3.95/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Caged and corked bottle, served in a Duvel tulip

A - pours a copper-red, a bit of sediment, good amount of off white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing

S - good amount of belgian yeast, sour cherry notes, at the end some alcohol on the nose

T - up front the sour cherries and yeast, followed by caramel and raisins

M - Not too thick, good amont of carbonation, but a bit heavy on the booze

O - I don't drink too many Quads, but this was pretty good. Maybe a bit hot with the alcohol, but other than that, I enjoyed the complexities of this beer.

4/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle into some Lost Abbey stemware.

Rust-colored and hazy. One finger of gloppy, off-white froth. Very sticky and retentive.

In the nose: Caramelized figs, maple syrup. Brandy, brown sugar. Nice and sweet. Rich.

Booze affects the flavor a little more than the nose. Fermented dates and figs, a little maple, brown sugar, a finish of toasted bread. Touch of tangy fig in the front. Alcohol fumes float through the nose.

Gentle nudges of carbonation in a viscous medium body. Nice and syrupy. Silky carbonation gives it a feeling like whipped cream.

Very nice. A touch too much booze, but great flavor. Nice and sugary, true to style.

Bought in Ohio, caged and corked.

Poured into a Snifter glass, pours a purple color which I've never seen before.

S: Oh man is this one sweet. Dark fruits dipped in sugar.

T: Again, sweet sugar bomb. Not my style. Was a total sweet tart. As it began to warm up it began to lighten up, but not enough.

M: Medium full bodied slight action. Hard to get past the sweet.

O: I had high hopes and was a total let down. I've never had a purple beer that I can recall and was just too sweet for me. Definitely something different and unlike any other Quad I've had before.

3.63/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Saint Somewhere wine-style glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a dark amber color with a 1/4 inch light tan head that bears almost no retention before fizzling away to a beyond paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and zero surface foam. Lacing is minimal and brief. From a heavier second pour there's much more head that retains longer and leaves sticky webs of lacing that stay suspended on the side of the glass.

S- Heavily astringent alcohol smell with some sweet Belgian candy sugar in the back. Wow, this is boozy.

T- The flavor is much more calm and not as hot as the aroma would lead you to expect. The Belgian yeast and sweetness are on hand lending a complexity to the flavor that goes beyond the blatantly high amount of alcohol. Notes of brandy, raisin and a little bit of oak.

M- Semi-syrupy with a bright alcohol sting. Low carbonation and a medium-heavy body.

O- I held on to this for a few months but it's still pretty hot and messy. I would say that I should have let it go even longer, but then the carbonation would have faded even more when it's already lacking in that area. I think I just prefer the Quad (which is the base beer of this aged offering) in its original form.

Poured from a 750 ml cork n cage bottle into a 8 oz bottle.

A- pours a dark, burnt orange with a 1 finger off-white head. Small blotches of lacing remain on the glass.

S- caramel, some light bourbon and vanilla and fruit notes.

T- sweet toffee, tobacco, bourbon, fruit esters, and some biscuit

M- medium body and carbonation. Dry feel and light but drinkable for the abv.

O- ok BA quad. A little thin and dry, with less sweetness and barrel character than I would like.

3.88/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Maybe half a finger of head atop a deep ruby body rife with partially camouflaged carbonation and sediment. Head dissipates almost instantly. Lace retention looks decent.

S: Fairly complex. I wish it had some more barrel to it, but just because I’m a sucker for barrel-aged quads. Lots of fruity esters, candied sugar, bready malt and citrus. It's almost like a green apple Jolly Rancher. Vanilla notes are pretty big too. Some indication of the 11.8% ABV, but not nearly as much as I expected.

T: Less complexity than the nose, and more vanilla and heat. Really a pretty sweet beer. Big fruit and vanilla at the tip of the tongue, some of that “rum soaked raisin” flavor midsip, and a good amount of heat and sticky sugariness in the finish.

M: On the heavier end of medium-bodied, fairly creamy, without much carbonation

O: I wanted to be blown away by this beer. I was not. It's still a solid, tasty brew, but nothing mindblowing.

4/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 750ml corked and caged bottle into Globe glass.

A. Pours 2 finger head. Decent retention. Moderate amount of lacing. Color is a dark amber brown.

S. Yeast, caramel malt, earthiness, oak, brown sugar, dark fruit, raisins. Pretty dominant yeast character when you first smell. Quite a bit of the bourbon aroma comes out as it warms up.

