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.

Sample on tap @ Vintage Estates. Pours a light caramel color with a thin white ring. Aroma is sweet and tart. Flavors is similar with a touch of caramel. Fairly smooth and enjoyable. Hides the alcohol well. Nice balance.

Bobson (72) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle @ Buitenlust with Thompson. Smells quite hoppy and herby. Looks somewhat dark but consistent with a smallish foamy head. Taste is strong with herbs, some hops and a sight bit of sweet in there from dried fruit but overall well balanced. Overall, a very solid beer I?d be happy to drink more regularly.

Nice surprise for us, because the night... I love you ! Palate... but almost... I’m not satisfied by the appearance at all, nice golden look but (Lancaster, Lol) I prefer the red auburn look... As you can read, it’s a very strong beer (sorry for that !)

0,33 liter fles. Thuis gedronken. Raar dat ik deze LaTrappe niet eerder getest heb. Dit is een lekkere biertje.

Bottle at home. Two year old bottle. Has a deep amber color with a huge khaki head. Sweet aroma of dried fruit, Belgian yeast, banana, almonds brown sugar, heather, paint thinner and some chocolate. The flavor follows up with more sweet tones of brown sugar, cake, dried fruit and warming alcohol in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. A well-balanced and tasteful quad. A little sweet but very nice.

Dark blood orange color with a creamy cap of gorgeous golden foam. Rich complexity of a good quadrupel nose. Raspberries and blackberries. Raisins. It overflows with dark malt and smells almost as much like concentrated black and red raspberries as Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock. The flavor profile also contains spiced raisins and plums swimming in dark caramel and melted chocolate bars. As it warms, I can appreciate leather and earthy hops. It’s definitely on the sweet side of things, but I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s double digit ABV so there is a hint of alcohol on the nose. My favorite is its mouthfeel. It’s liquid velvet and very silky. Probably the best mouthfeel of the beers I’ve had

Bouteille. Nez malté (caramel toffee sucré), assez fruité (raisins, bananes, prunes, poires ), sucré (gomme balloune, caramel doux), légèrement épicé (clou de girofle) et assez alcoolisé. Ronde en bouche. Goût fruité (raisins, prunes et très léger de bananes et de cerises noires) présent tout le long de la gorgée auxquels se rajoute d’un goût malté (caramel toffee sucré), de levure (gomme balloune) et épicé (clou de girofle et très léger de poivre) et finalement suivi d’une chaleur d’alcool assez présente. Arrière-goût comprenant une légère aigreur fruitée (prune, raisin) et une légère amertume d’alcool. [notes 2005]
