Served in a tulip glass, poured from an 11.2 oz. bottle.
A - Color is a lovely dark brown/black, yielding a brown tint in the light. Tan Head is fluffy and retains well, leaves decent lacing.
S - clove, cinnamon, caramel, dried fruit. Great smell, albeit slightly boozy. Malty; little to nothing hop wise
T - Sweet raisins and brown sugar dominate with the roasted malt. Alcohol is present and hinders it's otherwise great flavor.
M - Body is fairly thick and smooth but the carbonation is high. A great balance of weight and fizz.
D - The Boozy smell and taste are what's holding back this one. I can definitely finish it and enjoy drinking it, but it's not an everyday beer. It's an occasional treat; good to share with someone else as well.
Overall - Paired it with some dry wild boar sausage; turning out to be a very good combination.I did enjoy this one, but I must try the other quads out there before I decide on what's my favorite. Give it a try if you've never had it.
