This was the 2014 version.

Look: It pours dark brown in color with ruby highlights. It has a light brown head.

Smell: It has aromas of molasses, plums, raisins, cherry, bread, and alcohol.

Taste: It has flavors of plums, raisins, bread, cherries on the sour side, some molasses and alcohol. There are also oak overtones.

Feel: The finish is bitter and sour with alcohol warming.

Overall: The is a complex, flavorful quad with lots of aroma and good balance.

Very smooth, with different and varying tones in it! Taste evolves during the tasting off the bottle. This is à must try once in à life time beer!

Infected, such a shame. Tasted like a Brett infection and didn't take over too much, which made the beer even more disappointing. Could still taste some of the quad and barrel, and I could tell this one would've been something special, hence the high rating for something infected. Sigh

2013 bottle # 40052 poured to tulip

Pours opaque dark brown. One finger or creamy mocha color head stays on for the long haul

Aroma is hot boozey raisen with oak lurking

Booze, oak and raisen also strike in the flavor, backed with subtle notes of chocolate, plum and vanilla. Not overly sweet nor malty... rare in a quad.

Mouthfeel is lush but not syrupy, CO2 hanging around to liven it up to the bottom of the glass

Overall, I'm not sure I've had a better quad... excellent now, and with this profile it could easily age longer. If I see any more bottles of this, I might buy 'em all.

From cervezasespeciales. Watching The Hunger Games 3 and Playing Unepic. In Teku glass. 2013 edition. Smooth. The barrel taste isnt too overwhelming. Can be drinked with ease.

A rare opportunity to have on tap. This is the '13. I really appreciated the thick mocha head that could be exacerbated at any whim. My initial aroma was a delicious sourness and sweetened dried fruit. As it warmed it then morphed into light roast coffee. Taste was immediate raw vanilla bean, sweet spice oak and coffee. As this warmed I no longer got coffe but rather raisins and prunes in good fashion. A very complex craft that is quite a conversational centerpiece. Since I sat without nerdy note taking I'm probably missing some true to form components. Wow-just wow!
