Bottle courtesy of Fux, synthetic cork
Bourbon and wine barrel
Cloudy amber color, small head. The aroma is malty, some wood and vanilla, light alcohol. Full bodied; sweet malt flavor, nice delicate vanilla and oak presence, but also a moderate tannic and vinous touch.
Fully mature, complex, very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty brown color ale with a large foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry fruits with some bourbon notes and some residual sugars is quite complex. Taste is a complex mix of bourbon with light residual candi sugar with some, fruity ester and some dry fruits notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Nice level of complexity thought a fuller body would have help appreciate this even more.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Collaboration between Struise Brouwers and Rychei Sugawa San of Rio Brewing, made in 2008. Vintage tasted a few years later. Off-white, stable head, colour hazy bronze. Very appealing, perfumey aroma of chocolate bars, candied figs, honey, marzipan, ginger, amaretto, sweet cider, gingerbread, orange peel, whisky... Very complex taste, candied orange in onset, sweet and spicy, on a rich and deep caramelly malt base, drying towards the finish and ending in a wonderful play of aromatic hops, dried fruits and warm, cognac-like, satisfying alcohol without becoming wry. Amazingly complex and well-balanced quadrupel, deserves no less than a four star rating, in my view not that far away from perfection.

"What a deliciously complex quad this turned out to be. VERY well balanced between the base beer (prototype dark fruit, bread and spice belgian quad) sweet woodsie bourbon, and red wine. Delicious and smooth!! Don’t know how much this one cost, and probably don;t want to :)"

750ml Bottle shared between 6 at the Midland meet on 24th Aug 2014. Lovely, lovely beer, reminded me of Orange Liqueur in the nose. Poured an orange hue of light brown with a small head. The nose boozy, obviously orangey and sweet. The taste was more caramel and golden syrup than Orange Liqueur, but some orange hints were certainly there in the beers flavours. Rich and most enjoyable, cheers Richie for bringing it.
