Koningshoeven Quadrupel (La Trappe)
Koningshoeven Quadrupel Trappist Ale
Ratebeer 3.81 96th percentile
Beer Advocate A-
This is the only Trappist Ale produced in The Netherlands.
The nose is very sweet with raisins, dark cherries, malt and alcohol. The taste is all trappist style; effervescent alcohol backed with malt sweetness, plums, dark fruit and cherries. You can almost equate this to tasting a strong rum cake that has been put through a blender.
There is the strong alcohol presence balanced with the raisin/cassis sweetness.
Alcohol Content +1 10%
Ouch, you can sure taste it. Oddly it does not seem out of place.
This was not cheap. I picked it up at the CBAW in Cook Street Village for about $8 for 230ish ml.
Ingame Enhancement +1
Molson, Nightware, Matrix and myself tried to finish the blood harvest map on expert. The key word here is "tried".
Overall 8/10 BOOM ZOMBIESHOT
If you like strong Trappist Ales, this one will not disappoint.
