On tap at the Livery. The aromas and nose are a rich barrel tone with some sweet dark fruit flavors such as dates and raisins. This beer could use some time to mellow out but still a tasty beer.

Great Taste, 2009. According to the program, aged in a Founders Canadian Breakfast stout barrel. Nice collaboration there. I liked this somewhat less than the Dark Trippel, although I liked the blurring of the lines between barleywine and quad, as this was very heavy on the caramel and dark fruit, but with the characteristic Belgian Quad yeast finish. This was boozy, although not hot. Finish is warming and fruity, with vanilla and oak contributing. Nicely done.

4/25/2009: Livery Barrel Aged Agent 99 was one of the highlights of the day for me. It is brown in color and has a citrusy aroma. The flavor is sweet, malty, lightly fruity, and has a hint of vanilla. It has a mellow mouthfeel and reminded me of an English-style Barlywine. This is a great beer with a great name. If you arenít familiar with Agent 99, the you better GET SMART!

Draft. Pours a muddy, ruddy amber with little head but good lacing. Aroma is hot with booze, cherry, vanilla and malt. Tastes great, with less alcohol in the finish than I was expecting. A lot of tart fruit, yeast and subtle barrel flavors. Excellent, uncategorizable brew from one of MIís best.

Shared by BBB63 at DLD. Not normally how Iíd start off a massive beer tasting, but OK! Sweetish bourbon whiskey aroma, sweet florals, oxidized and muddy flavor. Oldish and very strong, but shows some decent complexity. This is the first of many beers where I couldíve spent a lot more time with the brew and written a lot more but the general insanity of DLD prevented me from writing top-notch ratings. Hopefully I will have a chance to revisit these beers in the future.

Draft sample @ MBGSF 08. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a small off white head. The aroma was sweet caramel, fruity, vanilla, oak and yeast. The flavor had more caramel malt sweetness, fruit, yeast, light spice, and a splash of vanilla. Medium to full bodied, the alcohol is present but not distracting. This is a pretty decent quad.
