375 ml bottle into chalice; Batch 6, April 2011 bottling. Pours hazy and cloudy dark reddish brown color with a small dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big raisin, prune, caramel, toffee, toast, oak, clove, molasses, light red wine, candi sugar, brown bread, vanilla, light chocolate, light peat, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with big complexity and balance of malt and fruity esters with moderate oak barrel presence. Taste of big raisin, prune, toffee, toast, caramel, molasses, clove, brown bread, oak, light wine, candi sugar, light peat, light chocolate, light vanilla, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of dark fruits, toffee, toast, caramel, molasses, brown bread, oak, clove, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of big malt flavors with moderate fruity/spicy esters; with moderate oak presence and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an incredible oak aged Quad! Tons of complexity and well balanced flavors; and quite smooth to sip on. Insanely enjoyable stuff; definitely worth enjoying again in the future, even for the high price of the bottle. delnoche (516) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - APR 12, 2013
375ml bottle poured into a La Trappe chalice. Dark, cloudy amber with no head. Lots of floaties. Aroma is spice, cherry, oak. Lots of oak in the flavor with some cherry and a bit of alcohol burn. Very soft palate with little carbonation. Short cherry finish. Very nice sipping beer.

Cellared for two years. Pours a ruby amber with floaters, with no head to speak of, and no fizz. Aroma of mince meat, banana, apricot, pepper and spices - bit of anise, vanilla, clove - wood bark, and malt. Taste is sweet over salt character, bringing out the oak and the white wine. Palate is a faint, fine carbonation, with an oily mouthfeel. Robust body. Solid beer. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2013

Very nice beer NikkTwist (3218) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle at Monks. Darker and smoother than the regular quad. Heady aroma as well. When first poured looked surprisingly clear though there ended up being a fair amount of sediment in the second half of the bottle. Dark caramel raisins. Very rich but a barrel aged ruby added to the normal vanilla malt bomb. This version is more refined. NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Wow. Absolutely amazing, pours a rusty brown with minimal head. Aromas of oak and wine are noticeable immediately. Lots of malt, yeast, and brown sugar too. Just so much going on. So complex. Minimal carbonation. My only complaint is the price: 20 dollars a bottle. I would venture to say it is worth it though. So great, if you can find it try it you wont be sorry.

Cork and caged bottle via SL. Pours a muddy red brown color.. when I popped the cork barely any carbonation response... Poured aggresive, no head to speak of. Decent amount of sediment in the bottom. Smells nice though. Raisons, plums, other dark fruits. Malty, raw brown sugar, with some oaky notes. Taste even better. Malty, brown sugar, raison, plums. The oak taste has just the right amount. All blended well togther. Body is oily, slick smooth.... carbonation level is low but far from flat. The alcohol is not noticable but slightly warming. Enjoyed sipping on this beer. Overall: Nice BA quad
