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.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 Pears, malt, alcohol aroma. The aroma is dominated by fruit. Dark amber. The thin head doesn’t last long, but the carbonation does. Lots of sediment floating in this beer. Flavor is generally sweet. There is malt, more fruit, chalk. Dry finish. Sweeter and thinner than St. Bernardus or Westvleteren.

(2002/2003) Dense, creamy and extremely persistent foam. Clear brown color, limpid and loads. Much bubbly. Determined and much flowery scent. Complex and sweetish . Strong taste, decided, much rich one. Notes of liqueur and yield mature. Longest persistence.

Tonight I had a LT Quad and a Rochefort 8. They are both good but I think that I much prefer the La Trappe. Full, fairly sweet, and very tasty. I don’t know if I have tried any that are any better. Yehaw!!!

Draught at Ølbaren. Reddish colour with a lasting off-white head, that makes laces. Sweet aroma with yeast, fruit and dried fruit. Nice sweet flavour with notes of dried fruit, yeast, muscavado, liquorice and spices.

(on tap at Ølbaren, both 2003 edit. and 2005 edit. Great idea guys, thanx)2005 edit: Clear, rubyred color. Some caramel and a LOT of banana. Somewhat soft mouth with plums and Pot Marigold. Sticky, canesugarish finish. Nothing compared to the 2003 edit: Hazy ruby color. Low carbonation and a mild taste of prunes, moscovado, elderflower og lime. A slow flowerish finish with great balnce of alcohol. Smooth longdrink

As good of a beer as one is ever going to find. Deep, multi-layered fruit and caramel flavors, very mild hoppiness, light carbonation, translucent amber color. I love this beer.

very light tan creamy head, does not last long. cloudy dark orange ruby color with lots of yeast chunks. aroma is raisin, plum, caramel malt, light alcohol. flavor starts dark fruity sweet, like plumped raisins in rum. bready malty middle then slight alcohol and faint banana. very light hop bitterness, but balanced with a citrusy nip - like orange and grapefruit. juicy mouthfeel!

had this in a bottle in amsterdam at amendnest. huge nose on this thing....most noteable was sweet molasses, maple, bourbon, dark fruit and maybe some alcohol. nice fig and roasted choc malts push a warm alcohol feel. pretty big beer and definately the nicest of the la trappe products.

Pours a hazy amber color with dark orange highlights and a thin offwhite head. Aroma of fruits (including raisins and plums) and alcohol, there’s some sweetness that can be felt too. The flavor is very similar: fruits (raisins and plums), alcohol and a sweet finish. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. It’s a good beer, definitely the best of La Trappe.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2005 750ml bottle. 51°. Served in my Duvel glass. Not sure of the date, bottle says K28K1. Pours orangy brown with a moderately small off white head. As the head receeds, it leaves foam dots and when swirled, the beer fully coats the glass. Aromas are bananas and spice. The taste is the same, bananas and (blow, just kidding) spice that transitions to a slight alcohol taste then to a mildly hoppy finish. There seems to be a slight feeling of alcohol in the finish, but it doesn’t take away from the experience. The finish is malty and yummy. Mouthfeel is full and has a substantial weight. Really nice.
