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.

Bottle courtesy of Fux, synthetic cork
Bourbon and wine barrel

Cloudy amber color, small head. The aroma is malty, some wood and vanilla, light alcohol. Full bodied; sweet malt flavor, nice delicate vanilla and oak presence, but also a moderate tannic and vinous touch.
Fully mature, complex, very good.

Grzesiek79 (4223) - Radom, POLAND - APR 17, 2017
Many thanks for this beer to tderoeck. 750 ml bottle. Brewed in 05.02.2008 and Bottled in 30.05.2012. Syntetyczny korek, aromat silny owocow suszonych, gruszki, brzoskwinie i morele. Wyglad jasno bursztynowy, metny. Smak Sporo slodkosci, ciut wanilowego smaku wraz z pieprzowa nuta, zdecydowanie Bourbon w smaku, beczki po bialym winie nic tu nie wniosly. Tak wiec jest to piwo w smaku zdecydowanie za slodkie, bourbonowo-whiskowe. Cale szczescie ze alkohol ukryty, ale rozgrzewal i tu sie go wyczuwalo i jeszcze troche w aromacie. Po wysokiej ocenie spodziewalem sie mega swietnego piwa, a bylo tylko dobre, wiec przy takim nastawieniu moge stwierdzic ze nieco sie rozczarowalem

pjotrapostou (164) - POLAND - MAR 27, 2017
Przyprawowe, lekko pikantne, dość mocno gazowane, wytrawne. W tle nieco alkoholowa goryczka, ale mimo tego całkiem nieźle to wszystko się ze sobą łączy.

Barrel is absolutely not present in the aroma. It is quite to hoppy and light in texture to be quadruple. Worth to try.

scirtes (577) - POLAND - MAR 9, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark amber, with yellowish head. Aromas of fruits: pineapple, red fruits, alcohol, hints of phenolic notes. Sweet, with low bitterness, lots of dried fruits in aftertaste. Fizzy carbonation. Quite interesting but alcohol is a bit too distinct and barrel notes are very subtle.

mgajdaczewa (1982) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Aromat jest piękny, choć drożdże powędrowały w dziwną nieco stronę. Naprodukowały nut owocowych, kombinacja brzoskwini, banana a nawet ananasa! Do tego drewno, muśnięcie wanilii, bardzo zachęcająco. W smaku jednak duuużo poniżej poziomu browaru. Przede wszystkim masa tanin i mokrego drewna, prchna. Kontrowane przez przyjemną drożdżową owocowość. Goryczka jest stosunkowo wysoka i taniczna. Tragedii jednak nie ma, całość się w miarę broni.
