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.

Tap at Delaney’s in New Haven. Proper glassware! Yeah Delaney’s! Has that definite Belgian yeasty aroma, but also corriander, clove, vanilla, (green?) raisin and other light fruits (banana, orange peel) and just a hint of rum. It looked gorgeous in it’s glass, decent head sat atop a somewhat hazy orange body. First sip is fruity and sweet, and you can’t really detect the alcohol at this point (dangerous) As it warms, it becomes a bit more astringent, but that’s nicely balanced by your tongue going numb. It finishes sweet and smooth with a slight dryness as it glides down your throat. Compared to other belgians, the aroma and flavor are a little light, but it’s still an excellent beer.

Bottle. A good head with generous bubbles, the body has an amber clear color. The alcohol is evident in the aroma, some spices, coriander, hops, orange peel. The taste is rich and round with well concealed alcohol. Balanced sweetness.

Lable as Koningshoeven. 75cl bottle. Some loose floaters, a few chunky lazy bubbles jumping...amber/brown...no real head, but some clinging lace. Aroma slight moist cork.musty, definite plum, raisin, grape, leather, slight alcohol behind it, but pleasing overall. Full, sweet body w/o obvious thickness...lingering...Flavor is set off by the sweet finish, and highlighted by the dark fruits & alcohol...madeira to an extent...complex sweetness a bit of clove and vanilla begins to come out in the nose now...and the sweetness is just right...not too much or too thick. Excellant beer. Late night sipper, elegant.

Orangy red with creamy off white head. Aroma has a bit of a fingernail polish character then some nice malts. Flavor is very malty and smooth with some great sweetness and roasty flavor. Large robust complex flavors. Bananna in the flavor and aroma.

More my style. In the strength of other trappist beers. Nice brown amber color with the smooth caramel strong creamy taste of brother brown ales but doesn’t have a signature like a Rochefort or Westvleteren. Available at Downtown Wine & Spirits in Somerville, MA

2001 vintage. This dark amber ale poured with a short tan head that dissipated quickly, eliciting a pleasant fruity aroma. The flavor is very full - fruity, creamy and slightly carbonated. Aging has caused the flavor to be richer and more mellow than a fresh bottle I had recently.

The aroma is huge - peach, bubble gum , banana and sweet candy have a great and interesting interplay. The body is full and nicely chewy. Candied plums and figs dominate the body - which is velvety. Great stuff.
