La Trappe Quadrupel

What's better than a trappist quadrupel? Not much my friend, not much. La Trappe is the only trappist brewery not located in Belgium. Fun fact, there are only 7 trappist breweries. Let's see what these monks have come up with.

Beer: Quadrupel
Style: Abt/Quadrupel
ABV: 10.0%

This beer pours a deep copper, almost red color with two fingers worth of off white head. Aroma is full of dark fruits (plums, pears, and cherries come to mind). This beer has a very deep and complex aroma, full of deep esters. Flavor is sweet, fruity, with a hint of spice from the yeast. The aftertaste is plums and alcohol. Body is medium with a good amount of carbonation.
