COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Batch 11 Malbec barrels were used, though a rather large portion of Quadrupel aged on new wood has been added too. This batch is quite complex. The aroma of the Malbec is very noticable, lots of oak flavours from medium toast, and vanilla and almond from high toast barrels, floral aromas from Acasia and obviously the beer aromas from the quadrupel. Very robust and rich in tannins, which warrants a bit of extra maturation in the bottle to let the complexity increase and the flavour become rounder. While the red wine influence is noticable, the wood has the dominant note. A must for everyone who likes heavy beer and/or wine with lots of wood flavour and aroma. 55% Used Malbec barrels 20% New French oak, medium toast 20% New French oak, high toast 5% Acacia wood

BlackHaddock (7696) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2017
Usual 37.5 cl cork and caged bottle: given to me by Rudy (De Bierboom, Brugge), I owe him some more beers, we exchange every time we meet, but he always out does me! This has been kept in a cool, dark place for a few years, so should be fine. Anyway I poured this beer into my huge Judas glass at home on 4th Nov 2017 and shared it with no body. Had to use a cork screw to get the plastic cork out. No head on the pour, everything went into the glass from the bottle, so the body has a hazy deep red body. Aroma is a breath taking collection of red wine esters, red berries and malty goodness, some woody barrel like notes too. The taste is awesome, woody, malty, port like and just so rich and smooth. I just love these beers no matter which 'batch' they are. Proper 'world class beers'.

Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Clear, dark brownish amber with some white bubbles on top. Sweetish-malty, minimally fruity aroma of caramel, vanilla, honey and some raisins. Moderately sweet, malty taste of caramel, vanilla, some honey, hints of raisins and some oak, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, moderately warming-alcoholic finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice!

caesar (7286) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2016
Bottle thx to jerohen, small sample. Hazy copper color, short frothy head. Loads of red wine, oak wood and raisin in aroma. Bit sweet in taste, raisiny, oak wood, red wine. Base beer is quite overwhelmed and the couple years of aging didnt make it any better. Best was to blend with a bit of fresh Quad, to give it more balance in the barrel and still get the spicy notes of a fresher Quad.

Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: No head. Hazy dark amber body. Nise of prunes, nuts, caramel, some malts, The flavour is again marked by a prune dominance. Some malts and bitters with light sweet tints... Low to no carbo, light watery mouthfeel, medium bodied. Easy drinker but don’t get any barrel aging!
