I had this on-tap at the anniversary party. Served in a tasting glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a mahogany color with some red at the edge when the light comes through. There is almost no head.

Smell: Quite sweet with some raisins and caramel. There is also some heat from the bourbon that hits the nose.

Taste: Super sweet with lots of dark fruit and some cherries. I'm getting caramel along with the bourbon. The finish is also quite sweet.

Mouthfeel: The body is a bit on the syrupy side with foamy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a very sweet beer, but I enjoyed it. Fairly smooth. A nice beer to have for dessert. I'd have more.

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.

Deep mahogany pour with a small color of bubbles for a head. Aroma of dark fruits and bready yeast, boozy heat right from the get-go. Taste of caramel malts and dark fruits, grain alcohol, pumpernickel, and a pretty big oak quality. Not as smooth as I like my BB beers to be, but this is a style I don't often have in a barrel-aged form. Body was medium, smooth, hot, but not too hot, appropriate carbonation. Pretty good overall.

Thanks to oline73 for gifting me this bottle. Very gracious. Shared with Thorpe and Humbard.

The beer is dark brown with a thin, wispy head that fades rapidly, leaving little lace. The aroma offers brown bread, Belgian yeast, oak, bourbon. Nice flavor. Well balanced. A bit of heat in the finish. Lingering caramel malt and brown bread with bourbon barrel character. Tasty beer.

This was poured into a chalice.
The appearance was a nice dark brown color with some lighter brown hues closer to the top sitting just under a quickly dissipating finger's worth of white foamy head. Barely any lace.
The aroma presented a wonderful blend of sweet bourbon woodiness over some caramel malts, Belgian sugars, some allspice and clove, Belgian chocolate, dark chocolate, some dark fruits (plums more so), and ended with a little bit of clean earthiness.
The flavor was a fantastic blend of spices to sweetness running through all of the prior mentioned aromas and then all coming together enthusiastically in the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fine sipping quality about it. Nice enough grip from the spices along my tongue but not so much distracting, just noticeable enough to prevent any stickiness, slow mobility I like to say. Carbonation felt right on par. ABV felt appropriate. Finish was somewhat sticky, but nice enough sweetness from the Belgian sugars and chocolates.
Overall, very nice bourbon barrel-ed quad - fantastic in it's entirety and would make an absolutely wonderful sipper for Winter.

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.
