3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of "hannont". Colour...cloudy dark brown with little head. Nose...figgy, plum like and raisiny with a funky twist. Palate...similar to the nose, up front, then a boozy hint comes forth as does a somewhat wine like note. The funk is there too but not as much on the nose. I donít get much Bourbon here, but the overall flavour profile is decent.

Pours dark brown almost black with no head. Aroma of booze, dark malts, and Carmel sweetness. Taste is sweet caramel, booze and oak. Not bad but really boozy.

Bottle shared on 5/11/13 for Annetteís birthday. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of bourbon, caramel, cherry, toffee and rum. Malty and bourbony flavor with caramel and black cherry character turning to chocolate and blackberry before a grape and alcohol finish. Complex and delicious.

Quads tend to be too sweet. Thanks Brad for opening this up and Iím so thrilled you did. A quad with that wheated oakiness imparted by Pappy barrels. Iím floored. I could drink the entire bottle myself. Very good mouthfeel, sweetness is caramel, honey and oranges. Finish is vanilla oak and pineapple. Itís a very drinkable beer.

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours murky cola with a bubbly tan head. Nose is mostly sweet bourbon with a fruity malty base. Super smooth and fruity in the mouth, with tons of raisins and bourbon sweetness. Smooth and slick in the mouth. Havenít had many bourbon barrel quads, but this was pretty tasty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared in line at GTMW ticketing. Thanks to...whoever. Dark brown, slightly ruby pour with a wisp of tan head. Noticeable alcohol legs. Supremely smooth bourbon on the nose, vanilla, oaky tones, fig and plum. Not much residual candi sugar, which is nice, dark winter fruits, and a pleasantly present bourbon. Slick, smooth mouthfeel. Outstanding, the highlight of the day.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared in the GTMW ticket line, pours a really dark amber with an off white head and lacing, the aroma has a good amount of dark fruit and plums mixed in with the bourbon and oak, the flavor has a sweet front end with the bourbon and oak balancing it perfectly in the finish, tasted like a big beer but it went down smooth, nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle from Jackie Oís. Pours a deep copper amber with an off-white head. Nose is sweet malt, some vanilla, wood, bourbon, and goodness, along with some plummy dark fruits and more complimentary bourbon notes with some candy sugar as well. Flavor follows with big sweet malt, some nice candy sugar and then that bourbon-vanilla goodness hits and all is well. Medium in body and lovable candy sugar meets vanilla bourbon goodness finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a dark almost black ruby red color with no real head to speak of. Bourbon and barrel notes on the nose. Flavor had a touch of vanilla there, some barrel there, touch of dried fruits. Not bad in the least. Quite an enjoyable brew.
