Found this at the local bevmo and I haven't been on here in awhile in a long time.
A - A Touch dark for a DSA but has a nice auburn hue to it. Ring of bubbles around the beer. Carbonation is visible in through the glass.
S - Pretty nice lots of sweet raisin aroma with a malty backbone to it.
T- Interesting. Very sweet even for Quad Raisins play through well with the flavor. But overall the quad is not to complex for its alcohol content.
M - Cloyingly sweet even though the body is a touch on the lighter side.
O - Tasty Quad, might be better with some more time on it. Body should be thicker and not so much sweetness left behind.

750ml brown bottle purchased from BevMo in Sunnyvale, CA. Brought back to Sydney where I shared it with Sam.
Pours a frothy black-brown, with a puffy head of pale brown: the lightness of everything is the giveaway that this is something other than a big porter or stout. Lacing is excellent. Body is quite light. Looks very decent.
Nose is actually surprisingly mild. Some fine grainy malt characters, and a touch of sharpness that gives it a slightly boozy or inky quality, but not a whole bunch more. It's fairly fine all over, but it's not particularly big or complex.
Taste is a lot better. Here, there's a sweetness of dried fruit through the centre of the palate, which has a raisin or even concord grape quality to it. Around this is the fine depth of sweetness with a bit of booze to it. On the back is a long, lingering sweetness laced with a spiciness from the alcohol. It's a nice mix.
Feel is light and slightly frothy. It's pretty nice.
Overall, yeah, another fine brew out of the Lost Abbey stable. It's certainly not different enough to stand out from the crowd, but it's a beer I'm perfectly happy to drink. But then, pretty much anything with the LA label on it is something I'm perfectly happy to drink.
