375 ml bottle @ Caf Ondineke in Aalst. Slightly hazy amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, vanilla, wood and a bit sharp alcoholic. Flavor is sweet maly, some caramel, dry fruit, spices, sweet and warm alcohol. Full body and a long and pleasant aftertaste. Not to much traces of oak but there is something here. I like this a lot.

Wolfbass (1128) - Firenze, ITALY - JUN 26, 2011
Nel trappistglass, ha un bel colore ambrato scuro con una schiuma che svanisce piano piano. Allinizio laroma che sprigiona magnifico, peccato che dopo alcune annusate, si disperda molto. In bocca davvero splendida, molto rotonda, liquorosa decisa e un bel finale asciutto.

Dedollewaitor (15737) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2011
Thanks ChrisV10. Bottle @ Odense Tasting, June 2011. Pours ruby amber with a creamy white head and lacings. Nose is candy, bubblegum, wood, yeast, coconut and vanilla. Subdued and a lot less dominated by alcohol and bubblegum than the regular quad. Smooth and full bodied with a low carbonation. Flavor is dominated by the barrels. Vanilla and red Wine. Warmth . .

12.7oz bottle poured into my Narke tulip... A dark copper pour with a hint of dark orange, can look brown at angles, very light for a quad. The head is a dark tope, decent retention but a little weak and watery compared to what Im use to. Ok lacing. Below average looking quad...The aroma is light dark fruits, tons of banana that is very weird, candi sugar, alcohol, and a hint of wood. Reminds me of a quad, but the banana is just weird, cant really tell that it was barrel aged. Doesnt smell bad, just not what I was expecting... The taste has a ton of the same notes as the nose, off quad flavors, but I think this tastes really good, super easy to drink. A ton of banana again, but adds a crushablness to the beer. Banana backbone, with alcohol, spice, and dark fruits. The oak is essentially missing again. This is pretty good but I cant recommend for the price, way to expensive, especially when you dont really taste a barrel aged quad.

Sampling at omhper. Small head and litle clowdy. Big yeasty aroma with some solvents like ethyl acetate and caramell. The caramell is also present int the sweet taste but is well balanced by a good bitterness.
