COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
De geur is zacht met opvallende houtnotes. Bloemig en zoetig als bloesemhoning. Amandel en vanillegeur aanwezig en natuurlijk de normale Quadrupelgeur welke echter op de achtergrond blijft. De eerst dronk smaakt duidelijk naar zacht rode wijn gevolgd door hout, tannines en rook welke langzaam overgaan in een zachte honigzoetigheid. Naarmate het bier warmer wordt gedronken komt de eikensmaak meer naar voren en lijkt het bier tanninerijker te worden. Daardoor is deze batch voldoende bitter en blijft de houtsmaak op de achtergrond aanwezig. Deze Quadrupel is medium zoet en droger dan de gewone Quadrupel. ’Late burgundy vaten’ 91% Nieuw eiken (high toast) 4,5% Nieuw accasia (medium toast) 4,5%

Bov (9335) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2014
courtesy of Toni Flükiger - quite clear reddish-brown beer with a poor head retention; fairly woody, vinous with notes of prunes, apples, a bit marmalade-like, astringent but with a fair sweetness, solid carbonation; finishes decently dry with solid woody note and more hints of red fruits marmalade and marshmallows

thanatosti (881) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2013
37,5 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ OLV Koningshoeven, Berkel Enschot. A special and my most expensive beer to date for my 750th rating. Pours clear dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of wood, red wine and whisky. Taste is even more woody with a hint of smoke which evolves into a longlasting dry aftertaste. A truly great beer with an unique flavour.

martjoobolut (596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 20, 2013
0,375L bottle. Aroma again is very different from the regular version. Aroma is red wine, wood, acidity, alcohol, hints of caramel. Pours hazy reddish dark brown with small light tan head. The head disappears quickly, but small white line remains. Taste is sweet, caramel, red wine, fruits in the background with noticeable alcohol and burnt bitterness. Finish is red wine sourness with nice alcohol burn. Overall: this is the best out of three La Trappe Quadrupels (batch 11 and the regular being the others) I have got my hands on. This one tastes really good.

Scopey (6317) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Josh. It pours hazy mahogany brown with a small beige head. The nose is earth, wood, coconut, vanilla, juicy, toffee and toasted sugar. The taste is wood, earth, coconut, vanilla, toffee, cherry, blackcurrant, toast, light warmth, dried fruit, fruit cake, toast and earth with a dry, warming finish. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Good depth. Smooth, well-balanced and really rather tasty.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle split at CBC thanks to J-Dog, 05/12/13. Hazed dark amber with a moderate beige covering. Nose is oaky boozed up woodness, caramel, vanilla, toffee fudge. Taste comprises toffee fudge, lick’o’booze, brown sugars, dark stewed fruits, oaky wood notes, light coconut shavings. Full bodied, fine carbonation, dry closure with a touch of booze. Nice quad, fairly mellow for the style and not too hot.

Leighton (10540) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell in London - many thanks to Josh. Pours lightly hazy amber with a delicate, white cream head. Rich beer, lots of bready malts, banana, big sweetness. Surprisingly mellow alcohol, which was nice. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with rich bread, toffee, ripe and bruised bananas. Powerful. Very tasty.
