look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 750 mL bottle into snifter. Stamped with #3067 1/23/17 (which I assume is bottle # and best by date).
A: Pours a dark orange-amber with 1/2 inch light tan head. Good retention.
S: Dark dried fruit, spicy Belgian yeast, cinnamon, clove, and sweet dark caramel malt. Definitely a sweet aroma.
T: Dark dried fruit (raisins, figs, dates)...tends toward more fresh than overly ripe or aged notes. Cinnamon, bready yeast, vanilla, sweet caramel malt, and a hint of rum.
M: Medium body...drinks much lighter than ABV. Silky smooth and sweet. Indulgent feel. Lingers decently on the palate.
D: A well constructed quad. Drinks very fresh...which is a nice change from the usual per style. Easily drinkable...too easily for the ABV!

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, dark fruit, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with dark fruit and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors for the style.

Another great beer from the rare beer club. Smells looks, and tastes great. Nice mouth feel. I can't wait to see how this develops over time. There is a hint of rawness to it that should smooth out over time.
It has the nice dried fruit flavor and alcohol warmness.
