UPDATED: APR 26, 2013 Figs, bananas, wine and oak. Very deep and earthy as well as sweet. Definitely serve chilled which in general you wouldnt but I enjoyed it better this way

June 2011: Cork and caged 37.5cl bottle: Batch 3. Given to me, as a gift by Rudi from De Bierboom in Brugge, thanks Rudi. Poured into a Westvleteren chalice (and a Hoegaarden Grand Cru stemmed tulip, which got the sediment and bottle remains). Deep, dark brown/reddy coloured body, thin covering of off-white bubbles on top, clear without the sediment, the Hoegaarden glass held a different view. What an incredible aroma, spiced bananas in a liquorice flavoured custard. The taste is equally as incredible as the smell, port wine can be added to the thoughts from the aromas, this is a complex beer and I loved it. The beer excites the taste buds, loads to find and enjoy in the flavours: malty molasses, various fruits, more spices and herbs than you could shake a big stick at, Port wine and chocolate flavoured liquorice in abundance, a truly different beer. I dont normally like beers that have been messed around with, but the Oak Aged bit seems to work with this beer. Almost gave this beer straight 5s on BA: had to sit back and think about it, so easy to get carried away when a beer is this good!

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2012
What a treat! Looked just the same as the ol quad, maybe the head was less visible. With an aroma of brown sugar, yeast, raisins, molasses and jasmine it was certainly more complex. The carbonation was light and with a taste full of banana and yeast. Undertones of vanilla, oak and herbs were pleasant, but light for a quad. Not even a hint of alcohol was present and make this beer unusually session-able.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle @ Kulminator. Darker amber coloured beer with some light carbonation and an average off white head. Light fruity hinted aroma with some hints of grapes and white wine. Full creamy palate. Finish is strong, light alcoholic fruity with a light fruity toasty hint. Not bad.

Cloudy light brown pour, what little head appeared disappeared quickly. Light aroma of caramel and general fruitiness. Good flavor of raisin, honey, oak, and caramel, reminding me of a sweet bourbon (actually, it also reminds me of Redbreast Irish whiskey, but I think thats mostly the lingering touch of alcohol and sweetness after the taste, and its definitely sweeter than the whiskey). The oak tones down the sweetness and prevents it from being too cloying. I like this, there is quite a bit going on.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2012
A clear brown colored beer, with a small beige head. The aroma of tonsel with porto notes wood and fruits. The taste is fruity with tonsel some port notes. The aftertaste has some alcohol with slightly wood notes and sweet.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle with Carla. Pours a clear red/gold with minimal creamy foam. Smells of vanilla and chardonay wit hints of lemon. Tastes very complex with hints of oak, vanilla, caramel, raison and a twinge of alcohol.

13-02-12 Bouteille: Brune, lgrement trouble avec de nombreuses particules en suspension. Sans effervescence et mince collet de bousse blanche-beige. Dlicieux armes de coconut, de caramel, avec une touche de vanille et de bois. Moyennement sucr, lgre amertume, petite note surette, bois, coconut-vanille. Corps moyen texture lgrement ronde, avec une touche de moelleux et tout de meme asser ptillante. Bonne carbonisation et finale asser alcoolis avec un bon punch de surette. Trs diffrente de la normale et de la plupart des oak aged beers.

Bottle thanks to Sarah. Pours a hazy deep amber with visible particulates and a light brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has notes of caramel, toast, spice and port with a backing cookie note. Flavor begins with bread, cookie and dark fruit and develops a port note in the finish.
