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.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into glasses and shared with a friend. The bottle has a dating system where they have months and years printed on the side of the label and notch the year and month. It was really hard to decipher if it was actually notched, but the best I can tell, this beer was from December 2012 (purchased from Arnold's Liquor Lokker in Keeseville, NY). So, better than 18 months old.

Dark translucent brown with slight light tan head. Pretty much perfect for the style.

Aroma is of dried fruit - dates, plums, raisins. Very nice.

Taste follows the nose, with plum and raisin, brown sugar and caramel. Slight bitterness. I detected some metallic taste and attribute this to the age of the bottle. I'd love to try one a little younger.

Mouthfeel is nice - viscous and full, with adequate carbonation. Just right for a quad.

Overall, a good quad, but unfortunately the one I got may have been a little past it's prime. I'll grab a fresher one if I ever see it again.
