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.

PriorL (1642) - 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.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - APR 13, 2012
Light brown with a small off White head. Aroma of Wood, vanilla, grapes, and the whitewhine barrel notes makes perfect sence, they are there along with the rest. Heavy toffee flavor, alchohol, lots of vinouse notes, again vanilla. Desert like finish with the previous notes lingering. Great

Abio (1550) - 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.

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.
