Last beer from a trade with sry23. Scott will hook you up. Bottle 4423 of batch 2. Paired this with a nice ribeye steak. I was worried a bit about the pairing, as I didn't want the steak to overpower the beer, but they went amazingly well together. Split the bottle with a friend who was in full agreement on the pairing and the beer itself.
Wow! This is great stuff.
A nice amber color with the typical Boulevard head.
Smell is nice if not overly complex. Smell of cherries really jumps out at me. Wasn't expecting that at all. Some notes of vanilla, bourbon and wood.
Taste is fantastic. As in the smell, cherry and vanilla. The bourbon comes through, but is so well done. Subtle and not at all boozy and overpowering like so many other beers from liquor aged barrels. Drinking this, you would have no idea that the beer is 12%, the alcohol is so well masked.
An extraordinary beer. Just awesome.

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.
