Bottle. 37,5 cl. Light unclear orange-reddish amber with a small off white head. Intense and sweet, slightly spicy aroma of overripe fruits, oak, concentrated caramel. Flavor is even more intense, sweet but not too sweet, toasted malty, over ripe fruity. Some alcohol cutting through. Nicely balanced.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2011
Dark brown coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a medium off white head. Yeasty banana fruity with some spicy hinted sweet malty aroma’s. Full light creamy tingling palate. Finish is roasted sweet bitter malty and creamy with a longer light yeasty fruity and alcoholic hinted taste. Ending is a very subtile burn of alcohol at the back of the throath. Creamy beer with some very subtile flavours.

PriorL (2818) - 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.

On tap at Arendsnest, Amsterdam.
Deep mahagony colored one with a small pffwhite head. Moderated aroma that opens whn the beer gets warmer. Green apples, tuttifrutti and a lot of fruits like fig and raisins, and some oak. Complex flavor, fruits again(green apples, raisins and tropical fruits), tarty character of thge oaks, bubblegum again because of the high abv. Delicious.
