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.

Dark amber pour. Malt with dark fruits on the nose. Very sweet with some mild bittterness at the end. Very smooth but that is expect with most belgian style ales. Nice beer, very warming and extremely enjoyable. Would love to drink again when I am sober.

spagyetti (68) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2008
Bottle. A quad to rap your head around. A very smooth talker indeed. High octane and full of life, this quadruple will succeed with age.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Orange color with a small foam. Aroma shows a touch of bubble gum and light fruits. Powerful flavors of raisins, rum soaked dark fruits, honey, doughy, pastry-like malts, with lots of belgian character. Very boozy, but well balaced and fairly complex. Hmm, nice tasting, but the aroma and appearence leave a lot to be desired. This is a fresh batch and not my favorite. The last batch I sold (which I have several bottles aging) was amazing. This is a nice beer, but not a batch I’ll be collecting.
