COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch 9 is de eerste waarbij gebruik is gemaakt van Malbecwijnvaten afkomstig uit Cahors. Deze wijn valt op door het zeer hoge tanninegehalte afkomstig uit de Pinot Noir druif welke de donkerste en meest tanninerijke wijndruif is. Doordat deze wijndruif echter zeer gevoelig is wordt zij weinig meer geteeld maar heeft een heel eigen karakter. Door onze quadrupel op deze wijnvaten te laten rijpen komen veel smaakassociaties uit deze wijn in het gelagerde bier terug. Omdat het gelagerde bier uit deze vaten toch al zo rijkelijk aan smaak is hebben we voor deze batch het percentage nieuw eiken teruggeschroefd tot 14%. Hierdoor is de houtsmaak en uit hout komende aroma’s iets minder maar komt het mooie wijnboeket van de Malbecwijn des te beter door.

Batch 9 is the first batch in which use is made ​​of Malbecwijnvaten from Cahors. This Quad is characterized by very high tannin from the Pinot Noir grape which the darkest, most tannic wine grape. Because this grape is very sensitive, however they have little more grown but has its own character. Our quadruple this wine casks to mature taste associations come from this wine in the back bearing beer. Because the bearings from the beer barrels already so rich in flavor, we have for this batch is the percentage of new oak reduced to 14%. This makes the wood flavor and aromas coming from wood but is slightly less beautiful bouquet of the wine Malbecwijn all the better.

375ml. For my 600th rating I chose to drink this Trappist. I had to use my teeth to open it. It poured brown liquid with almost no head. There are some bits floating inside. Nose : fruity nose with tart and cooked cherries. Some wood and vanilla. Sip : medium body with low carbonation, oily texture. It strikes with sweet cherry and vanilla tart aromas. It develops more sweet and sour but finer notes of fruits and wood elements. The end is going more into dry wood and spices and sour fruits. The sweetness in this beer is strong but really well balanced and the beer hides well the alcohol content. Quite tasty.

I rated this well after tasting it. It was good and had strong oak notes. Sorry these notes were just for myself now I'm forced to publish them and need more characters to do so, hence this sentence ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2016 batch #9, met dank aan René, super, thanks man ! met plastic kroon, tijdens openen hoor je niets, tijdens schenken blijkt al snel dat het koolzuur totaal verdwenen is. bruin dun licht stroperig dus zonder kraag. aroma van hout, vanille, fruit, wij, zoet, druif, pruim. smaken van donker fruit, pruim, mout, redelijk tot stevig zoet, dun, totaal geen koolzuur, matige body, wat fruitig en hout, valt mij redelijk tegen, maar komt met name door het ontbreken van het koolzuur.

Bottle, large sample. Hazy copper color, just some lacing. Aroma is a bit spicy, caramel, raisin, lots of red wine, oak wood. Bit sweet in taste, tannine bitterness, loads of red wine. Red wine blends quite nicely with the La Trappe Quad, and even is a bit dominant. Tasty.

I drank this beer right after the notorious Westvleteren 12. I must say I loved the La Trappe more. Looks: Cloudy, copper/brownish colored, flat beer. Aroma: Interesting combination of flavours. Delicious, but hard to discribe. It’s taste was wineous with first the Malbec grapes, fallowed by a hint of oak and the original quad taste. All very subtile, but all in the degree of compliment to each other. In short phrases: Wine, oak, caramel, plum, raisin, milky, vanilla.

12.7 oz. bottle from Party Source at home from notes. Pours a hazy deep copper color with a thin creamy off white film. The nose has big ripe fruits, raisins, fig, caramel, brown sugar, oak tannins and a touch of the alcohol. The flavor is more fruits, raisins, fig, caramel, oak, more tannins and alcohol. The alcohol is warming, but nothing really pops as this is very flat.
