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.

Old rating rerated 05.06.2014, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet fruity, dried fruits, yeast, grass, banana, citrus, almond cake, bubblegum. Taste is slightly sweet boozy, sugar, grass, alcohol, yeast, dried fruits, hay, almond essence. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel, high carbonation. Nice enough.

Bottle. Pours really nicely, color is hazy amber (little darker), beautiful foam head that sticks to the glass. Aromas are hearty but sweet, mostly fresh apples (Jonagold), hint of dried apricots, generall smell of spices. A deep whiff also reminds of hairspray, due to the alcohol (little boozy). Not overly complex, but very nicely executed. Taste starts fruity and creamy, mild peppers, you can feel the alcohol build up in the mouth. Nice experience. As the alcohol swells the taste develops into a faint but discernible cherry-like sweetness. Beautiful and very well balanced. Aftertaste is apples again. Warmth from the alcohol combines nicely with the aftertaste. Absolutely nothing wrong with this one, would gladly have another!

Akatyzja (59) - POLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Kolor bursztynowy. Piana beżowa, głośno syczy przy nalewaniu, bardzo szybko opada. Aromat mocno owocowy: śliwka, wiśnia, jabłko, banan, trochę jakby fermentujące owoce oraz karmelowa słodycz i odrobina nut kwiatowych. Smak na początku przypomina mocne wino, dużo dojrzałych owoców oraz słodycz, w trakcie i na finishu mocno wyczuwalny alkohol, który jest dość dobrze wkomponowany. Wysycenie wysokie, faktura nieznacznie oleista. Dobre, mocne piwo, doskonale rozgrzewa.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo. Colour of dark honey, slightly cloudy with foamy white head. Aroma of malt with sweet fruit, apricot. Medium body, slightly creamy. Fruit tastes linger alongside the alcohol and malt, with raisins, plum and berries. Lasting peppery finish.
