look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
2013 Bottle, poured into an oversized wine glass
A- pours a clear brownish-red color with a big foamy and creamy off white head that has good retention, leaving some nice lacing behind upon settling
S- lots of oaky barrel notes with some vanilla and cherry up front, barrel juice and some sweet bread malt are complimented by toffee, with a bit of tart funk on the finish
T- sweet and bready with notes of toffee and caramel, toasted bread, sweet-yet-tart cherry juice, nutty oak flavor on the finish with lingers of vanilla and tart cherry, BIG alcohol burn on the finish
M- medium body with lively carbonation leads to a big bubbly mouthfeel and a foamy finish, lots of alcohol continues to the finish
O- the barrel notes mixes nicely with the light cherry tartness, the only downside is it's really boozy when fresh. I usually like strong tasting beers, but this seemed to detect from the malty sweetness of the base quad. A year of aging in the bottle may have made this one a true winner

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.
