Elevation Beer Company False Summit Quadrupel Ale Aged In Bourbon Barrels
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Elevation Beer Company False Summit Quadrupel Ale Aged In Bourbon Barrels. I picked up this bottle while in Texas at Hall’s Wine & Spirits (here) which is a must visit bottle shop if you find yourself in or around Dallas.
From the Elevation Beer Company website: “Aromas of dark fruits, vanilla, and Bourbon seep off of False Summit from a milk chocolate head. The palate hits with notes of plums, dark cherries, bourbon, oak, and vanilla with a medium body to heavy body. False Summit is a beer to drink while mapping out your next adventure and should help motivate you to always keep moving to the top.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a clear dark brown with ruby accents, a thin off-white head and leaves a thin film of lacing on the glass.
Aroma: Vanilla, oak, caramel, bourbon, toffee, dark fruits, candi sugar and a slight bit of chocolate.
Taste: Dark fruits, bourbon, oak, vanilla, caramel, candi sugar and toffee.
Overall: Sweet and assertive, Elevation Beer Company False Summit Quadrupel Ale Aged In Bourbon Barrels is a nice barrel aged Quad. This 11.73% ABV offering is something I will certainly pick up again – delicious!
