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.

Lele (477) - Padova, ITALY - OCT 18, 2016
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

Pullo @ K&S Beer & Tobacco, Brugge. Kaatuu trappistipikariin likaisen ruskeana ja sameana, noin sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Koitti mys kiivet ulos pullosta avatessa. Todella kompleksisessa tuoksussa on vahvimpana toffeemaisuutta ja pryn, mutta mys tynnyrinnin vanilijaisuus, viiniminen marjaisuus ja phkininen paahteisuus ovat reilusti mukana. Jtvn upea tuoksu. Maku on mys hyvin kompleksinen, vanilijaisuuden ollessa vahvinta. Pryninen hedelmisyys on mys vahvana, sek phkinisyys. Kuivattua hedelmisyyttkin on reilusti. Suutuntuma on hyvin tytelinen, makeahko ja hieman alkoholinen. Aivan uskomaton tuoksu, jossa tynnyrinnit sulautuvat toisiinsa ja pohjalla olevaan olueen upeasti. Tmn jlkeen odotin maulta enemmn, ja vaikka se hyv onkin, niin ei yll samaan monipuolisuuteen kuin tuoksu. Todella hieno olut kuitenkin.

Crazy complex, notes of bourbon, white wine, dried fruit, esters, apricot, some malt, all served up in a very smooth beer.

Muy buena, envejecida en barriles de roble. El alcohol est muy bien integrado. Bastante cuerpo. El primer punto es de una quadrupel y despus le va saliendo el sabor del barril y quizs a regaliz al final.

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze czerwono brazowym z niezbyt obfita biala piana. W aromacie wachlarz od przypraw i suszonych owocow poprzez wanilie, karmel i szlachetny alkohol konczac na slodach. W smaku raczej slodko z lekka kontra kwaskowosci, tez troche takiej jakby "dzikosci" od beczki. Czuc tez palony cukier, rodzynki i sliwki. Piwo gladkie i troche oleiste, alkohol mocno rozgrzewa gardlo. Bardzo zlozone i intensywne w odbiorze.

oyvindp (1) - - JUL 27, 2016 does not count
2009 vintage, 75cl bottle. Amber quad. Great carbonation. Lots of caramel in aroma and taste. Would easily do 2-3 more years in cellar. Still doesnt feel fully developed. Very similar to La Trappe batches.

butelka, warka do 30/10/2019 (czyli wersja uwarzona w 2011) nieco zamglone, ciemno herbaciano-rubinowe piwo z kiepska piana. aromaty intensywne - na dziendobry przyprawy, suszone i kandyzowane owoce, banany i postbeczkowe klimaty (ciut wanilii, ciut burbona, ciut ziemisto-drewniane klimaty). Jest tez niemalo kandyzowanego cukru, karmelu, bejcy. w ustach na dziendobry przemilo gladka faktura, mimo poszczypujacego wysycenia. pojawia sie tez alkohol, ktory trwa w posmakach, ale nie jest irytujacy, jest wkomponowany, dopiero jak kilka sekund po przelknieciu nadal go czuc moze wkurzac. jest slodko, jest kwaskowato, aromaty przekuly sie na smaki 1 do 1 :) jest bdb+, przed wiekszymi orgazmami wstrzymuje dosc dlugi posmak alkoholowy, nieco zbyt wysoka yyy... bejcowatosc, i nieco zbyt malo ciala. Niemniej piwo robi wrazenie, wybitnie degustacyjne.
UPDATE: w temperaturze niemal pokojowej zyskuje: slodsze sie staje, bejcowatosc zanika nieco, owoce kandyzowane, zwlaszcza figi bardziej do przodu wychodza... az ocene se podniose, taki sensoryk ze mnie, a co
