32 oz Counter Pressure filled growler from Barrel and Barley in Woodstock, GA poured into a snifter.

A - Deep copper, nice one finger medium beige head with steady carbonation, great lacing.

S - Booze and cherry cough syrup up front with dates, figs and plums in the background along with some other fruity belgian esters.

T - Dark fruit medley and coffee notes up front. A harsh alcoholic finish that leaves some black cherry and medicinal notes on the palate.

M - Spot on. Medium bodied, and refreshing if it weren't for the aforementioned lingering qualities.

O - This is a fine Belgian Strong Dark, but a real miss in the Quad department. Too light in color, too much noticeable alcohol and I'm still not even positive if the coffee cherries were a positive flavor profile to add...

New Belgium's Lips of Faith Cascara Quad: ale brewed with dates and coffee cherries, 10% ABV, just over a fingers worth of head; Appearance: very red amber; Smell: cherry/light coffee, light green leaf, fairly light scent overall, faint hazelnut; Taste/Mouthfeel: strong taste of mellow coffee, touch of hazelnut, bit of date, slightly cherry-like taste (but darker), mild aciditym bitter tang on finish; pretty good
