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.

Bottle from Halftime. Going to compare this again in a year to compare how it ages. Pours a amber capped by a nice foamy head with amazing retention. Lots of visible carbonation. Nose is ripe banana, burnt sugar, and booze. Taste is similar with the addition of dark fruit, perhaps plum is most evident. Medium bodied, buy very creamy mouth. YUM!

Grumbo (1363) - 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 (174) - 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).

It pours dark amber with a light tan head. It produces plenty of lacing. It has a sweet malt aroma with caramel, plums, and dried cherry. The flavors are highlighted by a burst of fruity esters with the plums the most noticeable. There are also some spices with dried cherry and caramel. There is some moderate alcohol warming. It has a moderately full body that produces a sweet finish with a bit of bitterness. Overall this produces a burst of fruity esters highlighted by the plums with a complex malt mixture that has a pleasant sweet finish with tinges of bitterness throughout the taste.
