Enjoyed in a snifter from a 22 oz bottle. This fine quadruple pours a dark cloudy brownish red with a thin off white head that dissipates to a thin ring and light lacing. Nose of Belgian candy sugars, strong alcohol, and some dark fruits. Flavors are warming sweet candy sugars up front, rather hot really for the alcohol content, dark sweet cherries to the back, and a sweet aftertaste and coating finish. A very nice quad from an American brewer.

Even if not super complex, this is an excellent quadrupel that goes well with things like cheese fondue.

Dark brown with reddish hints,it has a small medium tan head with red hints,steadily shrinking to foamy ring, wisps, a little lace.

Aroma is caramelised dried cherries and leather.

Taste has caramelised dried cherries,leather.hint of brandy,some earthy toastiness and hint of dried fig. It is lightly on the sweet side.

Toasted, nutty, sweet toffee backbone in aroma. Flavor is extremely toasted nuts, hints of sherry, with dark cherry notes. Dry finish, and slight sweetness initially.
