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.

One of my favorite Belgians,and i can’t believe i haven’t rated it yet. Aroma is a fragrant red berry and and vanilla fruit malt,smells like your walking through the fruit section of the farmers market. that alcohol is sneaking out there. Taste is like cherry sucker with more of that vanilla malt ,and a smooth alcohol and slightly sweet finish. Taste is a little bitter in finish,so you can;t sip it to fast,which is just the way the monks wanted it. An absolute treat

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2010 Credevo peggio: molto anonima ma buonina. Peccato che la prenotazione di sto albergo a Parigi mi stia facendo diventare pazzo.

webjedi (250) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2008
Nice color. Pours a dirty copper with a medium full head which dissipates quickly. Definite sharp alcohol nose, but sweet... like an aperitif. Not as fruity (apple/pear) as the others in the line, but very floral and pleasant (minus that initial alcohol). I like it, but there are others which are better. had floaty bits of yeast (even is carefully handled and stored upright). Decided to go with a strong beer to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the repealing of Prohibition in the US. (Bottle Pour 4/7/2008)

UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 on Tap, served in a tulip Very good aroma, amazing sweet fruit taste. The alcohol was well hidden. I had no idea the ABV was 10%. I would definitely buy again

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 4, 2008
330 ml bottle. Dark ruby red. Light haze. Lots of carbonation. Yeasty nose with a hint of marzipan. Ripe green grapes. Some fusels. Medium-sized white head that clings to the glass. Rich malt flavour with warming alcohol. Thick texture with quite a lot of residual sugars. Münchener malts. Notes of caramel and black pepper. More marzipan, but not as much as seen in earlier samples. Overall a very rich Belgian strong ale.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2008
Foam Rangers tasting. Deep amber with small head. Nose of pitted fruits, malts and nuts. Flavor is the same, with yeast flavors added for good measure. Good body and nice finish.

DSG (10542) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2008
(3/13/08) Bottle at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Deep amber with a quickly-disappearing small white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, dried fruits (raisins and some prunes), a bit of yeast and spices and a bit of alcohol. Sweet flavor with malt, some spicy yeast and lots of fruits. Medium to full body. Good but not great.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Bottle. Dark amber color which hazes if you pour the abundant sediment. Fairly small head, but it sticks to the glass. Lovely aroma of figs. Sweetish and extremely potent with lovely, fruity ale-esters. Notes of chocolate, nuts, figs, dates, caramel - all the goodies. Lovely beer.
