My last beer of a four beer tasting evening. Poured at home into a 16 oz. glass pint.

A: The pour of this beer was perfect. Just the right amount of beautiful cotton head (1") at the top of the glass. Body is a frosty deep cherry red. Incredible cling to the lacing. Very creamy head. Very pleased.

S: Smells of ripe bing cherries and rich caramels with hints of chocolate, cocoa and cloves.

T: Excellent dried cherry taste with a well balanced mix of fruity hops. No bitters. Succulent sugars that end with a dry finish. Lush with dryness. Yum. That's all, yum.

M: Creamy, full bodied. Micro carbonated and alcohol is well balanced with the hops. Very good beer.

D: If it wasn't for the alcohol you could drink these all night long. Pair with pork dishes, vanilla ice cream or panna cotta.

12 oz bottle Poured into a cognac snifter.

Appearance: Outstanding lacing, dark mahogany in color

Smell: Sweet, herbal, boozy and sweet dark fruity smell. Hint of roast and a malt sweetness.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Heavenly full body. Thickly sweet of dark malts, Deceiving alcohol leaves little warmth until the finish. A trace of hop help to balance. Herbal & earthy as well.

Notes: another amazing brew by our friends in Cooperstown

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Nice deep mahogany color, hints of red in there, just barely lets some light through. Head sticks around, creamy and off white. Lace holds up nicely.

Smell: Licorice, sweet, malty, grape like (somewhat like wine), light alcohol. Toasty and warming, very full.

Taste: Sweet up front, tart wine-like grapeness. A little sour, with a nice warming finish from the alcohol. A little bitterness, hops/toasted malt/ licorice flavors contributing. A little sour plum/banana.

Mouthfeel: creamy and lightly carbonated, just enough. Really enjoyable.

Notes: Complex to say the least, each sip gives me something new. The alcohol is very present in this one. Oddly wine-esque, much more so than other quads I've had. This would be a great dessert beer. Also, it happened I was sipping this while snacking on some cantaloupe and for some reason that match up went really well.
