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.

Very little head but quite carbonated. Aroma is lovely, fresh, fruity. Taste is well balanced. Wouldn´t really guess the alcohol. Very drinkable beer. Definitely going to get some more.

Beaucoup de corps, un fort goût d’alcool et une saveur que seules les trappistes peuvent avoir. Elle tape mais très bonne.

Beers don’t get much better than this. Pours amber, no real head but good lacing. Sweet malty vanilla taste. And 10% alcohol! to boot!

Nice foam. Aroma, fresh fruit, banana, pineapple. Palate, very balanced, smooth, nice bubbles. Taste, banana, fruits, balanced, wheaty sweetness, taste is not long enough.

unclemike (2481) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 29, 2015
A very complex brew! Very fruity with a tone of banana and pineapple in the aroma. Slightly parfume flavoured which goes well with the strong alcohol flavour. Fine balance between the beautyful dark nut/orange colour and the expectations for the palate.

kingaugusta (22) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2015
Easily the best on-draft beer I’ve ever tasted. Pours brown with a quick brown head and a relatively light but sweet, typical-Belgian nose. The flavor is too complex to do it any real justice; suffice to say it’s rich and multi-layered and disappoints in no clear ways. World class.

Golden amber color and a coppery slightly cloudy tone that was poured in its beautiful owner bowl. Beige Cream with a dense foam of height about a finger, good consistency, but quickly dissipates. Mark the walls of the Trappist glass with beautiful ties. The Aroma is a sideshow. Salta nostrils bringing a sweet ripe banana tender, fowl in a burnt vanilla or sugar, or as a sweet beautiful walnut or perhaps a traditional brown glace Portuguese (made from nuts of course). Emerging shyly, but effectively could tell aromatic fans of a powerful dark malt drunk in caramel, dried fruit, raisins and fleshy plums. Taste brings in your body in a lively carbonation a revolution in his mouth and carries a sweet bitterness dry kind of bittersweet. With dark malts and caramel brown or perhaps a caramel sugar, caffeine has a light in the background. It is indeed your great fruity flavor, slightly sweet but never cloying, which becomes very complex, yet it is incredibly easy to drink. A delicious Panettone and light woody touch not get out of my mind. Certainly a Licorosa beer, velvety, leaving a finish of red fruit and a spicy light alcohol. Moreover, the powerful alcohol is present at the end of the sip and heat the throat or even the aftertaste. A happy cheating by hiding behind a much alcohol aroma and unique flavor. A remarkable character of beer and unique flavor that goes down smooth and tenacious. A classic Trappist!
