4.04/5  rDev -2.2%

300mL bottle from Total Wine (Kennesaw, GA). 4.99. Best by 5/29/16- so bottled 5/29/13? Served in a goblet.

Pours opaque, ruddy garnet hued chestnut with a healthy three fingers of fluffy beige. The foam faed to a thin cap that leaves onoy small bits of lace.

Aromas of pitted fruit, caramel, yeast and sugar. Fairly straight forward for the style.

Taste gets a bit more complex than the nose. Burnt port barrel, sweet dark fruit, bitter fruit skins, caramel malts, brown sugar, yeast, slight cocoa, earth, raisin bread and small bite of booze. Flavors open up nicely as it warms.

Creamy feel on a medium body with carbonation that perhaps comes on a little too strong for my tastes. Tangy dark fruit, caramel and yeast finish.

A notch or two above a standard American brewed quad but not quite up to the level of my favorite Belgian brewed. Still, this is a welcome addition to my readily abailable quad arsenal.

A-pours a chestnut brown with a fingers worth of creamy looking tan head that just does not disappear! Lovely!

S-caramel malt, dark fruits and light cocoa

T-taste is very nice! Caramel malt backbone with dark fruit sweetness, cocoa, light hop bitterness, and spices. 11% ABV is not noticeable.

M-medium body, crisp carbonation

Overall I forgot how I do really love Quads and this one was done so well! Highly recommended!
