    A rather subdued Quad that offered up an abundance of the classical flavors associated with dark Belgian brews. Pours a plum color with a 1/2" brown head and surprisingly good lacing. Plenty of dark fruits and berries with some clove and candi sugar. The Belgian yeast influence is there, but it's a touch mottled. Medium bodied and very drinkable considering the style. Nothing wrong with this offering, just a little too calm when compared to many of it's piers.

    Pours a chocolatey reddish color, clear body for the most part, decent initial head, but it dissipates quickliy and does nothing after that, no lacing, nothing. Weak quad appearance. The aroma of cherries, caramel, bananas, some nuts. Flavor followed, strong cherries, bananas, nuts, caramel, light chocolate, but finishing with too strong of a caramel and alcohol finish. Mouthfeel is moderate to syrupy thick, but not overly done for the style.

    Tasted in bottle at the 2006 Pizza Port Strong Ale Fest. This quad poured a deep amber color from a bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is dark fruits, yeast and sweet. Medium to full bodied quad. Malts are fruity and sweet, lots of raisin, date and plum flavors. Very sweet tasting, but not cloying. Good balance. Nice malt profile throughout, with a nice linger malt finish. An excellent sipping beer. Hides the alcohol very well, could be dangerous in large quantities. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

    Bottle courtesy of Hopdog: Poured a dark brown color ale with a small foamy head with minimal retention. Aroma of dry sweet fruits and cookie dough is quite nice and enjoyable. Taste is generally lighter then expected with some sweet fruit and light cookie dough being enjoyable but less complex then I would have liked it to be. Body is way too thin for the style and carbonation is very low which doesn’t fit the style IMHO. Alcohol is well hidden and I would have to say that this a fair example of the style but better carbonation and fuller body would be even better.

    I think I had a bad bottle. Normally, I'd temper my review, but since Sly Fox does their own bottling and the bottle was bought straight from the brewpub less than a week ago, I'm going with it. Pour was dark, no head even with a vigorous pour. Beer was flat and completely undrinkable...sickly sweet and cloying. I have NEVER drain poured a bomber before now...such a sad sight.

    I had Sly Fox Ichor at the Split Thy Skull event at Sugar Moms in Philly. This 10th anniversary quad poured a dark reddish brown colored body with a small head. The aroma was sweet like candi sugar. The taste was malty, sweet, noted caramel. Had a nice body and finished smooth.

    Bottle, nearly 2 yrs old... Poured a dark mahogany color with a small thin off white head and very light lacing on the glass. Aroma of dried nuts and fruits, light chocolate, caramel and some wood dust. Taste was that of a nice quad. Dried berries and nuts, caramel, toffee, and candy sugar. Though sweet, the 2 years in the bottle have dried it out nicely. Light alcohol was noticed, but overall it was well hidden. Thanks for bringing this James!!

    This elixer pours with a dark red brown body topped by a medium thick head with little lacing. The aroma is sweet and malty with a strong caramel candy note. The flavor is equally sweet and malty with caramel notes, but a very slight bitterness shows through. Nice! Full bodied and smooth with a slightly oily texture.
