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.

Cork and caged bottle picked up in 2012. Poured into a Boulevard Brewing tulip.

Pours a reddish brown with a white sand head. Left a little cap and ring. Pretty good for a barleywine. On the nose vanilla, butterscotch, prunes, brown sugar and caramel. Smooth oak, vanilla, brown sugar and candi sugar. While there is plenty of spicy, bourbon bite it's quite mellow. Mouthfeel is very warming with low carbonation. Body is just a bit thinner than expected. Overall, solid bourbon barrel quad. A good deal for the price.

bottled 05.06.13. poured into tulip.

A: a very cloudy pour. a bit too cloudy considering the upright condition this bottle was held in. caramel hued. head is slightly off-white. good retention. limited lacing.

S: great bourbon character right off the bat. oak, vanilla, heat. a lot of those characteristics with a rich caramel malt backbone highlights the nose.

T: definitely get a lot booze. a lot of caramel too. really rich but not sticky. really present vanilla bean flavor. soft and smooth. finish is filled with sweet unfermentables and more booze. wish I got a bit more Belgian quad flavors out of this. that or fermentation flavors. I suppose the majority was overtaken by the bourbon barrels. not the worst thing to overtake a flavor...

M: a really gentle fizz. subtle bottle conditioning. I think it works well. huge body.

D: really impressed with this brew from weyerbacher. this and their Insanity are two top notch bourbon barrel aged brews imo. got another one in the cellar, should be really good in about a year after some of the heat has perhaps dissipated. ill report back.
