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.

Si presenta di un torbido colore ambrato carico; la schiuma è buona e abbastanza persistente. Al naso, oltre che all’alcool e il caramello è possibile apprezzare altri profumi, come frutta candita (albicocca, mela, pesca), frutta rossa (ciliegie), marzapane e sentori fruttati. Il corpo non è così pieno come la gradazione alcolica poteva far immaginare; è poco carbonata, con una consistenza oleosa. Al gusto domina il dolce, con zucchero di canna, marzapane, uvetta, prugne, frutta sotto spirito. Un bel finale discretamente secco evita la saturazione da zuccheri, lasciando un tiepido retrogusto etilico e fruttato.

Appearance: (poured into a Chimay Chalice) pours a two finger thick, creamy, off-white head, slowly settles to half a finger of head, body is a hazy dark nutty brown-red. Aroma: boozy, rich dark fruits, vinous, malt, roasted malt, hints of vanilla, apricots, plums, raisins, nuts, brown sugar, candi, biscuits, bread, caramel, hints of vinegar Palate: Thick, chewy, lively carbonation yet creamy. Taste: Rich, dark fruits, apricot, malty, boozy, slight bitterness, raisins, yeast, chocolate malt sprite like finish with hints of orange. Overall: A gorgeous, rich complex dark fruity boozy beer with a fair amount of yeast. Sweet and vinous, elements of it remind me of cognac, particularly the boozy rich fruitiness.

Robe ambrée, très légèrement opaque. Saveurs de banane et de caramel dominantes. Arrière goût très fruité, avec des notes de miel. Très longue en bouche. On ne sent vraiment pas les 10° d’alcool. Une excellente trappiste.

Whatever you mean about my rating I do not care ;) The bottle has dark pieces swimming inside in it (proteins?) Honey hazy colour and no foam. Bougth 11/14 and best before is 6/16. Aroma...not sure pears maybe...sweet fruits.Taste like sweet pear and other fruits. Caramel malts. Alcohol is well hidden but could not drink more bottles.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Bottle from my supermarket. One of my favourite Trappist! Great amber colour (Aged version draught Quercus is better than this one)
