look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750 ml corked bottle beautiful bottle and label

A: pours a deep brown almost black 1 inch tan head minimal lacing

S: first smell you get is bourbon. But a bit of dark fruit

T: bourbon cherry plum all mixed beautifully to create a smooth dangerously drinkable beer.

M: full bodied fairly sweet and perfect for a Belgian strong dark ale

O: another spot on beer from Kane. Could be aged - but doesn't need to be with how smooth it is.

Pours a murky, dark brown with a couple fingers worth of foam. Head retention and lacing are OK. Appearance isn't this beer's strong suit. Fortunately, all other aspects are very strong. It starts with an aroma that competes with the finest Belgian dark styles. Lots of overripe dark fruit - plums, raisins, dates. Belgian candi sugar is evident. Some hints of barrel-aging are noticeable in the form of cherry-like oakiness.

Plenty of upfront sweetness, though not at all excessive. Slight bitterness comes in shortly thereafter, but the flavor profile is sweet overall. Despite the classification as a Belgian Dark Ale, this is very much like a quad. Very fruit-forward, with hints of cherry and vanilla from the barrel-aged components. Nothing more than a hint of alcohol, besides the usual warmth you'd expect from a 10+ABV brew. The mouthfeel holds up nicely, with nothing like the overcarbonation of Kane's first anniversary ale. Here, the carbonation is nicely restrained while holding up well over time.

What Kane has done here is craft something that is comparable with the finest Belgian quads. An awesome beer, and a must-try.

4.04/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

750ml bottle poured into a wide-mouth wine glass.

Appearance
Hazy copper with ruby red highlights. Has 2 fingers of fluffy tan head.

Nose
Cherry, grape, raisin, Belgian yeast, candy sugar and booze.

Taste
Earthy Belgian yeastiness and peppery alcohol. Molasses and candy sugars. Lighter notes of black plum, fig, cherry and red grape. Notes of bourbon and dry charred oak.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, warming and smooth.

Overall
Complex and warming. Definitely a big step up from last years anniversary beer. I can't wait to see what's in store for next year.

Snagged a bottle of this and brought it to a family gathering. I split it with two other people. All three of us loved it. It pours very dark, almost black, with a light head. Whiff of fruit and light booze. The taste is where it comes alive. Slightly boozy, candied sugar, fruity plums. Maybe a little light on the mouthfeel. Some carbonation going on. They really nailed the style. The blending and aging work well. Pricey but delicious.
