OMG. Open the bottle and the aroma hits you in the face. Don’t pour inclined into the glass. Pour it like a wine. Nice head becomes a thin film but it doesn’t fade. Dark brown, almost black, see through. Aroma of a giant chunky banana, raisins, some chocolate, liquid bread, a tiny bit floral. Medium body, low carbonation, fruity on top, explosion of flavors in the middle, alcoholic at the end.

A: Pours a dark brown cola colour with 1 finger of sudsy head which quickly dissipates to a thin layer without any lacing.

S: Dark dried cherries, plums, raisons, fig and almonds with hints of dank wet wood. Middle notes of sweet dark malts with mild rum notes on the finish.

T: Cherry cola upfront followed by soaked dried fruit of plums, raisons and plums. Middle of rum, vanilla and wet wood that leads in to a dark rum finish.

M: Medium bodied with snappy carbonation and a dry finish.

O: The most fruity quad I've had, with lots of cherries and dark dried fruit. Less alcohol in both the nose and mouth than what I expected. While less complex than other quads, this is extremely enjoyable and I would definitely seek out again.

The beer has big notes of fruit bread, dark cherries, plums, and dates in the front. There's then a caramel and sweet over ripen banana. There are hints of alcohol and lots of winter spice.

The flavor on the finish is a bit lacking with a lighter medium mouthfeel.

Pomegranate-brown with creamy parchment head.
Fruit cake, glace cherry, cherry and straight booze on the nose – big and sweet.
Toffee cake, dried cherry, some yellow apple, a clove hit, and a spicy end with a sarsaparilla comeback.
Dark candy sugar end and sweet linger.
Med, well chewy, round.

Doesn’t throw like 11% at all. Deep, faceted, BSDA. Sweetness kept in check by spice. A blue cheese beer.