T. Interesting. A plethora of flavors, actually kind of hard to distinguish them all. Overall pretty sweet, but lets see if we can pin all this down. Dark fruit, oak, raisins, brown sugar. A fruity flavor that I can't describe. A really woody vanilla flavor. Taste profile changes pretty dramatic as it warms up. Might have to retry this very close to room temperature. As it warms you get quite a bit more of the bourbon barrel characteristics. Get a lot of oaky vanilla brown sugar goodness.

M. Medium/full bodied. Medium carbonation. Lingering sweetness.

O. Has this strange flavor quality that I have found in other Weyerbacher beers that I can't really describe very well. Comes together a little better as it warms up. Not the most amazing quad, and definitely not the best bourbon barrel aged quad. Yet it is worth another look at again in the futre. I will definitely start the bottle quite a bit warmer than I did this one.

3.73/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle, 2012 batch. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours clear copper (hazy 2nd half) with a one finger beige head that leaves some spots of lacing and recedes to a wispy cap and ring.

Aroma starts like a typical Quad with fruity esters of banana, cherries, raisins, overripe dark fruits, bread, yeast, some toffee and some mild notes of the barrel aging with a bit of bourbon, vanilla and oak. Very good strength.

Flavor is toffee, fruity, cherries, banana, dark fruits, some caramel, brown sugar, the bourbon, oak and vanilla come through more here than on the nose, pretty darned sweet, some alcohol on the finish but not bad for a nearly 12% brew.

Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied, sticky, creamy, the carbonation is low overall but what is there is fairly prickly.

Good stuff. I never got a chance to try their QUAD, so I can’t compare as far as the differences the barrel aging brings, but a very nice and unique Quad in its own right. Pretty sweet, even for this style and may be a little tough to make it through the 750ml on my own. Monstrous beer, too. Every bit of the 11.8% ABV...this sucker will give you the hiccups and put you to sleep...

750ml. Rusty orange pour, pretty clear. A layer of fine off white bubbles.

Aroma, grape, some red fruit, caramel. Maybe a little yeast.

Taste, a good dose of malt, caramel and some brown sugar, light molasses. Vanilla, almost like there was some oak aging. Finish is kind of a sweet tea.

Medium bodied, the fine carbonation makes it feel almost creamy. There is a good dose of the abv. Probably best shared.

This was a little better than what I was expecting from the reviews. It is big and warm, but the flavors are very good. Goes to show you need to make up your own mind.

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

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains dark fruit, brown sugar, Belgian yeast, caramelized malts, some spice and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of brown sugar, caramel and dark fruit. Then a strong alcohol sting comes in along with breadiness from Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, very strong kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent sipper but can be a bit over-powering and there are better choices within in the style.

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

Looking at it, and getting a whiff of it, though, it's clear that it's a barley-wine, barrel-aged. Fiercely carbonated, rich plummy crimson coloring, small, but lasting off-white head.

Aroma: Deep and vinous. Myriad wine-like flavors play out, intense berries, grapes etc. like a port or a wine, mixed with brandy or cognac.

Taste: Even more intense, and deep, and rich. Now I'm getting it…bourbon-barrel barley-wine. Blithering Idiot mixed with whiskey barrels. The fierceness is now mellowing, it's getting rather cool on the tongue, but the alcohol is taking it's place and rising up, ringing in the brain, quietly now, but getting louder. Rich, complex fruitiness melds with the brash bourbon qualities, making a grand, majestic mix.

This may be more than I can take in one session, but I'm strapped in for the long haul. Or am I? Let's see, and find out how sober I am in the other end.

Flavor continues strong, but doesn't completely overwhelm. It's rich, and complex, and very manageable. The only burden is the ever-increasing alcohol presence.

But, beyond that, this blasphemer is damnably delicious. I'd be best off with a smaller sample maybe, or share with friends, but I had to take this one down by myself. I've got probably eight ounces to go, and it's getting louder in here, boom-boompbbom-boom.

3.55/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - pours an almost-burgundy color into the glass. One inch of tan head that quickly dissipates into nothing.

S - Fruity esters, Belgian yeast, bready malt, a hint of clove, and alcohol.

T - Follows the nose. Decently balanced but there is definitely an alcohol presence. Doesn't have a lasting quality except for reminding you of the high abv.

M - Honestly it could use more carbonation and a bigger body. I like thick and robust beers.

O - Not too impressed but I am not a quad expert to begin with. Barrel aging helped calm things down a bit, but I would recommend the cellar treatment for a year or 2.

