4.03/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottled on 04/26/12.

Pours hazy rust color with a thin off-white head that quickly disappears to just a hint of a ring on top and leaves faint spotty lace.

Smell is of ripe dark cherries, burnt sugar and caramel with a hint of musty yeast. Very inviting.

Taste is bready malt, sweet dark fruit (plums, cherries and raisins) up front with toffee sweetness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation. A steady stream of tiny bubbles rises from the bottom of the glass during the drink down.

Sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. I struggle to find a major flaw. Pleasant aroma, solid flavor yet, it falls just short of being a world class effort.

4.39/5  rDev +6%
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.
