COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inmiddels hebben we vol trots BATCH 16 gepresenteerd. Deze Quadrupel Oak Aged heeft een diepe bronzen kleur met een schuimkraag als van amber. De geur wordt gedomineerd door een mengeling van hout en honing. Hierna volgen wijnachtige aroma’s, waarna een port/sherryachtige geur blijft hangen. De smaak is erg zacht en vol. Voor een Quadrupel is deze batch vrij droog en door de lange rijping op eiken- en accasia-barriques mooi afgerond. De lagertijd van 2 jaar is voldoende, hoewel deze batch door zijn volle smaak gegarandeerd nog jaren goed op dronk zal zijn als deze goed wordt bewaard. Naast de invloed van rode wijn- en brandyvaten kent deze Oak Aged ook Oloroso-invloeden. De hop is nauwelijks meer aanwezig, maar de tannines van hout en wijn zorgen voor een aangename bitterheid. Het verfijnde bouquet komt het best tot zijn recht als deze batch wordt geschonken op een temp. van 16-18°C. Batch 16 is sinds 22-03-2014 in de Kloosterwinkel te verkrijgen. Voor Batch 16 is de volgende verdeling van toepassing: Type In Batch Brandy 36,5% Oloroso 27% Nieuw Eiken Medium Toasted 10% Nieuw Eiken High Toasted 10% Late Bourgondy 10

vadie (1318) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2018
Couleur du cuivre foncer avec un grand col qui laisse les belles dentelles. L'arôme du sherry et fruits mûrs avec un peu de vanille. En bouche c'est sucré, mais bien équilibré avec les autres goûts.

DraftPours23 (1975) - FRANCE - SEP 6, 2018
Robe brune mate, très trouble, beaucoup de levure en suspension, assez fine. Aucune carbonation ni mousse. Nez semblable à de la sauce soja ! Légèrement salé, fruits secs, bois très présent. En bouche, le sucre est présent mais pas ultra dominant (comme l'alcool), assez subtil. Le bois se sent, et des notes de sherry tapissent le palais. Aucun houblon, mais une légère astringence. C'est étonnement doux pour la force annoncée. Très agréable et se boit plutôt bien, à tester au moins une fois, même si je n'en boirais pas tous les jours.

Light haze on this deep orange - amber beer, bubbly cream colour head that rapidly dissipates. Smooth palate, a little dry and with very modest fine carbonation. Nose of sherry with lesser sweet esters. Soft dry malts some mild tang and cream. Good sherry intermingles well with modest dried fruits and dessert wine fruits. Ripe citrus and citrus peel. Very mild alcohol spice. Finishes smooth with more caramel tang and a touch of red berries. Juicy and drinkable.

huineman (1030) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 23, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2019 Only three ratings so far this year, four if we count mine: looks like this one is slowly but steadily disappearing. I bought this bottle back in 2014 (May 8th to be precise) at the very De Koningshoeven Abbey shop, where I had driven to to spend the afternoon with my father. Nice day, indeed. The 375 ml bottle has been properly cellared for the last three years, and now finally open and poured into a La Trappe chalice (wasn’t actually sure about this point, whether a big snifter would have been a better choice or not, but finally went for the classic option.) Pours densely and slowly, intense maroon to reddish brown, losing all trace of head the very moment the ale touches the glass. Aroma is intense indeed, and it actually smells more like red dessert wine than trappist ale (and so are the looks, with that abscence of head or bubbles). Loads of scents: wild honey, molasses, big booze, ester-laden. Red berries, over-ripe banana, milk chocolate, dried figs, almond nougat... Complex, powerful and far from the other quadrupels (as I said, closer to LBV ports or Maury wines.) No remaining CO2 whatsoever. Powerful yet not harsh alcohol. Sweetish and umami as it develops in the tongue. No bitterness, be it from hops or cask tannins. Long-lasting, warm sweet’n’sour finish with reminiscences of home-made biscuits and dry strawberries.
