Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Quadrupel is easily one of the most rich and full bodied beers we make, so when Paul Hayden at the Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton, Missouri asked us to age some in a bourbon barrel, we were happy to oblige. The resulting ale is loaded with oak and bourbon character, as well as the rich, dried fruit character of the Quadrupel. We have created a unique taste you will only find in this extremely limited edition. We filled just one bourbon barrel and may never produce this beer again, so enjoy!

Brown in color with some serious haziness. Probably close in complexion to water from the Mississippi River. Light Brussels lacing. Just a trace of off white head on top. Sweet and strong aroma of bourbon is what I get. The flavor is very sweet and malty with notes of toffee and bourbon. There's a residual sweetness that lasts in the aftertaste. Perhaps a bit too sweet for me. The mouth is very sticky and thick.

750 mL bottle shared by Chris. Thanks for the rarity!

Pours a dark clear copper-amber color with a quickly fading off white head; no lace or retention. Very boozy on the nose and body, loads of bourbon, caramel, sugar, vanilla, oak and dark fruit. A little thin for style, medium bodied with light carbonation and a very hot, alcohol finish. Still needs some time, but not much upside here.

204 bottles made.

pour was a toffee brown, soft silky caramel. light head.

vanilla and sweet dark candy all up in your nose. very rich, bright, and bourbon.

very bourbon forward. the quad was a tad bit muted which for me is great, i hate quads. however the integration of the bourbon just leveled this out. the dark fruits and fruity yeast with the bourbon and vanilla made for a great winter sipper.

mild to moderate carbonation. very full bodied.

this was great, probably peaking. bourbon was very much there but not hot.

A: pours a clear copper color with a finger of off-white head that recedes into a thin ring with no lacing.

S: lots of caramelized sugar on the nose with oak, vanilla, caramel, and bourbon very present. There are also some light notes of dark fruits and candy sugar.

T: lots of bourbon here with vanilla, oak, caramel, and toffee. Candy sugar, spices, and fig-like flavors come throuh as well. The finish has a moderate alcohol burn.

M: thick body witb lowish cafbonation, this beer is sticky sweet. It's a bit underattenuated for a quad, but that's not surprising since it's barrel aged.

O: a good beer overall. It's a bit too boozy and I wish I had a bottle to save for a few years, but it's still enjoyable.
