bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Pours dark ruby with a fluffy beige head. Smells quite evergreen with underlying notes suggesting a quad. Medium body with smooth, frothy carbonation. Flavor has some chocolate, and dark malt. Hints of dark fruit. The evergreen isn’t here. Suddenly it is. Something like a quad with evergreen. Quad on my brain. Finshes rather dry. My mouth is just curling around this stuff. Like it.
