Very smooth in all respects! Nothing new for most folks on here, just what I'd consider a great "sipping beer."

Only knock against the beer is the lack of a distinct finish. Has so much distinct aroma and a wonderful feel up front that I wanted more from the back end of the taste.

What a beautiful ale in both color and body. Deep ruby color, reminiscent of cherry, this quad has varying hues in different light. The head is light and fizzy and collars thickly around the edge. The effervescent bubbling keeps that collaring alive.

The scent is weaker than most quads but somewhat varied. Plum like aroma is at the front with a touch of crabapple. Hints of malt and cherry can be found amongst weaker scents of molasses and prune.

The feel is strong and thick and is certainly a sipper. There appears to be no alcohol tinnieness but there is a brief harshness at the swallow.

A bit of cherry, malt, sugary sweetness, date or prune, and a touch more cherry can all be found on the tongue. A bit tart and a touch of fig comes near the end. Overall, it's very good and with some minor tweaks to the flavor and feel it could be great.
