375 c&c from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours brown with a few bubbles. Aoma of peat, dark malt and oak. Full bodied. Flavor is fruity, very little carbonation, dusty oak and lots of peat. The scotch aspects are rather mellow. But strong. Goes well with Stinking Bishop. And with Chimay Grand Cru.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7 oz. bottle picked up at Party Source from notes. Pours a hazy deep copper color with a medium sized creamy off white head. The nose has big ripe fruits, raisins, fig, caramel, brown sugar, oak, scotch whiskey notes are noticeable with wood and peat, and a touch of the alcohol. The flavor is more fruits, raisins, fig, caramel, oak, scotch whiskey, peat and boozy alcohol. There is some burn to the mouth feel that grabs my attention, but I like this entire series.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
375 ml bottle at home. Pours cloudy dark copper amber with no head, no carbonation. Deep nutty and toffee alike aromas, little bit of wet cardboard as well, alcohol already coming through... Medium body, flat as can be, a tad watery, taste is bland, like whisky with lots of water, little smoke at the end. Expected it to hold a bit up longer (3 years old).

Bottle, shared by Ferris. Dark reddish amber with literally no head. Cooked peaches, caramel and faint peat. Barely any detectable peat here, and just a ghost of a quad.

12.7 ounce bottle poured into a La Trappe chalice. Pours a murky brown witha thin whisp of a beige head of foam. The aroma is peaty, woody, boozy, and has nuances of dark ripe fruits. The taste is boozy and sweet. Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged Batch #7) Bottle 375 ml, corked and caged poured into a small goblet at home. ABV 10%
Amber brown colour on the body, some bubbles on the surface that disappear quickly, of course no use talking of retention or lacing on the glass.
Aroma is of vanilla, alcohol, wood, whiskey.
Taste also of wood, ash, some coal, caramel, whiskey, vanilla but lighter than the aroma.
Medium thin body, low and watery carbonation.
Overall a good batch but it misses that "wow, what a beer!" feeling of other batches. Maybe the weakest one I’ve tried.
