Misc.: Cork & twist cap
Poured a caramel, amber, murky color with about a finger of khaki tan head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Average amount of spotty lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention.
Smelled dark fruits - plums, figs, raisins, dates & purple grapes, caramel, molasses, light raspberry, light cherry, and artificial vanilla.
Tasted much better than the smell. Got plums, raisins, figs, dates, dark grapes, molasses, raspberry, black cherry, vanilla, caramel and faint oaky wood.
Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
This was a good quad. I think I underrated it a bit, but it was tasty.

4.03/5 rDev +4.4%
From a 750ml corked bottle Into a tulip glass. The cork was very difficult to remove.
A: pour is a hazy ruby red color with two fingers of thick kaki head. Head faded quickly leaving just a film in the surface of the beer. Nice lace rings on the glass. Those fade eventually as well.
S: strong aroma of molasses and raisins. It's got a touch of sweetness in the aroma. Defiantly a smell you can taste.
T: the beer has a sweetness about it. The best I can say is fruitcake and raisins. Molasses toward the end and a bit of bitterness.
M: rich and balanced with enough carbonation to keep it easy drinking.
O: one of the better beers I've had from BBC
