La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged Batch 23 - BA Quadrupel / 11% vol / 37.5 cl.
The Batch Register about Batch 23:
Exactly 3 years ago, Oak Aged first came onto the market with the famous Spätburgunder. This 2nd version with the famous German red wine is noticeably different. The wine aromas of this Pinot Noir are easily recognizable in both the smell and the taste. In addition, note: sweet apple, banana and date. The entire taste association results in a spicy effect. The fairly strong carbonization provides a stimulating smell and taste.
The taste has many wood tannins and is slightly sweet due to this red wine, tending to port. This flavor remains for a long time and slowly turns into a red wine-like aftertaste that lingers. With a small hint of tobacco, this batch 23 by the famous Quadrupel is beery and full. The alcohol remains well in the background, although the 11% of the Quadrupel has been retained.
This Oak Aged comes into its own when it is served at a temp. from 16-18°C.
This batch was blended in December 2015.
