DRAFT REVIEW: Apis IV Quadrupel

Big malt scents of toasted bread crust, plum and currants sink into the nose. On the tongue, toasted bread and caramel carry sweet plum and raisins for a classic Belgian profile; that fruit sweetness coaxes out subtle sugar hidden deep beneath the malts. Despite its big malt body, Apis finishes surprisingly tidy as a dose of warming alcohol and roasted malt bitterness converge, leaving behind an enduring raisin bread note after the swallow.
