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.

August orange amber with an amazingly perfect 1" thick creme fraiche browned head that clings the sides of the glass. Unique, piquant esteriness with some medicinal/cleaning fluid notes mixed in to complicated the buzz.

750 ml bottle. This beer pours a dark amber, with a small head. It has a strange smell, hard to distinguish. The first time I had it, thought it tasted like good sewer water. Upon second try, it had an odd first sip, but it mellowed upon warming. It has some basic similarities to really great beers, and is so close to being one, but there is a flavor that is either there, or missing that makes this beer just miss the mark for me.

750ml bottle labeled as Koningshoeven. Pours amber/mahogany with slightly laced white head. Aroma of apples and yeast, can’t quite define the taste. Decent body. And solid beer but as complex as other belgians.

Good but not great for the style. Alcohol a bit more prominent than I generally like. The depth and complexity of flavor was decent, but not up to the level of a st bernardus 12 or rochefort 10.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 33cl bottle from Belgianshop. Pours a dark golden/light brown color with a medium head that settles down fast. The taste is bitter, fruity and malty. The alcohol is also very prominent. It has a medium aftertaste.

Decent quadrupel. Vinous, fruity with alcohol prominent in the taste. Not the best, but overall a good tasting beer.

Pours dark brown like a clear ale. Moderate head, Notes of caramel, alcohol, and malt. Lots of foam head. Decent flavor, Not very yeasty, slightly hoppy. An average good beligian.

Bottle from Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery. Pour was light ruby with a sweet aroma of dark fruit and an alcoholic kick. Taste was very sweet again with dark fruit, a lot of malt, and a medium body. Alcohol was hidden pretty well considering it wasn’t a full bodied beer. Smooth finish with a bit of toffee in the aftertaste. This was a real tasty brew. Would definitely buy again.
