This was a gift from J&L. Pours a muddy looking reddish brown with a small tan head that's quickly fades and no lacing. Vanilla, booze and some citrus aroma, tangerine maybe? Flavors are similar, a little ash and toffee as it warmed. Medium bodied, little carbonation and just a bit of "burn". Nice beer!

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is hazy red in color. It poured with a thin collar of off white bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of vanilla from the bourbon barrel aging are present in the nose. As the beer warms up, the tangerine also becomes noticeable in the smell.
T: The taste has flavors of tangerines and bourbon (and associated oaky vanilla) with underlying hints of caramel malts.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation and is a little sticky.
O: This beer has an interesting taste as you can get both the tangerines and bourbon. It's an unusual combination but isn't as crazy as you might expect it to be.

Serving type: on-tap

Chestnut brown body,not much of a head, not very long lasting. Aromas of toffee, vanilla, bourbon & oak. Taste is sweet, caramel & dark fruit & bourbon & barrel flavors. Vanilla is the dominant note with a tangerine finish. There’s enough carbonation & alcohol tingle to occupy the tongue but a but thin. Someone mentioned creamsicle & that pretty much nails it, a creamsicle quad. Overall, slightly less than I expected but still excellent.

22 ounce bottle into a chalice. Had 3/30/17.

Pours an amber/orange, fairly clear, with a half inch head and some soapy lacing. Aromas of malt, yeast, plums, dates, banana (?), grapes, some oak, light vanilla. The taste is malt forward, grapes, plums, dates, orange peel, raisins, light bourbon, some oak and spices, a little yeast, bitter on finish. Smooth, a good body but a lighter/thinner feel for the style, well carbonated.

Good flavor and aroma overall, but didn’t feel the barrels or orange peel added much. Thinner feel detracted a bit. Decent price point, worth a try.

-red-amber tap pour with a thin foam ring. The aroma is strongly bourbon-influenced. The flavors include prominent cherry and orange with a caramel sweetness. -this is like almost nothing else I have ever had, a Belgian mixed drink, in oak, from Colorado? -special!

A: This poured an opaque dark copper with quickly dissipating light tan head.
S: It smelled like earthy toffee and plumb, with some milk chocolate and nougat and oak.
T: It tasted like sweet vanilla and tangerine, almost like a cream sickle, with some earthy toffee and prune and oak. It had a clean and sweet aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Light body.
D: This was a delicious and unique brew that had a nice blend of flavors that worked really well together. The body was a little weak, but the finish was very smooth with well hidden alcohol, so it was really easy to drink. No reason to age. Fresh is great. Recommended.

22oz bottle into a tulip. bottled 11/26/16, so over a year old.

dark amber body, clear when held up to the light. average carbonation up the side of the tulip. small but persistent dingy off white head.

aroma of boiled sweets, molasses, dark fruit. faintly of bourbon.

sweet tasting, a faint hint of the base quad. some oakiness. The bourbon is not so much a taste as a slow burn in the back of the throat. missing in action ae the tangerines. not even a hint of them.

mouth is surprisingly well below medium. finish is sweet with the slow burn.

overall, while not unpleasant, this was a bit of a disappointment. no tangerines at all. I took a long shot and thought that the tangerine bits had settled into the gunk at the bottom of the bottle. I was wrong.

L- where is a clear rustic red with a thin, creamy comma off-White head. Good carbonation.
S- a tangerine and citrus smell. Carmel and vanilla.
T- Good carmel malt up front eith the tangerine providing a clean, crisp dryer finish. Vanilla and bourbon combine well and provide nice warm bite.

Cherry red, dense but transparent with a creamy head. Smells a little fruity. Taste is a little fruity with a little vanilla bourbon. Mouthfeel is much less dense than a typical quad. ABV not that noticeable in the mouth. Pretty different in many ways from a typical belgian-style quad.
