look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: poured into a snifter to a ruddy brown with a finger and a half of dense white head that fades to a small mat and leaves good lacing
S: smells is alcohol, dark fruits and sugary sweetness
T: taste is dark fruits, candi sugar, cherry, tobacco and some alcohol. swallow is alcohol, dark fruits and some phenols
M: this beer is on the fuller side with soft and slightly prickly carbonation. the beer finishes just slightly dry
O: Not a bad quad and it definitely can't stand toe to toe with some of the best from Belgium. It's definitely well made and drinks well. Alcohol could be hidden better but the flavors meld fairly well.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Almost a mahogany hue with a big creamy and foamy head and okay lacing

S: Lots of fruits and candied sugars: cherries, dates, figs, brown sugar, raisins with some subtle coffee undertones; this smells quite good

T: Pretty boozy and not nearly the complexities as the aromas hinted at: dates, cherries, brown sugar, raisins, and coffee are all there but they just don't quite mesh

F: Medium body and sticky--pretty decent mouth feel

O: I like this beer; I just wish the flavors matched the amazing aromas
