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.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - APR 11, 2006
Poured a bright copper with a quickly disappearing off white head. Very complex profile. Banana is most noticable but raison, toffee, date, caramel, and some peach. There is a significant hop presence for a belgian style beer, though i wouldn’t call it bitter by any other standards. Sweet, medium bodied palate and finish.

brown with medium head. Very warm from the alcohol and filling. Lively carbonation. Great long finish. Perhaps the best of the "la trappes".

Pours a dark copper and had a great looking off white head...that went away a little fast, but still some nice lacing. Aroma is yeast, raisins, bananas, malt, and alcohol. Taste is pleasant...spice and belgian yeast...alcohol, caramel, nuts, and vegetable oil. Mouthfeel is kind of sticky and actually decently hot from the alcohol...which I usually don’t get from quads much less belgians. I dig this beer...and I think it saves the la trappe label from being too marginal.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2006
This is an ’04 that I’ve had in the cellar for two years. Nice half inch, light brown head, excellent lacing. Color is dark brown. Aroma of moderate malt, toasted, moderate yeast, dough, banana, vanilla, and cherry. Initial flavor was moderately sweet with a long finish. Really malty taste, but not as much cherry and vanilla that was indicated by the aroma. There was a moderate a level of alcohol in the finish. I think this could;ve stayed in the cellar for a coupld more year.

12 oz bottle. Murky brown pour with medium sized floaties. Very small head turned to nothing before I finished smelling. Aromas of banana, honey, molassas, and roasted malts. Very sweet flavors. More banana, and molassas. Alcohol warming on the finish. Good Beer

apkerga (11) - Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2006
very large, lasting light brown head. A very noticeable alcohol aroma and flavor which was prevalent in the finish. very aromatic with heavy maltiness and grape scents and flavors. If you like wine, and you like beer, meet your new best friend

Bottle. Cherry/peach malt and medicinal alcohol aroma. Cloudy orange-brown color with moderate head. Sweet apple-peach flavor with fairly strong alchohol and bitter finish. A tad rough but overall nice.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAR 19, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2009 Pours a hazy amber in color with a quarter-inch off-white head that quickly fizzes away. VeryBelgian aroma: yeast, fruit, sweet malts, a slight sourness. Flavor is sweet malt, apricot, yeast, and banana bread with a warm alcohol burn. Fizzy mouthfeel due to high carbonation. Very flavorful, very strong - almost a whiskey-like burn as it goes down. A great beer.
