Bottled, thanks Pallieter85! Cloudy orange/brown, no head. Aroma of caramel and whisky. Sweet and full bodied with soft mouthfeel. Layer flavour of caramel and whisky, a bit vinous with quite some alcohol warmth in the finish. Intense and flavourful, yet relaxed.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red-amber color; In the nose: caramel, sherry/madeira touches, makes me think of a barrel aged Burgundt Pinot Noir type of wine. The wood flavour comes back in the mouth as well, giving the traditional quadrupel taste that extra "wow" feeling. Quite balanced; sweet in the beginning, dries out and becomes bitter after 3-4 seconds. Nice but expensive (>8€, about 9.5$ for a 37.5 cl bottle)

Pours a murky orange body. Small white head.
Obvious hints of wood, soft fruits, vanilla in the head. Taste is very smooth, definitely very different from regular quadrupel. Vanilla, dried fruit, caramel malts. Little bitterness, but very balanced.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, bought @ Brygshoppen.
Pours hazy redish amber with a great, creamy, off-white head. Fine light lacing. Aroma is sweet, vinious, light oak, mild milky, chocolate, a bit of plums and fat caramel. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and light oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, lots of fat caramel, tannins, vanilla, somewhat sharpish alcohol, plums, mild chocolate. Very delicious, even if it does have La Trappes usual alcoholic power to it.
