COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BATCH 26 (blended in November 2016) was distributed as follows: Dry white wine (Pouily Fumé & Sancerre) 78% New Oak Medium Toast 22% The aroma of Batch 26 is refreshing, floral and slight acidy (that comes from the white wine barrels). The characteristic aroma of vanilla and smoked oak is associated with cognac and in the background, a touch of malt and caramel scent. The taste can be describes as explosive in which the wood tannins dominate. The full-bodied taste of this batch pushed the La Trappe Quadrupel to the background, yet it is definitely present. In addition, you taste the dominant flavours of honey, sweet caramel and fine oak. The stimulating mouthfeel comes from the carbonation. Wood tannins also play a major role. In short, a batch with a full-bodied taste. A suitable autumn beer that still gives us a feel of summer due to its lovely scent associations.

alteregoo (1684) - Kalisz, POLAND - JUL 16, 2017
Piana średnio obfita, nieco mydlana. Barwa jasno miedziana, z pływającymi drobinkami. W zapachu na pierwszym planie nuty beczkowe - wanilia, migdał, parkiet, białe wino, winogrona, w tle figi, syrop klonowy, zioła. Smak dość słodki, rodzynkowo waniliowo pikantny z nutą białego wina, po ogrzaniu dochodzą kandyzowane owoce, karmel, miód. Nieduża, przyprawowo pestkowa goryczka, lekka cierpkość i taniczność, ładnie ułożony alkohol (lekko rozgrzewający). W odbiorze nieco wyklejające, pełne, treściwe, oleiste i jednocześnie wysoko wysycone, lekko musujące.
Już wersja podstawowa bardzo mi pasowała, tu zaś doznania są jeszcze intensywniejsze i szlachetniejsze, wzbogacone o przyjemne nuty barrel agingu.

nuplastikk (6421) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Tap at Arendsnest. Oak bomb. Really cool beer. Cuts through the Quad aspect a lot. Filtered, really almost thin somehow. Really great example of oak ageing. Super clean for the ABV.
