Wild Belgian-Style Quadrupel Aged in Charred Oak

(1) 750mL Bottle, 10.9% ABV

Our first Luminary Society release of 2022 is a luscious and tart Belgian-Style Quadrupel aged in charred Bourbon barrels. First brewed in fall of 2020, the base of this beer is a rich and malt-forward Dark Strong Ale brewed with an abundance of caramel malts and fermented with our Belgian Abbey yeast. Following primary fermentation in stainless steel, the Quad moved to charred Four Roses Bourbon barrels for secondary fermentation with a mixed culture blend. After 13 months of aging, the sumptuous ale took on tangy notes of sour cherry and plum, balanced by oaky and earthy tannins. In late 2021 we blended the barrel-aged Ale with a single barrel of a soured Dunkel, intended to lighten the body and strength of this increasingly robust project. The result feels just right for the season - a flavorful, velvety sipper which balances the decadence of rich, Belgian malts with lively acidity and a hint of spice.
