🇳🇱 La Trappe Quadrupel Batch 37 (100% WOOD) (2020)
This truly remarkable Oak Aged batch consists of a mixture of oak, acacia and cherry wood barriques with medium and heavy toasting, in which the Quadrupel was allowed to age quietly for up to 2.5 years.
Previous La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged batches predominantly employed barrels that had been used to age spirits and wines. This time, we decided to use only unused barriques to create a unique signature of several types of European wood.
Batch 37 has a beautiful and firm layer of beige foam. Thanks to the long period of wood ageing, the beer has taken on a wonderful dark colour, going way beyond your normal Quadrupel ale.
The remarkable combination of wood types used for this batch yields a truly complex, rich and fine fragrance and taste. Long ageing in several kinds of unused barriques gives the La Trappe Quadrupel that typical wood aroma, with a scent that hints at plenty of vanilla, almond, cocoa and caramel.
The ale’s flavour can be described as warm, friendly, and most especially velvety. The pleasant note of bitterness is slightly softer than you’d find in the regular Quadrupel, making it more of a background flavour. The beer’s undertone is pleasantly sweet, due in part to the higher alcohol content. The aftertaste is dominated by a friendly aroma of wood, joined harmoniously by malty notes of caramel and ester. This extraordinary batch of Quadrupel Oak Aged is unique in more than one way. The finest woods meet our outstanding Quadrupel – a marriage made in beer heaven.

🇧🇪 Chimay Grand Réserve (Whisky Edition) (2018)
To the eye, an intense brown beer, with bright glints and creamy foam. On the nose, woody notes and delicate hints of pears as well as plums. On the palate, the barrel-ageing provides bread crust, roasting and smoky aromas, enhanced by a touch of honey and vanilla.
