Bottle - So boozy and tons of the bourbon coming through, I would guess it wasn’t a beer. Cloudy maroon with almost no head. Total liquor, little beer in here just the bourbon. The fruit of the quad just peeks through, but not enough.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle I was scared to open because of reports of infection. Bottle 282/300. Pours a deep, opaque dark chocolate brown with a small beige head that leaves a film and ring atop the beer. Aroma of vanilla, oak, dates, figs, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, and cake. Flavor of caramel, brown sugar, figs, dates, raisins, oak, pecans, dried berries, and vanilla. Medium-full bodied, with a sweet, fruity, chewy, rich mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Definitely not infected. Really big and tasty.
