12oz bottke into a matching hotd 20th anniversary wine glass. The brew appears a murkey brown color with less than a dozen bubbles that get agitated towards the surface and break making the brew look still. Clear alcohol legs droop down the wall of the glass.

The aroma is very much quad-like with a sweet maltiness like raisins blended with molasses. A bit of green yeastiness is present with more dark fruity alcohol coming out with every whiff. A little earthen or dusty with chocolate and brandy-like booze and oak. Faint vanilla and caramel aspect with almost a milk chocolate character emerges as it gets warm.

The taste is boozy but equally sweet. Raisins and chocolate immediately come to mind blended with vinous brandy booze quality and brown sugar. Faint licorice notes mingle with old oak barrel thats slightly earthen and musty. Leather really becomes pronounced as it warms up with the booze feeling solvent with increasing large sips. Once it goes beyond ideal temperature, some herbal hops are felt mixing with that previously mentioned green yeastiness.

This is a medium to fuller bodied brew that despite having sediment in the bottle is nearly completely still. It is a hell of an awesome sipper that is deeply complex and enjoyable with suggestions of barrel aging and plenty of booze contrasted by residual sweetness. However, its flatness is a bit disappointing. Just even a little carbonation would have helped assist the feel and move the flavors across the palate a little better. Initial impression almost seems like this is an alcoholic version of a tootsie rool. It is very nice. However, it has some green yeasty accents to it that are a little distracting. If some extended aging helps clean this brew up and give it just a little carb, we are looking at a brew with serious potential to be a top favorite in the style. However, this is rated as-is.

12oz bottle into HotD tulip. 2013 vintage, consumed at the brewery.

A: Pours a raisin brown color with no head.
S: The nose is full huge notes of dates and figs, raisins, and dark chocolate.
T: Flavors of sweet figs, candied dates, mild dark chocolate, raisin, and a hints of vanilla come through up front. Ever so slight flavors of peat in the finish, along with caramel and candied brown sugar.Chocolate and a touch of leather and leafy tobacco lingers in the aftertaste.
M: Thick body, slick and sticky mouthfeel, viscous, low carbonation with a bit of chew to it.
O: Amazing flavor, great sticky chew, a bold sipper with ton of flavor. Defiantly one of the better quads I've had.

Thanks to AndrewK for sharing this one at his tasting.

2013 vintage.

Pours a clear dark honey brown with a foamy tan head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, dark fruit, sherry, wood, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with toffee, dark fruit, wood, and alcohol flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with fantastic aromas and tasty but boozy flavors.

excited about this one, it's quad season

poured into a sn snifter

looks muddy brown, but it was expected

nose smells ok but i'm getting a lot of sour cherry, i dunno if this is a bad bottle, but it's ok, not amazing.

taste follows nose unfortunately. not overly sour but something not right. taste a hint of sour brown. aside from that it's an ok quad nothing like regular penne

medium bodied, alright i guess

really big let down! 4 times the price of much better quads. even if this is a bad bottle, or worth the risk for the asking price, definite pass. pick up a few st bernardus instead

didn't finish the bottle
