Tap at Sugar Maple. Deep ruby red brown, nice beige head. Deep dark raisin, dark plum, prune, brown sugar, toffee. Really well executed, could compete with any classic Belgian examples. Mellow, hides the alcohol expertly. Smooth yeast and malt tones. Exceptional balance. A complete pleasure.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12.7 ounce corked bottle with cage poured into the Ovila gold rimmed chalice glass. Nice tan head that slowly subsides but stays around thanks to the proper glassware. Sweet malty aroma of prunes and currants. Well balanced complex mouth feel and taste of ripe prune and plums with some banana and yeast. The alcohol is well hidden and this beer becomes better towards the end as it warms. Nice sweet lingering finish. One of the best quads made in America.
