Benzai (7287) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2012
37,5cl bottle at Joes’ La Trappe Oak Aged Vertical, February 25 2012. Slightly hazy ruby red color with some small yeast residu floating in it. Small white head on top of the beer. Aroma is on the one hand pleasantly sweet but a little bit soft or faint, and on the other hand there’s some ’thinner/wasbenzine’ or something like that hiding in the background. A little odd. Taste is malts and sweet, a little alcoholic, lightly a sour hint. Smooth low to medium carbonation, but the alcohol seems more present than the original and O.A. Batch 1. Medium body.

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 19/20
jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2012
Bottled from the monastery, tasted side by side with a regular Quadrupel and Oak Aged batch #9. Ruby colored, small head. The port notes emerge immediately pouring it into the glass, very powerful, fruity, oak, combined with all the other features that are already in a normal Quadrupel, absolutely fantastic. Very complex yet smooth fruity flavor, oak, raisins, malts. Lasting fruity finish. By far the best Oak Aged i’ve had so far, immensely complex, yet very smooth and balanced. Please, make this version again!
