Muddy, dark brown color with mocha head. Aroma has raisins, dark sugar and some other generic dark fruit character. Taste follows with dark fruits, bitter chocolate and raisins. Body is medium with light carbonation, also quite boozy. Overall this beer has some nice flavors but I think it's too bitter for the style. Some sweetness would have helped to bring out all the components in a better way.

Very dark amber pour, tan head with decent retention and a somewhat sticky lacing. You can tell from the smell that this is a Belgian quad - caramel / brown sugar, dried fruit (figs, raisins), coffee, cocoa, a bit of vanilla and a hint of cinnamon. Taste notes include raisins, figs, caramel, sour cherries, some cinnamon (which I probably wouldn't have noticed, had I not known it should be there), coffee, dark chocolate and a spicy chilli punch, probably made more potent by the high ABV. Medium to full bodied, with a creamy and a bit sticky mouthfeel. Spicy aftertaste, with a nice sweet caramel component to balance it out.

Thanks Liz!

Burgundy / copper body with a small tan head. Dark fruits aroma with a hint of spice. Hints of red wine. Malty body with notes of sweet caramel. Sweet plums, a touch of cinnamon. Good stuff.

Bottle from Bristol Farms Palm Desert for $8

Appearance – Brown colour with an above average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell – Malts, caramel, fruit cake, dark fruits, all spice

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and a bit of chocolate. There is also some raisins/plums/cherries, oranges, and an all spice mix.

Overall – Really complex and the flavours are integrated very well. I suspect that age has really helped this beer based on other reviews. If you have some of this tucked away, give it a try - I bet it's peaking.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Nice khaki head. A few wisps. Islands atop a brown body.

Smell - Buckets of raisins. Cinnamon spice. Alcohol and dark fruits.

Taste - Lots of caramel malts and spices. Chocolatey. Finishes with dark fruits. Dry and raisiny.

Mouthfeel - Dry and boozy with high carbonation.

Overall - Dominated by spices and raisins. I don't get much from the peppers, though.
