If you are looking for a great quad you should give Wizard Burial Ground a try. This quadruple is a Belgian-style creation that is inspired from the Trappist brewers of Belgium. Made by Brewery Vivant, Wizard Burial Ground certainly offers a great taste that you would want to try out. The beer is aged in bourbon barrels for a year that brings in the deep red, garnet and brown hues to it. The beer is a full-bodied beer with a rich malty palate. The initial taste of the beer is sweet followed by a bitterness that gives it a distinct flavor. While it seems like a heavy beer, but Wizard Burial Ground is surprisingly light and clear allowing a great beer experience. The sweet taste of the beer seems like candi sugar, raisins, dates, plums and prunes and has a note of vanilla to it. The oak flavor gradually seeps in because of the barrel aging. The beer smells like a burnt caramel and also has oak and bourbon tones to it. Wizard Burial Ground also has low carbonation and therefore there is not much of a fizz factor to it. Overall, Wizard Burial Ground is a great quad that has transformed into a great craft beer due to barrel aging process.
