Pours a clear, copper color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, cherries, hops, slight spice, and a hint of roasted malt. Fits the style of a Quadruple. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of cherries, alcohol, sweet malt, hint of hops, and a hint of spice. Overall, good appearance, aroma, feel, and blend, but the body is sadly lacking in strength.

22 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, bottled in 2/2013. Pours hazy reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, prune, fig, pear, apple, banana, toast, chocolate, dark candi sugar, brown bread, clove, herbal, leather, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity esters with dark malt notes; and good strength. Taste of raisin, prune, pear, apple, fig, toast, chocolate, brown bread, leather, banana, dark candi sugar, herbal, clove, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of dark and light fruits, toast, chocolate, banana, brown bread, leather, clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity ester and dark bready malt flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Quadrupel style. Nice balance and complexity of fruity esters with dark bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. This improved a lot as it reached room temperature. A very enjoyable offering.
