With all the excitement over the WestyV12, it was a good time to try this on draft and I found a new favorite. This has the power of an ancient Quad, the wine fruit scent and the deep dark earthy tastes that just gets better as it warms up. My new all time best beer of any style, could drink this exclusively if suddenly the rest of the world forgot all their beer recipes and all you could drink was this. Sorry I cannot include more descriptive terms, like steak, mushrooms and biscuits, but if you get the idea that this beer is awesome I have said enough.

2005 vintage

When I saw this at the store I got so excited I had to buy it. $11.99/341ml isnt too bad for a 8 year old beer. Brewed in 2005 and aged for two years in french oak wine barrels and an additional 5 years in bottle.

Mild carbonation which dissipated quickly. Beer is almost flat but is to be expected. Smells of wine, oak, dark chocolate. Great mouthfeel, so smooth despite the lack of carbonation. Taste brings notes of grapes, and heavy on the wine.

Overall this beer was a game changer for me. I can see myself comparing any other aged strong dark beers to this. It doesnt taste much like a quad, the flavours have mellowed out so much. You get the fruity bouquet youd expect from a quad but it isnt as in your face as you normally get from a beer like La Trappe. I wish everyone could try this beer. My store only had a case.. and it looks like I will be going there for opening tomorrow to grab as many as I can!

Top 3 beer ive ever had, hands down.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 16/1/13 2005 vintage

A the darkest brown with a deep cola edge, quite murky with lots of sediment upon closer inspection, thumbs width of dense mocha foam slowly falls to a thin film leaving some random lace

S sweet brewers candy, anise, root beer, burnt toffee, faint chocolate, candied cherries, fresh plum and some rum raisin with some woody earthy notes, the smell is complex to say the least

T a little spice and perhaps just a hint of banana bread, faint sour fruit I didn't notice on the nose, the oak comes out a little more in the mouth, not quite the same complexity as the nose but pretty tasty stuff

M not quite full bodied with mellow carbonation, has a little sweet and sour thing going on and a earthy anise finish

O great beer and its held up quite well, perhaps its peaked already but very solid today, the booze is completely hidden and no complaints anywhere

I swore I'd reviewed this one in the past but apparently not, I'm curious what this tasted like a couple years ago, I don't think I'd age this one beyond this point, drink em if you got em
