Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Yeasty, estery nose with lots of prune and currant aromas. Some rum-raisin like cakey sweetness as well. Body seems a little thin and it drinks kind of one-dimensional for a quad. Fruity and sweet. Finish is warming, but didnt get much hop bitterness on the finish.

Sweet sticky malts, plenty of yeast character, candi sugar, cherry coke, plums... all the good quad stuff. Not as delicious as the big boys, but lovely all the same.
