4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Eulogy in April 2013. Fantastic! Poured dark copper with no head. Great wine barrel aged notes. Has not turned. Deep and complex dark red fruits. Raisins. Dates. Nice dark caramel sweeetness but feels balanced. Heady aroma. Full body. For an aged beer with such dark fruit notes it still retains a nice bite. Again fantastic!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark brown with a khaki head. Aromas of dark fruit, brown sugar, yeast, oak, and touches of wine. Flavor is a perfect balance of all the aromas. The wine character is just wonderful but not overpowering. Rich and long lasting finish. Another great oak aged quad from la trappe. Every single one I’ve had has been delicious and every batch is so different. Delicious!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 375ml corked. A rather flat one, no head, and with a more or less clear, dark brown body. Some caramel in the aroma, with hints of oak, as well as alcohol, dried fruits and some vinous hints. A faint hint of chocolate and vanilla. The flavor has a nice sweetness, with dried fruits, caramel, alcohol and some choclate and vanilla. Full body, warming and soft on the palate. Lasting finish with caramel, some vanilla and quite a lot of vinous notes. Chocolate too. A quite pleasant one, but lacks a bit. 130510
