2014 batch, just hit the east coast.
A: Pours an extremely dark brown with a little red. Tall, frothy medium brown head. Head fades at a moderate pace with decent retention. Zero lacing however. Not even the lightest little speck.
S: Heavy caramel from the bourbon. Sugary sweet aroma. Sweet generic berries and dark fruits (raisin and fig primarily I'd say). Lightest hint of chocolate? I would say loads of belgian candi sugar but I don't even think they used it in this recipe. Sweet and heavy, regardless.
T: Bourbon character up front but not as pronounced as in the nose. Seriously sweet. Loads of caramel, sugar and candied dark fruits up front. Light cocoa in the middle and a heavy, dark bread malt mixing with more caramel. Nice toasted sugar in the aftertaste with light oak. Lingering oaky, earthy aftertaste.
M: Thick, heavy, viscous and sweet. Lower carbonation.
O: Seriously big and sweet quad. Barrel-aging is quite nice, adding even more complexity and....sweetness with caramel and toasted sugars. Loads of bourbon, fruit, chocolate and sugary sweetness. What's not to love?

A: Deep brown in color. The head was tan/white and dissipated quickly.
S: Rich Belgian malts, toffee, tobacco, dates, and charred caramel.
T: Everything that a Quad should be. Big, bold, and flavorful. Sweet malts, great bourbon notes, and a crisp touch of Belgian yeast esters.
M: Big and rounded on the palate. Doesn't leave the mouth too fatigued.
O: Awesome beer. Will definitely drink again.
