Well, I'll be. This one has a pink hue in the foam, which billows up nicely upon pouring, but settles to a collar with haste. Sticky lacing, sugary.

Aroma has a slight cherry cough syrup-ness to it. Some booze. Subtle sweet bread. Nothing powerful or interesting, really.

Flavor is cherry candy, too much of it. Sweet cherry and booze. Is this a quad or some sort of kriek? Perhaps a bit of spice from the yeast, but it is just beat up and left for dead. I can't get past the cherry. There are other flavors in there, but they are muddled.

Feels alright, still not zing or softness of some quads. One dimensional beer. Couldn't take this one, poured into the bushes.

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

22oz bottle.

Pours mahogany with a half inch head of beige. A few wisps remain on the surface with some dotted lacing for the duration.

Aromatics lead off with raisins, caramel, dark rum, plums, and candied fruit. Hints of berries and coffee follow through.

Medium bodied with a sticky, syrupy mouthfeel.

Sweet malt with rum-soaked raisins and caramel coated candied apples starts the palate. Boozy fusels with hints of cherry cough syrup and roast follow through.

Finishes with a lingering sweetness, warming booze, and a roasty, cherry-like aftertaste.

Interesting beer but too sweet and undercarbonated. The roasty character doesn't mesh well either.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours copper in color with an off white eggshell head and has pretty good lacing.

S - Dark fruits that seem ripe, along with toffee and sweet malts.

T - Cherry is there, though muted somewhat, with a coffee overtone. Has a fig/date/prune flavors throughout.

M - Lighter bodied with a high carbonation. Very wet finish.

O - Definitely a quad but the extra additions aren't extremely noticeable.
