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.

M_Sack (388) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle. Murky dark brown, small cappuccino coloured head with medium lacing. The alcohol is immediately apparent, followed by burnt molasses, dark chocolate, vanilla and pepper berries. Complex, rich and well balanced flavours of chocolate, alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, oak, honey and a slightly spicy hop finish which cleans up the richness of the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ABT_S54 (168) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
375ml bottle shared in a Trappist glass. Pours a thick, cloudy, dark brown colour with a very short lived bubbly beige head. Aroma is bourbon, oak, prunes, dates and more bourbon. Tastes I more of the same. Dark fruits, treacly flavours with a huge bourbon barrel backdrop. Mouthfeel is perfect and perfectly complements the rich nature of this (monk’s) brew. So close to being perfect if only the head was more prominent this would be up there with Goose Island Bourbon County as my favourite beer. Fantastic.

"Thick brown pour. Aroma dominated by bourbon. Sweet, with a hint of yeast. Pretty boozy, but oh so tasty. This must have spent a long time in barrels. Not as complex as the base beer, but pretty stinking good."

DocJitsu (989) - Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a dark bourbon color with a thick, well-retaining, dark tan head. Prune and brown sugar. Full body with a quite a bit of a burning scrub. Brown sugar, mild prune, and some notes of champagne at the finish.

wvhoran (296) - Tasmania, - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown colour, small tan head. Aroma is fruity, vanilla, woody, toffee. The flavor is sweet with vanilla, raisins, prunes, sweet malt. A bit rough to be honest; disappointing.

RickTheRick (395) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Brune impénétrable, un mince collet mousse ne fait que passer. Le bouquet est à la fois excessivement sucré et légèrement boisé. Le bourbon n’est pas tant présent en bouche, sauf peut-être une vague de chaleur qui enveloppe les gorgées. Bien ronde et sucrée, le chocolat et les fruits confits prennent d’assaut le palais. Des notes boisées, surtout en finale, sont également de la partie. Pas mal du tout.

oliodnb (329) - ITALY - JUL 26, 2014
Pours brown with a lot of yeast flakes, quickly disappearing light beige head. Heavy sweet smell, lot of bourbon aroma, some dark fruits (plums), light alcohol. Taste is sweet malts, plums, light cherries, some chocolate along with coffee and toasted notes. Bourbon is very present again.
