Creamy mouthfeel with an overarching yet unusually pleasant note of prune. Luscious brew.

L: murky brown ... possibly the murkiest and brownest beer I've seen, and not shockingly looks just like a dunkelweizen. percolates like a stout but doesn't push a big head, maybe 1/3-inch of tan foam that dissipates quickly, although it does keep a huge collar. no stick or lace.

S: wine ... sour grapes, raisins ... like a red wine with some licorice thrown in; a slight tart/sourness to it from the wheat (?); as it warms, smells like candy ... super sweet

T: SWEET ... man is it sweet, like a grape syrup; very Belgian quad tasting with loads of fruit, dark fruit, dates, plums, lots of grapes and some wine notes ... I don't taste the alcohol but can definitely feel it; as it warms, becomes mostly dates/prunes with plenty of sweetness

F: very thick ... almost syrupy, but it's packed full of carbonation, so it's drinkable considering ABV

O: the most quad-like beer I've tried that wasn't a quad. and while it has some licorice notes (which I HATE), it's got so, so much more ... great wine/grape notes, plenty of fruit and not just dark fruit but lots of that, too, and while the alcohol is burning my throat, the flavors are so intense that I can't taste liquor. fantastic brew and a style I definitely will revisit.

A: Copper with brown core, murky. Intense streams of bubbles come off the sides of the glass. Soapy, velvety cream-colored head. The murkiness intensifies as the bottom of the bottle is emptied, with real (gross) chunks of sediment float in the end. I'm usually ok with sediment, but this is completely unappealing. Slightly mollified by the cool, shiny bottle art.

S: Lots of Belgian quad characteristics; raisins, fairly sweet malt, some bubble gum. Chalky, alcohol warmth.

T: Prunes, raisins, nicely sweet and warm malt. Alcohol warmth on the finish and even the breath after a sip. Much lighter flavors than I'd expect.

M: Slick, thick heavy body. Warm rounded maltiness. Carbonation is softened but still on the aggressive side.

O: Granted, this is my first experience with the style, but I feel like it was pretty much a decent quad with more faults. The already dull flavors of raisins and prunes with an added ethanol note? Not to mention the bubble gum, which I have never found appropriate in any style. I'm all for experimentation and innovation, which this style has in spades, and I did enjoy this beer on the whole, but I respectfully won't be returning.
