Poured from the keg into a wine glass at the DC United tailgate. Why? Because I can.

Real murky brown honey color for the body, quite light for a quad. Head is thick whipped and large. Light toffee tan color and big lacing. Aggressive if murky.

Nose is nice quad rich but subtle. Mild fig with light biscuit cookie sense. Some thin toffee, missing some warmth for style points.

Sharp light body on the palate. Very easy drinking and almost round like mouthfeel. Lots of light toffee and light chocolate cookied cereal milk tastes. Some citrus like hop finish but very mild with some caramel in the end. Some sharp clove like sense as it warms.

Overall the alcohol on this is very well hidden, and it drinks real well. This is a very good atempt at this style for DC Brau. New Halloween tradition? It would be a good one.

Has some great flavors throughout but I feel it misses the style mark. Not much of a quad in my opinion but someone below said it reminded them of a scotch ale/wee heavy and I would agree with that.

Dark rum soaked fruits: raisin, touch of cherry. Alcohol is prominent but not overbearing, still allowing the fruits to come through. Slick mouthfeel with mild/low carbonation.

Would love to try this in one of the barrel-aged versions.
