COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, - NOV 14, 2012
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.

jamestulloch (2683) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle from Cork & Cask. Hazy orange body with a thin white head. No visible carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of orange, pear drops, apricot and white sugar. Flavour of marzipan, yeast, banana and coriander. Medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Lively fizz. Quite sweet, but a tasty beer indeed.

tmoreau (3263) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2016
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served displaying a coppery amber color. with a finger’s width of soft white head foam that reduced to a persistent ring & film, and showed some wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was sweet, with dried esters as pit fruit & cherry, and a hint of vanilla. The taste was similar, with the vanilla a bit more evident, medium bodied, and lively enough effervescence to project the aforementioned flavor notes, plus an earthy bitterness and some tart astringency. The alcohol was warming, but not boozy, and the texture was non sticky/syrupy. An enjoyable, well balanced Quad.

Evilkniamhel (80) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Rich amber colour with a creamy head. Aromas of raisin, banana, vanilla and caramel. More sweet flavours on the palate, overall very rich yet nicely balanced.

nathanvc (115) - Brugge, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2016
Pours dark orange towards amber with a rocky white head that lasts. Really beautiful colour. The aroma contains banana, caramel, nuts, vanilla, some other fruits. Tastes medium sweet and light bittersweet in the finish. Stunning palate, nice carbonation, full body, warming alcohol but doesn’t taste that boozy. Excellent.

Malt and fruity aroma. Dark amber color with a beatiful white head. Taste is fairly caramel sweet and fruity sensation, together with slight bitterness. Very good beer.

Garrold (3327) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2016
Tap. Monk, Brussels. Clear, dark orange Amber. Thin, lasting, white head. Aroma of almond. Sweet, boozy fruit. Candied peel. Chewy malt. Taste is sweet, and rich. Some vine fruit dryness. Smooth, rich, full mouthfeel. Finishes sweet, and dries a little on the close. Pretty easy drinking at the ABV.

Pongauer (12) - Maassluis, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2016
amber, full body, long finish. A quality beer and probably the best version of the la trappe beers. Hard to believe you can get this kind of quality in your local grocery store.

Janikk (5) - Nowa Wie¶, POLAND - JAN 15, 2016 does not count
bardziej przypomina miód pitny od piwa na końcu pozostaje bardzo mocny smak alkoholu barwa o jeden odcień jaśniejsza od bursztynu dominuje banan, a gdzieś podobno kryje się migdał goryczka bardzo delikatna, wręcz niewyczuwalna piana niezbyt obfita

Dark amber cloudy appearance. Pleasant aroma. Consistent flavour, with no real aftertaste. Smooth tasting.
