Had this on-tap at the Taco Mac at John's Creek. Always seen it at the liquor store, and decided to give it a try.

Poured a deep garnet color with some persistent lacing.

Wow, I was very impressed with the deep cherries and light malts molasses flavors. Very drinkable, I thought it was a cherry-porter, until I went to BA, and saw that it was a quadrupel with 9.8% ABV. Never would have guessed it, It felt more like a 6~7%, which goes more to the smoothness and drinkability.

I could have easily had another. I thought the ABV was well hidden, due to the richness of the other flavors.
Very nice, I was pleasantly surprised!

Serving type: on-tap
