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%

Samuel214 (820) - SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2017
Flaska frn Galatea, privatimport, nstan precis fyra r gammal. Mrkbrun, ngot murken vtska. Knappt en tillstymmelse till kolsyra. Kraftig upphllning och nd inget skum. St doft och smak av vermogen frukt, blt kartong, smrkola, stora smriga inslag, fudge, brnt socker, madeira, portvin. Mognat vl smakmssigt och fatlagringen gr en markant skillnad mot den vanliga quaden. Dock saknar jag lite kropp, knns ngot uttunnad. Kanske ntt sin peak.

Countbeer (6336) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2016
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 its 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!

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 its 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 its complexity in a bad way. . medium-full body, light syrupy texture, soft carbonation.

Deguste 28 mois aprs lembouteillage. Robe brune ambre, beaucoup de petites particules en suspension. Col de mousse subtil et leger. Armes de bois de chne intense, vanille, sucre dorge, figues, dattes. Le nez est doux et invitant, aucune trace dalcool. Cest un peu comme humer un bon rhum g et bois. En bouche, tout aussi sublime. Un liquide de sucre doux enrob de chne. Les armes sont encore l. Beaucoup de vanille, dattes, figues, raisin, cassonade. La douce essence du bois, qui ne nous quitte pas, me donne limpression de boire mme le baril de chne. Les tanins du bourgogne sont subtils, mis part un lgre astringeance. On sent le ct plus amer de la Quad originale en milieu de gorge, qui sagence par la suite au chne et vanille pour crer un longue finale qui estompe lentement. Texture modre et rondeur incroyable. De fines bulles viennent rehausser le plaisir de boire ce breuvage dune douceur dconcertante.

Purchased from De Molen bottleshop, Bodegraven NL. Pours with very little head, minimal lacing. It's about 2-3 years old by this stage. The immediate aroma upon opening the bottle was Christmas spice; think strong sherry cask and spicy winter fruits. In the glass more cherry wood and oak vanilla scents come through. A lot of port and sherry wood, with honey blossom sweetness. Mouth starts with an early onslaught of dark, red wine-soaked cherry. There is a still a strong interplay of delicate honey sweetness. Fresh forest fruits and sweet wines. A kick in the aftertaste; smooth chocolate liqueurs. Very complex. The mouthfeel is one of its greatest assets. The smoothness carries the sweetness and barrel notes perfectly, whilst the aftertaste comes with a more syrupy wine texture. La Trappe quadruple is already very delicate, but this is improved immeasurably. Some barrel aged beers are a bit overrated, and La Trappe can be easy to overlook, but this is unmissable. Up there with the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
