The Bourbon Whiskey immediately comes to the fore in smell and taste. Vanilla, oak, almond and plum can be recognized here. Batch 33 is full of flavor and its complexity is extremely high. This results in a fine balanced balance between La Trappe Quadrupel, Bourbon Whiskey and oak. While tasting, new taste associations are constantly emerging. Despite the relatively high sweetness, the carbonic acid keeps the taste fresh and provides a pleasant stimulus in the mouth. The alcohol is clearly present in the aftertaste. As the beer becomes warmer, the taste of oak becomes more prominent and the beer becomes tannin richer with a soft vanilla touch.
Composition: Bourbon US (80%) + New oak Medium Toast (15%) + New Oak High Toast (5%)
In 2009, the Koningshoeven Brewery reinstated an old tradition by aging La Trappe Quadrupel in oak barrels, thus creating a unique Trappist ale with a perfectly balanced flavour, special aroma of wood, and an alcohol content of 11%.
Pure indulgence for the genuine ale lover
The complex taste depends on the type of barrel in which it is aged and therefore, each batch is different. The ale continues to ferment after bottling, may be kept for many years, and offers real indulgence to the genuine ale lover.
The aging process involves new as well as used barrels. The tantalising combination of flavours thereby created depends on the drink that had been previously stored in the barrels, whether it was port, whisky, wine, or brandy. The ultimate taste is also affected by the type of wood the barrel is made from. New oak casks, for example, give the ale its characteristic tannins, which impart a delicate vanilla and almond flavour.
