4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours an exquisite and hazy deep amber. Not much head, but a good amount of lacing. Smells of grapes, oak, and caramel. Then, there’s the taste. Sweet malt, a nudge of bitter hops, then a familiar unctuous feel and flavor that reveals the oak aging. Full, creamy, round mouthfeel without being heavy. The 10% ABV warms on the way down, but doesn’t overpower any of the magnificent flavors. Unsurprisingly, it becomes more complex and the flavors bolder as it warms.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 375ml corked. An unclear, dark amber to brown beer with a small, light beige head leaving some lacings. The alcohol punches you in the nose, in a pleasant way though, followed by vanilla, raisins, some spice notes and a touch of anise. Caramel too. The flavor has lots of alcohol, with dried fruits, caramel and some spice hints. Really long finish. Warming, full-bodied and smooth as hell on the palate. Even though this beer is too alcoholic, it’s really lovely. The alcohol sort of fits in the picture with all the other good thins found in the beer. 110430

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 ml bottle @ Café Ondineke in Aalst. Slightly hazy amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, vanilla, wood and a bit sharp alcoholic. Flavor is sweet maly, some caramel, dry fruit, spices, sweet and warm alcohol. Full body and a long and pleasant aftertaste. Not to much traces of oak but there is something here. I like this a lot.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nel trappistglass, ha un bel colore ambrato scuro con una schiuma che svanisce piano piano. All’inizio l’aroma che sprigiona è magnifico, peccato che dopo alcune annusate, si disperda molto. In bocca è davvero splendida, molto rotonda, liquorosa decisa e un bel finale asciutto.

Thanks ChrisV10. Bottle @ Odense Tasting, June 2011. Pours ruby amber with a creamy white head and lacings. Nose is candy, bubblegum, wood, yeast, coconut and vanilla. Subdued and a lot less dominated by alcohol and bubblegum than the regular quad. Smooth and full bodied with a low carbonation. Flavor is dominated by the barrels. Vanilla and red Wine. Warmth . .
