4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottled from the monastery, tasted side by side with a regular Quadrupel and Oak Aged batch #9. Ruby colored, small head. The port notes emerge immediately pouring it into the glass, very powerful, fruity, oak, combined with all the other features that are already in a normal Quadrupel, absolutely fantastic. Very complex yet smooth fruity flavor, oak, raisins, malts. Lasting fruity finish. By far the best Oak Aged i’ve had so far, immensely complex, yet very smooth and balanced. Please, make this version again!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An old rating from the Kulminator. Pours a slightly hazy orang/brown with suspended particles. Small light tan head falls to a ring. The smell is a big sweet malty nose, oak, booze and dark fruit. The taste follows the nose with cherries, a little heat with a fruity and slightly dry finish. Medium body with a crisp carbonation.

Bottle bought at the brewery. Wonderful aroma, like julmust in Sweden. Looks like mead drunk in Finland during 1st of may. Taste like port wine, wood, sahti. Lovely stuff!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlog from notes, tasted sometime in 2011. Pours semi-clear dark amber/chestnut with little head, light lacing around the glass. Aroma is oaky vanilla, dark raisins and caramel, juicy, alcohol wafting on top. Taste follows the nose, though a bit darker- prunes, subtle banana notes, charred oak and alcohol at the end, lingering caramel. Thin in the mouth for this ABV, but goes down easy. Could use a bit more body, but overall nice.
