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.

750ml bottle courtesy of csbosox: Murky amber-brown at its darkest, golden-amber towards the edge of glass, small light tan head. There wasn’t a huge amount of pressure released when I popped the cork like I expected. Aroma: nice bready malts, fruity yeast, musty flowers, and just the smallest hint of citrus or lemon tartness. Plenty of carbonation despite the almost nonexistent "pop" after uncorking, but not too much that it takes over the taste. Medium-full bodied, sticky, sweet, slick in the mouth. Taste: alcohol soaked bread up front, lightly spiced, then the malts and yeast shine through showing off pear, plum, fruity & earthy yeast, caramel, pizza dough, light banana & clove, wholegrain bread. Finishes with a lasting spicy & sweet malt flavor in the mouth with a lingering taste of sweet grains.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2005
A bit syrupy and sour, with too much bitter in the finish for my taste. Alcohol is slightly noticeable, but seemingly drowned out by the molasses and sour taste. Average.

JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - APR 20, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2006 Very frothy head, it doesn’t go away- and nice lacing. Fruity/floral malty aroma and flavor. Strong alcohol after taste. - but nice .

JK (4860) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 19, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 Pears, malt, alcohol aroma. The aroma is dominated by fruit. Dark amber. The thin head doesn’t last long, but the carbonation does. Lots of sediment floating in this beer. Flavor is generally sweet. There is malt, more fruit, chalk. Dry finish. Sweeter and thinner than St. Bernardus or Westvleteren.

Dorqui (2127) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 16, 2005
(2002/2003) Dense, creamy and extremely persistent foam. Clear brown color, limpid and loads. Much bubbly. Determined and much flowery scent. Complex and sweetish . Strong taste, decided, much rich one. Notes of liqueur and yield mature. Longest persistence.

Tonight I had a LT Quad and a Rochefort 8. They are both good but I think that I much prefer the La Trappe. Full, fairly sweet, and very tasty. I don’t know if I have tried any that are any better. Yehaw!!!

Draught at Ølbaren. Reddish colour with a lasting off-white head, that makes laces. Sweet aroma with yeast, fruit and dried fruit. Nice sweet flavour with notes of dried fruit, yeast, muscavado, liquorice and spices.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - APR 7, 2005
(on tap at Ølbaren, both 2003 edit. and 2005 edit. Great idea guys, thanx)2005 edit: Clear, rubyred color. Some caramel and a LOT of banana. Somewhat soft mouth with plums and Pot Marigold. Sticky, canesugarish finish. Nothing compared to the 2003 edit: Hazy ruby color. Low carbonation and a mild taste of prunes, moscovado, elderflower og lime. A slow flowerish finish with great balnce of alcohol. Smooth longdrink
