La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged Batch #29 | Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven
Style: Belgian Quadrupel
Out of Production
Description: BATCH 29 was distributed as follows: Type in BATCH Bourbon 90% Oak High Toast 5% Acacia 5% To achieve the optimal quality of Oak Aged, Quadrupel has matured for three years in Bourbon barrels. This double-oaked bourbon with double maturation in oak creates an even more intensive taste. Furthermore, the flavour of Quadrupel remains well preserved. Quadrupel has a fine-pearled beige head on top of the clear mahogany-brown beer. Quadrupel’s initial scent is the familiar fruitiness and malty aroma with a strong presence of caramel. This is immediately followed by many wood aromas, such as vanilla, almond and also tobacco-like scents. With the first gulp, the bourbon comes across modestly, yet clearly and you taste the fine and even balance between bourbon whiskey and beer. The result is an Oak Aged beer with the richness of American oak aromas, lightly burnt, and followed by warmed alcohol and a soft but clear presence of bitterness. Due as well to the long maturing period, the complexity of this beer is extremely high and new taste associations keep surfacing. Carbonation keeps the taste refreshing in spite of the rather high sweetness and provides a nice tingling in the mouth.
