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’.

ShivanDragon (1862) - 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 !

Theydon_Bois (10363) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, thanks to the Croydon Quad Pimp, 24/10/14. Murky chestnut brown with moderate beige spotting and edgework. Nose is dark toffee, coconut shavings, spice, light booze, dates, prunes. Taste comprises dark fruit rinds, spice, toffee fudge, candied sugars, woody barellings. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with lightly warming alcohol. Decent quad, nice blend of spice and bitterness to push up the drinkability, never cloys.

Bottle shared at Bruces. It pours murky deep brown with a tiny beige head and a few suspended particles. The nose is sweet sherry, wood, coconut, honey, nougat, toffee and dried fruits. The taste is smooth, date, raisin, prune, wood, coconut, warming alcohol, light vanilla, jam, sherry, cocoa, warming alcohol, earth and over-ripe banana with a dry, warming finish. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Rather nice. Taste doesn’t quite live up to nose, but tasty enough.

Ez betyár finom! Aki kedveli a hordó(k)ban érlelt söröket és a Trapista söröket, annak muszáj ezt is kóstolnia. Érdemes többször próbálni, mert van lényeges letérés az egyes fejtések között (más-más keverési arány, stb). Szép sör, kellemes bourbon zamatokkal.
