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.

spacecube (659) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2014
330ml bottle, pours a clear dark red brown with a bubbly off white head. Aroma is dark fruit, berries, marzipan, a bit of dark chocolate, rich and full bodied, the finish is short with a well balanced bitter finish. As it warms this beer tastes better and becomes more complex. A classic, excellent quad.

Pours dark amber with white, big head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits, plums, a bit of honey. Maybe a bit of bubble gum, not certain about though. Solid body with high carbonation. Alcohol is potent and gives a great warming sensation. Good, rich beer, although not really in my taste.

ABT_S54 (98) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 33cl in a La Trappe glass. Pours a quite bright orange colour with a white head. Powerful aroma of honeyed fruits (particularly orange) and alcohol. Flavour is dominated by sweetness and fruits - I much prefer an ABT style Quad. Very similar in style and execution to Gulden Draak 9000 although this being the original that is probably more of a testament to the quality of the La Trappe beer than coincidence. The alcohol is overwhelming and to me seems unnecessarily boozy.

Pours a murky chestnut with a creamy white head. Quite a lot of alcohol on the nose. Taste is yeasty.

rangamike (28) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear hazel with light, persistent head. Immediate taste was malt, fruit and bitterness, followed by banana and caramel. A complex beer and very enjoyable. Didnt notice the high ABV.

I love me a good quad... and this is a good one. Surprising bitter, but the classic fruitiness and slight sweetness in the finish... love it...

UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 Good beer purchased from LCBO in a 750ml bottle. good beer, dry fruits, warm finish, with 10% alc. volume, it is hidden rather well making it very drinkable.
