Bottle: gift from wife. Poured a dark auburn color with a tannish head. Aroma of molasses, cherries, cookies, dark fruit and alcohol. A bit hot upfront, but goes away. Flavor varied throughout. Molasses and a fruity sweetness; caramel, dark fruit and wine notes. Very good

Pours a dark brown/black color with a tiny head. Aroma is sweet dark fruit, Belgian candy sugar, and cherries. The taste is thick and sweet. Lots of Belgian candy sugar, raisins, dark fruits, alcohol and a touch of cherry cough syrup (in a good way). Very good.

It poured a dark amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of raisins, vanilla and oak. The flavor was of dark fruits, molasses, fig, raisins, cherry, bread and oak. Awesome.

Poured from a bomber into goblet. I haven't really been into Belgians recently but ended up liking this. It's not overtly a Belgian quad. The yeast is muted and there are many other flavors going on to take you away from your typical quad expectations. For fans of the style, this may be a bad thing. The bourbon barrel aging was well done, with a bit of whiskey on the back end. The wine barrel and pomegranate gave the whole beer a nice subtle tartness that went well with the fruitiness. A good and very interesting beer.

22oz bottle picked up at the state store
Pours hazy brown with a small beige head, light lacing. Aroma is dark fruit, wet wood, sweet caramel and oak. Flavors are woody, dark malts, caramel, dark fruit and bourbon
Very nice, smooth and well balanced. No hot alcohols. I like this one.

Beautiful mahogany color. Big dark fruit, slight vanilla and wood on the nose. Sugary, alcohol. Taste is similar. Less on the alcohol. Rye comes through slightly in the finish. Medium full body.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2014 Dark fruit, plum, oak, vanilla, spices. Beautiful mahogany color. Good mouthfeel, decently complex. Though not worth the price tag.

Tap at Busters. Snifter glass. Mahogany, plum color with healthy but non-persistent head. Dark fruit is predominantly the aroma with a near whiskey presence felt. Taste is strongly plum and raisin with an overwhelming quad sweetness. You can feel the alcohol but it doesn’t override the quality flavor notes. Really solid mouthfeel. A little burn at the end but overall impressed.

Tmoney99 (11092) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex dark fruit and woody aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations were met with a solid brew.

Tap: Glad to find this on tap as my cheap ass never was willing to shell out 17$ for a bomber. Ruby red with mahogany highlights, semi-clear & rimmed with a thin, beige collar. Aroma has notes of toasted rye crackers, prune, black cherry drizzled with caramel, moderately vinous red grape skins, faint toffee coated red apple, & a good bout of residual sugar sweetness from front to back. Flavor carries through with a nice caramel apple vibe, mild hints of butterscotch & vanilla popping in & out in a controlled manner. More complex notes of maple, Candi sugar, & vinous oak lead into a slightly booze forward, red wine-like finish. Decent heat for 12% ABV. Quite enjoyable.
