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: SEP 18, 2008 Pours a nice caramel brown color with light carbonation. Very sweet but goes down easy. The alcohol content is totally hidden. Subtle spices add to the sweel fruity taste.

DarkMagus (504) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Dark golden amber color. Sweet malty, sugary aroma. Preseence of caramel, red grapes, apples, spices, and a bit of pepperiness. Rich, fruity flavorwith caramel, rasins, plums, apples, and a spicy peppery alcoholic aspect to it. Very soft and silky mouthfeel. Pretty good--worth drinking but perhaps not really a competitor with other Trappist quadrupels.

Absolutely fantastic Quad, my 2nd favorite. Aroma of cookies, brown sugar, and dates. Smooth, soft alchol in the taste with some dark sugar sweetness, prunes, toasted bread in the mouth. Some spicy yeasty notes as well. Very complex.

A very nice Quad. Candied sugar and estery fruity goodness. Shit, it was a rough night. Sandwich this in between a Triple, Behemoth, and a few more big beers and you have a night of bliss. This was just decent compared to a lot of the beers. But it was a pretty fantastic decent.

grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2007
pretty good, poured reddish brown with a nice creamy head. Alittle bit over powering with alcohol. Im sure it will be much better with age. Still a very good beer. Im impresed

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2007
Mid to dark red-brown beer with candied sugar nose and one or two finger tann and white head. Quite sweet with a mild funk that didn’t linger too long. Prevalent alcohol heat. Decent finish effervescent with sweet fruits, but not as amazing as I would have liked from a Trappist ale.

Bottle: Pours a murky brown with an amber base and a light tan head. Aroma is malty in the grain or hay direction with a definite sweetness to it. Full soft body with the right amount of punch to it. Flavor is somewhat sweet with a definite herbal aspect and a bit of wood. There is also an earthy aspect that is not too strong, but present. A good beer all around.

the candy of all beers!!! candied sugar wrapped in complex ester-laden, warming alcohol bliss!!! enticing, intense flavors and aromas of cherry cola and fresh apples with the underlying, earthy, mysterious hint of a monastery cellar and the yeasts that proliferate on grains therein(and no, i did not pour out the sacred yeast settled at the bottom of the bottle)...a complex amalgam of flavors that have to be experienced to be believed...a truly remarkable beer that i feel exemplifies the style like no other...

chicagobears (449) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2007
UPDATED: APR 19, 2007 11.2oz. bottle. Pours reddish brown with creamy head. A bouquet of fruit and cream. Complex flavors of plum, raisins, dates, tangerine and apricots. Its a bit young tasting as the alcohol is hot. I’m sure saving these for a couple years could highlight the complexity even more and mask the alcohol better. Really nice beer though.
