weihenweizen (1826) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Refrigerated 12.7 oz. brown bottle corked and capped poured into a Trappist glass. Pour hazy dark brown with no head, no carbonation, and no lacing. Aroma is light bourbon and medium body. Taste is bourbon, raisin, some oak, some vanilla, some cognac, and hints of alcohol. I prefer this to batch #7, but prefer batch #3 much more than this.

Shared with wim and bart at bart’s place. Hazy light brown colored beer with small white head and no carbonation visible. Alcoholic malty aroma. Medium sparkling palate. Finish is malty fruited sweet ending bit roasted.

solidfunk (4321) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Awesome balance. Some oak but well-balanced. Finishes a little bitter from the barrel with some sweetness. Hints of raisin, candied apple, floral yeast. Pours reddish brown and cloudy without much head or lacing. Bottle at Bottle bar.

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2014
Part of tasting session with Oak Aged #1, #10, #12, # 13, #14, and #17.Small off/white head, chunks of yeast floating around. Aroma of vanilla, wood, regular Quadrupel is also still there. Lots of wood and alcohol in flavor, vanilla, alcohol, burning sensation on the tongue. The flavor is completely dominated by bourbon, more or less ruining the beer. The worst of all batches i´ve had so far.

DuffMan (6974) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle, shared by Ferris. Murky amber brown. Apple brandy aroma. Estery caramel, dates, cooked apple, and (oddly) spiced rum. Warm alcoholic finish, bordering hot.

Ferris (4750) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle - Brown sugar, raisin, apple, fig and some light bourbon. Cloudy copper brown with a decent white head. Raisin, bourbon, and light sugars. Probably the worst in the batch. Richness doesn’t translate into the flavor.

4.3
   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 19/20
SVD (634) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2014
Batch 12, Bottle at home, Cola brown coloured beer with a small head. Aroma is bourbon and coganc, some wood. Taste is bourbon and cognac with Quadrupel. Very very nice.

LoFi (1594) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from backlog. Reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma: vinous, malty, dried fruit, vanilla, floral. Taste: malty, fruity, candy, licorice, vanilla, toffee, light floral. Well, tastes nice and it’s fun to have tried it, but not really worth the price.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014

Hazy amber-brown color, with small head. Candyish aroma, bubblegum, alcohol, grape spirit (grappa?), light banana. Soft mouthfeel, caramel flavor, nice oak and marshmallow feeling, hint of mint and chili pepper; correct bitterness; moderate sweetness.
Nice but not impressive.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
mcberko (6880) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out tons of bourbon barrels upfront, followed by booze, banana, and candied dark fruits. Flavour reveals rock candy, banana and bourbon upfront, followed by caramel and an alcohol burn. Really cohesive and well-put together. Excellent stuff.
