16oz growler picked up a few hours ago. Brew enjoyed from an ovila chalice. Through the growler looks deep purple with ruby high lights. In the glass, looks more brown with ruby tints. Headless aside from a thin ring of Bibles on the surface. Smell is all bourbon. Some dark fruit and plum but smothered in boozy chocolate. Smells rich and decadent. The quad definitely shows its tasty self on the flavor profile but again the booze is in the drivers seat giving a heavy bourbon glaze on top of the plumy quad. Super easy drinker and silky but without the heat you'd expect. Really wonderful treat to stumble upon today. Very glad i got a taste.

I had this at Good Beer in NYC.

It pours out in a murky brown rust color.

It smells of sweet whiskey and cherry.

The taste is amazing. It has a smooth, smooth flavor of raisins, vanilla, and sweet bready malt. Easily my favorite non-American style beer that I can think of. It just has so much drinkability and complexity to it.
