On tap at Bistro BA Fest poured a hazy brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of dark fruit, oak, toffee and ligh bourbon. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of dark fruit, oak, bourbon, carmel and toffee with a smooth lightly sweet finish.

2006 vintage on tap at the Bistro Barrel Aged Fest. Pours a somewhat hazy reddish-brown with a small, foamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet and a tiny bit tart with sweet malt, cherry, oak, bourbon, vanilla, and some brett. Flavor is very sweet but good with caramel malt, toffee, oak, bourbon, cherry, and vanilla. Brett really doesn’t show up much on the flavor at all. This is definitely an American-style quad and doesn’t hide that fact whatsoever. Sweet on the finish with medium body and medium carbonation.

Tap at the Bistro BA Fest. The 2006 quad. Pours darkish brown with no head. Nice chocolate, malt and sour aromas. Medium plus body with thick, cramy carbonation. Flavor is dark malt with dark fruit. Finishes dark and fruity, with wonderful quad aspects.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Sampled during RBSG 7/11/2009 on tap at the brewery. This quad pours a dark brown color from tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet with a touch of bourbon and wood. A medium bodied quad. The malts are fruity and sweet, with a touch of oak and perhaps a hint of funk. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Very sweet finish. I can’t really notice and Brett. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet with some alcohol bite.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Had a couple 4-ounce samples of this at the brewpub during RBSG09. Very interesting and tasty stuff, and a standout of the day. Dark red-brown color with a beige head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with funky brett, caramel, spices, bourbon, wood, and dried fruit. The flavor is rich and sweet with light funk, caramel, bourbon, and dried fruit. Just a wonderful mash-up of a ton of aromas and flavors.
