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.

Bottle, 37,5 cl shared with Parket. Dark brown beer with a little beige head. Fantastic aroma of grapes, raisins, dry dark fruits, malts and oak, tannins give some sharpness to the smell. Has more the smell of wine than a smell of beer. Taste is also great: dark dry fruits, surrounded by malts giving a sweet touch and tannins again providing a sharpness and a sourness to the beer. Dry aftertaste, also the taste has something of wine in it. Is a totally different beer than the original quadrupel.

Bottle with Ann. Poured a murky plum color with small head and great sticky lacing. Aromas of dark fruit, caramel, oak, bready, and malt. Taste is layered smooth warming flavors of plum, fig, cherry, oak, and sweet candy sugar. Awesome.

Hasonlít a másik testvérére, de ennek például van egy vékony habja is és kissé szebb a színe. Illatában itt jobban érezni a hordós érlelést, ráadásul édeskésebb és marcipános. Ízében is ott a marcipán, bourbon whisky, aszalt gyümik, zöld alma. Az egész olyan behízelgő és igen selymes, itatja magát és a végén kirúgja a lábad alólad! Érdekességképen megjegyezném, hogy a papíromra az volt írva, hogy ez egy "Wookie bitch sör". Erre Te emlékszel Sörmók?

Forsberg_dk (258) - DENMARK - APR 17, 2012
37,5 cl bottle, pours dark brown with a minor head, aroma of malt caramel, brown sugar, oak, diacetyl, dark fruits and hint of booze, taste is similar to the aroma, fairly light drinkable but definitly a sipper, very enjoyable overall.

Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle: 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!

Koelschtrinker (21489) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 11, 2012
Frischer, intensiv malziger Beginn, dem man die Lagerung positiv anmerkt. Fruchtig-süß, etwas Hefe, rund, Vanille, es ist keine Alkoholigkeit erkennbar. Sehr würzig, minimale Säure, absolut harmonisch. Langer und trockener Vanillenachtrunk. 12/13/12/12/12/12

Reddish brown pour with legs. Caramel rasin prune mix of aromas. Big flavors of sweet molasses dark fruits and candi sugar. Very rich with a nice smooth balance. Very little carbonation, not much barrel flavors and a high price. But its very good.
