Bottle, thanks for sharing! Pours a near clear reddish amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of fruit with sweet grains, caramel and a bit of flora. Flavor has flora and light fruits up front with sweet grains and caramel supporting.

22oz bottle. Pours a lot of carbonation. No head. Alcohol, dark fruit, some chocolate. Very rich. Super rich flavors come together nicely. Body is a bit flat considering all the bubbles. Interesting brew with a lot of flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle in a glass. Pours amber/brown with an off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, spicy yeast, some light oak and whiskey, molasses, light bitterness, and caramel and sweet malts. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average texture. A decent quad but a little weird.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown coloured body with a muddy and ruby glow, all with a thick, fast-dying two centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of alcohol, bourbon, rum, vanilla, oak, pit fruits and a lot of raisins, all with some malt notes as well. Medium-bodied; Very boozey flavour of rum, bourbon, oak, vanilla and grain with a very warming feeling right after a sip. Aftertaste shows some complexity with brown sugar, alcohol, roasted malt, raisins, oak and cognac noticeable as well. Overall, a very sweet and even more boozey flavour with some grain and malts noticeable, but the oak, warming feeling and especially the alcohol are the main aspects coming through on this one. A good to decent beer, but nothing amazing nor worth searching out/aging a bottle for. I sampled this 65 cL wax-capped bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-November-2014 for US$15,99 sampled at home in Washington on 15-December-2015, a bit more than a year after purchasing it. Best After Date on bottle of 22-April-2015, printed on label at 12,1% abv.

Sample from 2014 bottle at the Beer Tasting on 11/07/2015. Clear copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of bourbon, dark fruit and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, bourbon and fruit. The finish is vinous oak and bourbon. Good beer all around.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy Amber pour with a quickly receding beige head .... Aroma is of candi sugar, dark fruits (plums), red wine, molasses and light whiskey notes smells for the most part of a quad .... Taste is of molasses, sugar plums, some dry red wine, grapes, candi sugar and a spicy rye whiskey on the backend .... Finished with a mix of dry oak, spicy rye whiskey, sweet plums and light wine .... Better than the stoic .... Mouthfeel is a little boozy and spicy... as it warms it gets spicier .... A quad barleywine brew in my humble opinion
