Konings Hoeven Quadruple Trappist Ale
From Koningshoeven: Quadrupel sit at the top of the Koningshoeven range. At 10% alcohol by volume, it’s a big deep amber beer with a rich, warming flavor. Full-bodied and mild, slightly sweet and just a hint of bitterness round out the palate. In the nose you will detect fruit, a faint, pleasant yeastiness and just a touch of resiny hops.
