3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice quad overall, tasty and very well balanced but a bit one note. Pours a cloudy amber with a thick tan head and a good amount of sediment . Smells of maker's Mark and cherries. Taste is very smooth and creamy, with lots of cherries and a bourbon finish. Not too much complexity in the taste though. Had in the bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010 Vintage, Batch 2
From notes. Tasted in early 2013 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle that I purchased at Lush and shared at SvT’s house. Pours clear bright auburn with an average tan head that leaves a thin ring of lace. The nose is full of bourbon maple, caramel, toffee, toast, a dry yeasty note, and a just a hint of cherry. The flavor is more funky with more cherry than the nose with the caramel and maple bourbon really the focus. The body is full with lively carbonation and a long funky cherry and lightly sweet bourbon finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014 bottle. Best by 08-2016, batch number B14234-1.
This was served in a chalice.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy dark amber to brown color, shimmered nicely in the light. Half finger-ed white foamy head maintained a nice level-ness and dissipated within about a light thirty seconds leaving a speckled light lacing sticking around the glass.
The smell started off with a cooked sweet cherry and a sweet to bready spicy clove, good.
The taste was mainly sweet and added a decent spice to the flavor. Weird but okay sweet to spicy aftertaste leading to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping quality about it. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled and was good for me.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good quad I could have again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, showing a murky, brownish amber color, with a frothy layer of off white head foam, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The nose started with alcohol readiness, then a bit of circus peanuts/banana esters, dried fruit, caramel sweetness, and barrel induced vanilla & coconut. Medium+ bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the aroma, bourbony warmth, light creaminess to the texture, and some dryness on the finish. A bold, tasty, and well designed Quad.
