La Trappe Quadrupel Trappist Ale

La Trappe beers are from the Brouwerij de Koningshoeven in the Netherlands.

This 10% ABV beer pours a deep orange copper in color with a half inch of thick and fizzy head that is off-white in color.  The aroma is dark rich, and sweet caramel, some juicy raisin, a hint of vanilla, along with an earthy, woody and tart yeastiness.  The alcohol is noticeable.  The taste is the deep, dark, rich, sweet caramel over a light fruitiness.  This is rich and dessert-like, but with a nicely dry finish and a fine bubbliness on the mouth.   This is a nice Trappist ale.
