3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml. bottle poured in to a trappist glass. Dark brown colour with a dense, creamy tan head. Sweet and fruity aroma with candy sugar, overripe, almost rotting fruits, figs and resins, bourbon barrels, vanilla, Belgian yeast and an alcohol note. Sweet taste. Full body, oily feel, soft carbonation. Finishes sweet, fruity and spicy with alcohol and yeasty notes. Good and complex brew however, lacks a bit barrel character to be excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: pours dark, murky, muddy brown with milky off white head that looks like cream on a Starbucks coffee. Nose is brutal bourbon, wood, raisins, molasses and coffee. Loads of bourbon, vanilla, caramel malts and alcohol heat on the finish. The beer grows on you but it's somewhat rough and uneven for BB quad. ABV is noticeable for sure

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Murky dark-brown ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, taupe head. The aroma is a marriage of burnt caramel and bourbon underscored by hints of lactic acid, toasted oak and maple syrup. Light to medium-bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. The bittersweet flavor is both nutty and chocolaty including a warm, smooth, bourbon element. Finishes lightly tangy and sweet; capped by a gentle kiss of vanilla. Bottle courtesy of the ever-generous growler!
