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.

Tmoney99 (10466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark sweet fruit and woody whiskey alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Une bouteille de 37.5 cl bue en compagnie de rodenbach99 et de sa femme. Une robe brune et un petit col mousseux découragé. Un nez très doux de chocolat et de caramel avec un bourbon fort qui transporte des notes fruitées et boisées. Au goût, une eau-de-vie qui propose du caramel et d’autres notes sucrées. En bouche, un corps faiblement structuré avec des bulles bien molles et une texture aqueuse. Une finale parfumée par un bourbon trop doux. Rien de catastrophique dans cette bière complètement dominée par le bourbon et les sucres,

Bouteille de 375ml partagée avec Patrick mais on aurait été mille puis il en aurait resté. Je suis devant le dilemme de «rater» selon que la bière est bien faite ou buvable. Ici la bière est bien fabriquée mais elle est tout simplement imbuvable. Elle est trop sucrée, trop alcoolisée, trop bourbonnée par être vraiment intéressante. Franchement ce n’est pas pour moi.

7/28/13. 375mL bottle from Grassroots. Deep amber brown pour with a nice fluffy khaki head that sticks like a champ and coats the glass, even in lumps in spots. Mild fruity aroma, mildly malty - smells like beer, honestly - almost Budweiser in a sense (seriously) - with some BA burn. Surprisingly light flavor, some sweet fruits, water, and light BA and metal. I’m surprised at how light and unflavorful this is while being surprised at how drinkable it is considering the style and ABV. Eh.

This appeared in my bag from the day trip to Wolverhampton so I guess this is from BlackHaddock, thanks Jeremy if this came from you. Oxidised aroma. Some malt. But really very oxidised to the extent of being almost undrinkable. Nasty. Sorry, this is a drain pour.

2013.07.08 - Mikkeller Monk’s Brew Barrel Aged Bourbon Edition - 12.7 oz bottle in small Chimay goblet glass. Aroma: a bit of subdued toffee or candied fruit, bourbon/oak/vanilla Appearance: Pours around 28 on SRM scale. A moderately deep chestnut brown with red highlights. Head/carbonation was pretty vigorous on pour, about a finger or. Centimeter which settled to a creamy cap. Taste: Yummy. It’s a Belgian. Sweet malt, a tease of sour at the front, bit of peppery spice midway, and a smooth exit. This is pretty smooth for a 10%. Vanilla, oak, a trace of licorice maybe. Palate/Mouthfeel: a bit creamy but surprisingly slick and liquid. Little to no alcohol burn. Very well done. It’s not a unique beer IMO but it is well crafted. Aroma 6/10, Appearance 5/5, Taste 8/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 16/20

LtDan (1785) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Appearance: Pours a murky tea brown. Frothy tan film.

Aroma: Bourbon , toffee, dried dark fruit. Maple sugar.

Taste: Bourbon, sweet cereal, baking cocoa, woody finish. Lingers.

Mouthfeel: A bit astringent. Active, creamy carbonation.

Overall: Pretty complex and tasty, and I enjoyed this far more with the added treatment of bourbon barrels.

Boutip (4654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep dirty brown color ale with a large foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of huge bourbon notes with light vanilla notes with loads of residual sugar as well. Taste is an intense mix between loads of residual sugar notes with some vanilla and bourbon with some dry raisin and heavy caramelized malt notes. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation with some warming alcohol notes. Too big and too sweet for its own good.
