Voodoo Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: Quadrupel (Quad)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.40%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
This special batch of our Belgian Quadruple was aged in a menagerie of four different bourbon barrels for 20 months and blended together to perfection. Blending Old Forester, Heaven Hill, Woodford Reserve, and Buffalo Trace barrels together yielded an incredibly complex, layered beer rich in Belgian esters, oak, leather, dark fruits and bourbon.

Split a bottle with my favorite neighbor.
L: Dark mahogany, burgundy, and chocolate hues with a thin sandy head
S: Caramelized sugar, amaretto, figs, and dates
T: Dangerously complex with dried leather, cacao nibs, sticky cinnamon buns, black currants, prunes, and bourbon-soaked figs
F: On point - medium bordering on thick with a nice carb backdrop
O: To me this is the dark horse of the Barrel Room Collection V set. Absolutely blew me away with its complexity, rich flavors, and excellent barrel complement. Voodoo's barrel game is getting dangerous - they could probably barrel age Zima and it would be executed with perfection. Overall this was incredibly enjoyable and a BA Quad lover's dream.

8oz pour from the release. Lots of dark fruit and bourbon aroma. Belgian sugar, dark fruits and bourbon flavors. Didn't expect to like this as much as Cabernet Quadfather, but this was just as good if not better!
