Quite light and low on palate for the style. Amber with ok head and lacing. Finishes musky, with too much wood. Only faint hints of dark fruits in this. Tap at takeover even at Monk’s Cafe.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Medium amber with orange highlights and a big fluffy off white head. Very sweet profile, lots of dates, soft banana, barley candy, vague fruit acids. Not a bad sipper, but I would never peg this as a quad-- where are the phenols, the yeast character?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The name is a reference to coffee cherries. Hazy dull amber-brown with a fairly rich head for a high test beer. A little phenolic, tons of sugars, very sweet taste, big blast of alcohol late. Estery, but this seems rather unfocused.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Heavy dark bread, nutty and caramel for the malt, moderate herbs, cooked orange and orange peel for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast with notes of date, dried cherry, brown sugar and alcohol. Head is tiny, fizzy, tan with fair lacing and ggod legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky brown. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bittersweet. Palate is medium to full, creamy with a soft carbonation and has a moderately alcoholic and slightly sticky finish. Nice drinking Quadrupel. Of course its heavy body and texture, and its alcohol is fairly noticable, but there’s not a bad aspect to it.
