3.94/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: loose foam from start to finish....reddish-brown, relatively clear till a few yeasts slipped in....

S: clean ,vodka-like booze... some light, raisin-y fruit.... mellow yet full floral nuance... overall, nice but somewhat subdued

T: super-smooth, velvety-flowery, cookie-ish malt.... brown sugar, granola, background raisin.... superbly mellow and balanced - flavors don't explode, but excellent, nonetheless

M: ethanol-attenuated medium-light body.... subtle, spongy foam wash with each sip... easy-drinking - airy and light around a compact, satiny flow.... fairly restrained swell of boozy warmth midway through each sip

O: one that doesn't bombard the senses with flavor.... gotta let it sit for awhile for it to open up.... even then, dry and quite mellow... nice, if you're digging the subtleties and simply want to quell the swelling in your brain

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a caramel red color.
Figs, rasins and grapes are on the nose. Slight nutty and grassy smells are detectable too.
Taste is smooth but complex as you would expect from a quad. Raisin is the most detectable taste but apple (for some reason) and molasses are present too. Finishes somewhat sticky with a bready aftertaste.
Not the best quad I've had but very respectable.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Quite foamy head but disseapering quite quickly. Good autumn dark brown colour. With some little bubbles dancing in my glass.

The smell is warm, syrup, sugar and caramel. Also I get some milk chocolate as well. a Bit alcohol.

The taste is wonderful. Warm, silky and smooth. a Little bit strong but also quite good drinkable. a Palate of fine sugars, roasted barley and warm slighty alcohol.

Good beer for the cold winter days....
