3.53/5  rDev -10.2%

A - towards the red end of reddish brown, wells up a big brown head that fades to a thin single layer of bubbles swiftly, small amounts of both carbonation and sediment

S - a big bit of alcohol straight up front, which fades into dark fruits and grapeskins quickly, dark fruits like plums or prunes

T - sweet malts, dark fruits, and vanilla and toffee sweetness followed up with an alcohol boozy burn

M&D&O - too much burn for a high mouthfeel score, some decent fruits and sweet malts underneath the 11.8%. gets better as it warms in my glass. Though maybe I put too much age on this one, but I think its ok quality wise, a decent quad, but won't compare to the European versions of course, but apporaching benchmark for American versions.

3.56/5  rDev -9.4%

A - Limited to no head... Nothing much more that a quickly fading thin veil of rich off white lacing... All that is left is a thin to moderate collar... The color is a slightly warm caramel brown... Some suspended sediment... Mostly still with just a couple of stray sluggish carbonation bubbles...

S - The booziness is at the forefront... There is also an unexpected tannin quality... Caramel... Raisins... Assorted other dark fruits... Dark breads... Brown sugar... Decent complexity, but the booziness is a bit too heavy handed throughout...

T - The booze and more so the heat from the booze dominate the palate and distract from the rest of the flavors... Lying beneath the surface is some caramel, brown sugar, toffee, raisins, and dark fruit... Sadly, it's a bit of a muddled mess in which the heat of the bourbon barrel is somewhat unpleasant and serves as a distraction... Evens out a bit more as it warms, but still a disappointment overall...

M -Teetering between medium and full bodied... Sleek, smooth and rather robust... A bit of prickly carbonation... The heat of the booze is undeniable...

D - This one sat in the cellar for close to a year, but this one has a bit too much heat... Bourbon barrel aging can either add nuance or overpower and distract from the rest of the beer... Unfortunately it serves as a big distraction and creates a lot of unpleasant noise for an otherwise solid offering... I'll take the standard version (Weyerbacher Quad) any day of the week...
