4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Opaque deep brown with hints of garnet. Head is thick and tan and pretty dang persistent. Aroma is some earthy-musty dark fruits, some char notes too. Taste is considerably better. Same deep fruit character (cherry, fig, plum), red wine-like, some char too. Nice and velvety on the tongue, medium body (which I find a tad thin for a quad) and nice low carbonation. Great lingering taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Keg at Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, 20131025) The beer poured dark brown and clouudy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had vineousness, wood and vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and quite dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were vineousness, vanilla, wood, caramell, malts and low bitterness. Afertaste had wood and bitterness. A tasty brew spoled by barrel aging which resulted in too much wood infused flavours and aromas.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - 375ml. Black body with an average beige foamy/creamy head. Superb, complex, rich malty/hoppy aroma with Bourbon, oaky, and nutty hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its well balanced taste carries Bourbon, woody, and licorice notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Outstanding winter warmer.
