Oak Aged Quadrupel
Batch #14
75% Cognac Barrel
7% New Acacia
11% New Oak
The aroma is dominated by cognac, with hints of flowers, prunes, grapes almond and vanilla. On the palate, warmth and the grape fruitiness of cognac. The finish is oaky, malty and, finally, speaks of grape. A beautiful marriage of Quad and Cognac from start to finish.

Bue en bouteille de 37,5cl. Produit exceptionnel ! Couleur brun foncé, peu de mousse, peu d’effervescence. Equilibre parfait, produit complexe qui mêle malts et alcool. Finale sur le boisé. Génial !

freretoc (625) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 4, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl, couleur marron peu de mousses et peu d’effervescence, une bière incroyable avec un goût très marqué sur le grillé et le caramélisé mais en plus l’attaque sur les acides du fûts et de la vanille rends l’ensemble complexe et équilibré en bouche.

RexTalionis (2402) - FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours unclear mahogny in color with a slightly tan head. Notes of cognac comes forward at one instantly as one opens the bottle. There’s also some ripe dark fruity notes mixed with oak present aromawise. Soft mouthfeel. Ripe raisins and plums in taste. Dry finish with a bit of vinous notes in aftertaste. I do like the smooth and soft approach in this brew.

(Bottle, 0.375 l, from Alko Arkadia, 20140621) The beer poured ruby port coloured and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had cognac, wood, vineousness, vanilla and caramel. Palate was medium bodied and warming with low carbonation. Flavours were wood, vineousness, vanilla, cognac, malts, sweetness, dried plums and low bitterness. Aftertaste had wood, cognac, sweetness and bitterness. A nice combination of wood, the alcohol soaked into the wood and the beer. Perhaps the beer could have been more forward. The sweetness wasn’t excessive which was pleasant.

Migmar (248) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Brown, quite transparent, medium head. Plums, raisins, wood, vanilla. Definitely cognac-y. Alcohol comes through quite clearly. Medium sweetness. Interesting hybrid of beer and cognac, but I personally prefer the plain quadrupel.
