COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quadrupel is La Trappeís 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. Nose is sweet and smells like Juicy Fruit gum. Notes of cherry, bread, brown sugar, dried fruit, and alcohol come out. This is much, much better than I anticipated. Very nice. Clean and devoid of any problems. I would happily drink this anytime.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2005 pours a murky dark brown with a thin layer of head . yeasty sweet aroma of raisins. chewy dark fruit taste. creamy texture that is enjoyable. nice lingering bitter pepper finish. enjoyable brew, a little dry for my taste but nice none the less.11-17-04 7 3 6 2 13 ov 3.1 rerate 5-14-05. bought the bottle just for the glass. donít know why. i donít have room for more, but hell i needed to blow some cash on something i guess. so iíll rerate this puppy on a saturday morning while i watch season 1 of scrubs. pours dark amber with a white head that faded to a ring soon after i poured it. of course i had to spend a few minutes fighting the cork out. never had one that stubborn before, damn good thing iíve been working out. musty yeast and grapes and some floral notes as well. sweet up front taste like a wurthers candy. pepper comes in and leaves a dry powdery finish. a bit watered down apple and nutmeg is in here too, maybe not nutmeg, but some other spice, cinnamon maybe. a touch of alcohol is noticeable on the finish, but not to the point i would think this is a 10 percent beer. 7 4 7 3 14 ov-3.5

A fragile beer - have had it bad on more than one occasion, tending toward heavy esters - fluffy/creamy mouthful of mild dates and raisins and light spice when itís one. More often thinning and estery with a definite fusel flavor.

Label says Konings Haeven Quadrupel. Deep clear ruby copper color with a thick off-white head. Rich bready yeast, brown sugar, and some dark fruits (cherries). Lively carbonation with a full body. Starts sweet and ends a little less sweet, followed by a long bready aftertaste.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 Poured a brownish orange color with a small head. Not as carbonated as their triple i had prior to this. Aroma is sweet of apples, caramel, apricot, and bubble gum. Flavors of caramel, dark fruit, and alcohol. Some spice at the end. Medium bodied. RERATE: Very different this time. Hazy dark copper with thin off white head and plenty of floaters. Aroma of fruit, leather, cheese, and sugar. Flavors of spice, bitter, and fruity underneath with a dry finish.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Lovely deep orangish/ruby color with a colossal white head. Aroma of malt, barnyard, multiple dark fruits and berries, toffee, scotch, and cabernet. Tastes malty, fruity, and with great balance and complexity. We have a winner here, people! For my money, this one kicks Orvalís ass! This one just made it onto my Christmas list!!!
