Nice deep garnet brew, bordering on brown, with a reasonable (for the style) cream-colored head. Brew is nearly transparent, although dark.

On the nose, it's a big Belgian quad with cherries - there's no hint of barrels. Syrup and honey, cherries, dates, prunes, dark bread. Very nice aroma.

Surprisingly lighter than a traditional quad on the palate, with more vinous and tart notes from the cherries and wine barrel. I wouldn't quite call it sour, but it's definitely a touch tart, and the barrel comes through with remarkable strength: oak, must, and dirt. There's a ton going on in this brew, and while it's not a perfectly even blend, everything does come together for an overall wonderful taste.

Smooth and easy on the palate; incredibly easy drinking, feeling closer to 8 or 9% ABV than 11%. This honestly feels less potent than many tripels in the 9-10% range.

This is a unique and worthy brew!

Look - hazy mahogany with an off-white head that dissipates quickly but has some pretty, but spotty, lacing.
Smell - cherries and other dark fruit, brown sugar, bready malts, spicy yeast, and warm alcohol - very aromatic.
Taste - cherries hit first, yeast, cloves, and a strong foundation of barrel notes and wine.
Feel - medium carbonation, slightly viscous body due to the high ABV and barrel aging, but smooth finish.
Overall, it's a nice example of a big barrel-aged beer, but it lacks the depth and complexity of a quad. The nose hits the mark, but the flavor profile is dominated by barrel notes.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled November 10th 2016.

Deep garnet and slightly brown with a good dark plum and date color. Fleeting creamy khaki head, settled to a simple collar and always re-poplulated. Not much noticeable carbonation, but some slightly transparent ones along the sides.

Aroma hits real nicely. Deep sensing cherries and pitted dark fruits. Slightly fig and raisin but with a brighter quality. Hits with some sharp clove flavors as well, a bit of fruitcake like bread tones as well. Mild oak sensations ride out as well.

Palate is quite big and large. Sharp hits of cherry juice and liquid raisin on first sip. A bit of hot booze quite a bit on the aftertaste, which sort of takes away from the bready qualities. Solid rounded mouthfeel, but not much barrel character coming through in flavors.

Comes off a bit large for it's own good, and crushing the little nuances, but still a tasty quad.
