Cloudy dark red - brown beer. Small pale tan head. Palate is light and a little soft. Semi dry. Light sweet malt and wood. Estery floral notes and semi sweet tropical fruits. Mild malt cream before a dry finish. Unusual, although clearly of the La Trappe Oak Aged family, and tasty.

beerbastard (639) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Reddish brown pour with legs. Caramel rasin prune mix of aromas. Big flavors of sweet molasses dark fruits and candi sugar. Very rich with a nice smooth balance. Very little carbonation, not much barrel flavors and a high price. But its very good.

superspak (2212) - Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2013
375 ml bottle into chalice; Batch 6, April 2011 bottling. Pours hazy and cloudy dark reddish brown color with a small dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big raisin, prune, caramel, toffee, toast, oak, clove, molasses, light red wine, candi sugar, brown bread, vanilla, light chocolate, light peat, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with big complexity and balance of malt and fruity esters with moderate oak barrel presence. Taste of big raisin, prune, toffee, toast, caramel, molasses, clove, brown bread, oak, light wine, candi sugar, light peat, light chocolate, light vanilla, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of dark fruits, toffee, toast, caramel, molasses, brown bread, oak, clove, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of big malt flavors with moderate fruity/spicy esters; with moderate oak presence and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an incredible oak aged Quad! Tons of complexity and well balanced flavors; and quite smooth to sip on. Insanely enjoyable stuff; definitely worth enjoying again in the future, even for the high price of the bottle.

delnoche (440) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - APR 12, 2013
375ml bottle poured into a La Trappe chalice. Dark, cloudy amber with no head. Lots of floaties. Aroma is spice, cherry, oak. Lots of oak in the flavor with some cherry and a bit of alcohol burn. Very soft palate with little carbonation. Short cherry finish. Very nice sipping beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
