A: Pours almost black with a fluffy white head that recedes but still leaves some pretty nice film
S: Lots of brown sugar, molasses, dark fruit, and some dark, sweet malts.
T: At first, a burst of dark fruit and sweet malt, followed by a slightly bittering hop character and just a touch of tartness, not sure what from.
O: This is pretty nice, but my quest for the ultimate quad continues.

Thick, dark quad with no room for a head because of the overpour. Looks dark brown.
Rich raisiny nose with notes of plum, chocolate, and toffee. Smells rich and sweet with a burly strength that can only be masked by this mega-dark-fruit aroma. A good amount of roast is also evident. Fantastic.
Toffee, prune juice, rum raisin, brown bread, spicy alcohol, pressed grape, cough medicine, and a touch of dark chocolate. Really exquisite. Tons of complexity. Rather sweet, but decadently good. Mild bitterness that's aided by the booze. A liquory, fruity, Belgian dessert monster.
Very thick. Mouth-coating viscosity. Great body and a kick of gas, to boot. A sipper feel with big sipper strength.
Killer quad. One of the best American versions I have tasted. The best part is that it's not trying to be like the Belgian examples. Unique, and still top-notch.
Serving type: on-tap
