Batch 6, 375mL cork&cage bottle, split 4 ways. This poured a clear, slick amber color. No sediment poured out of this bottle. Minimal to no head. The beer was thin, alcoholic, and woody. Not extensively thin or boozy but not much of anything else. Not sweet, which was good but as usual the disappointing La Trappe Quad that sat in a barrel, which did not make the beer any better. Very forgettable if it wasn’t for the $16 price tag.

Aniela (2304) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle at Kulminator, Antwerp. Deep amber beer with a small white head. Woody, dark dried fruits, malty aroma. Wounderful sweetness, and malty fruity flavour. I truley love this kind of beer :-)

dcschiller (2203) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2011
(375ml bottle from Papago). Pours a hazy, cloudy dark amber/garnet color with tan head. Aroma has caramel, vinous notes and wood. Taste is sweet with more ripe grapes and syrup. Full bodied with a slick texture and wine-line finish with a touch of alcohol. Really nice.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Opens without a sound but pours with plenty of carbonation producing a fast head that rises and falls to a pancake that sticks. Smells of mineral, sweet malt and dried fruit. Full nectar with mild carbonation. A very malt forward brew with mild acidity. Sweetness on the tongue with nuances of dried fruit and butterscotch. The barrels are very noticeable creating a nice alternate to the usual quad.

Bottle, thanks Dave. Pours cloudy brown, with a fairly large tan head. Aroma is malt, wine, oak, fruit, and vanilla. Flavor is malt, fruit, wine, vanilla, and brown sugar. Body is medium to heavy.

PriorL (1527) - 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: little to no head, unstable, light amber beer. Nose: white wine, sugar, little lemon. Taste: white wine, sweet, little acidity. Very nice beer

Bottle at Monks. Darker and smoother than the regular quad. Heady aroma as well. When first poured looked surprisingly clear though there ended up being a fair amount of sediment in the second half of the bottle. Dark caramel raisins. Very rich but a barrel aged ruby added to the normal vanilla malt bomb. This version is more refined.

GMCC2181 (1498) - Newark, Delaware, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Cork and caged bottle via SL. Pours a muddy red brown color.. when I popped the cork barely any carbonation response... Poured aggresive, no head to speak of. Decent amount of sediment in the bottom. Smells nice though. Raisons, plums, other dark fruits. Malty, raw brown sugar, with some oaky notes. Taste even better. Malty, brown sugar, raison, plums. The oak taste has just the right amount. All blended well togther. Body is oily, slick smooth.... carbonation level is low but far from flat. The alcohol is not noticable but slightly warming. Enjoyed sipping on this beer. Overall: Nice BA quad

Hasonlít a másik testvérére, de ennek például van egy vékony habja is és kissé szebb a színe. Illatában itt jobban érezni a hordós érlelést, ráadásul édeskésebb és marcipános. Ízében is ott a marcipán, bourbon whisky, aszalt gyümik, zöld alma. Az egész olyan behízelgő és igen selymes, itatja magát és a végén kirúgja a lábad alólad! Érdekességképen megjegyezném, hogy a papíromra az volt írva, hogy ez egy "Wookie bitch sör". Erre Te emlékszel Sörmók?

Bottle. 12.7 oz. Split with and courtesy of Vinnie. Pours a deep, rosy red chestnut brown with a thin, wispy, frothy beige head. Lacing is spotty and arched, trailing down the glass. Aroma of honey, vanilla, oak, subtle sweet bourbon notes, caramel, dark grapes and figs, cinnamon, apple, and some insanely creamy, milky notes in the back. Full bodied with a bit of booze in it, but the palate, with its firm, yet supple, spicy, and crispy backbone holds it up well. Flavors of rum raisin, plums, candied sugars, vanilla, raisins, and some musty notes. Finishes with some bready, sugary booze burn. Holy fuck, this is an outstanding Quad. The oak and the beer have made a glorious love child. DRINK IT NOW.