4.13/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from 750 ml bottle into snifter glass

Appearance – Pours a lightly hazed ruby-brown color. The off-white head upon pouring has only a light retention. The fast fading head, when gone, leaves a persistent foam film on the surface of the brew.

Smell – The smell is heavy of dark fruits of cherry and prune. Other sweet aromas of a caramel nature mare also mixed within. A bourbon-boozy smell with accents of vanilla and oak are there as well and when mixed with the sweeter smells create a warming sweet smell.

Taste – A sweet caramel taste is big up front, but soon melds with a good dose of dark fruits. The cherry and plum flavors soon begin overwhelming the caramel. Around the same time a yeasty spice and boozy taste starts to enter the tongue. The yeast spice flavor remains relatively light through the rest of the taste but the alcohol gets stronger. A bourbon and almost rum like flavor get big, where some lighter notes of vanilla and a oak come to the tongue as well. In the end a warming rum and bourbon soaked dark fruit flavor are left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thick and creamy. It is very smooth feeling on the tongue, allowing the flavors of a sweet and boozy nature to soak in; taking these tastes to their maximum. The lighter carbonation level only accentuates the smooth body helping to create this creamy thick brew.

Overall –A wonderful sipper with some big flavor. Sit, sip, chat with a good pal, and enjoy. It’s delicious.

I poured from a bomber(2012) into a snifter. The pour is murky, decent head, nice lacing. The aroma is boozy, fruity, bourbon. The taste is boozey, lots of dark fruit, hints of bourbon, the finish is boozey. The body is full, alcohol is very noticeable, good carbonation. A good quad, bourbon barrel should have added more. Perhaps some more time in the bottle would add more.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a slightly hazy ruby/brown color. One inch white head settles into a thin slip. Not surprising, given the strength of the beer and the fact that it's barrel aged. Lacing forms delicate rings on the glass.

S: Scents of bourbon, vanilla, and oak are cut by fruity and spicy Belgian yeast. Figs, apples and cinnamon. A touch peppery too. Malt aromas of bread and cake. Not a very complex nose, especially given the style, but it isn't bad.

T: Fruity at the outset, with tastes of tart cherry, raspberry, dates, and figs. Spicy flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, and pepper next. Spike of spicy alcohol (separate from the barrel's bourbon contribution). Malt tastes of brown bread, crust, and cake. The barrel kicks in mid palate with a drying toasted oak presence, vanilla, and warming bourbon. Slight hints of cocoa and smoke. Dry finish of toasted oak and crusty bread.

M: Moderately thick in body with a slightly viscous and chewy texture. Moderate carbonation helps to lift it and make it just a bit more well-rounded in the mouth. Alcohol is very warming. Not a bad mouthfeel, but it feels as though it needs just a bit more dimension.

O: It probably won't win any awards. It won't generate hype or have beer geeks sweeping it off the shelves. In fact, at the end of the day, it's a pretty average bourbon barrel aged quad. Not very complex, and a little rough around the edges. A touch hot, but not quite enough to be offensive. But at $8 for a 750ml bottle, I feel as though I got my money's worth. Maybe I'm just in a 'glass half full' kind of mood today.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A. Putrid in appearance, more of that light and supremely cloudy dirty toilet water appearance. Yikes. No head to speak of until I reach the bottom of the bottle and the sediment spikes it up. Minimal lacing.

S. Cherry, dark fruit, plum, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, and bourbon. Lovely bouquet.

T. Chocolate, char, oak, bourbon, dark fruit, and vanilla. This is still quite hot considering the year of age it has. Delicious flavors though. Drink it warm.

M. Slightly undercarbed and a little watery. Flavors, though, are nicely balanced.

O. This is a hard style, but I think Weyerbacher is near the top here. This is a little astringent and dry due to the boozy finish. The nose, though, is excellent and the flavors are well rounded. Very good example of a BA quad here.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a snifter. Big thanks to SteveFinny for this. The bottle has 040811 printed on it, so I assume this is an '11 vintage.

3.0 A: Well hazed orange amber color. One and a half fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is poor and no lacing is left.

3.5 S: Tons of plum with almost as much cherry. Figs and red grapes underneath that. Bourbon isn't too aggressive, which is a good thing. It adds a melon and earthiness foremost. The barrel is probably a bigger influence with a good bit of oak and a lesser amount of vanilla. Generic spiciness from the yeast. Smells good, but I think I prefer my quads unadultered with barrels.

