look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Deep, murky, swampy reddish brown. Globs of lacing. Not pretty, but means business.

S: Sweet candied fruits, molasses, grainy, apple, fig.

T: All over the place with fruit: currants, dates, figs, cherries. A very sweet wine-characteristic with a touch of acidity. Out of this world with sweetness, yet incredibly balanced by malt and a slight hop touch to keep the full profile anchored in beerdom, without sailing off into total wine territory.

M: Big, chewy body. Full. Perfectly carbonated. No alcohol burn.

O/D: The kind of beer you can drink a lot of because of the superior taste, but shouldn't because of the ABV. All the Quad flavor with none of the Quad burn. What's better?
