258/341, 2012

A - Pours a deep brown/amber with a decent tan head. It's a bit darker and a bit less cloudy than I expect from this style, but still nice.

S - Nice big chocolately dark fruits, vanilla, bourbon, warming alcohol. Holy balls this smells incredible.

T - What's nice about this is that all of the elements in the nose are in play on the tongue, but in a different balance. This is really heavy on the dark fruits (plums, cherries especially), but the rest of these things come out to varying degrees. It's pretty sweet

M - big and smooth, nice.

O - kinda boozy, pretty sure this one is over the advertised 9.4...not sure if it would exceed Ohio's limits. But it's a good beer. By far, the best part is the nose, but it's good all-around.

Bottle 170/341 out of the '12 batch.

A: Pours a very dark red with some brown in there. Big fluffy and effervescent light brown head. Minor spots of lacing but not much. Quite decent head retention, however.

S: Decent bourbon but nothing overpowering. A nice caramel and dark fruit medley, mainly with grape, raisin and fig. Touch of brown sugar. Nice.

T: Again, decent bourbon up front but it's not huge. Really nice sweet caramel and toffee notes with vanilla I'd say. Mixes in with the sweet dark fruits quite nicely. Again, mainly raisin and fig but definitely some grape and maybe even cherry? Just a hint. Vanilla, brown sugar and caramel make everything very sweet well into the middle. Sweetness fades just a bit in the finish, giving it more of a dried fruit flavor with some oak and some earthy belgian yeast character. A bit of drying oak and yeast linger between sips with hints of pure bourbon. No noticeable booze at all, very smooth.

M: Relatively low carbonation, nice medium/heavy body. Smooth.

O: This is really an awesome quad. The barrel aging isn't overpowering like some Jackie-O's beers (or barrel-aged beers in general if I'm honest), it just adds some mild but noticeable character to the beer. Mainly contributes a very nice coating caramel and vanilla sweetness to everything and gives another aspect of flavor to enjoy.
