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%

Voor mij het beste bier wat ik tot nu toe gedronken heb, veel bijsmaken, vooral het eikenhout van de vaten proef je nadrukkelijk! Zeer zeker de moeite waard!!

Clear dark brown with light brown lacing foam head. Aroma is woody with flower notes. some vanilla and in this case also red wine . Taste is quite complex, some oak, some sweet. Aftertaste is long lasting and turning more bitter. (Velp 201307) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an average frothy light brown head that mostly diminishes. Body is clear and sparkling, with amber color. Aroma contains dark bread, roastedmalts, caramel, mild coffee, orange, lemon, dough, barnyard, banana, grape, raisin, plum, cherry, cassis, red wine, ruby port, cask wood, toffee, vanilla and spices. Flavor starts off light acidic with a little wine taste, to go to sweet and to finish with sweetness, light acidity, faint bitterness, and light astringent tannins from wine. Body os medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. A brilliant beer! Regular quadrupel flavors and aroma's, red wine, oak, it's all on there and it's all in balance.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 The scent of this beer is intense and enchanting. This is a beer you want to keep smelling. Flowers, vanilla and tones of wood stroking your nose. The first sip goes from beer to wine and back again. Light bitter tones walks along. Evaluates during his stay in the glass and continues to enchant you. Sweet and warm aftertaste.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2013
375ml bottle up at the monastery. Pours a lightly hazed, red colored body with a slight orange and amber hue. Inch thick, dense, creamy and frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is pretty woody with a nice, vinous port wine element. Bready caramel malts provide a solid balance with a medium sweetness. Some tannins and a slight bourbon note in there as well alongside some dark fruits and more vanilla as this warms. Flavor is similar. Vanilla and wood up front with a sturdy, bready caramel malt backing and plenty of vinous red wine notes. Dark fruits, a light bourbon, and a nice toast towards the end before this finishes dry and woody with lots of vanilla and caramel. Lengthy aftertaste with a slight alcohol heat following a smooth, fairly full body and a soft, moderately active carbonation. Overall, a pretty special quad. Lots of red wine barrel notes with a good amount of vanilla, but very well balanced by the malts and dark fruits. Extremely enjoyable while sitting in the monastery on a sunny day. Great beer.

375 ml. bottle shared with Kraddel & rest of the group. Dark fox / copper amber with a tanned head. Nose is wonderful, sweet banana, vanilla, slight pancake syrup, sweet spices, oak, flowers,… Taste is once again surprisingly sweet banana upfront, almost like some kind of awesome hefe, vanilla, flowers, slight pancake syrup, sweet spices, oak, light bitter oak in the back & finish is red wine, sweet caramel, dark fruits,… Carb. is slightly sparkling. Slightly creamy – a great one – esp. after some lesser variations.

Thanks to MrHangover for this bomb of a beer -wow! It pours out of the bottle in a cloudy brown colour with low head and medium to smooth body. The nose is the most perfect one ever. The nose makes you feel like at a light cold autumn evening in front of the open fire place. Vanilla, oak, gentle whiskey. Taste is just perfect as well, it is like drinking whiskey liqueur. Exactly same taste but with a smoother body and far less ABV: Oak, vanilla, torf, bourbon, light malt, caramel and straw. Very nice and smooth to drink, a absolutly great and very taste beer. Enjoyed it a lot! Would like to have another one of this waiting for me.
