Style: Quadrupel (Quad)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Belgian style strong ale is rich in malty sweetness despite the relatively simple grain bill, which is what brewers call the grains that are used to make the wort. (Wort is the pre-beer liquid that is created by extracting fermentable sugars from the malt with hot water -- it’s essentially beer before the yeast is added). The Quad is brewed with Belgian yeast that produces esters (fruity flavors produced during fermentation), which give the beer its dark fruit notes of plum, cherry and raisin, along with a hint of spiciness. This big, dark beer is then aged in bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill for five months. The barrels impart some woodiness, bourbon flavor, and notes of vanilla to the beer, while mellowing it out to a deceptively smooth brew whose big ABV (alcohol by volume) of 11.4% is almost undetectable on the palate. Watch out, this Quad is complex and dangerous, but lots of fun to drink.

Extremely dark red/brown. OK, let's just agree to call it black. Very little head, no lace.
Smell is rum, malt,. herries, vanilla and the ABV will almost make you light-headed if you breathe deep enough. Well balanced is insulting & inadequate.
Taste, after a 30 minute warm up in 90° F weather, is equally well balanced and just as compkex. Malt, of course, cherries, vanilla, rum, a faint sweetness and a nice alcohol bloom. Only a slight medicinal note in the aftertaste detracts in any way from this brew.
Rich, full bodied, very lightly effervesced, pretty smooth with just a faint whiff of drying.Seriously good beer .

Shared bottle at the RBWG-2015.

Flavor: The barrel aging effects overwhelm the underlying quad.

Mouthfeel: Overly thin body.
Overall: whisky dominated.
