COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This abbey-style quadrupel is a dark, storng ale separated into oak bourbon barrels to age for various lengths of time, some for up to three years. Cherries are added to make up for the "angel's share" of beer lost during barrel aging. Selected barrels are blended for optimum flavor. Warm and toasty with aromas of bourbon, oak and vanilla, Bourbon Barrel Quad also retains a hint of tart cherry with caramel notes.

Not really a quad, but an interesting experiment. The bourbon mostly hides any complexity yeasty or otherwise that goes on in any belgian style. Very drinkable, nice job hiding the booze though a bit hot in the finish. Nice lacing, surprising, with a hazy murky brown. Nose has some of the ester profile I'd hope for. brown sugar, dark fruit, butterscotch.

Compared to what Quad's normally are I was a little disappointed with this complexity. That being said, I did like the quad as an avenue for bourbon syrupyness.

Bottle->snifter. Deep chestnut with small loose ecru head. Dark fruit, candied sugar, yeast, booze, caramel, toffee. Ok, nothing great.

Delicious, but far away from a Quad style. More like a strong Scotch Ale. Toffee is overdominant. Bouteille 750 ml de LCBO. Une dominance de sucres aux notes de toffee, de vanille, de cassonade, avec de la cerise en prime. Le Bourbon est également bien implanté. Présence de boisé en sous-note. Il y manque cependant les fruits noirs et les épices. Liquide ambré, cuivré foncé, clair, avec des bulles éparpillées et une mousse format moyen, effervescente, qui descend assez rapidement. En bouche, le caramel est dominant, avec l'alcool puissant en finale. Les cerises sont en sous-note. L'effervescence est active et rehausse la buvabilité de cette bière, malgré son alcool puissant. On est cependant loin des traditions d'une quadruple. Je dirais plus une Scotch ale très alcoolisée. Malgré ses manquement au style, elle demeure délicieuse.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2018 75 cl bottle @ Landgoed Den Oker, shared with others. Amber coloured beer, almost no head. Malty aroma with a strong Bourbon presence. Taste is rather sweet and fruity, and full of alcohol.

On tap. Pours a nice mahogany color with a good head. Aroma of dark fruit, bourbon, spice and bit of grain. Taste of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit with bit of bourbon and yeast. Light bitterness and fairly clean finish. Medium body, smooth and well balanced. Very enjoyable.

Flarra hos Reza. Kraftigt rostfärgad supergrumlig. Doftar russin och bourbon. Smakar detsamma. Lite starkvin ha ha nä påminner mye om gott starkvin.
