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.

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, - NOV 14, 2012
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.

Mahognybrun med fint fast vitt skum. Doftar sött, kryddor, honung och farinsocker. Smaken omedelbart bred, mycket söta smaker med dominerande dadel. Eftersmaken dock tämligen tunn. Sötma och kryddor ligger kvar en stund.

batupata (26) - FINLAND - JUL 14, 2016
Pours a amber red and hazy beer with almost nonexistent head. Aroma is dried fruits, plums, malty sweet with some caramel. Taste is pretty full, sweet and mildly bitter with notes of dried fruits and alcohol. Carbonation is quite heavy, probably a little bit too heavy in my opinion, but otherwise the body is almost perfect. Overall very enjoyable strong ale.
