look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12.7oz bottle
A - dark brown, thin but foamy, tan head coats the top of the ale
S - huge malt nose, plum & dark fruit, brown sugar, yeast, bread, fig
T - tons of malt again with plum, brown sugar, molasses, yeast, bread, fig, spice, booze is noticeable but well concealed
M - thick, full body, pleasant carbonation, fig and plum linger with a spicy, peppery finish
O - very nice quad with some added plum characteristics and complexity. Not sure that I'd get it again at that price ($4.99), but it was worth the try
