This Barrel aged Belgian quad has all the boldness and complexity you’d expect from the style. This rich malt driven beer has notes of dark fruit and caramel supported by yeast driven apricot and pear flavors, and complimented still by the oaky character of the brandy barrels it was aged in. This beer has a warming alcohol presence and a tart finish, and pairs well with venison, sharp cheddar, and peking duck.

Draft. Murky orange hued brown color. You know those beers that are all barrels and no beer? Well this is it. Who could even tell there is a big Belgian beer here. Just straight up alcohol barrel. Some apple sweetness. Maybe this needs and Impy stout rather than this base beer.

On tap at Peddler's Village Taproom in Lahaska, PA. 14.9% ABV. Light brown color with a brief creamy beige head. Wow, this is big. Sweet, boozy caramel malt aroma hints at dried fruit and vanilla. Big creamy notes of apple and dried fruits upfront. Sweet malty notes dominate. Lots of warming alcohol in finish.

Sample at Beer Meets Wood on 09/23/2017. Dark reddish-brown color with a medium thick beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Small patches of lace. Aroma of oak, malt, yeast and fruit. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit, earthy yeast and oak. The finish is oaky and fruity with a malty aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Drank from the bottle but the smell filled the room. Molasses, licorice, figs, raisins, plums, I thought the booze was bourbon. A trip. Great headache beer.

Pours unclear brown, not much head. Smell is intense, bit boozy, oak. Rather sweet. Taste is intense, rarher boozy, grains, brandy. Ok

Alengrin (6092) - BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2017
As Free Will Black Friday (a reference to Bruery’s Black Tuesday?), at Uncle Babe’s in Gent. Loose and bubbly, pale beige head dissolving in the middle but leaving a thin rim around the edge; very dark hazy bronze robe with warm wine-red hue. Strong aroma of candied dates, caramel candy, calvados, vanilla-ish oak wood, sweet cider, raisins soaked in brown rum, pear brandy, stewed plums, brown sugar, chocolate. Sweet, estery and very fruity onset, lots of red apple, date, fig and some banana with a light tartness, soft carbo, very fluffy, rounded, thick and smooth mouthfeel, brown sugar sweetness paired with caramelly malt sweetness, very lightly chocolatey perhaps, leading to a boozy, long finish of pleasant oak tannins including retronasal vague vanilla, some light earthiness and - more than anything else - heating, yet still not astringent, very pronounced calvados- or rum-like alcohol. Rich, sweet, fruity sipper, a bit too boozy to my personal taste, but certainly a very accomplished beer, with the soft fluffiness, dark fruits and residual brown sugar sweetness in the mouth that befits a true quadrupel.
