12 ounce bottle poured into a Three Philosophers chalice.

Appearance: The beer pours a dark mahogany that almost looks like a cola, with hints of red speckled throughout. Held up to the light, more red highlights come through (due to the addition of Kriek Lambic?). Freshly poured, the beer had a finger of a tan head that dissipated into a lacy halo of foam settled up against the glass.

Aroma: Strong aromas of cherries, dark bread, and chocolate are what I first get, followed by caramel, plums, and figs. Very rich, very pleasant.

Taste: Cherry and plum, followed by dark bread, a little brown sugar and caramel, some earthiness and just a touch of dark chocolate. The slight tartness of the cherries intermingle well with sweetness of the brown sugar and caramel, and then are balanced nicely with some slight bitterness of the dark chocolate. While not a traditional quad, the addition of Kriek really gives the beer an extra depth of flavor and makes it stand out among the typical quad. This is a really delicious beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with just enough carbonation so as to leave the palate clean, and just the slightest amount of alcohol warmth in the finish.

Overall: I loved this beer. It’s become my favorite American Quad, as well as one of my favorite beers period. Simply outstanding!
