The taste of this one is heaven. The bourbon barrel really brings out the best of this beer. You have a lot going on and I canít even begin to pick out every single thing, but I will try. A rich malt base with caramel, vanilla, brown sugar. Sounds sweet? The barrel aromas step in and balance it out. It has a nice, round, full bodied taste with a long finish where the bourbon barrel notes just wont disappear. I really enjoyed this one.

Bottle at home. Two year old. Has a deep unclear mahogany colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of oak, dried fruit, heather, red berries and some alcohol and chocolate. Has a silky mouth feel, full-bodied and light bitterness. A complex and very rich ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy dark amber pour with small tan head. Aroma of malts, fruits, toffee, vanilla and bourbon. Taste of malts, toffee, dried fruits, vanilla, oak, bourbon and subtle cherries. Full bodied, medium to low carbonation, strong bourbon finish that mellowed at lower temps. A little off balance but enjoyed more closer to room temperature.

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.

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.
