No bottling date shown

Pours an incredibly cloudy brownish amber with glistening maroon hues and topped with a small, pillowy, off-white head; retention is short, reducing to a thick collar; a great deal of yeasty sediment floats around for a bit before settling.

Aromas of fig, raisin, plum skin, smoked toffee, sticky caramel, faint booze, and dark fruits; builds to a subtle, semi-sweet finish.

Taste brings a nice harmony of raisin, fig, and plum to start, with subtle clove and banana esters in the background; herbal and very woody, along with hints of sweet caramel on the finish.

Mouthfeel holds a light-medium body with noticeable but unobtrusive carbonation; almost heavy bits of toasty yeast verge on robustness and add some weight to the palate for a short time; somewhat watery, just faint enough to show and hold this back from being more well-rounded.

A solid quad showing the beginning stages of complexity expected from a heavy-hitter, but too inconsistent throughout to create any balance, ultimately holding it to the ‘solidly drinkable, but nothing too special’ territory.

Pours a cloudy, dark copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, astringency, slight grass, hint of yeast, slight pale malt, hint of banana, hint of coriander, and a hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of a Quadrupel. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, yeast, sweet malt, slight pale malt, hint of citrus, and hint of caramel malt. Overall, strong body, but lacking in complexity, good appearance and decent aroma.
