Pours a hazy brown with hints of orange in the light and yeast sediment floating throughout despite the most careful of pours. Only a faint white head develops leaving nearly no lacing. That said, lacing appears more as the beer warms and body is disturbed.
Smells of dark fruit, something sweet, fermentation, yeast, and alcohol. Expecting sweet sugar, and deep fruits in the flavor.
Sweet fruit, alcohol bite, slightly peppery, and a pleasant hop finish. There is a lot going on here, but I am having trouble identifying each specific flavor. The pepper like flavors becomes more pronounced at the finish as the beer warms, with the sweet sugar becoming more apparent as well.
Four offers a fair amount of carbonation, medium body, and a generous candy like quality to the overall flavor character.
Four is a crowd pleaser, diverse flavor, great to sip on, and announces its presence by bottle's end.

4.4/5 rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a small goblet.
A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/8 inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly side patch of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick solid ring behind.
S- It could be the incorporation of the four different yeast strains but this smells like it might be tart/sour. Slight booze fume.
T- Nevermind. No sourness, just some awesomely smooth Belgian candi sugar plus some vanilla and caramel notes. Incredibly drinkable for the ABV. Butter, burnt sugar, not very bitter. Also a bit of dark fruit.
M- Slightly zesty. Medium-low carbonation and a fullish body.
O- Haven't had this in so long and it's really a crime that I don't purchase it more often.
Edit: No, it was not intentional that I gave this beer a score of 4.4 but yes, it is awesome.
Serving type: on-tap
