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.

On tap in "La casa the la cerveza" in Madrid. Hazy brown colour with a nice creamy head. Aroma consists of caramel, some tropical fruits maybe, some candy sugar and belgiam yeast. Flavour also brings along oak, wood and a more presant caramel taste. It has good a bit sharp mouthfeel at first, but then it smoothens up soft, suiting carbonation. The alcohol is not notable in the aroma nor the flavour. I can sense some bitterness in the aftertaste, really good. Overall a top scoring beer in my opinion.

I’m new to triples and quads... But I know I like them. Sweet but not fruity. This is dark pour with a bubley head. Sweet caramel smell... And every thing you’d expect from a triple. It does have a like more of an ale flavor than you’d get from a trip and the best buy said he looked that better. I prefer the trip to this, but this was still very enjoyable... Give it a shot

Color ambra con schiuma beige di media persistenza. Aroma di malto e caramello. Superba bevuta, alcol molto evidente, ma in armonia con il dolce del malto. Leggeri sentori floreali. Carbonazione perfetta. Una birra dabbazia come dio comanda

330ml Bottle from Arendsnest Proeflokaal, Amsterdam (€6.00):
Great stuff from La Trappe here, this one really didn’t seem like a 10% beer at all & this was largely down to the fact that the beer was so smooth to drink & the alcohol was almost completely masked in both the taste and the smell. The taste was a sweet, slightly dry one that proved incredibly easy to drink with some great, dark fruity flavours balancing well with the caramel & dark malts; amazing drinking. I’m already hoping to get my hands on the barrel aged version now.

Surprising light for a quadrupel. Nice head. Carbonation is above average for the style. Too sweet and caramelish for me. I had enough after two sips. Not better than a leffe with added alccol.

Whatup14 (910) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
Bouteille 750ml. Couleur orange brûlé foncé opaque, mousse beige tenace laissant une dentelle évasive. Arôme de levure, malt caramélisé, alcool, fruits confits. Goût de malt caramélisé, caramel foncé, levure, légère amertume, cassonade. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen. Une quad un peu mince, mais savoureuse.
