12 oz bottle into mini snifter. Pours a cranberry-copper color with a fingernail of gray head.

Aroma is faint, but consists of rye bread, sticky prunes, raisin, chocolate malts, brown sugar, and plum.

Flavor is mostly alcohol heat up front, followed by astringent graininess, with faint trails of crabapple, prune juice, and burnt brown sugar.

Feel is mostly thin due to the high alcohol, has an antiseptic heat, and finishes dry (unsurprisingly).

Overall, way too much heat, not enough sweet. I think they really pushed the ABV on this and instead should have focused on the more quiet, mild flavors a Quad can bring forth. Probably would pass next time.
