4.43/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12 oz bottle, dated 06/27/12. Poured into a Westy XII Chalice.
Appearance: Dark brown, opaque, half a finger of head without much retention, minimal lacing.
Smell: Raisins, figs, grapes, apples. Quite sweet.
Taste: Extremely sweet with a nice malty syrup quality. Same fruit character as the nose, with mainly figs and apples. Hides the 11% ABV amazingly.
Mouthfeel: Moderately carbonated, a little less so than other quads. Sticky, wet, smooth.
Overall: Really a world-class quad. Perhaps a little too sweet for some people, but so easy to drink, hides the alcohol so well, it's really a treat. $7/12oz means that I won't enjoy this every day, but on special occasion, it's the best quad sold in America, and I'm lucky to have it readily available.

4.35/5 rDev -3.5%

Pours an opaque deep brown with caramel highlights and more beige, dense, creamy head than body. Thick sheets of lacing line the glass walls. The head lingers and is so dense, it climbs above the rim.
Prunes, raisins, figs, bruised apple and burnt sugar form the initial aroma. Gives the impression of a rum-soaked fruitcake. Notes of cola add complexity.
Flavor is intensely sweet and bready, with prunes, pear, banana, and raisins underlying. Toasted, caramelly malt forms the backbone, but the dark fruit character dominates. The finish is slightly dry and boozy.
Body is on the full side, with low carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
Very complex, estery character, with enough alcohol to warm the belly, but not detract from the experience. Truly a beauty of a beer.
