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.

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.

mjs (4742) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2013
(Keg at Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, 20131025) The beer poured dark brown and clouudy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had vineousness, wood and vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and quite dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were vineousness, vanilla, wood, caramell, malts and low bitterness. Afertaste had wood and bitterness. A tasty brew spoled by barrel aging which resulted in too much wood infused flavours and aromas.

Eructoblaster (3084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle - 375ml. Black body with an average beige foamy/creamy head. Superb, complex, rich malty/hoppy aroma with Bourbon, oaky, and nutty hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its well balanced taste carries Bourbon, woody, and licorice notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Outstanding winter warmer.
