Review: La Trappe Quadrupel (Koningshoeven / Dominus)

La Trappe Quadrupel (Koningshoeven / Dominus) from Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven B.V.
Rating: B

Bottle is very different from the one in the picture, but it appears to be the same beer.

Appearance: An orange tinted, clear garnet color, decent-sized head with mediocre retention. Minor lacing.

Smell: Typical dark fruits, plus berry, over a Belgian dark candi carameliness and a hint of alcohol.

Taste: Fruity and malty, tastes almost "tropical" at the swallow, like a boat drink. Slightly tart. Alcohol is evident.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, carbonation as expected for the style.

Drinkability: Moderated by high alcohol and what seems to me an unnecessary tartness.

Serving type: bottle
