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.

Denne l der har lagt p win/whisky fad har en rdlig lys farve og er lidt uklar. Desuden har den et meget tyndt hvidt skum. llen er meget sd og cremet, hvilket virkelig er en god oplevelse i munden. Krafdulg smag og medium karbonering.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2016 Skromna kremowa piana, dość szybko opadająca do obrączki. Barwa ciemno bursztynowa, mętna. Aromat bardzo przyjemny, wyraźna nuta beczki, wanilii i kokosa na pierwszym planie, w tle lekko dzikie zapachy słomy oraz kandyzowanych i suszonych owocw (papaja, rodzynki, figi), na koniec zapach ociera się o pina coladę. Klasa! W smaku jest jeszcze lepiej. Na początku owocowo, słodycz kandyzowanego mango i kwaskowość ananasa przechodzą w kokosowe malibu i likier waniliowy, żeby w końcu zostać skontrowanym przez bardzo delikatną ziołowo-pestkową goryczkę. W afterteasie posmak whisky, rumu i minimalna cierpkość starego drewna. Alkohol wyraźny, ale szlachetnie rozgrzewający, dobrze dopełniający likierowy charakter całości. Nagazowanie początkowo średnie, szybko przechodzi w niskie, drobne i nieznacznie musujące na języku.
Wielość doznań to głwna zaleta tego napitku. Dotyczy to zarwno zapachu jak i smaku. Leżakowanie tyle lat w dwch rżnych beczkach po bardzo szlachetnych trunkach nadało piwu unikalnych i niepowtarzalnych cech. Ananasowo kokosowo waniliowa BOMBA warta każdej wydanej złotwki!
