Wow, here come the vegetables! It seems to odd to describe a beer like that, but that's seriously the impression I get. The alcohol I caught in the smell is also evident in the taste. You know what, the more I drink it, the more I like it. There are some roasted-tasting malts underneath the funk; on the whole, it reminds me a bit of Celebrator Doppelbock by Ayinger... but funkier.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth, but almost kind of flat. It could use both a little more carbonation and a little more body. Definitely not bad, though.

Drinkability: High drinkability, both in spite of and because of the funkiness. (There's that word again, I know.) Still, more than a pint is a lot to drink, especially for something with 10% abv.

3.96/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a brownish orange. Beige head is fairly thick.

Smell is complex. Dark fruits. Brown Sugar. Malt, yeast and spicy smells at the end.

The taste is similar to the smell. Dark fruits, malt. Some oak flavors as well. Very sweet though.

Not enough carbonation. Too flat and syrupy for my tastes.

Great quad that is only hurt by its excessive sweetness.

Felt like a rather mild quad when I started at fridge temp, but as the time went on and the beer approached room temp, it started really growing on me and becoming so much more complex and tasty...at the end I was completely enchanted with this quad. So yummy.
