La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged Batch #11 | Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven
Style: Belgian Quadrupel
Out of Production
Description: BATCH 11 (blended on 23 April 2012) was distributed as follows: Type in BATCH Malbecbarrels 55% New French Oak Medium Toast 20% New French Oak High Toast 20% Acasia wood 5% BATCH 11 is the final batch that used Malbecbarrels. However, this batch too contains a lot of Quadrupel that was used on new wood. Batch 11 is a bottling that is very complex aroma-wise. The aroma of the Malbec wine is prominent; a lot of oak flavour from the medium toast; a lot of vanilla and almond from the high toast; flowery aromas from the Acacia and, of course, the ale aromas from the Quadrupel. Very robust and tannin-rich in flavour, an additional lagering in the bottle is recommended. This additional lagering will further increase the complexity and tone down the flavour. Although the red wine influence is clear, the wood aromas dominate in this batch. Highly recommended for anyone who likes heavy ales/wines rich in wood flavour and aroma.
