3.86/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

22 oz bomber pours a hazed brown color with an ample light tan head. Average retention but does leave some really nice looking lace.

Nose is brown sugared figs and sweet cherry juice...pretty damn good quad aroma - yeasty, cloves and sweet - whats wrong with that?

Taste has maybe a bit much on the toast and is not as rich as many a quad, but not too shabby actually. I have been totally unimpressed by all LOF offerings that are not sour, this one is fairly impressive though. I like the cascara, and I agree with the cherry and tobacco notes...maybe even add in a touch of coffee as well. Its not as sweet as most quads and mouthfeel not as thick, but still...I could see myself picking up another one or three of these. Not that I think it will age all that well, but a $7 quad bomber is a rare find indeed.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Found a date on the side that says: "Best enjoyed by August 2014." Now when this actually came out, I'm unsure of, however, I would say there are at least 10 bombers of this stuff sitting at the Breeze In, Juneau location that just showed up last week.

Anyways, I poured this into a chalice.

A: a rustic brown colored body with a one finger white foamy head that died within a half minute. Some lacing ends up trying to stick to the sides.

S: tart cherry with a slight coffee-ness trying to come through but honestly kind of comes through in an "ashy" sort of way - hmmmm...

T: some tart cherry and some other dark fruits try to balance the coffee and ash; aftertaste is somewhat a bland yet kind of tart cherry; dry ashy and somewhat coffee finish

M: she sits about a medium on the mouth and tongue, not really sessionable - though it seems like this one tries to be; carbonation runs fairly smooth

O: I say this is a decent quad, because I have become more engaged in this style within the past year, I think I can honestly say that this is a mostly ok quad that I don't think I'd have at my Easter meal.
