What the brewers say

“Cut from a similar recipe, this barrel-aged quad evolves and shows a different face each year. It has a full body and lush texture with barrel expression all over: toasted oak, coconut, leather, and rich cigar tobacco.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Whiskey, vanilla, oak, and leather with banana. There’s underlying toast and chocolate. Plum and raisin behind all of that. Toasty malt notes.”

Flavor: “Big flavor with a ton of vanilla, then caramel, toffee, and dark fruit. Almost cake-like sweetness balanced a bit by moderate bitterness and alcohol, but some of the sweetness lingers. There’s moderate alcohol warmth.”

Overall: “The vanilla-forward character with the more subtle malt and fruit is likeable. Nice notes of leather and vanilla with oak come through, but some will find that this one finishes and carries a bit sweet and hot throughout.”
