Split together with Belgbeergeek, Beerdrifter & Thirstybird // 2010 Vintage // tasted after once again Quercus #2 & the magnificent O.A. #1 // darker than # 1, dark copper red with a small white head // smells of sweet vanilla oak, lots of oak, candy, berries, spices and toffee // sweet malts, candy, dried fruits, sweet dark fruits, light bitter touch, vanilla oak, lots of toffee, caramel, lots of sweet vanilla oak, touch of hops, tad rawer than the incredibly smooth #1 // very smooth, light sparkling, damn good even if I prefer #1 over this one

Habanero (2862) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2012
Bottled. Pours clear, amber with a medium sized, off-white lasting head with fair lacing. Nose of fruit, caramel and yeaty notes. Sweet flavor of apples, grapes, oranges and caramel. Medium to full bodied, oilt texture and soft carbonation. Ends up more dry with an alcohol touch.

Benzai (9350) - 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.

jerohen (2046) - 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!

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2012
A little hazy, light brown, no head. The aroma of a little oak with tonsel and porto notes. The taste of sweet with wood, a little tonsel with porto notes. The aftertaste a little wood with sweet notes. In comparison with batch 1 everything a little less.

TBone (13225) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottled 375ml (BZ, bat ch2)
Opened as the last bottle of 2011. Hazy ruby color, small off-white head. Oak, raisins and vanilla in the nose. Medium-bodied. Lots of vanilla, plums, raisins and strong wood-oak-cellar presence. Does not feel like 10 %. Slight letdown from the normal La Trappe Qr.

Yves (2408) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2011
Brown coloured beer with small white head and no carbonation visible. Strong liquor (port) aroma. Full creamy palate. Finish is liquor port with roasted bitter ending. Very nice!

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2011
Last bottle found @ Willems. Brown coloured beer with some very light carbonation and a small off white head. Very clear alcoholic and fruity hinted aroma (hints of green apples and calvados) not so much port. Full palate. Finish is full malty herby and light alcoholic yeasty with a fruity ending. Very nice brew.

Floral aroma, dates and figs?, poured a nice cloudy brown with frothy head. Taste starts with the port feeling slowly followed by the bitters of the beer. Liked it.
