On-tap a few weeks back at OBriens as Koenigshoven Quad. Pours clear brown/red with a white head and good lace. Smells malty sweet, with brown sugar and some booze scent as well. Tastes malty sweet with dark fruits like rasins and plums. Some chocolate and alcohol flavors as well. Medium body and a little acidic from the alcohol, good carbonation.

Konings Hoeven Quadrupel has a dark amber color with a nice off white head and ok lacing. Has a sweet, malty smell. Fruity and banana smell. It has a very sweet malty taste and the alochol is present.

petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2008
Warm esters and sweet alcohol as well as some malty hints dominates the aroma. The flavour is quite complex dominated by figs, orange, plums soft malt and a long balanced finish with some hops. OK but could use a year or two to settle...

tympanic (168) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle labeled Konings hoeven. This is an interestingly spicy quadrupel. Fizzy, peppery, malty, chewy, warm. Though I am drinking this mid-spring, I appreciate the full-bodied complexity of this wonderful brew.

ogivlado (7557) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 29, 2008
Bottled(330ml). -Ruby red coloured, small head that fade away for about 2 seconds (the beer was served too cold), pleasant alcoholic fruity nose. The taste is sweet fruity (berries and dried fruit), alcoholic spicy and light yeasty. Very complex brew. This is a beer to drink and enjoy in chilly spring evening.

The suspended carbonation of this exquisite ale in a quadruppel brew leaves me speechless, but not wordless. One of my favoraite Belgian brews to date, its flavor is sublime, the aftertaste beckons for anolther gullp. What a treat!

Thanks to Ramenen. Bottle: Caramel and licorice on a floral and spicy background. ABV is well blended into this complex brew.

A powerful creamy aftertaste is the signature of this beer. Dark and warming alcohol with a sweet creamy overlay. Chewy too. Beautiful.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 25, 2008
33cl bottle. Pours a dark amber-red with a lacy head; a little light for a quad, but still nice looking. The aroma is a little tart and yeasty with a healthy dose of alcohol that burns a little. Caramel, raspberry, yeasty tanginess and some bubble-gum flavors. At first, the funky tartness is pretty noticeable, but it mellows as the beer warms. Finishes dry with a sharp alcohol bite that is slightly distracting. Pretty full body with smooth, creamy carbonation. A little different than the other trappist quads that Ive had, with less malt richness and more alcohol bite. Almost leaning toward a tripel with the dryer spicier qualities.
