4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium creamy head, changes slowly into a thick lacing on top of an amber brown colored beer.
Smell raisin, wood, earth, oak, dust, light grapes, vinous. Nice aroma’s.
The flavours are also very nice: nice wood, bourbon, red & dark fruits, some sweets (but balanced and nothing too sweet), light dry, grapes and cream. Very good Barrel aged quadruppel.
Aftertaste is damn tasty too: dry wood, oak, bourbon-ish, vanilla.
Low to medium carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium to full body and a creamy texture.
Very good thing is that the alcohol is very well hidden. Lovely beer!
