On tap at the brewery. Taster poured into plastic cup. Hazy amber with a finger of frothy head. Hard to assess lacing or retention. Aromas are honey, warm banana, caramel, raisin, and dates. Taste is brown sugar, yeasty, sweetness then late mild bitterness. Moderate carbonation, more than I like for the style. Dry finish.

Growler shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt.

The beer is light orange with ample carbonation / effervescence. Atop the beer sits a quarter inch of white, fizzy head. The aroma brings sweet malt, fruity esters, alcohol. Sweet throughout. This is more of a Belgian strong ale than a quad, in my opinion. Decent flavor, but a bit hot and sweet for my liking. Eh..

Lots of raisin, plum, date, fig. Tastes more of a scotch/ wee heavy or strong ale than quad.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A-hazy medium brown color with a smallish light tan head and a little lacing

S-dark fruit, yeast, brown sugar, hint of pine

T-dark fruit, brown bread, brown sugar, yeast notes, mild bitter finish

F-light to medium body with moderate carbonation, little thin and slight alcohol heat

O-drinkable, but nothing overly compelling and had less body and rich flavor than I expected
