Pouring the undated 12 oz bottle into my Belgian snifter, I see a clear red-brown ale with a small, bubbly and very short-lived head.

Aromas of raisins and dates emerge, mixed with some alcohol esters.

Flavor: dark fruits, a hint of banana, traces of brown spices, fruity alcohol.

Feel: smooth and very gentle for 11.8% ABV, but warming.

O: a tasty Amer. quad with fairly good complexity and balance, and a higher ABV than the flavor suggests.

Deep garnet orange in color with a thick, viscous appearance. Poured with a short off-white foam that quickly reduced to a foamy ring. Ripe apple, sweet fig, and banana aromas with an unmistakable booziness at the back end. On the heavier side of medium bodied with a smooth oily feel in the middle surrounded by light but tangy carbonation. Ripe banana and dark fruits flavors with a sticky sweet malt backbone. Tangy hop bitterness through the middle to the end. Unmistakable booziness throughout. Finished semi-dryly with lingering fruity sweetness and earthy yeasty aftertaste.

Not for everyone. Strong alcohol aftertaste but somewhat fruity apon sip. I found it to taste better extremely cold. It really does remind me of a barely wine style ale. But if u wanna get hammered with a six pack this is your beer. If u can handle the price

A: 1/3 inch head that quickly vanishes, light caramel color, very little carbonation visible (literally one medium stream).

S: Alcohol on front-end, the slightest banana scent on the back-end.

T: Pretty straight forward: mellowed bananas.

M: Medium body, bitey carbonation, alcohol is present on the back-end, a little rough at times.

O: Surprised by the banana presence, great carbonation. Very enjoyable.

Cellared Bottle from 2012 with no date on the bottle

Pours with little head into a Chimay goblet. Mahogany in color with a cloudiness and just a trace of white head.

The nose has big bready notes and a light caramel despite what I was expecting.

Thinner than I anticipated. The alcohol is hidden but starts to come out a bit as it warms. There are some stone fruit characters that come through but these are not as bold as I expected again. I want this to come through with a bigger mouthfeel and more intense flavors. It is easy drinking and finishes dry with raisins and tobacco on the palate.

Overall a solid beer but it is missing that punch that I expect from a quad.
