330ml bottles. 2008 and 2009 vintages poured side by side.

A: Both vintages pour a murky mahogany woody brown. 08 definitely has less carbonation, but a thin dark tan collar briefly stuck around. The 09 has a nice dense finger of foam that slowly faded into a fuzzy film and collar.
S: The 09 is definitely a bit brighter and sweeter smelling, and the 08 has a few hints of musty damp oxidation, but other than that the noses are pretty similar with scents of dark fruits, raisins, leather, pipe tobacco and mild spice.
T: Both are actually fairly similar but the 09 flavors are a bit brighter. Powdery chocolate and dark fruits dominate, especially candied dates, raisins, and figs. Vanilla, oak, spice, nutmeg, and slight caramel, come through as well with a surprisingly earthy hoppy finish, slight sticky booziness, and slight bitterness.
M: Fairly similar as expected on both vintages. Maybe a bit more carbonation on the 09. Thick body, chewy mouthfeel, heavy and smooth, very soft carb, mellow, well-aged, and integrated.
O: Age has done wonders. 08 is amazing but I like the brighter (yet still very mellow) flavors of the 09 better. Both are some of the best quads in the world.
