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

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. Bosbouw (2983) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2015

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. alexsdad06 (10656) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2015
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.
