Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, green session. Aroma has toffee, bourbon and dried dark fruits. Taste is balanced. Lots of toffee, butterscotch, raisins with a light toffee sweetness. Aftertaste lingers with smooth bourbon.

On tap

Pours a deep brown, small foamy khaki head. Smells of brown bread, caramel/toffee, dark fruit, bourbon & oak. Tastes of dark brown bread, fig, raisin, fruitcake, bourbon juice, oak, caramel, toffee and earthy wood. Viscous body with moderate carbonation, thick
And creamy creamy mouthfeel and finish. Outstanding

Pour is a dark murky ugly brown with a small amount of tan head that dissipates immediately. Nose is heavy bourbon and some charred wood with faint notes of sweet candied sugar. Flavor is also heavy on the bourbon and wood, actually in a nice way. The quad doesn't make a ton of appearance, malts are actually fairly rich, a hint of malty sweetness in back. Fuller body, fairly dry, a touch chalky in the feel.

Bottle #136 out of 325, 2014 batch.

Vanilla earthiness, caramel and oak in the smell. Lots of vanilla, toffee, caramel, and earthy rich sweetness. Some dark fruits. Nicely balanced between barrel and quad flavors.

Appearance - The beer was a murky brown color with some bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass.

Smell - The beer had a nice bourbon nose with malty in the background.

Taste - The bourbon makes the initial impression. Chocolate, caramel, tobacco, and make big impression with a slight nuttiness that is masked by the other action. The aftertaste is warming with the bourbon and chocolate staying strong.

Mouthfeel - For a quad, I would have expected a little more thickness. That said, the beer meanders across the tongue.

Overall - This is an elite bourbon barrel quad.
