02/04/15 Same old story thzt never gets old.

05/15/14 On tap. A fine, fine beer. Caution, as this 10% ABV bomb is deceptive. It's as slick & smooth as your grandma said it would be. I find this to be a faultless beer...unless you plan on having more than a few (2 or 3). The seduction lies in the ultra inviting balance bitter & sweet (which should be a good lesson in life). With temperance this could prove to be an ally. I, for one, have learned to live with it, gladly.

Served on tap at Waldo Pizza in Kansas City, MO. Smells of smoke, malt and alcohol. Taste lingers of oak, malt and alcohol. One of the best quads i've had. You definitely get some lingering alcohol, but its needed to balance the beer out and give it a bourbon esqe quality. Classic

Edit from a year ago, Jun 20, 2014, when I rated this a "4". The flavor profile resembles an orange-apple marmalade with peaches and honey mid-palate. Too sweet without a strong Belgian-yeast bite. A bit of a let down.

Pours a beautiful chestnut color with a lofty, tan head. It drops evenly and settles to a very thick film and leaves a sheet of lacing on the glass.
Smell is malty, rich with fruit notes (apple, white grape), some wood, and I think a hint of sherry, maybe. Good balance.
Taste is, after 15 minutes in the glass, malt, wood, light fruits, a not inconsequential hit of alcohol, bubblegum and faint hops. Really well balanced.
Warming, rich, almost smooth. Medium plus body, light effervescence. Leaves a pretty decent amount of stickiness behind on the upper palate. A great beer, I'll take another, please.
