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.

Ho dovuto passare diversi pub per ruscire a trovarla, ne è valsa la pena ed è in assoluto una delle mie birre preferite.

Kolor miedziany, klarowne. Piana obfita, szybko opada, ale pozostawia gruba obraczke i niezle oblepia szklo. W aromacie na pierwszym planie wanilia i przyprawy, dalej syrop kandyzowany, karmel, czekolada, estry owocowe. W odczuciu polwytrawne, jest lekka owocowo-karmelowa slodycz, dosc wysoko wysycone. W smaku mamy powtorke z aromatu, lekko karmelowe, sporo owocowych estrow i syropu kandyzowanego, niestety takze lekko metaliczne, za to alkohol dobrze ukryty, zwodniczo lekkie i pijalne. Goryczka niska, ziolowa.

Draught at Yard House (Dedham, Mass). Goblet

I try not to rate beer at the bar/pub, so this is from memory from about an hour ago. My memory is crap, but I remember this being the best Belgian beer from the Yard House’s Belgian 6 sampler. I ordered a goblet of this after the sampler plate. The Quad was amazing. Aroma was somewhat sweet. Appearance was clear, amber, with white/tan head. Taste had an exceptional balance between sweet malts/sugar and bitter hops. Really enjoyed the hops on this, the bitterness was perfectly balanced with the malts/sugar. Nice and dry finish. Overall, wow, this was really, really good. Probably the best Quad that I’ve had in a while. No fruitiness like Ommegang Three Philosophers, just a straight up Quad.

The first impression when you pour it into the glass is a sweet dark fruit and chocolate smell, very nice. The taste is really good, soft and little fruity, even though it is maybe quite carbonated. In fact, it tastes better a few minutes after pouring it into the glass. Ann¡yway it is a very good beer which deserves to be tasted.

Donkeramberkleurig bier met mooie schuimkraag. Aroma’s van banaan, amandel, vanille. Smaak is moutig zoet, licht gebrand. Bitterige afdronk met een zoete nasmaak.
