Poured from a 750ml bottle (2011).
A: Pours a deep reddish-mahogany with a frothy tan head.
S: Syrupy cherry and grape, dark grain and a heavy deep maltiness. Notes of brown sugar, vanilla, buttery sweetness, more dark fruit, mild sweet spice.
T: Complex yet slightly harsh. Juicy cherry and grape esters as expected from a quad with a bit of kriek in it. Brown sugar, prune, and anise. Slight unpleasant roasted note and a harsh yet quick bite of alcohol. Buttery and fruity in the finish.
M: Lively carbonation, medium-bodied.
O: Pretty complex but has some flaws in the flavor.
Serving type: bottle
