COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2009/2010 batch (#2) is a Belgian Quadrupel aged in a Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout cask for 20 months by it’s re-release in 2010. During this time some wild yeast development as also occured. A younger version was limited release in 2009 and at that point had not developed any wild yeast tones. 2008 Batch #1 were aged various lengths (8 to 18 months) in a 5th use bourbon barrel and then dry-hopped with English Fuggles hop. The initial Livery batch 99 was brewed for release in celebration of the 2nd anniversary of the brewery in 2007.

Many thanks to Mike for sending this my way! Poured clear, lighter-than-expected medium orange with just a loose-bubbled cap of off-white head. The aroma was sweet, with a whole lot going on... sweet pears and oranges, some caramel and toffee, and warm spices, but the ABV never really comes into play.. overall entirely sweet and enjoyable! The flavor began with sweeter toffee and lighter fruit notes with warm, spiced notes on the back-end, and an oak-accented fruity finish. Warm and heavier-bodied on the palate with lots of fruits and excellent balance! This was very well enjoyable!

On tap and enjoyed at Steve’s Birthday bash, snifter: Coppery red with a small head and spotty lace. (still could use more carbonation). The nose detects pear, crabapple, cherry pit and even a hint of a rye-like ester. There is also some wood, caramel, bready and slight alcohol notes as well. Very aromatic and phenolic, NICE!

The taste starts sweet but not cloy with a grassy bitterness. I found a constant yeast and nutty profile with warming alcohol and wood upon the finish. Sublime Creme Brule and mineral water also dashing in and out.

The mouth feel is smooth and oily, warming but not boozy. OUTSTANDING, the barrel influence is there but accents the beer and does not overpower.
