Thanks @jzeilinger for this monster. Poured into my giant Duvel tulip glass bottled on 2/23/16. Poured slowly down the center at close to room temperature and got a massive 3 finger white head that settles quickly into a thin layer of bubbles and leaves behind no lace to speak of, the beer itself is a beautiful ruby red.

Smell is huge bourbon, vanilla, ripe fig, clove, banana peel, brown sugar, oak, hard candy, and more booze.

Taste just grabs a hold of you immediately starts with vanilla, oak, clove, banana bread, brown sugar, toffee, caramel, dark fruit, and slaps you in the face with bourbon and really gets your attention.

Overall this is the finest Quad I have ever had, but if you don't appreciate a BA aged beer then you have no business attempting this monster!

Black with fizzy yeasty bubbles.

Super potent whiskey on the nose, with the Belgian notes detectable only in the background. The taste is about identical.

Too much American booze in the Belgian inspired brew.

Look: It pours brown with some clouding. The head doesn’t last very long.

Aromas: It has aromas of bread, plums, spices, alcohol and whiskey.

Taste: The malt is very dominant in initial flavors with toast, a rich taste, caramel, alcohol, whisky elements, plums, and a bit of vanilla. The flavors work well together as part of the complexity of this particular brew.

Feel: It feels moderate on the heavy side with a fair amount of alcohol warming. It a complex bitter-sweet finish.

Overall: It is a warming, malty, rich and complex. Malts are more prominent but are balance well with the fruit and spice flavors.
