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.

Bottled somewhere in the beginning of 2011, this brew has a really enticing aroma. It is full of caramel, spices and alcohol. Taste is sweet but not cloyingly so. Alcohol warmth is really subdued and makes for a dangerously drinkable beer. Balance is toward the malt side but it may be because of the age on the bottle. A+

Copenhagen 28/2 2015. 75 cl bottle. Gift from colleagues - a fine one. Pours hazy amber with white head. Dissipates to thin lacing almost immediately. Aroma is tinged with alcohol - holding 10 % - that's not surprising but supplemented with ripe fruity sweetness. Carbonation is a little soft. Taste is rather intense and strong. Spicy and yeasty. Strong alcohol notes. A fine Belgian specimen.

Light for the alcohol content. Well balanced malt & yeast tastes. A hint of dried fruit & spice with a concentration on the clean taste. Excellent. Rated by BrewTom

Cerveza con una bonita espuma, cerveza con 10 grados de marcado regusto alcohólico es una cerveza Quadruple que deja un sabor muy intenso en boca, el alcohol no está muy bien integrado y se nota demasiado , cerveza para probar una vez, mejor la doble o la Triple de esta misma cervecera

weordie (204) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Pours a ruby red with a thin white head that settles in the middle. Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. Quite a malty backbone, cinnamon on the tip and a hint of port.

baraciisch (2143) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... 1995 Vintage enjoyed in Antwerp... Brown caramel in color, slight white foamy head... Aroma is powerful, very nutty in character... Flavor is amazing, not sweet but nutty, very easy to drink, alcohol content is amazingly well concealed from aging... Palate is extremely neutral, not bitter, not sweet, but kind of nutty... Very interesting beer, intriguing how this has aged...

Head disappears to a durable ring. Aroma is very close to witbier (sic!) and the beer tastes lighter than it actually is. It’s warming and of sophisticated mouthfeel. In a blind test I’d rather say it’s tripel than quadrupel.
