On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Khaki head with moderate retention. Mahogany body. Aroma includes raisins and dates, old dark fruit and a touch of alcohol vapor. Taste includes caramel malt, brown sugar, dates, raisins and a bit of molasses. Very nice interpretation of the style for an American version but what else would you expect from Sierra Nevada.
Serving type: on-tap

My eager young cadet Beer Advocate shared this beer with me that he bought. I told him I am very hit or miss with quads so better to split a bottle then do a flat out trade as it might be risk of drain pour. So this one was a definite hit. For over 10% it is very smooth and not boozy at all. Very buttery mouthfeel. Lots of fruit complexity mixed in here with the usual raisin, fig flavor etc. I find this quad as well made as some of the best from Belgium. Very high caliber quad. Thanks for sharing with me my eager young Beer advocate!
