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.

Foerdifuxx (126) - Franconia, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2016
Hazy amber coloured beer with a big, medium-lasting, creme-coloured head. Aromas of white wine, caramel, yeast, almond, orange peel, some alcohol and some floweriness. Sweet malty, wheaty in taste with a bit of bitter almond and orange lemonade. Late ripe banana in finish together with warming alcohol. Heavy body, fizzy carbonation, creamy texture. Less round than other trappists i know.

A dark, complex and full bodied quadrupel. It has nice sweet and bitter tones, that go on in the aftertaste.

Mep3222 (1044) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Aroma of candy sugar, figs, clove, Belgian yeasty banana and a bit boozy. Taste is the same. Slight candy sugar sweet but not overly sweet. Fig dates and raisin flavors. Doesn’t taste too boozy. Well done quad. Not too sweet and not too malty for a quad. Good balance. Solid beer and really good but nothing I can say bad about it, but also something missing that keeps me from thinking it is great. Prefer st bernardus, but this is still very a very solid quad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nez peu riche, aromes d’alcool et de raisins je distingue un arome de banane . Belle couleur ambrée. La mousse tient assez longuement. En bouche, la bière est un peu liquoreuse, assez proche du vin à nouveau. Elle est finement amère, avec de de gout de malt et un gout de pomme. La touche finale est persistante et peu amère mais agréable

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2016 Belle couleur orange ’originale’, mousse abondante retombant lentement, arômes subtils (raisin etc). En bouche, cette bière donne une impression de "plénitude", très équilibrée et pleine d’autres choses que je ne sais pas exprimer. Mais je trouve cette quadruple vraiment digne d’une trappiste dans les meilleures belges ! :-) En fût : Couleur: orange clair Arômes pharmaceutiques peut-être l’éther?, caramel en première impression. Très rond en bouche, moelleux, très belle mousse un peu épaisse Goût de caramel et de chocolat noir, très houblonné Seulement 4/5 pour le fût ! :-(

Para mi gusto el gusto a regaliz inunda en conjunto de esta cerveza. Demasiado caracteristico dicho sabor.

30 cl bottle, served in trappist chalice. Poured dark amber with a one finger white head. Aromas of banana, vanilla, raisins, citrus. Tastes of again a lot of banana, then vanilla, orange, cloves, raisins, citrus, hops, alcohol, caramel. A medium body and bittersweet finish. Overall a pretty good, sweet tasting quadrupel.
