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.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pours a medium copper color with a two finger foam that settles out fairly quickly. On the nose there is a big dose of banana bread, sweet brown sugar, light warm spice and a bit of fig too, The palate is a lot of the same and my mind keeps going back to the banana bread flavors... chewy spice with a mild yeasty backbone leads to a pretty clean focused finish. Not bad but doesn’t stand up to some other quads in its price brackett.

330 mL bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Reddish orange pour with a foamy light khaki head. Aroma of Belgian candi sugar, bubble gum, and faint floral hops. Taste offers ripe banana, circus peanut candy (weird, but this is exactly what it tastes like to me), faint chocolate, and booze. Sweetness lingers on the palate somewhat but I think the alcohol helps to lift this from clinging to the tongue. The end result is a very well done and balanced quad.

Kauge (127) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from a Maksimarket near Rakvere in Sept 2014. BB 02/2017. It is a hazy, dark amber with a red hue; the big, frothy and bubbling head retains and laces well. It looks beautiful! The aroma... a fantastic alcoholic warmth coming through... it’s doughy, biscuity, white wine acidic, spicy, caramelly, clovey... Complex and intoxicating! Taste is quite sweet and caramelly - at first there’s some berry or fruit tartness, then gets more malty (dried apples, clove, vanilla), finishing quite boozy, grainy and dry. Medium to full body, active carbonation, sticky palate. Overall: a very enjoyable, crisp, spicy and boozy Quad.

Mainstream supermarket beer. Not that rich and finely balanced taste that you’re expecting from beers like these. U can get better quadruple’s for the same price in the Belgian supermarkets.

Shain (61) - ISRAEL - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, tasted 100ml during Beer 2014 festival tasting. Served very lightly chilled, too warm for my liking, and this probably hart my rating of it. Pours rich reddish brown with grayish head. Aroma of very sweet malts and sweet caramel, very complex. Very lightly carbonated with a very full thick body. Taste is sweet, with almost no bitterness and not a trace of sourness. Tastes very alcoholic and heavy, sweet liqueur, almost cloying (those flavors were probably enhanced by the warm serving temp). More flavors of choclate, dried fruits, dark malts. After taste is sticky sweet. This is a good beer, but was just too sweet, alcoholic and heavy - I will taste it again in better conditions.

BobyFischer (3) - FRANCE - SEP 12, 2014 does not count
Belle couleur ambrée, légèrement trouble. Au nez : caramel, vanille et houblonnage résineux. Attaque puissante et alcoolisée. Texture onctueuse. D’abord le malt, biscuit, caramel puis une légère note amère de houblon résineux. Peu complexe mais équilibrée et efficace.
