I like the ruby brown color- quite unique. The smell is pretty heavenly, too! The taste, though, tastes odd with the molasses and pommegranite when a quad can stand on its own. The mouthfeel is pretty simple, almost clean, but the molasses lingers...

Pours a dark amber color with a thin foamy head. Retention is decent. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses, high alcohol. Very sweet taste. Strong molasses, mild caramel and dark fruits. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Alcohol content very evident.

I purchased this a while back(about two years ago looking at the enjoy after date) and decided to pull it out and see what time has done to this. Enjoyed chilled in a Deschutes teku and allowed to gradually increase in temperature.

The color is dark amber like maple syrup with sandstone head
