Poured from 22oz bomber into Globe glass.
A. Pours 1 finger light tan colored head. Good retention. Moderate lacing. Color is a dark chestnut brown.
S. Belgian yeast, caramel, oak, pears, brown sugar, candi sugar, Big rich smell, a little bit of alcohol heat. Cognac gives the quad some barleywine characteristics.
T. Caramel, vanilla, light fruit, dark fruit, overall pretty sweet. Raisins, pears, dates, figs, quite a bit of candied fruit flavor. A bit of Belgian yeast on the back of the tongue. As it warms I get some rye flavors. Drinks a bit dryer as it warms.
M. Drinks pretty sweet, but finishes dry. Medium/full bodied. Medium carbonation.
O. Good beer. Cognac barrel aging detracts from a lot of the traditional quad flavors. Mellows out as you drink it. Pretty sophisticated flavors.

Thanks to Todd for sharing this one. Served in a Hill Farmstead tulip.
A - Off-white foam settles to a thin collar, wisps, and a few tiny specks of lacing. Mostly transparent orange-brown body.
S - Lots of oak and alcohol, but only mild cognac flavor. The base quad isn't very sweet, with more of a bready, spicy Belgian yeast vibe to it. Some red fruits and licorice bite.
T - The taste has a bit more vinous cognac, but it's surprisingly restrained in sweetness on the whole. Bready malts, some red licorice and treacle, and a moderate oak presence. Some not entirely disguised alcohol bite in the finish.
M - Medium body, dry texture, moderate carbonation, and some warming alcohol. Pretty appropriate for the style.
D - Somewhat underwhelming compared to Sexy Betty, but not bad either. This was probably the midpoint of the cognac-barrel aged tasting in terms of enjoy-ability. There's a bit more cognac flavor here, but a lot more alcohol presence - perhaps let this one mellow out if you've got a bottle.
