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’.

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.
