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.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy, bubbly orange-amber with a large long-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma’s sweet and fruity with sweet malt, yeast and alcohol. Very nice flavour of sweet malt, lots of dark fruit, yeast, some caramel, candi sugar and a slightly boozy, lightly bitter finish. Medium to full bodied. I quite enjoyed this, very tasty and somewhat easy to drink for it’s 10%. A very good Quad!

probstblueribbon (3652) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2007
33 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep red-copped, clear, large off-white head. Aroma: Big, crunchy malts, plenty of dried fruit, light minty herbals, sort of an odd vegetal woodiness, brown sugar and molasses; lightly nutty, a touch floral, touches of esters. Palate: Full-ish body, syrupy, soft effervescence. Flav.: Huge deep maltiness, brown sugar and molasses, lots of dark dried fruits, woody and slightly alcoholic (only slightly??); some cherries; quite sweet, but it works with the bitterness and slight tang; a fair bit of alcohol on swallowing; leaves light peach/apricot and vanilla behind.

The runt of the Trappist litter, this beer is nonetheless gigantic.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2007
Nose of fruits and apricots. Pours a deep copper colour. A foaming head endures. The taste if raisins and plums. Body is medium and the sweetness lingers to a mildly dry finish. A good beer.

Chestnut with a great head. Raisins, plums, candy sugars, figs apples, caramel, and quiet coffee characterize this brew in both smell and taste. There is a peppery warmth from the alcohol, and this quad has a great structure and depth.

750 ml bottle labeled Koningshoeven: Pours a nice copper color with a cirrus-like tan head. Huge belgian yeast aroma with a bit of fruity sweetness and some banana notes. Vinous taste, almost doughy with a raisin backdrop. Somewhat dry mouth feel, perfectly carbonated. Good stuff

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Bottle, lots of sweet dark fruits, Prune, raisin and cranberry. A bit of bread and citrus. Sweet, flavor, alcohol is very noticible, a bit of sourness, warming, yeast is not very dominate as in some quads. Plenty of rich dark fruit but not as much rich dark roast as others. Not a bad brew similar to drinking prune juice with some vodka in it. Quite a bit better than the dubble.

nuplastikk (5678) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Very detectable high alcohol presence. First tastes are cognac-like, sweet and strong. Mellows out a little after the first few sips. Pruny, pungent fruit tastes. A nice slow sipper, i would’ve assumed the alcohol percentage a tad higher than 10% by the taste.
