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.

Fin (8172) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2006
330ml Bottle Picked up from the ’Dodgy Deli’ on the Cowley Rd, Oxford. Dark brown in colour which probably should have had a smaller head than the one I gave it with my careless pouring, crikey this is strong and yet the alcohol never tasted harsh. This is a lovely beer, wonderful fruitiness and spiciness, very rich and complex vanilla overtones also present, this was a very good find most impressed.

Bought it in a Koningshoeven 4pk with a Trappist Glass. This is the big daddy. Very strong! Dark nutbrown color. not much of a head. Maybe from the alcohol. Aroma of molasses, dark fruits like plums, prunes, figs, and dates. I recommend this Drupel!

Dark beer, smallish head (the girl could pour, thank estonia) with a rich malty flavour, with light hints of chocolate. A nice start to any day.

The aroma is of sugared dates. Overly carbonated and foamy feeling on the palate. As with other quads, you can tell that there is a high standard of quality applied but you can also tell that there are better non-Trappist versions out there as well.

750 Konings Hoeven bottle. pours a chesnut brown with a quickly dissapating, creamy head that left a little lace around the rim. nose is of roasted chocolate and caramel with a bit of dates and yeast. tastes nicely toasted with caramel, chocolate, semi-sweet fruits, and mild alchohol. pretty good.

Bottled. Amber color. Fruity aroma with toffee, melon and some alcohol. Full bodied and sweetish flavor with strange spiciness (cumin?), warming alcohol, toffee, melon and pineapple. Sweet finish with pineapple.

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.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 31, 2006
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.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2006
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.
