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.

ArtificialCyst (152) - Szczecin, POLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Aroma: Sweet, toast, caramel, plum, raisins, fanny, quince, cherry, molasses, very pleasant, intensive. Appearance: Color is copper, head is dense, white, quiclky dissapears, seeable sparkling. Taste: Very sweet, some light phenolic notes, banana, caramel, quince, cherry, caramel, alcohol hidden, delicate clove, hint of herbal hoppiness. Palate: Finish is sweet, a bit astringent, body is full, carbonation is high. The finish should be more dry, also it is too much carbonated and generally it is so sweet that the sweetnes is floating out of my ears.

Dermi (892) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
75 cl, bottled. BB 06-2018. Pours clear quite bright red with a decent white head. Amazing lacing. Aroma: Banana, canned sweet fruits, peach, pear. Some notes of spices, cloves. Taste: Sweet pear flavours, some alcohol, spices and some bitterness. Notes of yeast, barnyard. Some banana, yet pear at first is much stronger to me in flavour. Complex flavours. Palate: Medium body, feels slightly dry. Sweet aftertaste, dried figs. Interesting quadrupel.

Nuvaa (5) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - OCT 29, 2015 does not count
Dried plum aroma, sweet. Very little alcohol warmness, but clearly felt. Made me feel extremely comfortable and nice

Savagesteeler (95) - Warszaw, POLAND - OCT 27, 2015
Aromat bananów, fenoli, karmelowy, słodki. Piwo bursztynowe, opalizujące ze słabą pianą pozostawiajaca mała warstewske. W smaku uderza po pierwsze typowa drożdżowość, fenole, słodycz, banan troche juz pomeiszany z goździkami i na finisziu cierpkość. Całą game smakowa psuje zbyt duze wysycenie, przez co jest słabo pijalne.

ljthiessen (903) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 26, 2015
On tap at Republic in Minneapolis. Cloudy amber pour, light colour for a quad, white head. Delicious fruity aroma, plenty of raisin and plum, dates. Taste is very rich and pretty sweet, lower carbonation. Not the best quad, but really solid.
