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: FEB 13, 2007 11.2 oz Bottle - 2000: Sampled at 7-years-old. This stuff has held up very well. Deep brownish amber pour with a creamy tan head. Fruity aroma, slightly vinous. Lots of plummy notes, grapes, and a touch of sweet fig. There were slight hints of oxidation in the flavor, but still robust. Vinous qualities, fruity and sweet with hints of grapes, berries, wood, and roasty toffee notes develop late. A nice, fruity Quadrupel.

Mondial de la Bière de Montréal; Sorryyyyyy, this beer is way overated. This beer is maybe good to wake up or good for hunting in the winter, but thats it. It smells like ham, it taste like ham. If you like strong alcohol like Gin, Whisky, then you will like this beer. Its better than piss beer, but way overated.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2006 330ml bottle. Label says Koningshoeven. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thick white head. Aroma of apples, bananas, and yeast and malts. Creamy mouthfeel, tastes of fruit, malts, yeast, and a light touch of alcohol. Lingering taste of apples. Amazing beer.

Had it under the Koningshoven Quad label. Beer was a hazy medium yellow-amber color with an average-sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing head. The aroma was malty with a light note of cookie and moderate toasted grain; moderate note of herbal hop; yeasty with a light note of dough and a moderate note of cellar; moderate note of spicy alchs and a trace of damp cardboard. The flavor was heavily sweet, lightly acidic and lightly bitter with a long, lightly-to-moderately bitter finish. The body was light-to-medium, the texture was watery and the carbonation was lively. Light-to-moderate alcohol warmth.

A strong trappist ale indeed at 10% alcohol, yeasty and bitter, a good beer for the cold winter evenings up here in the Great White North.

Caramel color sets the tone for this beer. Brownish head, some lacing. Earthy, peachy, cane sugar aromas. Kind of a muddle, until you taste it, when everything comes together. Good bite of alcohol, lots of caramelly malts, molasses and pit fruit, and a sweet, but not so sweet, finish that lingers pleasantly. A unique beer that retains a lot of its compelling natural ingredients.

Bottled. Pours a slightly hazy red amber with a pillowy beige head. Sweet (very sweet) malty aroma, vaguely of fruits. Cloying taste, alcohol felt more in the throat than in the mouth, but it’s there, too. Sticky and syrupy but less so than some Doppelbocks (Doppelböcke? ;) ) I’ve had. Not a big fan.

Caramel colored head. Really clings to the glass. The aroma is strong, slightly fruity, and not especially pleasant (...or unpleasant). I feel the same about the flavour - it’s intense but not ultimately rewarding. The alcohol does not overpower the mouth but it does the head. My bottle is not called La Trappe, merely Konings Hoeven Quadrupel.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2006
Clay bottle. Amber coloured with a medium off-white head. A bit too sweet. Notes of earth, wood and citrus. Also slightly yeasty and a bit too high carb for me.
