Bottle 3/2014

Great lookin beer out the bottle into 25oz. Goblet
Smell has faint cherry & maybe figs/raisins, if I hadnt seen the bottle I would've thought it was from Belgium.

Taste is big boquet of dark fruit some molasses but not overly sweet, Im really impressed of the slight tang/tart cherry hidden in this.

Solid mouthfeel, not overly carbonated great feel going down.

Overall, Im impressed with this beer, would love to do a 3-5 year tasting, I cant think of a better American made Quad, I wonder if they serve a 96/4 ratio on their premise in Cooperstown. Great job!!

3.7/5  rDev -10.6%

Look: Dark brown body, beige head.

Smell: Toasted malts, mild cherries, spicy yeast, some citric acidity, faint alcohol.

Taste: Follows the aroma step by step. Chocolate covered cherries inside a toasted cinnamon roll. Sour notes but not lip puckering. Bitter chocolate finish.

Feel: Medium body, nice tight carbonation.

Overall: A fine brew that is to me "misplaced" in category. I should re-review an older bottle in the future. Might be "too fresh" to enjoy thoroughly. Right now the brew stands out like a high alcohol Dubbel or BSDA. For a Quad it falls short. This bottle lacks complexity and depth. The flavors seem to be muddled together so nothing really stands out and says excellence. Like I said before its a fresher review but it still feels like I’m drinking a higher gravity version of their Abbey Dubbel. Still this is worth a shot.
