4.96/5  rDev +20.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a snifter glass. The beer pours dark toffee brown with a minimal light tan head that lingers briefly, leaving a cap of lacing atop the beer. I can see tiny bubbles rising within the beer from the side of the glass, but the color of the beer is opaque so you aren't going to see a ton anyway. Dark fruits hit the nose right up front. I get figs and plums with candi sugar and dark roasted malt. I don't even smell much alcohol. The flavor of dark fruit jumps out on the first sip, hitting the tongue with plenty of fig, plum, and raisin. There's some nice dark roasted malt and candi sugar flavors as well, bringing some nice maltiness and sweetness. The flavors nicely mask the alcohol here. The body is medium to full with moderate carbonation. The finish is slightly dry. This is dangerously drinkable for such a big beer. This is an excellent beer.

4.23/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. I'll start off by saying I love the DR series from Saint Arnold. It's always fun trying to get your hands on the current years batch, without even knowing what you're getting into. This years quad pours a dark brownish color with a half inch head that recedes quickly, when held to the light you can see the awesome ruby color come through. The smell is somewhat weak, but has nice fruit hints. The taste makes up for the smell, with tons of fruit up front and a nice spice at the finish. As the glass warms the spice comes through even more. Very little heat on the tongue considering this one clocks in at 11%. All around a great beer, and one I hope they consider releasing down the road as a seasonal or everyday seller like DR9 or 11.

This has to be the most easiest drinking DR to date right off the start. Dark fruits dance all over hiding the 11%+ on this bad boy. Tried this on cask, draft, and in bottles and its pretty much consistent. Great job to Steve for creating this recipe.

Door mijn moeder gekocht terwijl ik in Galveston aan het brouwen was. Zeer donker, bijna zwarte pruimen kleur. Mooie, stabiele schuimkraag doet aan warme chocolademelk denken. Nog behoorlijk alkoholisch, zal van veroudering profiteren. Heeft de geur en smaak van pruimen, gebrande suiker, rozijnen en cassis. Een interessant bier. Heerlijk!
