COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quadrupel barrel aged on Bourbon barrels. Nice malty taste with notes of dark chocolate and dark fruits. The barrel aging gives a nice warmth from the alcohol as well as a nice aroma of vanilla.

Pours brown with a medium brown lasting head. Nose is really fruity with nuts, toast, bourbon barrel, grapes, plums, wood, and oak. Flavor is very light spice, dark cherries, berries, grape juice, plums, sweet malts. Rich and fruity. Medium light sweetness. Slightly watery texture. I enjoyed this. One of the better mikkeller beers I’ve had.

pushkinwow (2214) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
375ml bottle. Nice dirty brown with a light beige heads that completely disappears. Bourbon, semi buttery, with some vanilla and oak overwhelms pretty much anything you get in terms of belgian yeast and sugars etc that you typically associate with an abt/quad. On the one hand I enjoy it because its a nice bourbon flavour but on the other hand I would rather have the bourbon compliment rather then overwhelm. High carbonation, moderate body, alcohol, sweet at first and then cloying on the finish. Promising but too unbalanced for my liking.

mverity (294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Opaque deep brown with hints of garnet. Head is thick and tan and pretty dang persistent. Aroma is some earthy-musty dark fruits, some char notes too. Taste is considerably better. Same deep fruit character (cherry, fig, plum), red wine-like, some char too. Nice and velvety on the tongue, medium body (which I find a tad thin for a quad) and nice low carbonation. Great lingering taste.

12.7oz bottle, shared. Clear brown red color. Thin off-white head. No lace sticks. A lot of wood, spice, vanilla, bourbon flavors in the nose. Dark fruit in the flavor, lighter spice. Bigger body, but dry. Smooth, soft, sort of lighter carbonation. Nice moderate sweet taste, good light hint of alcohol. Very enjoyable bourbon barrel aged quad. Nice dark fruit notes, good level of bourbon and alcohol.
