Una cerveza para disfrutar a tragos cortos y sin más distracciones. Se nota mucho el punto de alcohol.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, courtesy of myself... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a deep red with a smallish head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma offers plenty of toffee & brandy. It’s got lots of oak & fig, some big booze notes & some vanilla.
The flavor is plenty boozy, but not unpleasantly so. It’s got a nice sweetness with some rich flavors of plum, pear, caramel, and vanilla to match. The oak is pretty darned pronounced here, but it’s also quite rich... which is to say that at no point does the beer come across as annoyingly woody. It’s defiantly got a really well integrated presence of cognac as well.
Really very good, sometimes I forgot how great a well done Quad can be.

35.5cl bootle. Served rather cold. Due this - it does not feel like quad, but rather perfect barley wine with extra slick body. Superb beer. Does cost a lot, but it is worth to get it on yout list.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
#300. Bottle, 375mL. Home. Compared with La Trappe Quadrupel. A dark brown beer with light hues at the bottom of my glass. Medium off-white head, medium retention head. Complex aroma of grape (like in Muscat wine), fig, walnut, caramel, alcohol. Medium sweet (sugary < alcohol). Very round. Great presence. Full body, medium texture, average to soft carbonation, sweet caramel finish. Overall, a delicious beer (winy aroma) : great balance between elegance and power. Batch14 is darker, less powerful and more elegant. The "normal" one is much more like a standard good quadrupel (prune, banana, pear, roasty malt).
