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.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Good red-brown appearance with a substantial head. Smells spicy and fruity with apples, bananas, light cinnemon, raisins, and rum. Flavor is equally fruity with some pear, apple, caramel, raisins, and cinnemon, with a dry yeasty character tying it all together. Dried fruit on the finish, continues to taste dry on the throat with a bitter well-rounded dark fruit taste. Some wood and light hops. Creamy mouthfeel, but it’s not very thick, and the carbonation is higher than I’d like. Decent beer, worth respect, but it’s just too damn fruity for to think it’s really good.

I know the trappists very good. And the quadrippel are among the best beers in the world. You find it in this very nice and ballanced beer. A good tast and smells like wow. A must for every beer taster. Drunk it as well on draft as from bottle, also taste old versions of it and they are still very nice

reddish brown body with minimal beige head..aroma of citrus, belgian yeast, spice, tart cherry, a maybe a splash of vinegar...flavor is heavy in bread-like qualities, hints of dark fruit, and chewy malts..nice palate complements this well-acclaimed quad

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2008 Pours a nice caramel brown color with light carbonation. Very sweet but goes down easy. The alcohol content is totally hidden. Subtle spices add to the sweel fruity taste.

DarkMagus (473) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Dark golden amber color. Sweet malty, sugary aroma. Preseence of caramel, red grapes, apples, spices, and a bit of pepperiness. Rich, fruity flavorwith caramel, rasins, plums, apples, and a spicy peppery alcoholic aspect to it. Very soft and silky mouthfeel. Pretty good--worth drinking but perhaps not really a competitor with other Trappist quadrupels.

Absolutely fantastic Quad, my 2nd favorite. Aroma of cookies, brown sugar, and dates. Smooth, soft alchol in the taste with some dark sugar sweetness, prunes, toasted bread in the mouth. Some spicy yeasty notes as well. Very complex.

A very nice Quad. Candied sugar and estery fruity goodness. Shit, it was a rough night. Sandwich this in between a Triple, Behemoth, and a few more big beers and you have a night of bliss. This was just decent compared to a lot of the beers. But it was a pretty fantastic decent.
