Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a stone Vertical Epic glass
A: Pours a dark brown hue that exhibits hints of burgandy/red when held up to any light source. A cream colored head develops quite nicely soon after the pour and lasts throughout the entire drinking session, as does the lacing. This beer also displays a good amount of body when swirled around within the glassware.
S: Tons of grape and dark fruit qualities that remind me of welch's grape juice...in a good way of course. Caramelized and brown sugar qualities are prevalent in the aroma as well. Some oak-like character is detectable at the tail end of the smell, but could be contributed to an some oxidation from aging.
T: Again, imagine Welch's grape juice with tons of complexity attributed to residual sugar and fig-like flavors. Some alcohol burn, but not enough to distract from the robust...yet delicate flavor this beer exhibits.
M: Light carbonation, creamy during the middle with a a slightly dry finish.
D: Basically finished a whole bottle within a 20 minute session...it's that good!
Overall: This is as good, if not better than Westy 12! I've never been a huge Quad guy, but this has cracked my top ten of favorite beers all-time. This will be a constant in my cellar for years to come! A must try! Cheers!
