Pours a soapy, tan head that has good persistence. Strong, sweet aroma is a bit spicy and reminiscent of raisins and dates. Nice ruby/burnt sienna color. Starts with a rich mix of sweet dates and toasted malt. The toasted characteristic builds for a bit near the finish. The finish is dates on top of toasted malt, with a faint trace of floral hops.

This isn't bad. I am not a fan of this style, usually, but the toasted malt is balanced off the sweetness really well.

pours an extremely dark, cloudy mahogany with an out of control head that has to be waiting on to continue pouring. nose; sweet dates, & light ethanol. taste; toasted caramel malt, dates, brown sugar, light vanilla, & oak. extreme carbonation & heavy, soft mouthfeel. not as complex as i like for the style, and definitely far onto the sweet & malty side.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet. Thin head, but good retention. I'll admit I haven't sampled many versions of this style, but I think this offering misses the mark on flavor in comparison to the Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Quad. Looks and smells appealing, alcohol is almost non-existent.

Not sure why this stuff is rated 92. It's one of the worst craft beers ever IMO. And it's not a Quadrupel. Tasted like a poorly made Eisbock.

12 oz bottle with a bottled on date of 12/2014 (revised and revised in July 2015).

Poured with a good sized, somewhat creamy tan head over a clear, dark, reddish brown body. Fine lacing.

Aroma: over ripe fruits including banana, wet wood, and some clove and other spices.

Flavor: too sweet with a strong sense of artificial vanilla, over-ripe soft fruits, dark dried fruits and mild bitterness [earlier review]. Dark fruit and light vanilla-oak notes. OK bitter-sweet balance.

Feel: full bodied with soft medium carbonation. High ABV a bit too apparent

O: I’ve had this beer several times and am always disappointed given how much I like many other beers of this style. Not bad, certainly, and will probably be much more appealing to some others.
