COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BATCH 8 is blended in October 2011.
- Whisky pre used 71%
- New French Oak Medium Toast 28%
In flavour surely the most extreme La Trappe blend to date. Besides the full whisky flavour there is a lot of new oak in this blend, which makes this blend a unique marriage of wood-tannins and whisky associations.

bunget (769) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
375ml bottle aged for 2.5 years. A cloudy dirty dark copper body, minimal white foam. Aroma of old wine, whiskey barrel, yeast, fermented berries, wet basement and a light smokiness. Taste has a wow effect: caramel malt, yeast, subtle whiskey barrel, Scottish peat, whiskey, dried berries, noble red wine. Fabulous. And I’m not a quadrupel fan. PS Thank you Boystout for this wonderful gift!

bhensonb (13611) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 4, 2014
375 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Cork left with a light pop. Pours dark copper with a slight beige head. There’s a lot of whiskey in the aroma. Not sure it’s bourbon. It is. Med + body. Flavor has lots of smoke. Maybe it was scotch! Lots of treacle. It’s all very smooth and finishing less than dry. Had to be scotch!

bigguns22 (759) - Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2014
A dark amber to brown beer with thin off white head. Aroma and flavors of smoke and wood rule this beer. Big and full body with a lot of dark fruit flavor and a nice mix of bitter and sweet. Can’t forget to mention tobacco and earthy flavors.

Bottle. Poured a hazy brown color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark fruit, alcohol wood and dark sugar aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark alcohol sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout complex brew.
