3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a caramel color with a 3 finger white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma was very sweet like molasses, some citrus, couldn’t smell the 11.8 abv. Taste was sweet with a little bourbon flavor and a little tartness, alcohol hidden well. Palate was pretty good, a little thinner than I expected. Overall I’m impressed with this beer. Quads are not my favorite style but this one was good.

Just a small hint of cherry on the aroma and the taste. Smooth, malty, darker golden brown, very well balanced beer.
A bit of bourbon in the finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of cinnamon, bourbon, vanilla, toasted oak, molasses, dark fruits, Belgian candi sugar and fresh apple juice. Appearance is a murky amber/copper. Taste is sweet, fresh fruit juice overtones with notes of cinnamon, molasses, candi sugar, dark fruits, plums, cherries and a big amber malt body. Finish brings big bourbon booze, vanilla, oak and subtle coconut. Overall, very nice and big sweetness with a hint of roasted espresso. Very complex and nice bourbon notes. A rating.

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a murky medium brown, with a large khaki head that persists and leaves good lacing. Nose is very faint aroma of bourbon and vanilla. Taste is very smooth, with mild vanilla and bourbon notes on the forefront. Very well-balanced, smooth, and tasty. A very nice BB quad. Well-balanced, smooth, not harsh or hot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells of bourbon and sour cherries, taste is overwhelmed by bourbon, much more than most barrel aged beers. Not my favorite, I wanted a quad that tastes like a quad. Still decent enough though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ Tapwerks, OKC. Bourbon character aroma, but not cloying. Dark Amber color, thin white head. Nice wood flavor in taste. Cherries noticeable in aftertaste, but not too sweet. Full bodied. Pretty nice beer for a 2014 beer.

Subtle cherry on top of nice bourbon flavor layered into a great Quad. I can't wait to get another bottle.

bottle. murky brown/amber with small tan head. dark fruits, caramel, oak wood, lightly tart aroma. oak and strong bourbon flavors, butterscotch, cherry fruit, faintly sour. plastic band aid phenols. large bubbled annoying carbonation. kind of a jumbled mess with an unclear concept. i don’t get it. not my favorite from the smokestack series.
