Bottle shared at ChrisO’s pre-GBBF 2013 Shindig.Cloudy light brown, off white head. Nose is big bold and sweet. Barrelly wood, banana, Sherry, bourbon whiskey, vanilla. Too over powering for me.

Bottle with some friends 75CL. Looks like a copper pennySmells insanely sweet and a bit of oak. I don’t get any bourbon on the nose. Taste is like brandy and a belgian quad had a baby. finish is a bit too sweet and its not a complex beer at all but certainly can use more aging.

Clear amber pour with an offwhite head. Taste is malty, caramel, bourbon, wood, fruit, white wine and a little hint of vanilla. Really weird take on a quad but very nice.
