Bottle shared by Jay at tasting at my house. Pours brown with tan head. Nose and taste of whiskey, oak and malt with undercurrent of ripe dark fruit. Some beet or cane sugar in background. Comes off as an average quad that was heavily benefited by the barrel aging process. Medium body.

750ml wax top. Pours murky brown with a small off white head. Huge fruit and whiskey to the nose. Some wood and lingering sweetness also. Very smooth drinking and packed with dark fruit, whiskey, caramel, and more. Better as it warmed up. Awesome beer

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark brownish red pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, cocoa powder, hints of slight caramel, toffee, molasses notes, lots of spice, hints of earth. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, spice, lots of dark sugars with caramel and molasses, slight grassy notes with hints of oak, bourbon, and slight vanilla, finishing fairly bitter, dry.

Bottle. Copperish amber with a big white head. Aroma and taste are both dominated by the barrel. Some strong fruitiness and prominent malt. Medium mouthfeel. Something is a little off about this one but it's not horrible.

Pours reddish orange with a lasting sticky head. Aroma is strong barrel, plums, figs, and roasted malt. Taste is dark fruit, belgian yeast, chewy toast, and strong barrel character. Delicious.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep reddish caramel in color, moderate frothy sandy head, fairly nice lacing.   Moderate whiskey nose, slight dark pitted fruit.   Noticeable alcohol.   Very vinous like on the tongue, dark pitted fruit, with whiskey like warmth on the backside.   Seems like a bunch of whiskey infused raisins or something.   Not as big in body as I would have liked.   Lots of dark pitted fruit and alcohol on the finish.   Tangy/tart finish.   Loads of alcohol linger.   Really needs some malty sweetness to balance this one out.   Its decent tho, but HOT!

Shared a 750 of this with friends today. The smell is a bit off putting, but it tastes alright I guess. I donít get a ton of barrel from this and while I get some sweetness from the whiskey, itís not very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours orange brown with one finger muddy white head. Aroma of dark fruits and faint whiskey. Taste initially sweet with whiskey and malts, dark fruits. As it warms the sweetness fades. Finish sour. Palate thick.
Initially flavor excellent but just couldnít maintain it. I just donít think the underlying quad is strong enough to support the barrel aging. I love quads and barrel aged beers so had high hopes that this couldnít quite live up to.
