A really good dark hops beer that is smooth with very little after taste. A good fizzy feeling when drinking with hints of fruits. I have not noticed much of an after taste.

750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 10/31/2013. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dark khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, prune, cherry, fig, date, apple, clove, black pepper, molasses, brown sugar, toffee, toast, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, raisins, and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, date, apple, clove, black pepper, molasses, brown sugar, toffee, toast, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, cherry, fig, date, apple, clove, black pepper, brown sugar, toffee, toast, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, raisins, and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome quadrupel style! All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, raisins, and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
