Cloudy light brown pour, what little head appeared disappeared quickly. Light aroma of caramel and general fruitiness. Good flavor of raisin, honey, oak, and caramel, reminding me of a sweet bourbon (actually, it also reminds me of Redbreast Irish whiskey, but I think that’s mostly the lingering touch of alcohol and sweetness after the taste, and its definitely sweeter than the whiskey). The oak tones down the sweetness and prevents it from being too cloying. I like this, there is quite a bit going on.

13-02-12 Bouteille: Brune, légèrement trouble avec de nombreuses particules en suspension. Sans effervescence et mince collet de bousse blanche-beige. Délicieux arômes de coconut, de caramel, avec une touche de vanille et de boisé. Moyennement sucré, légère amertume, petite note surette, boisé, coconut-vanille. Corps moyen texture légèrement ronde, avec une touche de moelleux et tout de meme asser pétillante. Bonne carbonisation et finale asser alcoolisé avec un bon punch de surette. Très différente de la normale et de la plupart des oak aged beers.

Outstanding. Aroma of vanilla, oak, caramel and brown sugar. Chestnut, medium color with some light sediment. Taste is oaky with caramel, vanilla, chest warming alcohol and, and single malt scotch characteristics. Very complex, excellent tasting beer. Also less carbonated than the similar Belgian beers.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2011
12/21/11. 12.7oz corked and caged bottle. Tasted side by side with the regular quad. Hazy brown pour with a nice khaki head that sticks forever. The pour is very slightly darker than the regular. Sweet aroma of brown sugar, cream, vanilla, and butterscotch... the oak definitely shows compared to the original. Sweet flavor of brown sugar, dark fruits, burnt sugar, vanilla, and cream. Again, the oak definitely shows. Very nice!
