Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass darker than the other versions I had, small head. Starts strong-malty, modest sweet, hints of chewing gum. Also some fruity notes. Finish well balanced, less sweet, warming-malty. Good beer!

Borresteijn (4733) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2011
On tap at Beer Temple. Muddy dark amber, off white head. Aroma of oak, raisins, sweet malts, caramel, sweet fruits, alcohol, raspberry candy. Flavour is very sweet, pear, raspberry, raisin, light white wine, malts, loads of alcohol, some woody notes, light bitter finish. Medium bodied. Too sweet and one-dimensional imo.

jmgreenuk (4475) - 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.

ClubGonzo (4056) - 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.

77ships (4031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2012
375 ml bottle @ Kulminator // split between me & Man-ki// tasted along with batches # 3 & # 4 // from a tiny La Trappe tasting glass // 2011 Vintage // touch darker ruby amber than nr. 3 & 4, clear, head is interesting enough snow white as opposed to #3, #4 & Quercus #2 // sweet on the nose syrupy, hint of liquorish, plenty of dark fruits in this one, touch bitter // sweet syrupy, dark fruits going more towards dry & some canned ones as well, winter spices in the finish, toffee, vanilla, small touch wood, touch bitterness in the finish, that one is new, the wine?, otherwise not picking up distinct white wine or at least not what I would expect white wine to do // smooth, touch syrupy, carb. going closer to soft, out of the 3 prefered #3 & #4 but this is nice as well, grown accustomed to these

On tap at Beer Temple. Dark amber body with puffy tan head. Sweet, caramel nose, some fruits too. Nice sweet and tangy flavours. The white wine quite pronounced. Oaky. Very nice. Lovely.

sic1314 (3405) - 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.
