Corked and Caged 750ml
A: Nice dark tan almost black but not quite some off colored head

S: deep rich dates, raisins, cloves, honey and some alcohol

T: this beer drinks like a perfect quad get deep dark fruit tastes almost a little barrel characteristics toffee and an Oakiness very inviting alcohol is completely hidden maybe as it warms it will come out

M: thick on the tongue but not super viscous like a great stout and well carbonated Belgians always have more carb

O: Stellar beer if you see it buy it you won't be disappointed top notch quad

Tulip glass.

A: Pours a cola-like brownish, kind of dull, with two fingers of fluffy off-white head. Excellent retention but minimal lacing.

S: Primarily dark fruit: currant, raisin, some black cherry.

T: Rich, fruity malt with prominent notes of dark fruit, esp. blackcurrant, a touch of oxidized character like you’d get from a sherry (odd since this is not aged?), with a moderate-high sweetness.

M: Creamy mouthfeel, per the style, with medium high carbonation on a medium body. Hides the alcohol extremely well.

O: A well constructed ale, but it’s a style I don’t really know what to do with it, being super fruity, sweet, and high alcohol. I don’t partciularly feel like drinking it on its own, but I could see it pairing well with some beef stew or other dark meat dish.
