4.01/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark reddish brown--actually almost black--with a huge, brown and frothy head; okay lacing

S: Fruity--grapes, plums, cherries, banana--up front; some candi sugars; burnt brown sugar; roasted malts underneath the complexities develop as this warms

T: Slightly burnt brown sugar mingles with fruits: cherries, plums, bananas; some roasted malts linger but the sugary, fruity esters are the star here; some booziness as well in the finish

F: Medium body; nice texture and mouth feel

O: A really pleasant, fruity malty quad

Good beer.
You can taste the plums and I liked the finish.
Sweet - like a quad should be; so pair what you're eating/drinking accordingly.
