COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
De geur is zacht met opvallende houtnotes. Bloemig en zoetig als bloesemhoning. Amandel en vanillegeur aanwezig en natuurlijk de normale Quadrupelgeur welke echter op de achtergrond blijft. De eerst dronk smaakt duidelijk naar zacht rode wijn gevolgd door hout, tannines en rook welke langzaam overgaan in een zachte honigzoetigheid. Naarmate het bier warmer wordt gedronken komt de eikensmaak meer naar voren en lijkt het bier tanninerijker te worden. Daardoor is deze batch voldoende bitter en blijft de houtsmaak op de achtergrond aanwezig. Deze Quadrupel is medium zoet en droger dan de gewone Quadrupel. ’Late burgundy vaten’ 91% Nieuw eiken (high toast) 4,5% Nieuw accasia (medium toast) 4,5%

Unclear brown color, no head. Sweet aromas of dried figs, raisins, candy sugar, oak, vanilla, prunes, cognac, alcohol and slight honey. Sweet taste with dried figs, oak, alcohol, vanilla, cognac, toffee and slight spices. A bit thin. Might be due to the lack of carbonation, probably beacuse of the age. Reminds me of a sweet, barrel aged barley wine.

Flaska ölcafet. Grumlig brun vätska utan skum. Djup och söt doft av torkad frukt och dessertvin. Konplex smak av russin, trä, plommon och äpple. Värmande munkänsla. Mycket låg kolsyrehalt. Något vattnig känsla i slutet

Flaska från Galatea, privatimport, nästan precis fyra år gammal. Mörkbrun, något murken vätska. Knappt en tillstymmelse till kolsyra. Kraftig upphällning och ändå inget skum. Söt doft och smak av övermogen frukt, blöt kartong, smörkola, stora smöriga inslag, fudge, bränt socker, madeira, portvin. Mognat väl smakmässigt och fatlagringen gör en markant skillnad mot den vanliga quaden. Dock saknar jag lite kropp, känns något uttunnad. Kanske nått sin peak.

Pfff... Get a bit tired of this vertical. They are not that old yet they all turn out to be prune juice. Some have just a tiny bit more barrel aged tones than others, but overall it’s all in the same street... Plastic cork doesnt age the beers well... This one has a little vanilla in the nose. The flavour is quite the same as the precious plastic cork batches... Color and attitude in the glass is the same as are mouthfeel, carbo and body... What a shame Koningshoeven!

RW80 (2714) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2015
37,5 cl bottle shared Appearance: Murky brown, with hardly a head. Aroma: Spices, cherry wood, oak, vanilla, port. Taste: Sweet, Port and wood and a lot of wood tones with some dark fruits.Problem is it’s a bit too sweet, causing a dominance over the further complex palate. First sip is really amazing, but the problem is that the sweetness overpowers a lot of it’s complexity in a bad way. . medium-full body, light syrupy texture, soft carbonation.
