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.

Cellar’s Tasting. I’m so glad this is back in town! Never had a chance to try it the first time out and now I get it for free at a tasting. What could be better? Dark brown color with a medium tan head. Nice aroma of malt with a bit of hop bitterness. The taste is really the same. It’s not a ton of different flavors blending into one, but a simple strong malt taste that’s lightly hopped. Not hugely special, but very well made.

KnutAlbert (6349) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2006
Bottled, bought in the Netherlands. Fine brown ale, lasting rocky head, with lots of carbonation. Too much alcohol flavour, but there are lots of nice dried fruit, cherry and other goodies here too. Almost there, but not quite my type of ale.

Radek Kliber (6589) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 20, 2006
Bottle (Volo) Fine haze, amber brown, very fine medium crown (3+) Solid, full bodied quad with highly drinkable palate. Light earthy touch with heavy malt base. Alcohol noticeable but well build in. Pleasure to drink. This ale shows the way to others how to make 10 % ale that is fun to drink.

Svesse (6757) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2006
(Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm, 17 Nov) Dark amber colour with small, brief head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of dried apricots and underlying sweetness. Slightly closed. Fruity and spicy taste with dried fruit and apricots. Full body, rather sweet, with a spicy finish. Alcohol and sweetness shining through a tad too much. Nice though, and very warming.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2006
30cl bottle pours a toffee colored brown into a trappist glass. The aroma is sweet with rasins and plums, with small hints of alcohol and a little yeast. the flavor is lacking in the hop area. It does have a rich malty depth but it lacks balance. nice palate that coats the mouth and tickles the tongue. Good beer, but doesn’t compare to lots of other quads.

bobaidan (523) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Pours a murky dark amber with a medium head. Aroma is a pleasant blend of raison, plum, banana and spice. Body is medium with mild carbonation. The flavor has a strong alcohol presence, with sweet fruit making an appearance. The finish is mostly spice. A very good sipping beer.

Tranquillity (1445) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle. Aroma of deep cherry, oak and walnut. The is some foam left in the glass, and the colour is hazy mahogany. The taste includes oak and grapes. It’s quite dry, but it could be a lot stronger. The finish has a warmingly alcoholic touch to it, which raises the grades for this one.

altonbrownd (3710) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Bottle at home. A good quadrupel. A sweet taste, with lots of fruit flavors in evidence. Also bitter. Doesn’t hide its alcohol content too well. Bit strong kick at the end.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2006
Bottle. Colour is dark-golden. Slightly creamy like thick head or though it felt very fizzy carbonated. Aroma is very candy and sweet, some notes of banana, dry fruit, yeast, apricot and maybe even marzipan. Body medium-full. Flavour is sweet with slight bitterness to it. Smooth sweet finish.
