Sampling cellar temp bottle in a snifter, part of my winnings from last season EPL champion. The beer pours a clear mahogany with frothy eggshell white head of 2 cm fading to an edge layer.
Aroma is heavy with bourbon, and vanilla, a bit of brown sugar and lots of dark fruit, plums and red grapes. A little bit of booze sneaks in on some whiffs. Very complex and enticing nose.
First sip reveals an average body with smooth silky texture that does leave a little stickyness on my lips after each sip. Carbonation is medium and rolling.
Flavor is malty and robust, hits of bourbon start me off and sweet brown sugar mixes. Some candied sugar quad notes roll in for the finish and there are some light hits of fruit scattered throughout. Finish does dry a little, but a sweet bourbon flavor also coats my palate.
The beer is pretty big and robust but doesnt give off a lot of heat IMO. Quite a nice mix of bourbon and quad. I wish I had another of these tasty treats floating around!

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.
