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.

750ml "Koningshoeven Quadrupel" version at the Bier Garden, Portsmouth, VA. Amber pour with a white head. Lots of fruit and bready scents in the nose. Fairly sweet, toffee and fruit. Some spiciness emerges as it warms. Solid quad.

Pours a hazy mahogany with a fluffy yellowish head that collapsed quickly. Alcohol is immediately evident in the aroma, followed by fruity and bready fragrances that are quite inviting. Medium body that is quite rich with a mouth coating feel. Complex flavors that start off sweet with dark brown suger, sweet dark fruit, and followed by the alcohol and then some spicy flavors. Finish is somewhat sweet, with a lingering stickiness, and just the slightest amount of bitterness.

Hazy gold, minimal head. Huge, sweet fruity aroma. Very malt dominated with an almost cloying sweet mouthfeel. Very high alcohol presence. Seems like a barley wine to me.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2007 Wow, I really like the smell and taste of this beer. It has heavy overtones of fruits in both. As previously stated, there is really no head to speak of, but that’s not really a quality I care about when dealing with a trappist beer. I enjoy and recommend this beer.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Bottle. Hazy amber color with minimal head. Fruity aromas and sweet citric fruit tastes with some notes of red fruit (plum, figue). Very nice and enjoyable beer.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUL 19, 2006
poured a amber-brownish mix with a tan head which had some retention. Aroma was a mix of bread, spicy, and chocolate malts and some alcohol. Taste was sweet but not overpoweringly sweet. Had some spicy hop notes almost like pepper and corriander. Nice alcohol presence throught out the glass. Really smooth and rich.

Koningshoeven label. Pours dark amber into a trappist glass. Off-white medium head with nice staing power. Jaegermeister notes -- fizzy and light with Jaegermeister coming through in the palate. Lasting alcohol finish.

jcr (2286) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Off-white head floating on top of amber pour. Subtle nose of fruit - apricot, plum - and coriander spice and alcohol and bready malts. Flavor dominated by sweet malts and alcohol warmth. In between are notes of overripe fruit, especially plum. Finishes slightly bitter and peppery and full of alcohol. Full body with syrupy mouthfeel and moderately long finish.

I actually think its a little light for a quadruple. But I don’t really mind that. The aroma is sweet and fruity with some spice. There is brown sugar, coriander, bananas, and yeast. The palate is a little thin. There is a nice malt aftertaste but the alcohol is not well hidden in this one. Also I detect a metallic element but overall it has a nice taste.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 Aroma is somewhat lacking, bit of caramel, mettalic, nutty. body is brown but a thick white head. Taste is very caramel oriented, with copper, and a bit of alcohol. Good Dutch brew, but not spectacular.
