375ml bottle into a goblet. Batch #12
Pours a hazy dark brown with just a thin, wispy head. Some ok lacing but nothing really special.
Bourbon is quite prominant in the aroma and this makes since as 91% of this batch was aged in bourbon barrels. The vanilla and smoke is complimented by raisin and plum along with a very pleasant yeasty note. It is very reminiscent of pipe tobacco. Quite Nice.
Loads of bourbon on the taste but it is somewhat muted. This, of course, contributes lots of vanilla and char notes along with a touch of caramel. Dark fruits permeate underneath with raisin and plum. Sweetness is held in check with just a light stickiness washing over the tongue. Light bitterness as well.
Overall, this is an awesome beer. The quad/bourbon combination is interesting and works quite well here. I am very interested to try some of the other barrel blends as they sound very interesting. While this beer is a bit on the pricey side, it is well worth the occassional splurge.
