Cherry flavor is muted; in fact, most of the profile is dominated by an astringent fenal alcohol taste. Boozey in a bad way. Some flat medium malt & the faint cherry is all that is there. Good brewery, but definitely not their best.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.

L: Poured a deep mahogany color with thick white head that leaves ample lacing.

S: Sweet candy malts and fresh fruits. Cherries and plums on the nose.

T/F: Sweet malts and cherries plus dark fruits from the quad. Lacking some of the complexity of the Belgian quads. Moderately carbonated and smooth.

O: Solid but unspectacular. A bit too sweet and fruity and not enough Belgian complexity to be truly satisfying. Still... a tasty beer that hides its ABV pretty well and an enjoyable sipper. Fun to sample.
