This pours medium brown color with a fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is yeasty with hints of bananas. This has a very full body with banana and yeasty flavors. There are lots of complex flavors that deliver a very good brew. Very well made and well worth the try.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. No readable freshness date

A- Pours a mostly opaque medium brown color with an 1/8 inch tan head that doesn't retains long before quickly becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and minimal surface foam.

S- Aroma of moderate oak and Belgian candi sugar. Stiff alcohol fume and a hint of wet cardboard.

T- Very subtle but effective use of Belgian yeast, candi sugar and oak. Smooth and easy to drink while still being very flavorful and interesting. Toasty, sweet and complex.

M- Somewhat syrupy and a bit thin but still vibrant somehow. Low carbonation with a fullish body.

O- Such an amazing quad. The oak complements the rest of the flavors so well resulting in a tasty drink. Certainly deserves to be sipped.

Pours a mahogany color, a bit lighter than most quads. Quickly dissipating white head.

Smell is earthy. Figs, bit hoppy, soil. Very pleasant smell, rich. Subtle raisin notes.

Taste is very earthy. Lots of fig, bit of caramel a bit of banana.

Not very carbonated. Pretty heavy and full bodied. Sort of medicinal finish. Pretty solid quad.
