Dark brown body, not much head. Strong bubblegum and dried fruit aroma, prunes, slight tart element. Taste is very sweet, malty. Didn’t get a lot of oakiness in this, pretty subtle. Quite nice quad.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.7oz bottle from Party Source on close out. Poured into a Chimay glass. Hazy brown color. As with other examples, this is almost completely flat. An aggressive pour yields very little khaki head that soon fades to nothing. This seems less carbonated than others, with a very, very light amount of carbonation. Medium to bigger body. More dry finish. Nice complex aroma... Dark fruit, very light spice flavors of the quad are complemented nicely by noticeable dark vinous grape flavors. Big tannin, hint of chocolate. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, light spiciness. Alcohol is pretty well-hidden for a barrel aged flat 10% quad, just a nice light warmth in the finish, very light bite. Reasonably tasty quad aside from carbonation issues, but I enjoyed the other barrel-aged variants I tried much more than this one.
