375 c&c shared by Marcus. Pours murky dark brown with no head. Soft treacle aroma. Med + body. Flavor is treacle with oak notes. Very smooth with a touch of alcohol. Tasty. northropfrye (3659) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Dark brown body, not much head. Strong bubblegum and dried fruit aroma, prunes, slight tart element. Taste is very sweet, malty. Didn’t get a lot of oakiness in this, pretty subtle. Quite nice quad. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2014
12.7oz bottle from Party Source on close out. Poured into a Chimay glass. Hazy brown color. As with other examples, this is almost completely flat. An aggressive pour yields very little khaki head that soon fades to nothing. This seems less carbonated than others, with a very, very light amount of carbonation. Medium to bigger body. More dry finish. Nice complex aroma... Dark fruit, very light spice flavors of the quad are complemented nicely by noticeable dark vinous grape flavors. Big tannin, hint of chocolate. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, light spiciness. Alcohol is pretty well-hidden for a barrel aged flat 10% quad, just a nice light warmth in the finish, very light bite. Reasonably tasty quad aside from carbonation issues, but I enjoyed the other barrel-aged variants I tried much more than this one. Zita (6327) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2013

Hazy dark amber - brown beer. Tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish and slightly dry. Mildly fine carbonation. Soft oak with a little vanilla. Mellow sweet bubblegum. Touch of sweet wine. Finishes smooth and semi dry. All the flavours are well balanced and come together very well. One of the better in this series. Drinks well below it’s abv.
Drank in celebration of the Longhorns’ victory over Oklahoma. Murky brown pour with a few bubbles but no real head. The aroma is very nice. I get some heavy dark fruit notes as well as some oak, molasses and some tobacco. The flavor is similar. The dark fruit notes are very nice and are complimented nicely by some brown sugar, molasses, caramel and oak. There is also a bit of whiskey character with some maple syrup and alcohol notes. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 (Bottle, Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 27 July 2013) Dark reddish brown colour with brief head. Malty, fruity nose with caramel, dried fruit, raisins, oak wood and hints of red wine. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, dried fruit, raisins, prunes, hints of oak wood and wine. A certain spicy bitterness. Full body, with a certain sweetness. The oak character is fairly toned down, but the the beer is very well balanced and tasty. Very nice. NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Pours a dark brown with a khaki head. Aromas of dark fruit, brown sugar, yeast, oak, and touches of wine. Flavor is a perfect balance of all the aromas. The wine character is just wonderful but not overpowering. Rich and long lasting finish. Another great oak aged quad from la trappe. Every single one I’ve had has been delicious and every batch is so different. Delicious! gunnfryd (15086) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013

I’m back. For Walt. Also because this is really monumental.
Brown sugar, raisin, toasted caramelized marshmellows. Perfect amount of carbonation for this beer. Amazing. Glad to be back on ratebeer.
