4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown, medium head, aroma is pretty intense, cinnamon, cloves, molasses. Taste is bright up front, then extremely rich and sweet, with a bitter and boozy aftertaste. Itís like an Abbey quad that is coated in a gooey, bourbony gel. Really terrific.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber. Dark brown pour, almost opaque, thin off-white head. Nose is malty and sweet (it smells like a chocolate malt more than a beer). Mouth is medium-full, oily and sweet, malted milk balls, chocolate, brown sugar, a touch of barrel and ABV warmth. It was hot and muggy so I shared this (was more of a cheap watery lager night weather wise), but I had a hard time finishing this. Iíve had several of these limited BA editions from FW and while Iíve really enjoyed a few of them, this one was a serious disappointment. They claim this was suppose to be a Quad, instead they made a milkshake. Wayyy too sweet and wayyy overpriced. Donít believe the star-struck hype.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. as part of the 2014 batch, viscously dispensed to a snifter showing a black/brown hue that exposed a hint of ruby highlighting as the liquid diminished, a modest layer of tan head foam that expeditiously reduced to a ring, with some dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was malty & sweet, with esters as prune & concord grape, hints of cocoa, and barrel induced vanilla & coconut. Full bodied, with a syrupy texture, and low carbonation that contributed a little spritz to the palate, the taste expressed an even sweeter presence of caramel, dark brown, almost burnt sugar, and molasses, along with some earthy bitterness, and alcoholic warmth. As a rich, after dinner sipper, but a little too close to cloying for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up this bomber a year ago. Split 2 ways at fridge temp.
A - Pour is a dark brown but looks pretty much like molasses in the glass. 2 finger tan head that faded to a thin line.
S - The aroma is really nice. Vanilla, molasses, syrup, ginger, honey, coconut and spices.
T - Well Firestone Walkerís barrel program continues to impress. Itís thin at first but then this bouquet of flavors erupt. Vanilla, coconut, woody undertones with sweet toffee, chocolate, tootsie roll and pie crust. itís sweet, not cloying and the ABV is so well hidden. No way this is a 13% beer.
M - Thin up front, dense finish with a very mild carbonation
O - Exceptional beer. Wish I had enough to age for a few years.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 2015 vintage. Very dark brown pour with a slight ring of tan head. Wonderful aroma of sweet Belgian quad, fruity yeast and brown sugar... complimented by the barrel treatment. Lots of bourbon barrel taste, but very mellow and smooth. Only faint quad elements remain... super smooth and rich sweet bourbon and molasses flavors. Decadent.
