Poured into a snifter. Bottleneck says 022713. Still don't understand why these guys use twist-off caps. Must be a Texas thing.

A- From a heavy pour comes a reddish dark brown body with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small patch of light surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a ring behind on the glass.

S- Belgian candi sugar aroma is rich with dark fruit notes such as black cherry, plum and raisin.

T- Flavor is much like the aroma with more Belgian candi sugar and dark fruit with the yeast tying everything together nicely. Alcohol is barely noticeable for a beer with such a high ABV. Quite sweet with a sugary finish.

M- Slightly sticky with medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- A very nice quad from a brewery that I wasn't expecting much from since their DIPA and Winter Stout were a bit lackluster. I also like how it's in a six-pack format even though it's such a strong beer.

Poured from a bottle into a Chimay chalice. Very cherry cola like with dark appearance and red highlights. Not much head and the bubbles are coarse like soft drink bubbles. Would prefer a quad go have smaller bubbles.

Nose is inviting. Alcohol is clearly there, but buried in dark fruits, and a good balance of sweetness and maltiness.

Taste is great, especially as it warms. Some booziness, but the dark fruits really show up on the finish. Slight aftertaste from the alcohol.

Mouth feel is a little thin but not bad.

Overall a great Cowboy Quad worth picking up and sipping.

Bomber poured into a Trappist glass.

Comes out brown looking dark and imposing in the glass. Ruby highlights are revealed in the light. Fluffy khaki head settles quickly to a thin topping.

The aroma is full of raisin and fig dark fruitiness, brown sugar, spice, and alcohol.

The flavor hits on the same cylinders as the aroma bringing a nice complexity. Lots of dark fruits, spice, and sweetness in brown sugar and caramel. Toasted bread and plenty of alcohol warmth round it out.

Very smooth drinking, with tingling carbonation, and a medium body.
