look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - pours a murky brown with almost no head to absolutely no head.

S - I don't get much of a smell. It's sweet and I can smell the alcohol but it doesn't put a lot off.

T - first of all it tastes good but it's unlike any other quad I've had. It's not complex at all it's such a light fruit flavor and a slight alcohol warming effect but the taste is so simple I feel like this is the worst review I could make.

M - light to medium bodied with heavy carbonation.

O - good but my least favorite for it's style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a dirty , muddy brown colour with one fingered head that retains fairly well

S - Bourbon whisky, dark fruits, plums, raisins, sweet malts with vanilla

T - Similiar in taste with loads of dark fruit, bourbon, but more oak, charred, earthy flavours including a sweet caramel, toffee and banana.

M - Medium carbonation and medium bodied

O - Wow! The aromas are amazing an it is a great quad that can be sipped slowly with delight. Love it and highly recommend. Enjoy!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Slightly transparent deep red-orange. Lots of bubbles running through it fueling a slowly receding off-white head.

Barrels come through nice with vanilla and some wood and spirit. Warm spiciness, sweet, and fruity.

Warming alcohol, spice, sweet cherry fruitiness, and barrel character.

Carbonation was surprisingly soft. Fairly smooth and creamy. Very nice.

Sip and enjoy.

Batch 10 - 75% Malbec Wine Barrel 25% New Oak

Hazed ruby-brown colour, no head or lace at all. Smell is of red wine, oak, dark fruit, raisin and plums, vinious, rich malt and a bit of dark sugars, really nice nose on this. Taste is a bit of a let down compared to the nose but still quite nice, dark fruits, red wine and oak, yeast, plum and raisin with some dark bread, mild sweetness and some slight oxidization. Very light carbonation, medium-full body. This was quite tasty and the nose on this is incredible, would have liked more carbonation though, less carbonated than most of the style.
