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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On the Seventh Day of Christmas 2014 the beer gods gave to me . . . a bourbon barrel aged quad? It had me at hello. Poured into the Duvel glass for obvious reasons that I just discovered. Pours a murky brown color with light tan foam head. Aroma of dark fruit and loads of cherries. Some yeast mixed in. Sweet caramel taste with dark fruit and nice frothy hop hit. Tons of cherry and then a fading-in vanilla on backend. Some oak spice hits early and then lingers for some time after, but in a way that compliments they sweetness that also lingers. Excellent.
