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.

Gylden brun litt tåkete med høyt beige skum. Karamell, kandissukker og røde bær. Fyldig, søt karamell, frukter og alkoholsødme i smak. Medium + kullsyre.

Very fine beer sugary and sweet no bitterness but a little too simple for me lack of authenticity.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2015 Butelka. Bardzo bujna, drobnopecherzykowa, biala piana, opadajaca dosc powoli do obraczki, troche zostajaca na szkle. Przejrzyste, opalizujace, o barwie cieplego bursztynu, miodu, dosc jasnej jak na styl. W aromacie troche alkoholu, duzo owocow dosc zroznicowanych, zarowno suszonych jak i swiezych (banany, sliwki, wisnie, winogrona, rodzynki, brzoskwinie), rowniez slod, rowniez drozdze - w aromacie troche jak dubel tylko hmmm... szlachetniej? ;) W smaku rowniez duzo owocowosci nieco kwaskowatej (zestaw analogiczny do tego w aromacie) slodowosci, drozdzowosci, troche karmelu, troche miodu. goryczka niska. slodki. w ustach niczym szampan (to poniekad tez kwestia charakteru wysycenia, dosc wysokiego zreszta), tyle ze calkiem pelen, tresciwy. Ma sie ochote na kolejny lyk. alkohol - wszak nie niski - w smaku genalnie ukryty. Wysoka klasa, do ktorej niewatpliwie warto wracac. 7/4/9/5/17 -> 4.2

Update 12.01.2015 - Butelka, warka do 09-2017. Jeszcze intensywniejsza owocowosc, nieco bardziej slodka. Co w efekcie poprawia odbior calosci. Jestem fanem. 8/4/9/5/18 -> 4.4

Update 22.01.2015 - Butelka, warka do 02-2016. Mam wrazenie wyzszego wysycenia i slodyczy - nie wiem, czy to kwestia dluzszego lezakowania w butelce czy po prostu warki - 8/4/9/5/18 -> 4.4

Tap@tuulensuu. Amber color with a silky white head. Aroma has yeast, caramel, raisin and almonds. Taste is a bit bitter but has a long sweet aftertaste. Full of flavors like ripe fruits, nuts, caramel and some spices. Nice full mouth feeling but still very drinkable.

Good flavor, sweetness gradually comes to aroma and taste a bit of alcohol, but well

Teran (83) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JAN 6, 2015
Excellent nose, noble and distinctive. Cloudy mahogany, first class color, light beige head. Winter beer, but if you offer me a bottle during sometime - no problem at all! Complex, but yet shy liquid, restrain to shout its quality, which is so nice quality by itself. You can almost chew the taste. Gorgeous!

Aromat: typowo belgijski, estrowy, lekko bananowy, również karmelowy. Ogólnie bardzo intensywny. Dość mętne, złote. Piana początkowo wysoka, szybko opada do niskiej (ale nie zerowej), pozostaje na szkle. Smak również "belgijski", estrowy, owocowy, wyraźnie słodowy. Wyczuwalny alkohol, ale dobrze ułożony. Goryczka niska. Dość wysokie wysycenie i szlachetnie rozgrzewające odczucie alkoholowe, gęste.. Ogólnie piwo wybitnie degustacyjne i godne polecenia.

At Mort Subite Cafe in Brussels. Pours amber with a thick white head that laces the glass. Fruity aroma with banana, cloves, and caramel. Tastes of dark fruits, malty, boozy, and finishes slightly dry.
