This brew poured to a nice mahogany color that has ruby highlights, has a thick light tan head that has incredible retention and has left a ton of lacing. On top of the cake of bubbles are some brown specks, could that be yeast? Also suspended in the beer are some floaties that I would also imagine is yeast from the secondary fermentation. The aroma here is of a roasted, bready and a biscuit malt profile that has a nice fruit scent, candy caramel is there as well. The flavors of the malts are nice, my palette is telling me the same as my nose was - roasted and bready malts, dark candy, fruit, along with a nice yeast presence. Has a nice warming feel, but in no way has and alcohol flavor, well hidden and as I finish this really sneaks up on you. This brew goes down very smoothly and all I can say is I am so happy I was able to finally track this down, not sure why I had such a hard time in this area finding it. Now I know that this is a different brew than the quad but I do feel that this brew is a clear step down from that one.
