3.78/5 rDev -0.8%
Deep amber, almost purplish hue. Little visual carbonation and never any head.
Sweet, sugary, dark fruits. Plums, grapes, dates. I really have to draw in to get a good whiff.
Bready as hell. Plums, even grape soda.
Heavy body, light on the carbonation.
Really sweet, yet drinkable for 11%.

Into the Revolution tulip from the 4th year party, it pours a glinting dark reddish copper with a thin layer of tan foam on the surface that was slow to materialize and quick to fade. Minimal spotty lace around the edges, lacks good surface coverage.
Light aromas of brown sugar, clove, dates, Belgian yeast esters.
Rich and slightly syrupy, some residual sugar, deeply malty with nutty and sweet toffee caramel sauce flavors. Light heat from the 11.5% abv, but overall it's pretty smooth. Medium to full bodied and chewy, slightly sticky on the lips. Overall it's worth trying, but still looking for a really great American quad.

Appearance: Admittedly, my pour was not very hard, however there was no head. What little amount of carbonation that brought itself to the surface dissipated as quickly as it appeared. This could just be my experience, however. The color is fun to look at as it is ruby-hued and dark.
Smell: Dark fruit (namely plum and fig. The "dark fruit" smell always reminds me of figs and plums). The smell was ester-oriented as opposed to phenolic, while also containing the candi sugar aroma. After smelling this for like 3 minutes straight, I do detect a chocolatey aroma. Very sweet smelling, is what I am getting at.
Taste: Spicy, malty, sweet (candi sugar), and hints of grape/wine. As it warms up, I get the earthy tones that are from the hops, according to the menu description. I also taste some grassiness. I had this when it released and I like that I am now getting the spicy tones and a more pronounced bread-like malt flavor as opposed to just sweetness. That could be attributed to a change in palate or the fact that I have had this bottle for a few months, now.
At the finish, there is a lot of warmth from the alcohol. One thing this beer does especially well is hide the alcohol. I also am hit with another bout of spice at the finish.
Mouthfeel: This is thick. The beer switches from sticky and syrupy to grainy as I move it from my mouth. This is, by far, my favorite part about the beer.
This was a great beer for the price. I paid 10 bucks for each of my bottles, at the brewery, and I am glad to have purchased a few. It seems to be holding up well after a few months. I wonder if this will hold up for another year?

Medieval brown. Small bubbles raising to add to the burnt white head. Little light shines through, but you are treated with a deep red.
Sweet and thick. The sweetness is fruity (plums, grapes), and a pleasant Belgian yeast afterwards.
Follows the nose, and comes tumbling in extra sweet. So much so I would almost say it is a cider at first. The hops and yeast seem muted, but it is decadent.
Thick and syrupy, with small bubbles squeezing in.
This could be well placed in an old castles next to tomes of forgotten lore, just have a desire for sweet.
