Purchased at a store in Trenton, ME for ~10 for 750 ml. Poured into tulips and shared. Pours a clear and translucent light brown with a thin head that quickly dissipates leaving very little lace. Lots of aroma...dried fruit, brown sugar, sweet malt, molasses, currant...very nice aroma. Flavor was also good, with some caramel, whiskey, brown sugar and dried stone fruit. I don't know the age of this bottle, but I detected a little oxidation or something metallic in the taste that detracted a little. Mouth was slightly thin for such a big beer, low carbonation, smooth. Overall, a good domestic BA quad.

Poured from the large bottle into a large tulip.
Pours a ruddy reddish brown with minimal head.
Aromas are vanilla, toffee, whiskey, raisin...complex.
Taste is incredible lots of whiskey flavor and raisin, sweetness.
Mouthfeel is very nice too...enough to chew on.
I really liked this quad quite a lot. Very nice balance and big flavor!

Poured into a snifter it has a clear amber black body with a quickly dissipating 1 inch slight beige head (no lacing). Smell is of buttered toast, dried fruit, vanilla, bourbon, cherry, caramel, toffee, plum, and prune. Taste is the same with even more buttered toast, a okay amount of bourbon, vanilla, cherry, burnt sugar, caramel, and brown sugar. Full oily mouth feel and body with a good amount of alcohol bite. Really a bad quad, maybe I just picked up a bad bottle with a ton of butter but I this is totally disappointing.

Pours a very nice reddish brown with minimal head. The smell is raisiny with sugar underneath. The mouth is amazing. Tiny soft carbonation like caramel cotton candy. The taste is rich - bourbon soaked dark fruits, burnt sugars. Lots of alcohol notes and a bite at the end. A great beer to hang around with for the evening. This is one I will get any time I see it.

Enjoyed from the bottle in a snifter glass. This excellent quad pours a dark brownish mahogany with a light off white head of foam, borderline tan, that quickly dissipates leaving nothing but a very thin ring. Nose of bourbon, butterscotch, vanilla, toffee, figs, and brown sugars. Flavors explode with brown sugar and bourbon soaked fruit cake on all sides. Flavors fade to the back with brown sugars and dark fruits that mingle nicely with vanilla and figs. Slick and very low carbonation. A sipper for certain. Excellent. Another triumph from Weyerbacher.

Cheers

2011 vintage, best by 4/2016...running out of time! Cork barely fizzles out, pours a hazy garnet, instantly fading head. Smell: vanilla and booze presence upfront, beneath is overripe black plums, brown sugar, cola and buttered brown bread notes. Taste: dark brown sugar, booze soaked date bread, grapeskin, prune, cola, a little toasted graininess.
Low carb, but nails the feel...full bodied, sugary, boozy, finishing fairly dry with herbal and grapeskin notes. This was good. I've sampled this "fresh" as well and found it too hot...4 years might be the right number of years.

Poured into snifter. The color is dark brown with a reddish hue. I was somewhat surprised that there is no head or lacing. The first smell is the whiskey followed by dark fruit and malt. When sipped, the first thing that hits you is the alcohol, followed by the dark fruit - raisin or fig, and then a nice sweet vanilla or toffee at the finish. This ale has a nice mouth feel; strong carbonation and alcohol burn. It's definitely a sipper. I'm a big fan of Weyerbacher and this barrel-aged quad did not disappoint.
