3.89/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Very cloudy nut-brown pour, opaque despite not being too dark, and very thin head which quickly dissipated.
Walnuts come through the nose in advance of yeast, candi sugar, gingerbread, dates, and a little bit of alcohol. Complex and interesting.
Much sweeter taste than the aroma hinted, and more heavily favoring dark fruit. Prunes, plums, and sugar, with just a hint of tart plum peel. More gingerbread, and molasses. Slightly metallic.
Slightly boozy; medium overall feel re: viscosity, but a very complex and full beer to savor. Good amount of carbonation sting adds a very necessary bite to balance out the sweetness.
This is one of the sweeter quads I've tasted. It's also sufficiently complex and full. Good, but not quite in that echelon of great quads.

I have no idea how old this bottle is - the notches on the numbers on the side of the bottle seem to line up with a 1 and a 0; could that possibly mean this is from 2010? I've had it in my DBF in the cellar for awhile, but I wouldn't have guessed any more than a year. . . .
A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. The body is the color of iced tea - murky or hazy iced tea - but when backlit it's more mahogany or even ruby. Small thin khaki-colored head on top disappears immediately. No real lacing other than some short-lived "legs" after each sip.
S: Brown bread, brown sugar and spiced apples - think those mulling spices you put in cider. Also a touch of alcohol is noted.
T: Similar to the nose, I get apple pie-type flavors: overripe apples, brown sugar and some spices (cinnamon, maybe cardamom). Some bread dough too. Alcohol is fairly well hidden on the palate, but shows up as a drying element in the aftertaste; heat is felt in the belly right away.
M: It's low in carbonation and a little watery for such a "big" style (and given the high ABV).
O: Good but not great.
