22 oz bottle poured into a nonic pint

A: light brown Amber body with good clarity small fizzy off-white head dissipates quickly.

S: light clove banana some toffee burnt sugars

T: lots of the Burnt sugar taste comes through some slight molasses and light clove and some toffee.

M: prickly carbonation medium bodied light cling on the finish.

O: it's an OK beer it lacks depth of a lot of your Belgian quads. Lots of burnt sugars but none of the raisin, figs, and dates that a nicer quad has.

From a bomber I have had a while. from an Alabama friend
More fizz gone fast with no lacing than head ,mahogany color showing some red when light hits it
Fruity yeasty ,some Belgian funk
Some sweetness and yeast with traces of fruit
Thin compared to world class quads. but some texture
Actually better than expected

Appearance - The beer was a murky black color with some bubbles crowning the sides of the glass.

Smell - Banana Candy. In a big way, this smelled like candy.

Taste - On the initial taste, I detect banana candy. The chocolate comes in the aftertaste and leans toward the dry side.

Mouthfeel - Despite a little bit of heat, the beer is quite smooth and lingers in the mouth.

Overall - This is a very respectable quad.

Poured from 32 oz growler into goblet.

A: Pours a very dark mahogany brown with smallish one finger white head. Some minimal lacing.

S: Plum, raisin, sweet malts, some Belgian yeast. Maybe a hint of cherries.

T: The Belgian yeast and sugars are up front. Dark fruits, roasted malts. Very drinkable for almost 10% ABV.

M: Full bodied, coating the tongue nicely.

O: Very nice quad for a cold winter night. Really wish they would bottle this one.

Edit: They did do a bottle release for this one. Enjoying one tonight...
