3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber. Dark amber with offwhite head. Aroma is dominated with bourbon. Cherry in the aroma as well, but having trouble picking up any Belgian yeast. Taste is also heavy with the bourbon. A good beer, but I think I’d prefer a little less bourbon and a bit more quad shining through.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
10cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival II 2016 (16 V 2016). This Bourbon quad fits the top 50 of quadrupel brews and it really has some trump cards. A brown ale with medium carbonation, dirty looking. Spices and bourbon notes cover the flavours, the mouthfeel is very dry, peaty, straw. The taste has a keen bitter sweet balance, making this a lovely, high alcohol drink.

Clear amber appearance. Aroma and flavour have some light fruits. Strangely some sweet tomato too. Flavour has lots of sweet Bourbon. Very dry and woody finish.

A taste from a friend (bottle) @ his home. Pours clear chestnut with a medium beige head. Aroma is malts, caramel, bourbon, oak and alcohol. Flavor is malts, nuts, caramel, bourbon, alcohol, some cherries and some hops. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At LIBF. Moussy, dense, egg-white head, cloudy amberish chestnut bronze colour. Rich aroma of vanilla tannins, dried banana, medlar, pear syrup, wet wood, bourbon, marzipan, candied orange, marmelade; sweet onset, rounded, brown sugar, fig, banana with a very (too?) subtle cherry sourishness, fluffy and full mouthfeel, caramelly, toffeeish, oaky finish with beautiful retronasal vanilla-like tannins, warming whisky-like alcohol. Rich and opulent, but perhaps a bit too much tilted to the sweet side, a tad more cherry tartness could probably have made this even better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet berries, bready, bit underwhelming. Soft taste, too barrel aged go me, thinning down the beer and giving sharp edges that don’t match the beer’s malt and yeast Base. It’s nice but I hoped for amazing. (At Libf 2016)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours a cloudy medium brown with a full tan head that is long lasting and produces plenty of Belgian lace. There are aromas of cherries, spices, dark fruits, plums roasted malts, toffee, and bourbon. The cherries fade a bit as the beer warms. There are cherry flavors, some tartness, roasted malts, toffee, bourbon, spices, and hints of vanilla. There is a powerful alcohol warm with a medium feel and some light mouth puckering.

Torpedo bottle. Brown colored. Just a great mix of bourbon wood notes and warming alcohol you get from a quad. Nice. Very nice. Give me another one please.!
