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.

Appearance: a real looker this. Clear dark honey. Nice big head on the pour that recedes to a slight rim.
Smell: sweet, malty with a hint of pepper.
Taste: As expected from the nose. Alcohol well hidden.
Mouthfeel: Full with lots of carbonation.
Overall: nice quad.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Presentation-The bottle is really simple but at the same time really nice. I like how at the neck it almost has a "bomber" style look to it.

Appearence-A really nice bright, cloudy copper look. Almost between a red and gold combined. Just nice.

Smell-Lots of great malts for sure. You dont get too strong of a hop presence even though it does have four different types of malts. IDK how they were able to subdue it. A candy sweet smell thats soft and light.

Taste-At first you do notice that this quadruple is quite sweet. But its really really nice. Not too strong and just right. Malts are really mellow, alcohol is present. Almost some kind of belgian candy mix.

Mouthfeel-Suble carbonation, nothing overpowering. Settles nicely on the palate and draws and finishes very well. I would say wet. Very lively has a lot of feel to it.

Overall-IDK why but this is one of my favorite beers. I freaken love it. Just a nice beer to drink and enjoy. So good.
