Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester.
Pours a crimson brown, with a small half inch head, and not much lacing.
Smells like caramel, cherries, booze, whiskey, and Belgian yeast.
The taste is similar. There's a lot of good stuff going on here, but it's hard to drink due to how boozy this is. This seems to be a common problem with Weyerbacher BA beers. Lots of Belgian fruity yeast esters- some cherry, lots of raisins and plums, very sweet malt, and a strong lingering boozy whiskey burn. I get a little bit of vanilla and caramel, but I wish it came through stronger- as it stands, the booziness washes those flavors away.
Medium bodied, thicker than the typical Weyerbacher BA beer. A very slow sipper, due to the alcohol. Low carbonation.
Overall not bad, but needs 3+ years to calm and cool down.

750ml corked bottle purchased from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh, PA on 6/19/14. Served in tulip glass.
A - Deep red velvet, one finger head on pour sinking to thin residual head quickly. Moderate lacing.
S - Bourbon, caramel and vanilla dominate.
T - Bourbon, chocolate, and caramel up front drying out slowly. Vanilla and caramel lingers on the palate.
M - Rich and creamy but balanced with appropriate carbonation. Leaves mouth a little sticky.
O - A sipping beer for sure, Weyerbacher demonstrates its talents with maltier ales and lives up to what a Quadruple should be. Definitely not an everyday beer, heavy and rich for the holidays.
