Like like what a Quad should.
Smells like dark cherries and whiskey.
A lot of whiskey taste here. Some Quad. A bit of a medicine taste to it.
Overall, this beer is ok!!!!

Look - Typical quad look. Mixture of a brownish/copper/purple type color. Quickly dissipating head. Legs for days
Smell - Cherries, raisins, some figs and whiskey on the nose.
Taste - Starts off with those dark fruit Belgian quad notes but quickly fades. Fusel booze and whiskey barrel take control.

Overall - I love Belgian Quads but this one is too aggressive with the whiskey/booze for my liking. Insanity or SMS are much better options if you're looking for a big Weyerbacher beer.

Pours a brownish copper with practically no head. The nose is fairly mild for the style - maybe some vanilla with a touch of alcohol. The flavor profile is overwhelmingly sweet and fruity - in a way that a Quad should NOT be.

The body is very thin for the style. The lack of heft in the body also makes both the sweetness and the alcohol burn hard to take.

This offering is a bit of a hot mess and nothing close to a Quad.

750 ml bottle into a chalice.

Pours a garnet color, slightly opaque, with not much head or cling. Might have poured it too cold. Smells pretty good- malt, dates, figs, raisins, some cherry, some plum. Light bourbon and vanilla, a slight sherry aroma. Taste leads with the malt, much more bourbon than the nose, figs, cherries, vanilla, dates, raisins, some oak, a little anise when warm. Really smooth, lighter body for the style, but still full bodied, appropriate level of carbonation.

Great flavor, well blended, the right amount of the barrel. Have only had a few beers from these guys, but they've all been above average. This one is well worth a purchase.

Thanks to @Ozzylizard for this PA gem. I received this in a glorious box of beer greatness in the NBS BIF #3
Pours a deep mahogany with hints of amber. An active and assertive foam leaps upward with a tan head that slowly recedes. Smells of bourbon, mainly bourbon, with dark fruit notes, hints of more subtle malts. Taste is even more bourbon. Bourbon really does take the driver's seat in this. As I search past the booze, I find date, raisin, fig, and slightly burnt molassess. Also, there's an herbal yeasty Belgian thang to give it some complexity. But it is a bit too bourbon forward. It does dominate the other flavors trying to com through. Mouthfeel is medium, yet warm from the booze. Overall, it's pretty good, but I'm wondering how this would be with a year or more on it. Would the booze be a more democratic dance partner? Well, I already popped the cork, so I may never know.
