Poured into an Ovila Chalace. Pours a deep brown color. Fairly clear but a little hazy. The head dissipated to nothing very fast. No lacing.
Aroma of dark fruits and a bit of Booz. Some caramel toasted sugar type smells. Not hugely aromatic.
Taste is pretty good. Not as sweet as other quads. Bit of dark fruit favors but a slight bite in the finish either from a hop or a sort of roasted grain. Bit of booz
Pretty dry mouthfeel. Little more than usual with a quad. High carb.
Overall a tasty quad. Not top 10 status in my mind but still very good. Gunna let one age for a bit to see how it does.
Serving type: bottle

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
