On draft at the top Gainesville. 9 oz snifter. Listed simply as "Barrel Aged", so I am assuming brandy barreled. Pours dark ruby brown, nearly black in the center. Aroma is what seems to be big whiskey barrel and dark fruits, dry oak, more sweet fruits. Sweet dark fruit, black cherry, grape, vanilla, with some sherry-like notes. Medium heavy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Good stuff and happy to have found this. It's really a nice beer.

Serving type: on-tap

Had on tap at Burnhearts in Milwaukee.

Pours like any other quad, nice head, looks great.

From there on out, things were a touch down hill. Not sure if this was infected or not, but there were some light-moderate sour fruit notes. They were in competition with the darker, sweeter flavors you would expect in a quad.

Overall, not bad, even if slightly infected.
