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.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2016 Mooi amberkleurig bier met fijne witte schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Complex, redelijk zoet, aroma van geel fruit, gist, perzik, abrikoos. Likeurachtige smaak, blijft lekker plakken en hangen in de mond. Super stuff !!!

Aspetto: ambrato molto scuro, schiuma un po' dorata, abbastanza abbondante, fine e persistente. Aroma: vinoso, leggermente agrodolce, vaniglia, botte, bourbon, fruttato e caramello. Gusto: tutti i sentori avvertiti al naso e in maniera molto abbondante. Corpo decisamente è strutturato, carbonizzazione media. Birra veramente fenomenale, complessissima, ricca di sapori e decisamente appagante. Un altro capolavoro di questo birrificio. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
