(Bottle 01/08-2011) Low light brown head, unclear amber color, the white wine balance out some of the sweetness. More complex taste then the normal Quadrupel. Really good.

GothGargoyle (1598) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2011
Comes in a 375ml bottle with a cork and cage. The cork was plastic and I had some difficulty getting it out! Pours a murky brown with little head. The oak is quite present in the aroma, along with a little of the white wine, plus vanilla and brown sugar. There’s a good level of carbonation and a slightly creamy texture to it. The taste is of caramel, crisp white wine (perhaps Sauvignon Blanc), spices. Quite a unique beer.

Draught at Beer Temple. Pours hazy amber brown with small off white head. Aroma is fruity with raisins, plums and wine. Fruit and wine in the flavour along with oak and caramel.
