COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inmiddels hebben we vol trots BATCH 16 gepresenteerd. Deze Quadrupel Oak Aged heeft een diepe bronzen kleur met een schuimkraag als van amber. De geur wordt gedomineerd door een mengeling van hout en honing. Hierna volgen wijnachtige aroma’s, waarna een port/sherryachtige geur blijft hangen. De smaak is erg zacht en vol. Voor een Quadrupel is deze batch vrij droog en door de lange rijping op eiken- en accasia-barriques mooi afgerond. De lagertijd van 2 jaar is voldoende, hoewel deze batch door zijn volle smaak gegarandeerd nog jaren goed op dronk zal zijn als deze goed wordt bewaard. Naast de invloed van rode wijn- en brandyvaten kent deze Oak Aged ook Oloroso-invloeden. De hop is nauwelijks meer aanwezig, maar de tannines van hout en wijn zorgen voor een aangename bitterheid. Het verfijnde bouquet komt het best tot zijn recht als deze batch wordt geschonken op een temp. van 16-18°C. Batch 16 is sinds 22-03-2014 in de Kloosterwinkel te verkrijgen. Voor Batch 16 is de volgende verdeling van toepassing: Type In Batch Brandy 36,5% Oloroso 27% Nieuw Eiken Medium Toasted 10% Nieuw Eiken High Toasted 10% Late Bourgondy 10

Somehow the long artificial cork seems not to have kept its seal. Interesting, nice brew. Aroma has vanilla, caramel, red wine, oak. Flavor has the vanilla, caramel, a little bitter, tang, and salt. Soft carbonation. which is just enough. Very good finish.

375ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Orange, no head. Sweet fruity aroma, sherry, some apple, some apricot. Remarkably light palate. Sweetish, plenty of the barrels, raisin and apple, some light oak. Finish light, woody, some sweet pears. Late finish has some dry bitter tea-leafy hop. Not as full as the 17 and 19 I had recently, and I think I prefered them.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks Vipinvelp! Murky brown with a white-cream head. Vanilla, some clove, woodsy and sherry notes in the nose. Deap vinous taste. A little spicy, some coconut and sherry. Full body, fairly carbonated, long, sherry finish. Complex and fun.
