Big thanks to my buddy Eric (turdfurgison) for this and my 100th review.
A: Pours a cloudy brown with a finger of tan head.
S: Caramel and bready malts with just a hint of banana. Warming brings out port like aromas and maybe some grape Nehi.
T: Sweet bready and caramel malts upfront followed by mellow alcohol heat. Dark fruits follow into some tobacco a hint of banana and then some smoke at the finish. Complex beer and if I sat here for an hour, I'm sure many other flavors would emerge.
M: Medium body with great carbonation. Sweet but not cloying.
O: I really enjoyed this beer and will drink more of this. Thanks again Eric.

330ml bottles. 2008 and 2009 vintages poured side by side.
A: Both vintages pour a murky mahogany woody brown. 08 definitely has less carbonation, but a thin dark tan collar briefly stuck around. The 09 has a nice dense finger of foam that slowly faded into a fuzzy film and collar.
S: The 09 is definitely a bit brighter and sweeter smelling, and the 08 has a few hints of musty damp oxidation, but other than that the noses are pretty similar with scents of dark fruits, raisins, leather, pipe tobacco and mild spice.
T: Both are actually fairly similar but the 09 flavors are a bit brighter. Powdery chocolate and dark fruits dominate, especially candied dates, raisins, and figs. Vanilla, oak, spice, nutmeg, and slight caramel, come through as well with a surprisingly earthy hoppy finish, slight sticky booziness, and slight bitterness.
M: Fairly similar as expected on both vintages. Maybe a bit more carbonation on the 09. Thick body, chewy mouthfeel, heavy and smooth, very soft carb, mellow, well-aged, and integrated.
O: Age has done wonders. 08 is amazing but I like the brighter (yet still very mellow) flavors of the 09 better. Both are some of the best quads in the world.
