The bottle states: 0:00 K24F13 BATCH 14
A: Hazy medium shade of dark brown beer, a lot like murky pond water (excuse the negative imagery). Very little white head that fades quickly. Decent lacing.
S: Alcohol right off the bat. A bit flowery smelling. Even with the strong alcohol, it has a very pleasant scent to it. It smells like a bag of dates before the nose is overwhelmed by the scent of alcohol.
T: Mellow alcohol flavor, with a sweetness like cotton candy. It's a very delicate and light beer. It's nice. The bottle says "Oak Aged Trappist Ale" however I do not notice any oak character. It's not very complex for a quad, and it is quite simple. It's enjoyable though.
M: The mouthfeel is perfect. It's nice and smooth with just the right carbonation, a nice clean finish that is refreshing.
O: Overall I'd say it's a very nice beer, just not an exceptional quad. It excels in simplicity and delicateness. The most prominent flavor is alcohol. Personally I would have liked a more complex and flavorful beer. For a beer with "oak" in the title, I would have liked some oak influence in the flavor and aroma. It's not something I would probably buy again, because it just wasn't memorable enough.
