Comes out not looking like expected. Looks like the cherry adds to the color a bit. It's a hazy brownish red. The head lasts forever and coats the glass.
A little of the bourbon, wood, and vanilla from the barrels comes out. The added cherries make their presence known which is good since this bottle is a few months down the road from bottling. Big sweet malty qualities of caramel, toffee, and dark fruit come out. The beer oozes sweetness and alcohol.
Alcohol is present but not detracting which I find it to be in some beers. Drinking this by yourself you will feel it. Big warming sensation. Cherry, dark fruits, toffee, caramel, vanilla, and wood.
The carbonation is fine and smooth and creamy just creating a luxurious experience expounded upon by the great flavors in this beer. Ends dry.
This beer is big and bold and the perfect American quad for me.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into an oversized wine glass. Head starts out as fizzy on the initial pour, but quickly settles into a large fluffy tan head. Deep amber-brown body.
Some cherry and a lot of bourbon in the nose, with typical quad notes lurking in the background. Definitely some alcohol present in the nose as well.
Tastes wonderful and exactly how you would expect. Definitely a quad backbone with bourbon and cherry vanilla floating on top. Some pepperiness, probably from the higher ABV.
Mouth seems a pinch thin, but swirling in the glass helps.
A really great beer, enjoying the last night in our current house. Lots of memories here, and this beer will be one of them.
