4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

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.
