Pours a nice brown head with solid retention. Color of ruby and copper.

Nose of dark dried fruits, caramel.

Big malt forward, nice bitterness from a relatively tight carbonation. A touch boozy but not overpowering - leaves a bit of lingering warmth on the finish.

Solid mouthfeel and big body on this.

It's a really nice quad and feels like it was brewed in the same style as the trappists I've had. I bet the cab barrel aged version of this is fantastic.
