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.

Bottled. Pours a slightly hazy red amber with a pillowy beige head. Sweet (very sweet) malty aroma, vaguely of fruits. Cloying taste, alcohol felt more in the throat than in the mouth, but it’s there, too. Sticky and syrupy but less so than some Doppelbocks (Doppelböcke? ;) ) I’ve had. Not a big fan.

Caramel colored head. Really clings to the glass. The aroma is strong, slightly fruity, and not especially pleasant (...or unpleasant). I feel the same about the flavour - it’s intense but not ultimately rewarding. The alcohol does not overpower the mouth but it does the head. My bottle is not called La Trappe, merely Konings Hoeven Quadrupel.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2006
Clay bottle. Amber coloured with a medium off-white head. A bit too sweet. Notes of earth, wood and citrus. Also slightly yeasty and a bit too high carb for me.

tjthresh (1866) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Pours a dark golden heading towards amber color with very some tanish head. Honey and alcohol dominate the aroma. Very sweet candyish character. Slightly fruity and very alcoholic. Rich and smooth mouthfeel. Tingly carbonation. Just kind of so-so.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 This beer pours a deep amber color with a LARGE tan head. The beer has a very floral aroma and flavor. This beer is quite well crafted. Kinda reminds me of what I would think a monastery would smell like if I had been to one. Cheers!

Candy aroma but great. Amazingly tasty head. Has the alcohol in it but not in a way that is too much. This is one fantastic beer. Would definitely buy again if I could find it. Had at Tapwerks in OK City.

Trev (1965) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Bottle: (Konings Hoeven Quadruple) Pours a nice medium amber topped with a slow fading off white head. Aroma was intensly vinous as soon as the cap was lifted, and a little bit of felt marker as well. Flavour is nice a fruity smooth start, raisin, faint sour cherry, with the alcohol asserting itself in the finish.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
very smooth with a very subtle alcohol flavor, which is good for a ’big beer’. This quad drank as smooth as silk and finish nicely, I’ll buy this one again

Beerdedone (2785) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle split with Stegosaurus. Pours amber with a tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, spices, and alcohol. Flavor is caramel, citrus, fruit. Not as good as i expected.
