Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Average amount of spotty lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention. Smelled dark fruits - plums, figs, raisins, dates & purple grapes, caramel, molasses, light raspberry, light cherry, and artificial vanilla. Tasted much better than the smell. Got plums, raisins, figs, dates, dark grapes, molasses, raspberry, black cherry, vanilla, caramel and faint oaky wood. Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. This was a good quad. I think I underrated it a bit, but it was tasty.

Tastes of plum, raisin, fig, with a refreshing tartness and yeastiness, a complex and very smooth finish, and more fruit flavors as it warms. This is a bit of s surprise, and a delicious quad.

Butters (3746) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Deep mahogany pour with very little head. Fruity with raisin and fig and toffee and molasses. Sweet, but not overly sweet or syrupy. Pretty much hits all the notes you’d expect for the style. Not over the top amazing, but still really solid. perhaps with a little age?
