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.

Served in a corked bottle. Similar to the standard La Trappe Quadrupel, so I won’t go into tons of details. The normally complex flavors and aromas of the base beer are somewhat masked by the intense woodiness of the oak. Very smoky, earthy. Head was significantly stronger than I typically expect to see on a La Trappe Quadrupel - nearly two full fingers. Retreated at a moderate rate to leave minimal lacing on the glass chalice it was poured into. Islands of creamy foam remained for the entirety of the beer. Aroma and taste were dominated by the earthy and woody tones, as noted. Lots of dark dried fruit and coffee. On the palate it was quite creamy and coated the mouth. Had more of a boozy note to it, both in aroma and taste, that is sometimes better concealed in the non-oak-aged variant. Still a very solid beer and excellent example of the style, but this is one of the cases where I don’t feel the oak aging is much of an improvement. It’s certainly not worth the significant price increase compared to the phenomenal non-aged variant.

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2011
Kulminator - draft (normally for export to USA but Dirk got hold on most of the barrels). Darker amber coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small white head. Subtile herby and vanilla almond hinted aroma. Full light creamy palate. Finish is light herby and full malty. Subtile but complex. Very nice.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a cloudy deep amber with a small off-white head. Sweet oaky aroma, almost bourbony. Rich body, hardly any carbonation, a little sweet caramel and again heavy oak. Some alcohol comes through. This is quite delicious, lots of oak and not overly sticky sweet. 080512
