COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the Trappist breweries of Belgium this Belgian Style Quadruple is the base beer that we are currently aging in Oak Bourbon barrels. A malt forward but yet fruity aroma smoothly transitions into caramel and dark fruit showcasing the versatility of our house yeast strain. A well-balanced finish makes this strong but quaffable beer the perfect way to end a long day

arpagamos (5) - Ault, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2013
On tap at funkwerks. Pour is a Hazel Golden brown with no head. Aroma is full of malt that is caramel and buttery. The taste is full of butter scotch with Bourbon and some hints of dark raspberry. The booze is strong in this one, but not overwhelming. Finish comes together nicely and smooth.

jcnielsen (2108) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from SirADNielsen, thanks Aaron! Pours a cloudy brownish orange color with minimal head. Bourbon, vanilla, slight fruity aromas. Solid, but not spectacular barrel aged beer.

crossovert (7410) - Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2014
750ml bottle. Not a style I particularily prefer with bourbon. It is like a bourbon old fashoned.

Concealer (776) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2014

ModeEngage (151) - Lowell, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Tap at the source. Pours the exact, opaque color of apple cider with thin white head. Smells of molasses, apricot, dark fruit, and wood. Drinks with a mild alcoholic bite and mild lingering bitterness. Medium to full bodied. Tastes of bread, esthers, sugar, and vanilla.

Steve_0 (2676) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2014
On tap at Boulder Strong Ale Fest (2014). Pour is murky amber with a small white head and decent lacing. Dark fruits, toffee, caramel, bread, lighty whisky, banana, raisins, and figs in the aroma. Taste is slightly oxidized, bready, caramelly, prunes, plums, figs, and roasted malt with a light alcoholic burn on the back-end. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Much better than the original.
