4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on tap at the 2007 Bistro West Coast Barrel Aged Beer Festival. This Belgian quad pours a medium amber color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is bourbon, malts, touch of cherries, and some oak. Medium to full-bodied quad. The malts are fruity and caramel. Some tartness form cherries and pomegranates (?) balance the bourbon barrel flavors. Nice sweetness and fruitiness with the bourbon barrel flavors. I can still taste the Decadence 12 in this beer, but it has metamorphed into this incredible beer. NICE. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
