La Trappe quad poured from a 750ml bottle. Deep amber with HUGE head of tight beaded
bubbles and fantastic lacing. Very lively. Pools of thin foam give waft to dates, dark plums,
tart cherries, Belgian candy sugars , and high octane alcohol. Flavors of sweet brown sugar
candy malts, figs and plums to the sides, light bittering on the back with lots of warming.
Mouthfeel is solid for the style, lots of carbonation. Slick and silky smooth. Very coating
on the tongue. A great finishing brew for the night. Once this fine ale had a nice yeast layer
keeping it alive when it was known as Konihshoven. Said layer is much lighter now but still
very good for the style. An A plus.

A: Clear golden with finely bubbled straw-colored, foamy head. Very light for style. (3.5)

S: Clean, sweet aromas of candy and spice. Light but unidentifiable fruitiness. Fig and date predominate. (4.0)

T/M: Thin, moderately carbed, moderate candy sweetness and a subdued herbal spice. Moderately bitter, slight butter (very slight). Slightly oily malt character. (4.25/4.5)

O: 4.25

Excellent, smooth, full bodied, rich beer. I can't compare it to anything else because I've never had anything like it. If you like ales, you'll love this.
