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.

750ml Bottle. Reviewed on 6-24-12.
Weyerbacher always does magical things when they oak age any of their brews. The only thing I see any setbacks with this brew is the appearance. This is "too clean" to be a Quad. It might be from me grading it on the first half (Since this is the 750ml Corked and Caged.) I was looking forward to an ugly brew, yet I found a clean Quad. Other than the appearance, I found this to be enjoyable.

Poured from caged cork bomber

A - Dark copper Brown, like a well aged penny Brown. Cloudy, with little to no head

S - whiskey a go go. Love it dark fruit and sweet boozy Bourbon

T - smooth vanilla and whiskey. Mild yet very satisfying. Medium mouth feel. Ni

M - smooth, rich, slightly boozy. Different from any quad I have tried, but I love it.

O - next spring, I will buy a dozen of these. Really outstanding, a great experience, highly recommended.

750ml bottled 5/6/2013. Served in a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a dark, rusty orange/brown color with almost no head to speak of save for a thin light collar. Body is nearly opaque.

Smell: Booze soaked dark fruit, bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar, red grape skins.

Taste: Big malt sweetness with flavors mirroring those in the aroma. Bourbon soaked raisin and fig, brown sugar, hint of red grape and caramel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel. Low levels of prickly carbonation. Booze is there, but masked well.

Overall: Another solid beer from Weyerbacher. Strays away from a traditional quad, but still a really good beer.
