Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
A real interesting looker. Deep garnet red body, with a clear character, and very dark, nearly purple in color, and some hard to see carbonation. Tan like head, lots of snapping carbonation and fades to a thin collar that always gets repopulated. The body color is truly exceptional.
An absolutely fantastic nose on this beer. Deep caramel stickiness, mild coffee, slight vanilla, and sugar cream, it totally smells like burnt sugar and perfect crème brûlée. Buried dark fruit of faint cherry but deeper plum, a little bit controlled heat, and quad like sensing warmth. Very impressive, this is like a quad without the sugar and a subdued mild cream and caramel, it's nearly perfect and so unique.
Palate brings much of the enjoyment from the nose, but a big surprise. Heavily fruit forward and large. Wine like warmth and quad character but no sucrose sweetness. Plums. Cherries, moving to a light bodied finish. Palate is very light for such long blended barrel aging, oak tones very subdued. Light caramel action, sticky toffee, the fruit dominates but let's the giant caramel come through.
Overall, it's impressive as all get out. It's like a quad without the sucrose, the Creme Brulee without a sticky rush and sugar buzz. It's fantastic.
