look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a dark, clear orange with two fingers of white head that fades into a frothy ring with decent lacing.

S: Candy sugar up front with lots of caramel and vanilla. There are also some bubblegum notes before light aromas of oak and whiskey.

T: Candy sugar with sticky caramel, vanilla, oak, and whiskey. There are also flavors of bubblegum and sweet yeast before a moderately boozy finish.

M: Medium-thick body with low carbonation, this beer is sticky sweet, but avoids being watery.

O: A pretty solid beer overall, and very reasonably priced. I'd like a bit more Belgian flavor and aroma, but the whiskey rules. Still, what's there is good.

750ml bottle poured into a glass. Finally warm enough to be able to sit on my patio for this!

Appearance: caramel colored liquid with a two fingered white head on top. Vigorous bubbling action in the beer. Takes a bit of time for the head to diminish.

Smell: plums and vanilla and spices, like a normal quad, but with some bourbon notes mixed in. Happy that the bourbon doesn't overpower the base quad notes.

Taste: at first sip, it tastes like your normal quad and then... BAM. The bourbon notes come out of nowhere. This has a lot of complexity to it. Not to the level of Abt 12, mind you, but this is still pretty darn good.

Mouthfeel: pretty full bodied. Sticky. Bourbon surprisingly doesn't linger, but the sweetness does.

Overall: definitely like this. Definitely expect to be feeling this bottle later on.

750 ml bottle was poured into a goblet.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a nothing. It is a murky crimson brown color with vision of bubbles coming up through the side of the glass.

Smell: Spice, caramel, bready, apple, pear, warm booze, raisins, figs, plums, vanilla, and a little oak.

Taste: This beer blends well together. The bourbon barrel adds depth and qualities to the beer. Once you get past the spice and booze, it's all good.

Mouthfeel: Whoa!!! Warm heat, full bodied, low carbonation, tingly spice, silky smooth, and quite the sipper.

Overall: I would like to try the base beer before it is aged in bourbon barrels for a comparison. Either or and they both would be awesome.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: copper color and cloudy. Pours a thin ½” head that recedes quickly and leaves slight lacing.
Aroma: this brew is aged in bourbon barrels and the aroma makes that evident. Also pick up some fruity aroma (almost wine like), some clove, and a bit of hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and somewhat sticky, finish is dry and somewhat boozy.
Flavor: bourbon, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, raisins, and some hops.
Overall: This is an outstanding beer.
