jerohen (2224) - Bussum, - FEB 26, 2012
Bottled from the monastery, tasted side by side with a regular Quadrupel and Oak Aged batch #9. Ruby colored, small head. The port notes emerge immediately pouring it into the glass, very powerful, fruity, oak, combined with all the other features that are already in a normal Quadrupel, absolutely fantastic. Very complex yet smooth fruity flavor, oak, raisins, malts. Lasting fruity finish. By far the best Oak Aged ive had so far, immensely complex, yet very smooth and balanced. Please, make this version again!

Faathoven (85) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - JAN 6, 2017
Pours amber, slight hazy with whitish head. Bunch of dark fruits in the aroma, dates, raisins, plums, figs, plus red wine, soaked oak, belgian yeast characteristics from the fruity esters and kinda mead notes. Very complex flavour that is just the same of the nose. In the back end I got some tannins bitterness which balances nicely, and a slightly dry finish asking for another sip. Smooth, medium to full body and almost an oily texture mouthfeel. This is huge!

Moderately sweet, malty taste of caramel, honey, lots of vanilla and some raisins, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, moderately warming finish.
