look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 375 ml cork and caged bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: Made quite a pop when the cork came out of this one. Huge amount of carbonation requiring multiple rests to get the entire contents into my tulip. Thick tan head on top of a very dark muddy brown liquid looks amazing in the glass.

Smell: First thing I get is cinnamon, and a lot of it. Going back for a second sniff, I get a bit of the malt sweetness from the base quad and just a touch of the peppers. As the beer warms, the sweet candy sugar smell comes through over the spices a bit more.

Taste: Peppery spices are the first thing noticed on the tip of the tongue, but that quickly gives way to the sweet caramel malt flavors of the quad. I get some dark fruit flavors in the middle of the tongue. the beer finishes dry, with the spices (not sure if it is pepper or pure cinnamon) coming back and leaving a tingle on the back of the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Feels a bit strange in the mouth with the huge mix of spices and the abundance of carbonation. A little thin for what I would expect from such a big beer.

Overall: I'm not as impressed with this as I'd hoped to be, but it was by no means a let down. I think this could have been a real winner, but it seems they went a little overboard on the spices which drowned out the base beer a little too much.
