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 (2652) - Gray, 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.

Gluepot (115) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
Rich orange/tan colour with a soft well laced head. The aroma is soft and sweet, malty with a light spiciness. Drinking a beer like this after indulging in too many IPAs over time is a real treat. This beer has a lovely balance of banana, brown sugar, Belgian yeast, dried fruit and bubble gum. The body is rich and a touch syrupy with a typically fine and fluffy effervescence that enhances the taste. A great beer.

beeebon (289) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2015
Pours amber with very thin head, slightly hazy with minimal sediment. Aroma has a lot going on, figs, almond, brown sugar, banana, a touch of peardrop boiled sweets, yeast and a touch of burnt wood.. Nice complex flavour alternating sweet and bitter, alcohol is present but well hidden. Smooth and creamy texture. I love everything about this!

meireteixeira (142) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JUN 21, 2015
Cor âmbar, brilhante. Espuma boa, bege e de média persistência. Aroma maltado e frutas secas. No paladar caramelo, frutas secas, madeira, mel e álcool. Licorosa e encorpada. Retrogosto seco remetendo a um vinho. Complexa e deliciosa!!!

nihtila (1600) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle at Brot & Spiele, Graz. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby-orange in a wide La Trappe glass - they have excellent glassware in this bar. Nose is sweet caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruits, spices. Taste follows, it is sweet but nicely balanced and alcohol is well hidden - it is there though. Worked as a nice dessert.

mauroruellas (209) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - JUN 19, 2015
Liquido levemente viscoso,translúcido,coloração acobreada(vinho),espuma com média formação e duração;aroma sem dúvida é o seu ponto mais forte,altamente complexo,aparecendo frutas vermelhas e cristalizadas,caramelo,malte tostado,ameixa,passas,especiarias e álcool;sabor potente,aveludado,adocicado,amadeirado com final picante e um tanto alcoólico,me lembrando vinho do porto. Cerveja de primeira,aroma um dos melhores,sabor e o conjunto pecaram um pouquinho pelo álcool bem presente,mas é para ser reverenciada.
