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.

While I thought the mouthfeel of this beer was quite good, I was not a huge fan of its sour grape and champagne flavor. It is lightly sweet and tastes a bit like dried fruit, which may have been what bothered me (I’m not a fan). Aroma was a bit of a candied fruit sugariness. I had this beer on draft, and it was not unattractive in its martini-like branded glassware - a hazy red color with a white scummy head of inconsistently sized tiny bubbles. Still, i was not a huge fan of this beer.

KidA (19) - Morristown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2007
White wine and chemical scent-no head, no carbonation. Looks slightly murky with more yeast floating in the first pour than the rest for some reason. Sweet, sour, syrupy with orange and bandaids as the prominent identifiable tastes. Thin for a quad and almost entirely flat. Might have been a bad bottle.

SDalkoholic (2274) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 1, 2007
A big and heavy quad with a dense brown appearance. Covered with a creamy topping of film and lively carbonation. Aroma is refreshing Belgian yeast that’s mild and subtle. The flavor is sticky, spicy and sweet yeast with big malt but yet this is the most tamed quadruple I can think of. So easy going and strong but at the same time packs a punch of power and feels heavy. I really loved this stuff.

Bottle. Ruby red color with a nice cream colored head. Big caramel aroma with spice, fig and plum. Rich caramel/toffee malt with yeast, dark stone fruitiness, and spice. Alcohol nticable but not overpowering. LIngering caramel and spice. Body a little lighter than expected. Good complexity.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Poured a darkish amber color with a thin white head, mostly clinging to the glass edges. Cloves and other spices, caramel, yeast, and maybe a little leather on the nose. Burnt caramel sweetness to start, yielding to nice meld of light spice and a little heat. Took a second, but I like this one.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2007
Dark mahogany body, rapidly fading head, mediocre lacing. Crude sweet malty aroma, with strong yeastiness. Burnt sugar, yeast and dark fruit. Taste is sickly sweet up front and dries out on the spicy & yeasty finish. Slight hopbitterness is revealed in the finish too. Solid mouthfeel with little carbonation.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Strong banana aroma with a malty sweetness. Amber color with foamy tan head. Flavor is dried fruits, caramel, roasted malt, toffee, and rounds out to a light bitter finish. Good amount of flavor changes throughout with a good long duration. Fairly rich and creamy in the mouth. Light alcoholic finish. Quite good.
