Batch 24 presents itself with the normal amber brown color of the Quadrupel and has a relatively fragile head. In the enter cherries do smell right away and the equation on with lots of sweet ripe fruit. Besides cherries hints of mango, banana and strawberry come upwards. Also the smells of almond and vanilla are recognizable as that of alcohol, caramelmout and oak wood. The palate is full to even bombastic, warming and challenging and is dominated by cherry. Then come the flavors of vanilla and caramel-sweet and ends in a dry tannin bitter alcoholic aftertaste. The ’cherry-touch’ fills the Quadrupel-taste fine, making clear this batch is clearly different from all previous 23 batches. This particular components make batch 24 to a must for the enthusiast. Its fine bouquet is best savoured when this batch is served at a temperature of 16-18 °C (61 – 64.5 °F). BATCH 24 was distributed as follows: Used barrels Kirsch-schnapps 85% New Oak Medium Toast 10% Acacia wood 5%

Rask0lnikov (1682) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 5, 2018
Sample from 375ml bottle. Pours amber colour with thin white line of froth on top. Duchessse, caramel from the doppelbock, notes of banana, bit acetony, caramelly sweetness, plums in the aroma. Caramel, dark fruits, notes of some berries, hints of some alcochol. Caramelly, bit sweet finish. Rather heavy bodied, quite complex brew.

26/VIII/17 - 37.5cl bottle @ RBBSG17 - BB: IV/2041 (2017-1338) Thanks to Benzai for sharing the bottle!

vinivini (3348) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 4, 2017
Bottle. Pours hazy bronze colour. Small fizzy head. Aroma: big oak barrel, vanilla, fruit esters, caramel. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Taste: rich malts, oak, vanilla, cherry, candy. Light bitterness. Not sure if barrel aging really benefits quads.

jerohen (2409) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2017
Bottled from HetBierMoment.nl. Brown colored, particles floating around, small beige head. Beautiful and powerful nose, original Quadrupel with lots of oak, vanilla, nutty, fruity, more grapes than Kirsch. Velvety mouthfeel, complex flavor, Quadrupel, vanilla, lots of oak, alcohol. I wouldn't have guessed Kirsch-schnapps, it tastes more like oak aged white wine. Another great Oak Aged Quadrupel.

77ships (11910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2017
Thank you for sharing Benzai! 375 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG17. Dark amber orange, little tanned head. Standard La Trappe OA appearance, taste is familiar grounds, oily sweet wine sugar, malt, oak, thick La Trappe oak, malt, sweet, caramel, toffee. Taste is sweet La Trappe OA cereal, sugar, caramel, malt candy, dark banana, sweet, candy. Thick caramel LA Trappe OA body. Another very lovely edition, honestly I did not pick up on the Kirsch-schnapps, could have been just as well pure oak for me I think.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2017 375ml bottle, from Pothouse, Tallinn (7:4:7:3:13)
Sweet buttery bananaey malty aroma, some cherry fruitiness. Full smooth palate. Sweet woody taste that gets oakier wih every sip. Love that finish, but the sweet booze bomb that dropped it left quite a mushroom cloud.
