Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2013
In the potluck of ageing, this one didn’t succeed, despite $27 US pricetag. Boozy aroma, taste, though still smooth mouthfeel. Not very drinkable. Proof that price and score does not necessarily correlate.

PriorL (1989) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 37.5cl bottle. Shared with Mathieu87. Tasting of the 12 first La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged variants, together with the original beer (La Trappe Quadrupel). Appearance: small unstable head, light amber beer. Nose: pleasant sweet scent, port. Taste: lots and lots of port, very sweet, some malts. nice beer, maybe a little to much port, but could be the aging process.

beastmaster (333) - Florida, USA - APR 6, 2013
Tan mudwater color. No head. Lots of sediments from aging. Over 2 1/2 years in bottle but still. Minimal bitter. White grape flavor with a boozy port background. Light flavored crisp. Delicious

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Really great beer. Pours a dark brown with a small head. More carbonation than batch #6 for sure. Aromas of brown sugar, oak, dried fruits, and port. The port is well integrated into the brew. So interesting. Very rich robust flavor and a smooth finish. 20 dollars a bottle so that’s a bit steep but you have to consider how much time and energy was put into this beer. In my opinion, worth the price, you get what you pay for. If you can find a bottle, it would be worth your time to try it.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2013
500 cL CC bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid muddy clay brownish with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is complex: oak, fruit, yeasty malt, and spice. Tastes very oaky, somewhat tart in the fruit dept., with notes of cognac, cobwebby esters, yeasty dusty malts. This one finishes dense and complex, and is delicious.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Random find on the shelves of Gator Beverage in Gainesville. Obvious age on the bottle, with the label worn a bit. Poured on 11-24-12, so been in the bottle for over 2 years. Pours very dark red with a bit of sediment. Larger head than I expected. Smells of lots of dark fruits: figs and plums galore. Candy brown sugar as well. Some oak and definite wine presence from the port. Flavor is outstanding, and very much like Rochefort 10. Complex black cherry, plums, grape, fig, yeast, candy sugar, port, with the perfect alcohol warmth. Sip and savor this one. Now I’ll have to track down the other versions! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
