The dubbel was smooth with a sweet malty flavor. You could taste the alcohol a bit during but it smoothed out on the finish. The aroma was all malt and molasses.
Here’s a photo of the Koningshoeven Trappist Ale glass I got from the Porter Beer Bar last night. I also stuffed myself on a Chicken Schnizel Sandwich and fries. It was a good evening, wish I fit into the crowd in Little Five Points a bit better.
Their description of the event:
“So La Trappe is one of seven Trappist breweries, and the only outside of Belgium. La Trappe has been called Koningshoevn in the US for a few years now due to a trademark dispute, but now it’s finally going back to La Trappe. La Trappe makes the traditional double, triple and quadruple, but also Tilburg Dutch Brown. Tilburg is one of my favorite browns, only made more tasty by the Hieronymus Bosch drawing of a bird eating a man from his triptic of Earth, Heaven and Hell on the lable. In celebration of the return of La Trappe we are having a last hurrah of Koningshoevn goblet night. Limited edition. Last chance, hopefully we’ll see you tonight!”
