T - Sweet plum juice, alcohol, really ripe fruit, not great.

too much alcohol flavor not enough any other flavor. The coffee didn't make an appearance and the cherry was not in the forefront. The only thing that sold me was .... did i mention $2 14 oz drafts left over from tap take over at that price Im going to sample it all night long.... could be much tasiter!

Had on tap.

Pours a hazy dark red with a thick white head. Great head retention as well as lacing that hangs around for a very long time.

The aroma is full of cherry and other dark fruit along with a bit of spice and herbs.

Tons of cherry up front in the aroma along with dates. It almost reminds me of cherry kool-aid at first that's how strong the cherry is. This transitions into a more herbal and tobacco taste as the flavor progresses. Banana and clove are faintly present in the background along with alcohol becoming more apparent in the finish.

Overall, there is just way too much going on here. It is a little bit messy with nothing seeming to meld just right. A nice attempt at a unique quad but I feel it is just too overdone.

c+

22oz into a tulip. Pours a mid tone walnut, little head with an encouraging pour, minor lacing.

Aroma is dominated by a strong phenolic undertone. Yes, the promised cherries, dates and tobacco are delivered but they do not define as the phenolic note does.

Dates begin the flavor which is low in sweets. Dry sits in for bitter. Strongly pronounced dark cherries appear in the finish and is the highlight of the taste. A hint of solvent alcohol appears as the flavor evolves to an undefined sensation.
Slick bodied medium mouthfeel.
