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.

This just doesn’t stand up to the La Trappe Tripel. The Quad is too medicinal/spicy, and the malt flavors aren’t as sweet. The 10% alcohol IS well hidden.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2002
The sampled bottle was from 1992. Redorange beer with a fruity nose. Lots of blueberries and raspberries. It´s huge and just keeps going, like a mix of The Green Giant and the Duracellbunny. The flavor is sweet with toffee and marsmallowtones.Fruity with a peppery tone and some sharpness. A true world class beer that definitely gets better by the years.

Sampling of the 1992 version in 2002: Dark amber. Aroma of berries and malt. Very malty, rich, bready, big toffee flavour. It has matured and developed better wonderfully, gone is the syrupiness, and you can’t notice the alcohol. Worth waiting for...

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2002
An interesting beer. Cloudy peach color with a medium sized head and a big spicy and yeasty nose. Lots of malts with apricot and light fruit flavors. Spicy with a bit of a dry finish. Interesting and quite enjoyable.

Good but can’t stand with the great trappist breweries. Smell molasses but only faintly. A very warming beer but tastes better when it is still cold. Gets an almost stale aftertaste at room temperature.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2002
Smells of mild molasses. Hazy peach colour, almost no head. Strong alcohol, plums, and sherry. Warming finish, (at 10%, I guess) Complex. Fantastic!

What is a quadruppel? Easy to drink even at its high alc content. Lacking in a special something...

Tastes just like the Trippel. You would not know it’s ’quadruppel,’ altho shouldn’t a quad be 4%?

Ligth brown. Nicely balanced aroma and taste. Only a hint of alcohol in the nose. Quite easily drinkable the strength considerd.

Delightful floral aroma. Tastes good. Sweet with a slightly bitter, dry finish. No hint of the high alcohol content. Very good.
