Glass: East End Tulip

Pours a light brown mahogany in color w/ a skim coat white bubbly head that left nice lacing. Aromas of plums, pear, raisin, fig, and light red wine. The flavor was of pear and plum up front, leading into red wine and tart acidity, and finished w/ mile hop bite. Medium bodied w/ medium amounts of carbonation and finished dry. Pretty drinkable stuff.

Overall, very unique quad that I am glad to have tried. I almost traded this one away and now I am glad I didn't. It's nice to see Stoudt's messing with the barrel aging a bit. The only knock I had on this brew was the lower levels of carbonation that is most likely a result of the barrel aging.

Thanks to yourefragile. Amber color. Light wine in the nose; more in the flavor. Touch of fruit and light alcohol. Some fruit.

750ml into a Cantillon tulip.

A: Pours a dark brass with a nice white head.

S: Dark, fruity malt and wet oak. Grapes, apricot, slightly lactic, plenty of deep tannins.

T: Raisins, brown bread, vinous tannins, cherry, mild yet pleasing fruity tartness, lactic and slightly buttery in the finish, hint of alcohol.

M: Medium-bodied with light carbonation, creamy feel.

O: I really liked this - a very nice balance between the base quad and the tartness and tannic qualities from the barrel. Also, be careful - judging from my experience this seems to be in the 11-14% ABV range...

Poured from a 750 into a HF tulip.

Poured a light copper color. Much lighter than I anticipated, being a quad.

Smell is really good on this. It's got a malty, leathery smell...but then also has a bit of a tannic funk? I'm not sure if I'm describing that correctly, but thats what I got.

Taste is like a 'lite' quad, as if BMC made a low calorie quad. That sounds kinda bad, but it isn't meant that way. It's just lighter than I'm used to for the style. It's malty, hint of dark fruit and tobacco. Then on the end is the wine notes...this is what makes this ber shine for me. I love the combination of the styles/flavors.

Feels substantial in the mouth. It's got a medium body, but the flavors make it appear (feel) heavier than it is. This isn't a style that I drink very often at all and I was a bit nervous about cracking a 750 of this, but it went down very easy and I enjoyed it. I'd strongly recommend giving this a go. It's delicious and very unique.

Thanks to ShanePB for this one.

App- When out of the bottle it pours a very murky brown, red and a little bit of a turbid gold. A solid 2 finger head with a very good amount of cling.

Smell- Its very oaky with a tannic vibe going. I would call it more red wine vs. a beer actually. A good amount of sour and dark fruit quad. Nice aromatics.

Taste- This was a pretty damn good beer. Had a ton going on in the glass. Was a quad with dark fruits and a bit of booze and then the sour kicked in and then a red wine oak vibe. A little bit unbalanced but still quite delightful.

Mouth- A bit of a lighter medium body with a medium carbonation. More of the quad an the dark fruits remains with a little bit of oak.

Drink- This was a tasty beer for sure. A couple slip ups in the overall beer, but overall very good. One of the closest to wine I have ever seen or tasted.
