Based loosely on the Smokestack Series’ The Sixth Glass, this abbey-style quadrupel is separated into a number of oak bourbon barrels where it ages for varying lengths of time, some for up to three years. Cherries are added to make up for the “angel’s share” of beer lost during barrel aging. Selected barrels are then blended for optimum flavor. The resulting beer retains only very subtle cherry characteristics, with toffee and vanilla notes coming to the fore.

Pours a ruby red brown. Quater inch white tannisj head. Aroma of vanilla and bourbon (of course), maple syrup, cherries. Up front flavor of oak and alcohol..irish whiskey, vanilla. Great quad flavor. Cherry flavor comes through quick and early and then gives way very fast. Bitter dark chocolate at the finish. Lots of flavor depth in this beer. Creamy body, low carbination. Overall an interesting beer with tons of flavors very unique. Never had anything quite like this .

2011 Release, bottle # 0034. Well worth the wait. My first taste of the BBQ from Boulevard. Knew it had to be good as their "The Sixth Glass" Quad is my favorite. Vanilla, cherries, a slight buttery feel. Great carbonation, not too much, left light lacing. Drank from trappist glass. Color was a maple syrup slighty cloudy. Fantastic.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 2010 batch 2 bottle pours a not clear brown mahogany with off white head. Nose is full with oak and cherries up front and some sweetness. The taste is big and warming with tartness and booze, a solid grain backbone but not overbearing. The wood comes through more than the bourbon but the flavor is robust, the ale blending boulevard does is mastered here. The finish is balanced slightly dry and lingers with sugar and grain. There is a strong yeast flavor that lingers as well of musty fruit, peaches mostly. For the strength it is mellow but it can kick your ass. For a big quad this is a really good beer. -- 2011 batch 1 note, Big and strong but smooth for 13% this is more oak up front and the bourbon slowly comes in, very nice. There is an acidic tartness in the back but the cherries are mild. I like this more than 2010 so I am looking forward to aging it. I?d give it at least a 4. ---

Pours dark, opaque brown with a tinge of purple. Smells of dark fruits and alcohol. Starts moderately sweet, tart, but not overly sharp with very long finish with mild bitterness. Delicious. Thanks to my good buddy for bringing this to the holiday party.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2012 In my opinion this is Boulevard’s best offering. The cherries are subtle as well as the bourbon, and the slight vanilla taste is nice.

One of the better american quads out there. This bottle was a 09. Very smooth and easy to drink, the bourbon isn’t overwhelming. Another great brew from boulevard.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 24, 2011
750ml bottle. Reddish brown with a small head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma of dried fruit, cherries, bourbon, oak and toffee. The flavor is sweet sugary malt, boozy bourbon, cherries and a light tart yeasty quality. Medium body with soft carbonation and a silky, slick mouth feel. This is a nice beer, bit on the boozy side but the cherries are a nice touch.

Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a hazy brown with a small white head. Aroma of anise, bourbon, booze, red fruits and yeast. Flavour of anise, bourbon, molasses, honey, red fruits, booze and wood. Slightly too sweet. Nice complexity. Great.
