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’.

Bottle. Murky brown color with beige head. Aroma of alcohol, vanilla, honey and wood. Flavor is intense and warming. Tones of sweet fruit and also something sour.

caesar (6170) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Bottled, BB 10-2038, large sample. Slight hazy copper color, short frothy head. Aroma of spicy regular quad, with caramel and flowery notes, but now also with some almond, extra raisin and sweet sherry. Bit oak wood as well, quite complex. Quite sweet in taste, bit sour and sherry liqour note, some licorice bitterness. Flavors are quite nice, but do not seem to blend with aroma perfectly. Also, there is a slight alcohol burn, but not too annoying. Decent blend, where aroma trumps flavor.

thewolf (11728) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle, bought @Beershoppen, Kolding. Pours clear chestnut amber with a small creamy off-white head that soon disappears. Aroma is sweet, caramel, oranges, oak, vanilla, red wine. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, fat maltiness, vinious, apples, red wine. A slight peppery burn at the end. Nice one.

drpimento (2769) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2015
I should’ve included in the photo the stopper: the in the bottle part was about 1.25-1.35" long; very good seal. But the beer was a bit on the flat side. Better carbonation would’ve helped. A bit on the bland side. Can pick up the oak, some fruit, malt, yeast, but all are muted with the low carbonation.

375ml bottle at home. Clear burgundy with a small white head. Medium to full body with low carbonation. Quite sweet with subtle bitter tones. Caramel, vanilla, ripe fruits, raisins, nuts, alcohol, banana, malts and yeast. Full flavoured BA brew.

OnlyRogueAngel (42) - Heerlen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2015
Pours a rich but clear dark red, smells of alcohol, with hints of vanilla. Tastes sharply of the sherry barrels it was aged in, with dark fruits, bitter almond, caramel, oak wood and a nutty undertone. It leaves a bitter fruity almond aftertaste.

FatPhil (12181) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 30, 2015
375ml bottle - shared by Chris, beer quiz champ!
Initially a banana aroma, then nail varnish, but then a sweet berry, some cherry, but more raspberry. Taste brings forth the raisins, and softens to be pure sherry after a while. There is some alcohol heat in the mouth when swallowing. However it’s a lightish palate in comparison to the ABV. Delicious sipper.
