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%

PotjeBier (1748) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Nice clear brown color. Off white head, short retention. Aroma’s: sweet malts, fruit, candies, fresh wood, vinous. Retronasal there’s a bit more sweetness, candies, alcohol, with clear wood notes. Flavor is moderate sweet, woody, hints of fruity sourness. Fairly strong alcohol feel. Medium bodied. Long finish, no new flavors, but wood stays throughout. The barrel aging really adds a lot to the base-beer (of which I’m not a huge fan).

Bottled. Pours clear, amber with a medium sized, off-white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, citrus, vanilla, wood and yeaty notes. Sweet flavor that end up more dry with alcohol notes. Medium to full bodied, oilt texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Quad.

Fspirit (45) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 21, 2014
Almost no head at all. Looks very alive though. Wonderfull aroma of wine and sugary fruit, really gets you interested of the taste. Taste is actually not the same as what you get from the aroma. I get allot of plum and sugary dried fruits, blended with hints of salt and malt. Recomended.

thanatosti (938) - 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.
