This dark rich ale is incredibly complex. Notes of dark fruit, caramelized sugar, toffee, raisins, and black pepper play against a sweet vanilla flavor from the oak and a round satiny finish from the hint of brandy left in the wood.

    Sampled at the Bistro 7th Annual Barrel Aged Festival on 11/10/2012. This abby quadruple pours a medium dark brown color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, brown sugar, wood and vanilla. A medium to full bodied quad. The malts are fruity, caramel, toffee, brown sugar and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Nice balance. Decent carbonation. Nice sipping beer. Very smooth. Hints of brandy with some alcohol. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    Love the base, love the bourbon version (though the bourbon overshadowed the beer a bit) and realy liked this one. It was nearly as complex as the bottled quad, moreso than the bourbon barreled. Much more fruitiness in both aroma and flavor than expexted. The spice and the dark fruity swetness play well with each other. Not hot at all for a double digit beer.
