jmgreenuk (4082) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2014
Tap at the Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a dark amber with a thin white broken head. The aroma is caramel, vinous oak. The flavour is moderate sweet light bitter with a smooth creamy toffee caramel vinous palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. A super beer. One of the best La Trappe Quads I’ve had.

Abio (1551) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2013
Wood at the taste for sure, slightly spiced and boozed. Slightly aged bottle, this will affect it a bit probably. Dark amber couloured brew that looks like brown in the glass. A nice, mostly sweet, beer, not bad at all.

sic1314 (3103) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2013
Poured a murky reddish brown with minimal white head. Aroma of sweet vinous fruit with an overtone of the wood. Medium body, flavour of caramel malt and the fruit (plum, berries) with a dryness from the barrel.

PriorL (1643) - 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: somewhat darker than the previous 4, small unstable head. Nose: very sweet, vinous, fruity. Taste: nice sweetness, hints of lemon (little acidity), mostly white wine. Very nice beer.

gEUS (1001) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2013
375 ml bottle - pours deep marroon brown, no head. Aroma of nuts, a bit oxydised (1 year 8 months in cellar), a bit burbouny (?), monbazillac notes, earthy. Medium body, watery with no depth, one-sided. Taste of ashes and nuts, plums and dates. All in all average.

ClubGonzo (3936) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep nougat brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma is intense caramelly butterscotch tones, vanilla, oak, dense malty tones and hints of booze. Taste is raisins, wood, honey, intense caramel, vanilla, hints of cognac, booze, toffee and traces of nuts. Solid stuff. Full body, medium carbonation. A very nice and dense quad on the sweet side of things.

Geiserich (3302) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle: Off-white creamy head, amber hazy color. Oaky aroma, notes of grapes, smoke, whiskey, brandy, caramel, sugar. Flavor has also a lot of whiskey/brandy notes, barrels, sugar, wine. Dyr, astringent finish. Nice.

MaartenRF10 (1566) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2012
Thanks Benzai for trading this one! Great beer! Appearance is not the best, but as expected, clear dark reddish brown, small head, fading quickly to nothing. The aroma is wonderful, wood, vanilla. Taste is great as well, like aroma. Carbonation is good, body ok, but might have been fuller.
