A- Super Dense off white head, great lacing, nice Maple Syrup color. It looks like you could float a quarter on this one. A bit of a haze which looks inviting.
S-Raisins, dark candi sugar, grainy bready worty, carmel and alcohol, Super complex.
T- Plum, Dark Fruits, fig, Sweet, alcohol, low bitterness, a bit of Cherry and super clean.
M- Cloying, Alcohol, great carbonation,
O- Great beer, this one would lay down super nice and the alcohol would die down a bit. Super good and exactly to style.

750ml corked and caged bottle served in a tulip. Unsure of the vintage. Pours an amber hue with a rocky, two-inch, off-white head embedded with craters and ringlets. Head eventually dissipates into a algae-like slick with swaths and spots of lacing coating the edges of the glass. Nose expresses notes of bubblegum, a sweet vinous quality and a suggestion of something else; perhaps honey. Taste consistent with nose, with the addition of a candied quality and just a trace of hops that is a bit muddled, but slightly evident at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a pleasant, even carbonation that leaves a residual prickle at the back of the throat between quaffs. There's also the slightest oiliness to the texture. Overall, a decent Quad, but a bit too sweet. Not sure how well this will hold up in the cellar - I get the slightest sense of a metallic quality which I don't think will bode well for extended cellaring.
