La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged Batch #14 | Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven
Style: Belgian Quad
Out of Production
Description: Acacia wood 7%; New oak barrels 11%; Limousine barrels with Cognac 82% The aroma is dominated by cognac, with hints of flowers, prunes, grapes, almond, vanilla and, of course, slightly burnt wood. In the background we can still distinguish the regular and famous Quadrupel flavour. On the palate, warmth and the grape fruitiness of cognac. Then follows that of sweets. This is not at all disturbing in this batch, on the contrary, it provides an exciting component to the beer as a whole. It’s still a beer and as such it has a specific bitterness. In this case, it is dominated by the wood tannins. The finish is oaky, malty and, finally, speaks of grape. A beautiful marriage of Quadrupel and Cognac from start to finish.
