Poured from a bottle into a snifter

A Pours a muddy brown color that is topped with a off white head.

S The is fruity and sweet with cherries, raisins and a hint of spicy clove.

T Very spicy clove notes with some tart cherry. Also a bit of an herbal note. The ABV is very well hidden.

M Full and smooth with a bit of a coating quality with a bit of a warming feeling as it goes down.

Overall this is an excellent American made quad that is well worth drinking.

Enjoyed at the Sugarbowl in Edmonton. Poured from a bomber into a narrow chalice.

A - cloudy, dark amber brew with a light tan single finger head

S - really delightful on the nose with very fresh floral and grassy notes

T - very light hop character overtaken by complex floral and fruit. Dried apricots and peach. Super tangy and ultra lip-smacking. Sticks in the back of the throat. Some medicinal notes in the finish.

M - fairly heavy with moderate carbonation - not oily, but definitely coats the mouth and throat; delightfully warming throughout

D - powerful but drinkable; leans a little toward being a sipper as one would expect with the big alcohol profile

Great beer - competes will with the Belgian and delivers a powerful and complex punch.

A:Slightly hazy...dark amber/brown...like ice tea with mahogany hues.. A 1-finger tan head is on top, settles fairly quickly, minimal lace.

S: Nice! Tart cherry, dark fruits, malt, sweet, brown sugar. Typical quad with cherry kicker.

T: Excellent. A top level quad. All that you would expect (dark fruits, malt, brown sugar sweet, toffee) in a quad...with a nice tart cherry addition. This is a very nice surprise.

M: Medium heavy...chewy...creamy. Strong carbonation with a nice fizziness lends to nicehead after each swirl.

O: I love it, A great quad with the addition of cherry. The cherry is perfect. Not overt as in many a fruit beer. Perfect harmony. I am sold.
