4.11/5 rDev -4.4%
Poured from a 12.7oz corked and caged bottle into a snifter
A: Pours a ruddy mahogany-copper color. There is a bubbly white head that fades quickly to a ring of light tan foam. Light, spotty lacing.
S: A combination of traditional quad aromas and whiskey. Figs, raisins and cherries integrate beautifully with warming whiskey sweetness and brown sugar. Definitely a detectable booziness.
T: Starts with standard quad flavors. Cherry and fig with a bit of clove. Booze becomes apparent in the mid-palate, but it's tempered by the overall sweetness. The finish becomes progressively more bourbon heavy. Oak, vanilla and molasses round out the finish.
M: Medium thick but very smooth. Low carbonation, sticky.
O: Certainly a good beer. It could probably use 6-12 months to let the alcohol heat fade a bit. The quad and whiskey flavors already complement each other fairly well. Overall, a good beer. Pricey, but interesting if you're looking for a twist on the traditional quad.
