A: Deep burgundy, good clarity with a fair bit of sediment. Big head at first that melts away after a few minutes.
S: Raisins, candies, toffee, burnt sugar, rochefort-esque phenolic profile, alcohol.
T: Lots more raisins and candy, very smooth and rounded. Something about it just doesn't quite 'pop' enough, but it's a very solid quad.
M: The dryness makes this strong beer very easy to drink.
O: A nice example of the style that never quite reaches the greatness of it's inspiration.
