Clear, dark-amber pour with lasting top of beige foam. Kinda looks like a Belgian. Aroma is malty-sweet, with some ripe, dark fruit and alcohol. Flavor is a little fruit-forward, with dark cherry dominating. This overwhelms the malt and any attempt at spice or hops to balance. Finish is sweet cherry syrup. Better than expected, but not in league with other quads of renown.

Good thing there's not a usability score - this is the most difficult cork, on any bottle, I've ever encountered.

Good beer but a bit expensive for the quality. Perks up the warmer it gets, with some nice barrel sweetness. Clove comes on a bit stronger than I'd like on the nose but I found it faded after a good breathing. Medium head on a slow pour.

Darker golden brown with red hues along the edges. Quite frothy off white head with a touch of lacing. Aroma of fruits like raisins and prunes. Tastes of dark fruits, sugars, cider, and cloves. Spicy heat on the palate with a bite and a sipper for sure. Abv very well hidden and rather drinkable too. As the years go by this impy stout lover is quite enjoying quads more and more. Well done in my book!
