12.7oz bottle purchased at Atlas Bottle Works in June, 2014. Poured into tulip glass.

A - Bright but might as well be hazy due to the dark dark reddish-brown hue. Thin head on pour, dissipates quickly.

S - Dark cured fruits like dates, raisins, and apricot meet with rum notes to hint at fruitcake. Almond in the background.

T - Chocolate, rum-raisin, date, and just delicious. Drinking this as a desert beer was an excellent choice. Plums provide a subtle tart note hidden in the complex fruit flavors. Some alcohol hotness on the finish.

M - Creamy yet well carbonated, the residual stickiness of this beer in the mouth is actually pleasant.

O - Superb dessert beer, would pair well with chocolate, darker cakes, and cheesecake. Hints of coffee and the lack of sickly stickiness on the finish makes this one of the better quads that I've had.
