Poured from a 12ish oz bottle into a tulip. Puffy off white head that disappeared quickly to a whisper of lacing. The smell is delightful. Burnt dates, raisin, caramel sweet lovin'. Taste improved as the temperature went up. Much the same taste as smell. Mouth feel is nice with light bubbles and not too syrupy. Overall an enjoyable beer that made my cheeks flush half way through.

25 oz bottle served in a Porter Bar goblet.

Clear red-brown body topped by a decent head.
Near equal bitter-sweet balance.
Toffee, hops, faint spices and dark bread in the flavor.
Partially hidden, high ABV: well-hidden in both the nose ad the mouth, with some warming.

Overall: tasty cross between an imperial quad and an Amer. Strong Ale.

From the growler via Eightball Brewing which also gave me a chance to say good luck
to the fun tender of the bar---Peanut!
This fine ale pours a deep dark brown with mahogany highlights and a modest head of
light off white foam that settles to a thick ring and light lacing in the snifter. Nose of dark
brown sugars, subtle cherries and astringent alcohol, raisins, and biscuit. Flavors follow the
nose with cherry and raisin notes drowning in brown sugar and very heavy booze with a touch
of dark bread crust and subtle bitterness of herbal hops. Nice mouth feel, low carbonation, slick,
sweet, and very warm. Overall a good experience, but not my favorite quad by any stretch of the
means. Still a good solid brew to try.

Cheers

Kind of standard as far as quads go but pretty solid all around. Huge malty flavors of raisin, caramel and toast smother any of the advertised American hops that may be in there. Very slick and full mouthfeel, smooth carbonation with a bit of booze heat.

Best by 12/11/17.

Pours a hazy copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen floating in the beer after the pour. Smell is of toasted malt, dark fruit, caramel, toffee, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with dark fruit, caramel, toffee, earth, and alcohol flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that lives up to its imperial label by being quite boozy in both the smell and taste.

Serving type: bottle.
