Been holding this for the last year. It poured with no head at all. It is very deep red/ brown in color. There is no carbonation at all, very flat. With the sourness and the heat from the bourbon barrels it reminds me of a boozy Flemish Red. I think they tried to do too much with what could have been a great beer. A wild quad or BBA quad would have been fine, but all 3 and it takes away from the product. Nice to try but don't need another.

Review entered from notes. Draft at the old taproom into a snifter. The beer is a reddish brown in color with just a light wisp of head and a thin ring. The malty quad side of the equation provides some dark fruits - raisin, prune, apple - mingled with a sharply acidic sour side. Nice musty, funky aroma becoming more sour and vinegar on the palate. Unexpected touches of toasted coffee and cocoa here and there. The bourbon barrel presence comes through modestly. Moderate in body with a low to moderate carbonation. I enjoyed this one, but there’s lots of competing character and it’s a little brash at times.
