look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A very murky medium brown. Almost no head - just enough to stick to the edge of the glass. No lacing at all.

Delicious smell. Fruity - prunes and apricot. The aroma of a fresh bear claw pastry.

A heavy taste that is sharper than the aroma. Spicy taste of the strange combination of nutmeg and thyme. Prunes and raisins. Then the taste of dark chocolate that resolves to licorice. Bitter hay aftertaste.

Medium slightly oily feel. Chalkiness in the aftertaste. Definitely needs more carbonation.

A well balanced quad with very complex, layered taste. More hops that most quads.

11.5oz bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Athens, GA). No clue what the 0 and 9 notches mean as far as bottle date. Served in a Microbrasserie Charlevoix goblet.

Pours an opaque dull brown with orange-ish highlights when held to the light and a half finger of sandy head. Head fades to a halo and small wisps that leave very little lace.

Smells of mildly fruity yeast, cherries, caramel and grape jelly. Sweet and rather inviting. The longer I smell it the more grape jelly I get.

Taste is a bit sharp overall with motes of cherries, grape jelly, cocoa, earthy, brown sugar, caramel malt and a decent amount of alcohol. Not too shabby.

Creamy medium body with just a hint too much carbonation. Sweet earthy stone fruit finish.

Another well made brew from Dieu du Ciel. While it's far from my favorite this is enjoyable. I actually like the grape jelly aspect. Worth a go for fans if the style or the brewery.
