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: JUN 4, 2007 750 ml oz bottle from a trade (big thanks to whoever sent this!). Says Konings Hoeven, NOT La Trappe on the label. I have no idea of the age...Pours a dark copper with a nice head that quickly evaporates to nothingness.Nose is full of fruity easters and belgium yeast. This starts and ends a bit sweet with some candy, caramel, peach, subtle bananna, berry and a tiny bit of tartness in the finish. A bit of heat as well. Body is medium, carbonation is low/medium. An almost average Belgium..

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - MAY 31, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2007 Koningshoeven Quadrupel on tap@O’Brien’s pub: Deep reddish brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty and fruity with a faint hint of banana. Flavor starts rich with dark fruit, port and the slightest hint of bubblegum finishing lightly dry and lightly bitter. Full bodied and velvety smooth with gentle carbonation. Much under-rated IMHO.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2007
Bottled. Hazy reddish amber with a rich fluddy tan-coloured foam. Sweet and yeasty aroma of banana, chocolate, licorice, spices, pears and alcohol. Full, warming and yeasty flavour of almobnds, cocoa, banana, anice and spicy, warming alcohol. Full-bodiede with a gentle carbonation. Sweet finidh of alcohol, banana, spices and licorice. Not as refined as it’s belgian brothers.

acearl (465) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 From a 12oz bottle. Garnet or dark amber hue with creamy tan head, good lacing, carmel malty smell, syrupy texture, dark, spicey, big flavor, full body, hint of nutmeg, lightly alcoholic, average duration, similar to a Chimay Blue and on par with any good Quad, a good nightcap beer. Can understand these monk agenda...Mmm.

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2007
From notes. Poured in a snifter glass this generated a massive 3+ finger rocky head. Unclear reddish brown color. Aroma: Faint. ‘Belgian’ yeast character, moderate malt, some alcohol, a little nuttiness. Flavor: Malt, a sharp edge and the same nuttiness from the aroma. Mouthfeel: Extremely full-bodied, almost viscous on the tongue.

Tried from tap at Stone Brewery. Caramel orange color. Perfect creamy head characteristic of Stone’s carbonation setup. Sweet, mellow. Great beer. A tiny hint of banana in the nose. Pretty drinkable. Great palate. I’ll have another.

I thought that only belgians could make good trappist beer, but during a trip to the Netherlands I tasted this beer and it was very good. The colour is amber and the taste is rich and complex.
