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.

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.

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2007
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.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2007
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 (5785) - 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.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2007
A molasses-colored ale with a lot of visible debris. Very flavorful with a carbonated prunish flavoring.

mike_77 (5437) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2007
Amber-red colour. Aroma has toasted, biscuity grains and sweet, sugary fruit. Flavour has a lot of candy sweetness and fruit that becomes a little bitter on the aftertaste.

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - SEP 20, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2008 22 oz bottle corked and caged the cork was a pain to get out Poured into my Ommegang chalice produced a fingers worth of white lace that goes to a lace on top of a light tea colored body with some suspended partials of yeast Aromas of wine comes from the bottle a nice fruity smell as well but you can smell the alcohol as well The taste is the same as the aroma sweet fruit along with a light spice bitter Not as full as I like my quads more of a medium mouthfeel with a alcohol warmth in the end Its an alright Quadrupel not one of the best but drinkable Serving type: bottle