3.5 T: Tastes like the nose, but the base beer comes off more genuine than in the nose. By this I mean more old school Belgian quad. Ironically, the bourbon has a greater influence in the taste. Plum, cherry, prune, grape, date, and fig fruitiness. It's still missing a direction in the yeasty spiciness department. It's there, but it's a generic, innocuous spiciness. Bourbon gives off melon and apple fruitiness and earthiness. Moderately boozy. Plenty of vanilla and oak.

3.5 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Good moderate carbonation. It's lightly spritzy, but could be more so. Still, not bad here.

3.5 D: This is a tasty beer, but it can't compare to the subtlety driven quads out of Belgium. While the bourbon makes this a fun change from the usual, it's not something I'd come back to again and again.

750 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. 2011 vintage. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep burnt orange. Not much head and no retention. Light in color for the style.

Smell - Bourbon, cherries, and booze. Caramel malts and Belgian candi sugar. Maybe some yeastiness.

Taste - More quad on the taste than the smell. The bourbon is less intense. Cherry and dark fruits. Sweet caramel malts. I'm such a sucker for this sort of beer.

Mouthfeel - Thick for a quad. Syrupy, but nice. Boozy and low carbonation.

Overall - These are my guilty pleasure. Giant, boozy, sugar bomb quads. I know it's not what a great quad should taste like (I love those, too), but it's still like drinking candy.

750 mL corked and caged bottle, bottled 051712, best by 051717

A: Pours a light mahogany color with a fingers worth of head that is gone within minutes

S: Pungent cherries and other dark fruits along with candied sugar, slight oak, alcohol, and malts

T: Follows the nose, with the dark fruits and malts taking full charge. Oak and vanilla take a back seat, but make themselves known along with the alcohol, which is surprisingly subdued for nearly 12%. Sweet, but not overly so. Impressive

M: Moderate-full bodied with light-moderate carbonation

O: A solid example of an American-brewed barrel-aged quad. The barrel merely compliments the solid base beer. A nice sipper, and one that should age very nicely

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle into a goblet glass

Served at cellar temperature and no date on bottle

A- Pours a really nice copper orange brown with 2 fingers of white head that don't stick around leaving a really tight bubbled rim around the edges of the glass. Nice lacing and legs for days.

S- First thing that hits me is the spiciness from the belgian yeast that gives off beautiful clove and mild banana notes but is quickly taken over by the barrel character in a good way. Tons of bourbon and vanilla with a slight boozy alcohol note that is very well rounded and blends in with the overall aroma and creates a spiciness to it. This beer has a lot of subtle notes to it as well like dark fruits, dark candy sugars, and maybe some molasses.

T- Man I love this beer. It's so well balanced in the super complex array of flavors it has. To start off the base beer comes through once again right away with that classic american belgian quad taste that I love. Tons of dark fruits and belgian candy sugars followed by a bunch of strong belgian yeast esters like banana and clove. After it goes farther down the throat the after taste brings out a strong punch of delicious bourbon with hints of oak, vanilla, spice, and a almost char like finish which can also come from possible roasted grains in this beer. With so many flavors coming through you would think this beer would be a mess or the bourbon would take over but it's so well done and aged perfectly creating a great easy drinking Quad. The alcohol is barely noticeable and definitely sneaks up on you. A genuine sipper

M- Full bodied with moderate carbonation and a really nice smooth finish that's leaves you wanting more.

Overall if you get a chance I say grab this beer. If you were to ask me I would rank this up there with Firestone Walker and their big barrel aged beer like Parabola and Abacus. It's that good! The only mark I give against it is the color, I feel being a Quad it should be a little darker especially when comparing it to the real Belgian ones.

Skål!

M- Rich, full bodied, good carbonation.

T- Matches the nose, booze is very strong, even stronger with the bourbon. As it warms up the rest of the malt notes come through. Notes of cherry and malt cut through the bourbon.

Overall- One of my favorite bourbon barrel aged beers. Putting a few away for aging. Should get better with time, another great beer for wheyerbacher.

Poured into a tulip glass. Solid copper color with a decent two finger head. Fusel alcohols and belgian sugar in the nose. The favor is too sweet; there are a bunch of unfemented sugars in there. A sipper to say the least. Big malt body and little to no hop pressence. carbonation is fine for the style, but I would compare it to an old ale or old stock ale more than a quad.

Smell: not a lot of depth but very nice bready, fruity, sweetness.
Taste: Wow, that's nice and from the reviews, quite surprising. Gotta wonder if I'm drinking the same beer. This is a work of art. Smooth (for an 11+% ), mellow even. All the notes from the nose within being overly sweet.
Overall: a big pleasant surprise. I expected a passable quad. Very nice.

Serving type: bottle
