COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quadrupel is La Trappeís 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.

Bottle. Wonderful brew; picked up a six-pack in a Dutch grocery store. Short review for when I have another bottle and can review as I type. Yeasty, spicy fluffy feel, well hidden alcohol, orangey, plummy taste.

Goodgrief (1973) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 20, 2008
March 2006 - Wow...I donít get the hype around this beer...AT ALL. Pour was that of dark apple juice. Very little murkiness or darkness. Flavor was sickly sweet...and that of candied sugar...very little dark fruit or complexity...maybe some apples. Tasted like a "fake quad", akin to Avery the Rev or something else. I didnít dig this AT ALL.

This might be as close to perfection as I have found. Iíve never been a huge fan of Belgian ales - but after trying this one, Iím hooked. Iíll be brewing something like this for my next homebrew.

Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Konings bottle- Light maly yeast aroma. Dark amber, dark honey color. A little sweet, a little fruity, maybe thick oragne and plummy with some light spice. Alc is well hidden. Pleasent mouth feel, easy to drink for a srong beer. Good, but not elite.

gmonroe10 (243) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle. Dark color and medium fluffy head- seems to be a La Trappe head. Aroma of malts and definately sweet and fruity. Full flavor, but alcohol overpowering and too much at the end- not as smooth or as balanced as other quadrupels

ha1ag (840) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2008
bottled from AH in Mestreech. dark orange colour, medium fluffy beige head, caramel plum in the nose. Aroma has malts and caramel with fruity flavour. Alcohol comes through very clearly. very nicely composed complex beer, a little less alcohol would make it perfect

Light malty/banana aroma. Red/dark amber appearance. Flavour lightly acidic/bitter with a sweet/sour finish - but not offence, very nice.

An absolutely lovely brew. Deeply dark with a fine caramel cream head, a nose of dark fruits and spices, and a palate with hints of ginger, the slightest touch of cinnamon, and light bits of something elusive--nutmeg perhaps?--backstopped against a wonderful mouthful of dark fruits and brown sugared malts, yet with the alcohol balancing out the sweetness. Lovely. Absolutely love.

Had this in Toronto. Expected big things from this, and was disappointed. Nice aroma, dark amber colour, full of spicy flavour. Unfortunately, that spicy flavour did not feel all that pleasant in my mouth. Something just wasnít "balanced" about the overall flavour.

Brutal one. The monks had done it good for ages. Minimal head, but beautiful amber color, the taste is very complex with the coriander. You can feel the high percentage of alcohol in the flavour...
