COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deze Oak Aged Batch 18 is qua basis een broertje van de Batch 17 en heeft een koperbruine kleur en een geurmengeling van moscatel aromas en Quadrupel.
Naast de duidelijke aanwezigheid van druiven zijn ook de smaken van dadel en vanille goed te herkennen.
Deze batch heeft een meer rooksmaak, omdat nieuw gebrand hout is gebruikt. Echter, de houttannines zijn minder aanwezig.
De aromas zijn hiermee zachter en romiger geworden, met als resultaat een complexe maar goed toegankelijke smaak.
Samenstelling: MOscatel (50%) en Brandy (16,7%), Oloroso (16,7%), Nieuw Eiken High Toast: (16,7%)

Leighton (20593) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Rene! Pours mostly clear amber-gold with a creamy, tan head. Big butterscotch aroma, berries, toast, plums. Medium to heavy sweet flavour, with rich bready malts, fruitcake, more plums, toffee, butterscotch, minimal alcohol notes. Medium to full bodied, lightly chewy, with fine carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish, with lots more ripe plum, brown bread, fruitcake, vanilla, butterscotch, ripe berries. Extremely drinkable for its heft. Almost no alcohol presence. Awesome stuff.

Aroma:
Heavy aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, wood, vanilla, red fruit and red wine.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque red/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with no/a slight beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, wood, vanilla, red fruit and red wine.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Super sweet with loads of red fruit and even some wine shining through. The appearance misses a head, but looks great nonetheless.

wrlangin (224) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2016
375 ml bottle from slowbeer.com.au. Pours hazy brown with absolutely no head. Aroma is boozy and some slight sweetness. No carbonation left. The base quad was a staple of mine for about 18 months and I always enjoyed it. The barrel-aging compliments it well and adds a nice dimension. Pretty good, but I was disappointed by the beer being totally flat. That seems to be the trend on the Dutch barrel-aged beers as De Molen and Emelisse are the same in that regard. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foffern (1803) - Bod, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle at home. Two year old bottle. Has a clear deep mahogany colour with a small light beige head. Sweet aroma of caramel, brown sugar, dates, oak, liquor, cognac-like, hint of spices, heather and bubble gum. The flavour has more wood, alcohol, caramel, hassel nuts, raisins and red currants. A little dry in the end. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, full-bodied and a light bitterness. A very complex and rich ale. Sweet and well-balanced.
