LA CORNE QUADRUPLE (OAKED)  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u

Quadruple from Ebly, brewed at des Legendes, with an ABV of 12.0%. New brew for me.

Pours a deep ruby with a smallish creamy frothy head. Strong residual throughout and some lacing.

Woody oaky hoppy spicy aromas.

It's medium to full bodied, and nicely carbonated with a soft and filling mouthfeel. Complex, layered, balanced and with a good depth of flavour it's smooth, creamy and luxurious in texture and taste. When it's coldest the woody oak dominates and is quite harsh to a degree but as it warms it mellows nicely and we get caramel, malts, hops, honey, some orchard fruits and some dried
fruits. Overall quite sweet but there is a subtle bitter and dry finish. At its warmest the grains, spices, vanilla and bourbon start to dominate, whilst the woody oak becomes more background, and it even starts to resemble a liqueur, maybe a bit like Cointreau. Reminds me a little of Tsjeeses. Outstanding brew!


Cheers!

Hi Viv et al.
Finally had this beer!



Available these days amongst the new seasonal Xmas beers.

Wow, what a great quadrupel.
Sweet, malty, oaky, woody, spicy, and that boost of 12 vol%.
A beer to sip with care and high satisfactions.

Notice the change of label, which I truly like   :appauding-1:
