COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Quadrupel is easily one of the most rich and full bodied beers we make, so when Paul Hayden at the Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton, Missouri asked us to age some in a bourbon barrel, we were happy to oblige. The resulting ale is loaded with oak and bourbon character, as well as the rich, dried fruit character of the Quadrupel. We have created a unique taste you will only find in this extremely limited edition. We filled just one bourbon barrel and may never produce this beer again, so enjoy!

Aroma is sweet, burnt sugar/ caramel, vanilla, oak, butterscotch. So well integrated... S light alcohol... Taste is butterscotch, sweet caramel, bourbon, hops, and layers of vanilla, oak, and caramel. Finish is slightly oaky, caramel, hot alcohol, and burnt sugar. Wow. The descriptors do not do justice to how will integrated this beer is.

HMOG 2014. Ran across this and could not pass it up when I heard the story of how the person acquired the beer. Smooth red fruit and chewy malt. The couple of years of age have done this one well. Drinking very nicely right now. Dark red pour with a slight brown tint. Big malt aroma and great flavor. Little bit of alcohol on the back end just to remind it is barrel aged.

Bottle. Ruby color with thin head. Aroma is sweet, bourbon, vanilla, cherry, fruit, candy. Taste follows. Nice and malty, good amount of bourbon, vanilla, fruit. Really like the regular version of their quad, this definitely did not disappoint.

Thanks to Dice for sharing this. Pours clear amber. Really big fruity, strong, rich nose. Vanilla in spades. This is really nice -- wish I could have more! Intense and sweet, but not at all syrupy or cloying -- full and lush.

750 ml bottle shared by phaleslu. Pours a cloudy caramel brown color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, toffee, dark candied fruits, oak, bourbon and vanilla. There is a light spice character to this especially toward the finish. The barrel notes keep the sweetness in check. This was worth the try. Warming alcohol.

Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Festival. Pours a brown color with white head. Oaky, spicy, vanilla, bourbon flavors. A good amount of alcohol in the flavor.

Nice mouthfeel, a spicy yet barrel-y brew. Some vanilla to go with the beer’s caramel base.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle, shared by phaleslu. Mostly clear light brown / light red color. Minimal white head, couple bits of lace. Bigger body. Very light carbonation. Dry finish. Kind of a creamier texture. Interesting, dark fruity aroma. Woody, spicy barrel notes. Some vanilla in the flavor. Caramel malts, light toastiness. Sweeter flavor. Light alcohol heat and bite. Nice big flavorful quad. A bit heavy on the bourbon heat for me, though

750mL thanks to Jace! Muddy amber red pour. Weak foam. Nose is mega red licorice, big twizzlers, heavy sugar, fusel alcohol, white alcohol vapor. Moves to rich calvados and buttery shortbread if you pull your nose away like Scotch. Taste is quite nice, big maple syrup, massive maple density, some alcohol heat. Maple dessert heavy. Moderately chalky palate when it could be richer. Still, quite yummy even if mega sweet and not my style.

Thanks, Chris! Served in a cervoise. Nose has bourbon and backing oak along with some nice dark fruits. Flavor is fairly boozy with backing bourbon. Some fruit and oak. Medium body.
