look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a very dark brown color with a small head. Smell is of dark fruits, alcohol, some malts. Taste is complex, dark fruits, yeast, some alcohol heat, malts, a touch of tartness, lots going on here. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Poured into a tulip glass. Two and half fingers of head on a deep brown colored body.
The aroma is a great blend of caramel, apple, pear and other bright fruits.
The taste has a big dose of caramel malt sweetness, some fruit, black licorice and mild bitter finish.
The texture is fairly smooth with moderate carbonation.
Very well done..

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Beer is dark reddish-brown with a large tan head. Good retention.

Smell contains dark fruits, raisin and plum in particular. Dry yeast scents accompany the fruit. The yeast cuts the fruit nicely, mellowing the aroma.

Taste contains juicy dark fruit; plum, red grape and raisin. Dry yeast, some spiciness. A bit of chocolate as well. Moderately sweet.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Rich and smooth.

Overall, quite a good quad.
