i am not sure whether or not these guys make a couple of different quads, or if the packaging has just changed over time or what, but this is exactly the type of beer they do well at boom island, and i enjoyed this, if indeed this is the right version. it sure didnt seem all that hoppy for being quadruple hopped, but thats the nature of these beers sometimes. i actually thought the color was quite light and the flavor was rather mild for the style, but its a nice cold weather sipper for this time of year. sweet like molasses, long boiled and concentrated grain sugars, and a complex herbal aromatic that must come from the hops. i get some wood, although i dont think this is barrel aged, like a sherry or cognac vibe, sugar and subtle grape and fusel alcohol, not quite hot but definitely has the warm fuzzies. light belgian yeast spice, less estery and yeast driven than i have gotten used to from these guys, but the subtle profile works in well here. a little thin in body for what this is, it doesnt quite have that heartiness i look for in the style, but it stands out as unique as a result. cool beer overall, a small doses thing, but enjoyable as winter approaches.

I am drinking this on tap at the brewery.
L: pours brilliant copper brown under a 1/2" light tan cap with fair retention

S: It has a rich, spicy nose. Anise stands out. Treacle, caramel, dark dried fruit, and more generic fruit aromas support the spice.

T: mildly sweet spicy plum start supported by dark sugars (treacle and caramel) and dark dried fruit. Mild alcohol flavor is in the background. More malt comes forward in the middle and then it finishes assertively bitter with some orange and orange pith

F: The body is medium and the carbonation is medium plus. Alcohol warming is very mild

O: The beer is smooth and very easy to drink, especially for such a big beer. I would like more of this but I have to drive home
