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.

brnandersen (1793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2013
375 ml. bottle poured in to a trappist glass. Dark brown colour with a dense, creamy tan head. Sweet and fruity aroma with candy sugar, overripe, almost rotting fruits, figs and resins, bourbon barrels, vanilla, Belgian yeast and an alcohol note. Sweet taste. Full body, oily feel, soft carbonation. Finishes sweet, fruity and spicy with alcohol and yeasty notes. Good and complex brew however, lacks a bit barrel character to be excellent.

ddemmingjr (689) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle: pours dark, murky, muddy brown with milky off white head that looks like cream on a Starbucks coffee. Nose is brutal bourbon, wood, raisins, molasses and coffee. Loads of bourbon, vanilla, caramel malts and alcohol heat on the finish. The beer grows on you but it's somewhat rough and uneven for BB quad. ABV is noticeable for sure ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
