Poured from 333ml bottle into chalice.
A - Pours a very dark brown with a bit of a red tint to it. Big fluffy, off-white/tan head. Gorgeous lacing.
S - Not nearly as strong of an aroma as some quads out there. Dark fruit (plum, cherries) with sweet malt. Slight scent of alcohol.
T - Much like the smell, but much more rich. Dark fruit is very present with both plums and cherries followed up with sweet candy malts. Slight citrus hop bitterness. Chocolate.
M - Nice and thick. Improves as it warms. Carbonation is spot on.
D - This beer is super hyped up and failed to disappoint. Great beer. Had this during a tasting I hosted, but poured an entire chalice for myself and glad I did.
