COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oak Aged Quadrupel Batch #15 85% Oloroso 15% New Oak Aged for two years on Oloroso Sherr barrels. Deze Quadrupel Oak Aged is lange tijd (2 jaar) gelagerd in barriques van Oloroso sherry. De specifieke smaak hiervan is zeer herkenbaar, naast vanille, amandel, honingbloesem en karamel. De geur van dit bier is dan ook zeer complex. De smaak is rijk, rijp en stevig. Toch blijft ze zacht en romig en is deze batch misschien wel de zachtste die tot nu toe is verschenen. De smaakpapillen worden niet alleen geraakt door de ‘walnootachtige’ Oloroso. Met een weinige zurigheid van deze sherry voelt de alcohol warm aan. De eiken barriques hebben de bitterheid van deze Quadrupel iets getemperd en de invloeden van de Oloroso doen behouden. Deze Oak Aged is wat minder koolzuurhoudend, maar dit zorgt juist voor voldoende tinteling en geeft naast de rijke smaak een voller ‘mondgevoel’.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2015 A 13-as verzió után esetemben a 15-ös hordóérlelt változat következik, melyben a legmeghatározóbb illatjegyeket a fehérboros, pálinkás hangulatok közvetítik. Kinézet terén követi a nemesített Quadrupelek jellemvonásait, kisujjnyi habja bronzszínű testre telepszik. Száraz, fanyar illatjegyei komoly, fehérboros szerkezettel meglepett trappista karakter tükröződései; visszafogott, selymes szerkezete fás, vaníliás, karamelles hangulatokat tartogat, összetett jellege kifinomult trappista ital jellemvonásait idézi. Ideális szénsavassága megfelelő keretet biztosít a száraz fehérbor belga jellemvonásokkal átitatott hangulatának feltérképezéséhez, a hordóérlelés egyik legexkluzívabb eredményét izgalmas vonások színesítik az extravagáns összhatás kiváltása érdekében.

ShivanDragon (2010) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
donker amber met minimale witte kraag, aroma is werkelijk fantastisch enorm veel geuren komen snel danwel langzaam naar binnen, zoetig, hout, vanille, wijn, alcohol, amandel, banaan, honing en nog veel meer.. smaken zijn honingachtig, wijnzuurtje, alcohol, banaan, amandel, sherry, licht notig, vanille, hout, redelijk tot volle body, romig, lage co2, afdronk zoetig, maar over het algemeen wederom een fucking briljant aged bier van La Trappe !
