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.

The 10% alcohol was very pronounced . The bad thing is the beer did not have other characteristics to support the alcohol. Finish was almost a little metallic. Label says you can taste the silence maybe they should’ve of talked just a little bit.

Typique du style, tout en étant assez mince en bouche. Ce produit est très effervescent, boisé et l’alcool est peu subtil. C’est moins fruité que je ne l’aurais cru; la banane et les prunes sont bien perceptibles. Bien bonne en fait!

Une bière orangée translucide à la mousse éphémère.Des arômes d"oranges trempées dans de l’alcool, ou plutôt de l’alcool aromatisé à l’orange. Quelques épices sur de la levure et des odeurs de bonbons durs. C’est une copie conforme des senteurs, en saveurs, où se rajoute une forte effervescence et une amertume vieillotte. Ça ressemble à un vieux fromage qu’il faut apprivoiser avant d’apprécier. Comme mon fils, (à 7 mois au moment de cette dégustation) lorsqu’on lui fait goûter une nouvelle sorte de purée.

Marrom com boa formação de espuma de média duração. Aroma com notas frutadas, especialmente frutas secas, malte torrado, especiarias e madeira. No sabor todo aroma é reproduzido e surgindo ainda discreta sugestão de vinho. Bem encorpada com final longo, frutado e com ótimo amargor.

sonotono (132) - torino, ITALY - AUG 20, 2015
Colore ambrato/arancione, schiuma cremosa persistente. Odore malto caramellato, frutta matura. Sapore complesso, fruttato, fichi, frutta matura, caramello, calore dell’alcool, sapori dolci smorzati sul finale da un amaro che bilancia bene il tutto. Corposa e piuttosto frizzante. Da meditazione.

craighill (74) - GERMANY - AUG 18, 2015
Pours clear chestnut brown, highly carbonated with two-finger white head. Aroma of dark toffee, molasses, strawberry, some hop floral or earthy notes. Taste is surprisingly clean at first, bittering gives way to sweet malt caramels and toffees, dark fruits, some alcohol, liquorice, and clove spices.

Zlotta (348) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2015
0.3 l bottle from local Albert Heijn, bottled in december 2014. Clear, reddish amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish, fruity-malty aroma of prunes, raisins, ripe banana, gingerbread, cane sugar, dried dates and maybe a bit of glue. Sweetish, fruity-malty aroma of prunes, raisins, dried dates, ripe banana, gingerbread, cane sugar and hints of licorice, followed by a long, medium bitter, slightly alcoholic and warming finish. Medium to full body, slightly effervescent and creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nicely balanced quad with some hop bite in the end. Still almost unimaginable to see such a beer in a German supermarket whereas it is available in Holland around every corner and for just a bit more than one euro per bottle.
