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.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2009 Rerate. 2004 version, enjoyed in october 2009.
Had this at The Wildeman, Amsterdam.
Pours ruby-red, impressively clear. Sublime, creamy, off-white head. Totally impressive duration. Aroma has raisins, plums, yeast, lightly vinious, caramel, liqourice. Soft carbonation, impressive creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has a little cellar-notes, raisins, caramel, sweetness, winegums, pear, raspberries, toffee, vinious, plums and marzipan. World class!

Bottle @ Café Jos, Nijmegen. Pours a dark redish amber with a thin fizzy head the settles as a few bubbles along the edges of the glass. Aroma is not as powerful as expected, but sweet and with a good dose of dried fruits. Nice full and slightly oily mouthfeel. Flavour is equally sweet, prunes, raisins, fruit, berries and very complex.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 Sticky, smooth and cakey. Leaning more towards the English Barley Wine camp than the monasteries of Belgium. Clear chestnut capped with fine, tenacious froth. Enticing, candy-dipped snout rubbed in treacle and christmassy dark fruits. Really smells the business. Banana cake, golden syrup, figs and brandy richness balanced by a warming, medicinal hint in the finish. And finish you it will if you’re not careful. Big, hypnotic Dutch monk wielding a velvet-cushioned sledgehammer. Watch out.

Found this in Florida so I had to give it a shot. Pours out a light brown/amber color with a fluffy slightly off white head. Aroma of raisin, banana, and some yeast. Nice full mouthfeel. Flavor is dark fruit, raisin, plum and yeast. Very smooth for a beer of this ABV. Well done

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2007
From bottle : Pours a dark clear copper color, with a big white foamy head. One of the best aromas that i have smelled, raisin, banana, some spiceyness, it is great. A sweet taste, with a little bitterness at the end, with some banana flavor at the end too. Feels somewhat thick, not to thick, but thick, on the palate, and goes down very nicely.

marcbé (86) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2007
Pours a dark but clear copper color, with a thin white head. Soft nose of plum, raisin and banana, some alcohol is percertive in the end. Fizzy but creamy in texture, it taste like a banana and chocolate cake. Avery soft bitterness came in the finish. I can’t taste any alcohol. Warming!!!

Poured from a 1-pint-9.4-fl.oz. bottle. Nice hazelnut color and fruit aroma and flavors: apple, golden raisin, apricot, etc. matched with spice. There is a yeasty, bread dough quality with a slight hoppy edge. Big malts and an alcohol flavor. Frankly, there are trappist beers that hide alcohol better, but this is still better than most.

Very fruity aroma.. pours with a thick white head that lingers on... very thick texture with plenty of alcohol... doesn’t hide alcohol either... taste is mildly fruity with a bitter finish...

Strykzone (6643) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Purchased as Konings Hoeven Quadrupel. What a beer! Amazing amount of malt and fruit in both flavor and aroma. Plenty of alcohol as well. It feels thick and almost syrupy in the mouth. The large amounts of fruit and alcohol give a brandy feel. This would be a great beer with on a cold winter night with a fire in the fireplace. This beer is bold, unpretentious, and quite delicious.

This is my least favorite of the Trappist Quads. (so far). It isn’t a bad beer at all but is kind of lacluster when compared to other beers like it.
