Poured from a cork and cage bomber. Appearance is dark toffee brown with a thin, quick-receding head. Little to no lace.

Smells like sweet, sweet dark fruit, toffee, raisins and intense red wine. A hint of banana and Belgian spices. There's not really any whiskey on the nose, just a slight whiff of booze that is more reminiscent of strong red wine.

Taste is rich and sweet, and includes vanilla, caramel, fig, prunes, brown sugar, green raisins, apple. There's not much whiskey here either, but there is definitely some nice oak character. There is also nice Belgian yeast character with only the slightest tinge of banana flavor. The yeast is smoothed out by tons of sweet malts, giving it a velvety profile.

Overall this is a very nice beer that's definitely on the sweet side (a lot of quads are too sweet for my taste -- this one is borderline). It could use a stronger whiskey and/or hop presence, but it's still a complex, enjoyable beer.

A-a hazy ruby amber with a thin layer of light tan head

S-rum soaked dark fruits, backbone of malts, subtle chocolate, and a nice bourbon booziness

T-similar to the smell with lots of boozey dark fruits, vanilla, lots of bourbon

M-medium body, light to medium carbonation, lot of alcohol warming

Overall this is a really big Quad, really boozey. I'd be curious what a little time could do to it.

First thing that comes to mind is WOW!
This is great it's kind of like a low abv bourbon boilermaker. The bourbon flavors and aromas are extremely prevalent. They mingle well with the Belgian yeasty flavors ones would expect from a quadruple. This is perfect harmony, the hops keep the sweet bourbon flavors in check while the malt is all smooth and graceful. Alcohol is a little strong on the nose but it's well hidden on the tongue. This was only 9$! For a something that is aged 2 years they could easily charge more but they don't! You have to try this if you like beer and you like bourbon.

750ml with the new labeling into a tulip.

A: Pours a murky prunish brown with a small beige head. Not a pretty beer by any means.

S: Nose brings sharp raisiny sweetness, buttery whiskey, brown bread, some notes of yeasty clove and nutmeg, a bit of oak.

T: Spike of booze, sherry, fig, moderate tannic whiskey, slight banana, grapes. Some vanilla and cooked sugar notes come out as it warms.

M: Thick-bodied with the appropriate coarse carbonation. Dry tannic feel on the tongue.

O: This beer is boozy as all hell, predictably. Not bad though. Let it warm up.

75 cl

Pours a hazy apple brown, yellowish head is coarse and dissipates surprisingly quickly to a bit of lacing.

Smells of apples, coriander, citrus, caramel, cloves, and bready malts like pie crust.

Flavor is of rich whiskey and apple with some spice notes and some darker fruit sweetness in the range of figs. Additionally, there is some citrus tartness and a mild floral hop bitterness.

Fuller body with sharp tingles of carbonation on the roof of the mouth and a slight booze numbness followed by a bit of warmth going down.

A real powerhouse quad, pretty good but not fantastic. Definitely worth trying and Weyerbacher rarely disappoints, but there are some other Quads I'd take before this and definitely other offerings from Weyerbacher I'd go for. But I will enjoy finish this one.
