COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale was brewed back in 2008, and in collaboration with brew master Ryohei Sugawa San from Rio Brewing & Co. Our goal was to brew a Belgian dark golden blond quadrupel with an enormous potential of aromas and flavors, and added complexity due to oak barrel aging. Bourbon barels from Kentucky were chosen due to their very special soft roast quality and noble vanilla flavors. Year upon year, different quality controls were executed, and we finally decided to bottle condition this very special ale in May 2012. Another three moths of cold maturing was done at the brewery, so we could be sure about the absolute quality before releasing to our customers.

TychoJames (500) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Bärnstensfärgad med smutsvitt skum. Fuktig doft av apelsin, lite russin, knäck och fat. Komplex smak med sirap, torkad frukt, vörtbröd och lite aprikos. Ju varmare den blir ju mer chokladtoner kommer fram. Känns välgjord med mycket bra balans. Mjuk och värmade alkoholstyrka med bra kolsyra.

chromeotaphor (103) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2015
diep donker fris aroma hinten van port caramel anijs vanille en met name (whisky) bourbon. Erg appart. Rood bruinig troebel uiterlijk met een kleine schuimkraag die nauwelijks aanwezig is. Zeer complexe en uitgebreide smaak die mooi geleidelijk los komt. Hint van zachte vanille en caramel/fudge. Rokerige smaak van whisky (bourbon) aanwezig. Een zachte romigheid aanwezig. Doet daarnaast sherry achtig aan. Prachtige opbouw van smaken. Met een afdronk van bourbon.
