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%

[ As La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged Batch #13 ].
[ Trade by Benzai ]. Clear medium to dark amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly to fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, oak - wood, fruity, alcohol. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet with a long duration, dried fruit, oak, malt. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. IMO: Quit simple and not as smooth and easy going as f.ex the #12 .. [20140405]

Very hazy deep amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry with mild fine carbonation. Light and sweetish malts. A little vanilla oak. Bubblegum esters - slightly spicy. Trace of Port wine and Dessert wine and even a little Sherry. Mild spice before a light dry finish. Tasty if a tad dry.

Leighton (16286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2015 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. (December 2013, score: 3.9)

Bottle shared at chriso’s Easter 2015 tasting - London. Pours clear amber with a frothy off-white head. Big toffee aroma, rich fruits, caramel, bread. Heavy sweet flavor with stewed apples, toffee, alcohol, bread and fruitcake. Full bodied, oily and lightly chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish with more ripe apples, caramel. Pretty drinkable given its girth. (April 2015, score: 3.8)
