Picked this up at Bierhandel Willems en zoon in Belgium. Beautiful clear mahogany pour with a two finger off-white head with decent retention and nice lacing. The nose is amazing with huge vanilla, bourbon, and oak notes along with hints of butterscotch, orange peel, caramel, brown sugar, and subtle dark fruit. The taste mirrors the nose with the oak, vanilla, and bourbon once again the stars. Hints of maple, caramel, pecans, leather, tangerine, figs, apple,brown sugar, and booze. The mouthfeel is lightly syrupy with perfect carbonation and a smooth as silk, subtly warming finish. Overall, this is an amazing beer! It's rich and flavorful and hugely drinkable for an 11% ABV beer. I've had this numerous times on tap, but this is the first time from the bottle. I have to say it's just as good, and perhaps has mellowed a bit in the cellar. For me, this is a Barley Wine disguised as a Quad. Highly recommended!
