2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Boozy bourbon aroma with a lot of wood and a little vanilla. To me a quadrupel is more about complex malt and yeast flavors, but this is all about the alcohol. Taste is bourbon, overwhelming everything except a faint cherry aftertaste. If I wanted bourbon, I’d have bought bourbon. Very disappointing effort from a brewery I really like.

Aroma is cherry, sour grapes, slight earthiness, sweet whiskey barrels, oak, rich malts, plum, candy sugar and raisins. Taste is sweet rich malts with a well balanced body of bourbon, dark fruits and belgian sugar. Appearance is a hazy amber with a thin pearl head that retains quite well.

750 mL bottle. Reddish brown with a small beige head. Huge barrel in the nose. Losta coconut and vanilla in the flavour as well. You’d notice the cherries if they weren’t there, but they don’t stand out. Balance of tartness and brown sugar sweetness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 edition. Pours hazy chestnut-brown with a 1-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of caramel and vanilla with a touch of cherry. A nice oak note too. Body is full and lightly syrupy, with an astringent finish. Flavors of caramel and cherry up front, with some vanilla underneath. Woody note from the oak lingers pleasantly in the finish. Would have benefited from some more aging, but still damned good.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from December 2014. Pours opaque dark chestnut brown body. Full finger of foam that has nice staying power. Enticing aroma of buttery oak, vanilla, honey, and nutmeg. Marginally sweet flavors of toffee, brown sugar and fig balanced out with slightly tart cherries and yeasty pancake batter. Complexity redolent of the quadratic equation. Semi-dry, peppery finish with nice level of heat.
