Big thanks to mikecharley for this one!

This pours up a color that at first appears to be amber. Backlighting though, reveals that it is actually more garnet in color. Very nice looking. The bone-white head is somewhat thin and wispy, but at 11.8%, that's not unexpected. It leaves a surface ring of tiny-to-medium-sized bubbles. The lacing is in thin strands and small spots, but is nicely clingy.

Loads of dark fruit notes emanate from this glass. Raisins, figs and a lot of grape notes. Dark cherries and a touch of raspberries(!). A good dose of vanilla and a touch of oak. A mild hint of booziness. Very good presence of Belgian yeasty spice notes.

The flavor follows the nose very well. The dark fruits are all over this, though not in an overpowering sense. They blend well with malty sweetness, along with notes of caramel and toffee. The spicy belgian yeast notes are all around, also. There is toasted coconut to complement the vanilla. The booziness is warming, but not too bold in the flaoor area.

This is full-bodied and almost 'slick'. It has a light level of carbonation. It's nicely smooth, but I wish that it had more creaminess to it.

Very good and one of the better barrel-aged quads that I've had.
Weyerbacher continues to impress me. What an awesome brewery!

750 ml caged and corked bottle, 2011 vintage. Served in a Dogfish Head Signature glass, the beer pours a murky brownish/red color with about a half inch off-white head that went away quickly. Not much lacing at all. Aroma is very nice, it smells like dark fruit, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, sweet apples and some brandy. The taste is pretty much like the aroma, the brew tastes like dark fruit (raisins, plums, figs), caramel, bourbon, vanilla, oak, booze and candy sugar. Mouthfeel/body is full, it's coating and thick with low carbonation. I think this is a good beer overall. And for just $7.99 a bottle, I'd definitely buy this again, it's certainly a bargain for the price.
