Style: Quadrupel (Quad)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
In 2009, the Koningshoeven brewery reinstated an age-old tradition: aging La Trappe Quadrupel in oak barrels (also known as ‘barriques’).

This way of aging ale results in a unique, complex flavour, which varies from one type of barrel to another. Quadrupel can be conserved for many years, and is a real treat for true ale enthusiasts. And this is yet another ale that continues to ferment after bottling, while its rich taste and high tannin content are likely to even surprise many a wine drinker!

batch number 3. poured into crystal chalice. served at 61 degrees.

pours a honey brown. light lacing with a small head.

man. this is the best smelling beer ive ever come across. dark fruits dominate. sweet as can be

dark fruits with a heavy toffee aftertaste. alcohol content is virtually non existent.

cant believe my little liquor store carried this. at 20.00 this is super pricey but well worth it. the best trappist beer or for that matter Belgian style (made in holland) beer ive had. its a shame the Bros havent tried this yet.
