3.59/5 rDev -13.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a hazy cola color. Minor carbonation and sediment visible. Thin beige head that settled to nothing. No lacing.
Smell: Dried fruit including raisins. Mild notes of alcohol.
Taste: Port wine and raisins.
Mouthfeel: Nice and smooth mouthfeel. Round and velvety with comforting warmth from the alcohol.
Overall: I don't drink quads often, but I do like this beer. It is not complex, but has a nice dried fruit flavor. The alcohol is tame, and provides a comforting warmth throughout the drink.

4.43/5 rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance - Very dark, but seemingly just a very dark red like Coca-Cola. I have seen by far much darker beers but it's definitely no lager. The head was very minimal, but thin and tan. Poor lacing, but could be due to a less than decent poor.
Smell - Very, very malty and some fruity undertones when breathing back out after taking a sip.
Taste - Literally hit me in the face with the first sip. I couldn't you what exactly it is because there's a lot going on in this brew. It tastes bit like figs or cherries to me up front and finished with a pretty strong alcohol finish, hitting pretty hard on the edges of the tongue.
Mouthfeel - Has a pretty full-bodied feel to it and at 11% it starts to feel pretty prickly on the tongue.
Overall - This beer brought a look of disbelief to my face. The smell of the beer made me expect something completely different than I tasted. After you let it warm a bit it only gets better (to a point) and you can taste things that we're necessarily present before. Hope that helps and enjoy!
