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.

thirstyrabbit (1742) - Tallinn, - DEC 3, 2012
Small bottle. Opaque amber/orange body with a medium head. Sharp aroma of raisins and hairspray - this is not a good start. Taste is obviously dominated by alcohol because the body is so light. "Full" and "mild" would be the opposite words to describe this beer. Overly boozy taste of figs and candies. Not enjoyable to me at all - the Dubbel was thin too but at least it was reasonably balanced.

Overtuigend zoete geur, gevolgd door een even duidelijke volle smaak waarin zeker de banaan duidelijk naar voor komt. Zeer zachte afdronk met heel subtiele bitterheid. Topbiertje! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grumbo (1365) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle from slijterijhetfust.nl. Pours auburn brown with an initially large beige colour head. Aroma of malt, toffee, chocolate, banana, dark fruit, and light spice. Fairly heavy sweetness, mild bitterness, touch of sour. Medium/heavy body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Finishes with alcohol edge, warming, with lasting sweetness and sour edge. Lovely.

One of my favourites. Pours a dark caramel colour with plenty of thick head. Rich, sweet flavours with a hint of bitterness. Mild aroma that mirrors taste.

330ml bottle. Hazy amber colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma: rich malt, dried fruits, spices, yeast, hint of banana, vanilla. Taste: same as aroma- sweet, rich malt, dried fruits, spices, yeast, warming alcohol. Mostly sweet with a slight bitterness at the end. Soft-moderate carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Excellent.

Butelka, spodziewałem się szału po trapistach jednakże ten quadrupel okazał się zwyczajny. Taki sobie.

kaserov (184) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 19, 2016
Color ámbar turbio con capa de espuma de un blanco amarillento de menos de un dedo de grosor (no mucha retención, aunque no llega a desaparecer del todo). Algo de carbonatación, pero mínima (más presente en boca por su burbujeo típico). Aroma frutal (como de fruta machacada), fresco, y alcohólico. Sabor también frutal, con predominio posterior del dulzor de las maltas (no capto lúpulo) y con un regusto final alcohólico muy placentero. Amargor no tiene, como dice en la descripción. Muy buena opción para una Quadrupel (La Trappe no suele fallar).

Amber colour, big head. Strong bananas and clove aromas. Spicy finish, low bitterness, very sweet. Alcohol hidden. Very good
