Tasting at Matt'sTerminus (3755) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 12, 2018
Dark brown color. Mild aroma of bourbon and caramel. Robust body, but the alcohol is very strong too; caramel base, a bit earthy, light bourbon, vegetables, spirit.
Not an impressive Quad, unbalanced. Not a fan.
Pours deep dark brown hue with a nice soapy beige head and very sparse lacing. Nose of boozy dark malts, vanilla, slight tartness going on-maybe from the barrel or the young age of this beer? I dunno. Flavors are very similar to how it smells-big dark fruits, lovely vanilla, wood, and a very dry finish. the alcohol is well hidden in the flavors but it does warm you up. Body is slightly thin being that it is 12%. Very straight forward barrel aged brew here. Well done and tasty. I am suprised how dry this is.

Medium brown. Thin head. There is a bit of cherry on the nose, and a little bit of brown sugar. There is a lot of brown sugar character, the fruit dropped off a bit on the palate, A touch of alcohol, and generally a malty character with soft fruit notes. Maybe it's a bit messy, but that's about it. mcberko (20528) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2018
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown / black with a small beige head Nose brings out notes of bourbon upfront, with dark dried fruits and toffee. Flavour is along the same lines, with bourbon barrels, a hint of smoke, caramel and toffee. Wonderful bourbon character, with a slight smoky character. Excellent. beerplace (2437) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2018
