Leighton (14006) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Paul. Pours oily amber with very little head. Big malt nose, slight oxidation, hearty toffee, ripe fruits, berries, plums. Big sweet flavor with some puréed semi-dark fruits, prune, figs, plenty of toffee. Full bodied, chewy and soft. Warming finish, lightly sticky, lots more ripe and gooey fruits, some apple, caramel. Quite a nice sipper.

Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
[my 7,600th rating]
Pours hazy red-brown with a lovely, staying, creamy, yellowish head. Aroma has grapes, caramel, raisins, vinious, chocolate, figs and plums. Some oaky hints as well. Highish carbonation, light and mild creamy mouthfeel. Soft and velvety. Flavour is extremely delicious. Very balanced. White wine, oak, caramel, port, light chocolate, vinious. Balanced to almost perfection with pear, peach, grapes and lots of finishing dryness. By far the best of the oak-aged La Trappe Quads.
