Baby Tree – Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project

9.0 % ABV
Purchased at Taylor’s Market ($9.99/22 oz. bottle) and poured into tulip glasses.

This quadrupel from Massachusetts-based Pretty Things pours an opaque, blackish-brown with a slight hickory head.  Baby Tree has a deep, rich nose of raisins, plums, and toffee, very promising for a quad, and offers many of the same delicious qualities on the tongue.  The first flavor impression is raisins and plums, followed by a nutty toffee finish that lingers pleasurably, and balanced out by an influx of hops on the finish.  It has a lot of the prototypical fruitcake and dark fruit tastes and the heavy mouthfeel of a classic quad, but it’s measured by an abundant sweetness (especially butterscotch) and American-ized with a more pronounced hop character.
