sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2011
Draft @ Delirium Monestarium, Brussels. 15cl LaTrappe chalice. Orangée, brumeuse, col beige, fin et crémeux. Arôme est phénoménal avec des notes de fruits et de chênes somptueuses. Bois est bien placé ace des légères notes de tanins et sucre candi. En bouche, bière avec belle balance. Note de chêne et de bois qui ressortent bien. Malt bien en avant avec un caramel sucré et en retrait note biscuité. Fruits noirs donnant à la fois une impression de pomme caramel, avec raisins, prunes, note de sucre candi. Une bière somptueuse sous tous les points, et à 10% reste d’un pure plaisir à déguster.

haukur (1201) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 17, 2011
I was not expecting much. I love the orginal, and know it quite well, having sampled it at various age, but this is something different. Very woody aroma, same thing when taking a sniff of a good Chablis, same oak. Some wine grapes. Looks like a regular quad, coppar dark brown with a small head. Taste is complex, the maltiness of the original is gone, but instead I have a very complex taste of raisins, toast, some chardonnay acidness. I first though I had some whiskey notes but that is that oakey alcahol burn. This is incredible, well worth the price tag. 12 $ in Reykjavik.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 12 cl tap at Arendsnest, Amsterdam 12/09/2011. Pours hazy, burnished copper with a medium, slightly yellowish-brown head. Aroma is white winely acidic, white currant, oak, sherry-like. Taste is raisin, prune, reminiscent of sherry or port wine, sweet. Alcohol comes through a bit as a warming sensation. Palate is full and a bit sticky. Very nice.

jerohen (1962) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2011
On draft at In de Wildeman, Amsterdam. Dark brown colored, small head. Very powerful aroma, definitely aged, fermented dark fruit, alcohol, caramel malts, raisins, nice! Very complex flavor, predominantly fruity, raisins agains, white wine is becoming more apparent towards the finish. I’m generally not really into white wine except for the oak-aged ones, and that’s exactly what this tastes like. Another very good oak-aged Quadrupel.
