Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
We brew this beer with four malts, four sugars, four hop varieties and we ferment it four times, using four different yeast strains. The complexity of the brewing process is matched by the complexity of this unique beer. Flavors of raisin, candied fruit and plum express themselves throughout.

A: Pours a cloudy dark ruby/mahogany color with 2 fingers of head that lasts for the better part of 5 minutes before resting at a thin cap

S: Yeasty esters, with some fruity and lightly spicy notes up front and darker fruits and alcohol in the back. Fig, raisin, plum all present

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the yeastiness and darker fruits followed by a mellow sweetness and a very light bitter bite. Alcohol warms but stays in the background flavor-wise. Finishes with a dry maltiness

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry

O: A nice American quad with quite a bit of complexity and depth. It makes for a nice sipper in the colder months. Definitely on the drier and less sweet side of the spectrum, but that only allows for more complexity. Would definitely benefit with some age, but it's also fine fresh. Give it a go
