Quadrupel is La Trappe’s heaviest ale with a stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced. Malty sweet, slightly burnt, and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Quadrupel continues to ferment after bottling and offers aromas of banana, almond, vanilla and others.

On tap in "La casa the la cerveza" in Madrid. Hazy brown colour with a nice creamy head. Aroma consists of caramel, some tropical fruits maybe, some candy sugar and belgiam yeast. Flavour also brings along oak, wood and a more presant caramel taste. It has good a bit sharp mouthfeel at first, but then it smoothens up soft, suiting carbonation. The alcohol is not notable in the aroma nor the flavour. I can sense some bitterness in the aftertaste, really good. Overall a top scoring beer in my opinion.

Hazy orange with a thick and creamy beige head. Aroma has fruity esters, mostly banana, and sweet malt. Taste has banana, figs, chocolate, raisins, sweetness, spicy yeast and hops. Full body, soft carbonation, round. Banana dominates the after taste, some peppery yeast as well.

Nariz: El conjunto es complejo con aromas como banana, vainilla, clavo, toffe, avellanas, una ligera nota que recuerda el anís y un fondo de levadura Boca: Una cerveza sedosa de amargor muy fino, dulce y licorosa, en boca se remarca un poco la levadura, sensación cremosa de final prolongado Vista: Semiturbia, cobriza con tonos dorados y oro viejo una espuma abundante y blanquecina

Flaska från Systembolaget. Bärnstensfärgad och lätt vitt skum. Lätt smak av alkohol. Annars skumbanan och syra.

This clocks in at a hefty 10% ABV. Complex aromas dominated by banana and hints of vanilla. It has a thick sweet taste that follows right through the palate.

Amber color, light brown head. Aroma: spices, yeast, malts, fruits. Creamy mouthfeel - not too complex but I liked it - very ballanced. Kind a sweet with nice biter ending. Enjoyable.

La trappe quadrupel trappist bottle from rome. Misty brown ale with a shortlived off white head. Nutty and sweet aroma. Taste is spicy sweet and strong with banana and almond flavours. Seems over carbonated to me with a medium body.
