2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2007 750 ml oz bottle from a trade (big thanks to whoever sent this!). Says Konings Hoeven, NOT La Trappe on the label. I have no idea of the age...Pours a dark copper with a nice head that quickly evaporates to nothingness.Nose is full of fruity easters and belgium yeast. This starts and ends a bit sweet with some candy, caramel, peach, subtle bananna, berry and a tiny bit of tartness in the finish. A bit of heat as well. Body is medium, carbonation is low/medium. An almost average Belgium..

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2007 Koningshoeven Quadrupel on tap@O’Brien’s pub: Deep reddish brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty and fruity with a faint hint of banana. Flavor starts rich with dark fruit, port and the slightest hint of bubblegum finishing lightly dry and lightly bitter. Full bodied and velvety smooth with gentle carbonation. Much under-rated IMHO.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 From a 12oz bottle. Garnet or dark amber hue with creamy tan head, good lacing, carmel malty smell, syrupy texture, dark, spicey, big flavor, full body, hint of nutmeg, lightly alcoholic, average duration, similar to a Chimay Blue and on par with any good Quad, a good nightcap beer. Can understand these monk agenda...Mmm.
