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.

Cervesa que s’ha de prendre amb calma, en cada glop es desobreixen coses noves. Cerveza que se tiene que tomar con calma, en cada sorbo se descubren cosas nuevas.

Sensación en boca viscosa y aterciopelada con divertido toque picante en el paladar. En el el intermedio afloran notas afrutadas, de fruto seco y sutil madera que, junto al bajo amargor, devienen en prolongado y dulce final. En el retrogusto se perciben sabores de albaricoque maduro, pera y manzana horneada que preceden a recuerdos de licor de avellana. Sabrosa, deliciosa y de trago agradable. 330ml bottle.

spasticbeast (12) - Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2014
Pours a beautiful hazy copper with thick off-white head that quickly disappears. Smells of apple, citrus fruit and sugar cookies. Taste is raisin, apples, woody and some bitter dandelion on the middle palate and lingering with more apple in the aftertaste. Crisp and a bit light on the palate. Overall lighter and more floral/fruity than most quads I have had, but solid in its own right.

bobroman (268) - Torun, POLAND - APR 12, 2014
Not very pleasant aroma of fruits and alcohol. Medium head disappearing to thin layer. Ruby hazy body with unapetizing flakes. Mostly alcohol in taste with some fruits and some alcohol bitterness.

superspak (2212) - Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2014
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 5/8/2013. Pours moderately cloudy orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, candi sugar, toast, biscuit, light caramel, molasses, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and moderate malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, banana, candi sugar, toast, biscuit, light caramel, molasses, herbal, floral, clove, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, banana, candi sugar, toast, biscuit, molasses, herbal, light caramel, clove, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and moderate malt sweetness; with an awesome malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly slick mouthfeel that is insane. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming after the finish. Overall this is a world class quadrupel. All around incredible complexity and balance of bright fruity/spicy yeast esters and balanced malt sweetness; and extremely smooth to sip on for the ABV. An insanely delicious offering.

Draft. Dark Amber color. Nice lace. Good body, with nice Belgian flavor. Raisin, a little candi sugar in the flavor. Delicious!
