Oak Aged Quadrupel Batch #15 85% Oloroso 15% New Oak Aged for two years on Oloroso Sherr barrels. Deze Quadrupel Oak Aged is lange tijd (2 jaar) gelagerd in barriques van Oloroso sherry. De specifieke smaak hiervan is zeer herkenbaar, naast vanille, amandel, honingbloesem en karamel. De geur van dit bier is dan ook zeer complex. De smaak is rijk, rijp en stevig. Toch blijft ze zacht en romig en is deze batch misschien wel de zachtste die tot nu toe is verschenen. De smaakpapillen worden niet alleen geraakt door de walnootachtige Oloroso. Met een weinige zurigheid van deze sherry voelt de alcohol warm aan. De eiken barriques hebben de bitterheid van deze Quadrupel iets getemperd en de invloeden van de Oloroso doen behouden. Deze Oak Aged is wat minder koolzuurhoudend, maar dit zorgt juist voor voldoende tinteling en geeft naast de rijke smaak een voller mondgevoel.

Clear deep red - amber beer, bubbly pale cream colour head. Smooth palate, reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth and sweetish malts, mild caramel. Light spice and spicy esters. Nicely integrated sherry provides the backbone of the flavour. A little dried fruits and mild wood. Light dry spicy finish. The sherry becomes more intense as the beer approaches room temperature. Nice.

375ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Hazy chestnut color. Thin white head, stays (as strange as it might sound). Sweet, malty, plums, jammy and apple in aroma. Sweet, malty, some jamminess, apples, plums in taste. Sweet way too sweet. Plums and oak are nice. But raw.

caesar (7032) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Bottled, BB 10-2038, large sample. Slight hazy copper color, short frothy head. Aroma of spicy regular quad, with caramel and flowery notes, but now also with some almond, extra raisin and sweet sherry. Bit oak wood as well, quite complex. Quite sweet in taste, bit sour and sherry liqour note, some licorice bitterness. Flavors are quite nice, but do not seem to blend with aroma perfectly. Also, there is a slight alcohol burn, but not too annoying. Decent blend, where aroma trumps flavor.
