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.

On draft at Bier Markt Toronto. Pours a murky, translucent, caramel colour with a half-finger, off-white head that thins to a film.Aroma is big dark fruits. Raisins, vanilla, and a pitted fruits.Taste sweet but balanced very well. Dark fruits blended with mild vanilla, caramel, and peach/apricot. Mild fruity/spiced aftertaste.Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. A touch slick in the mouth but still clean, creamy, and with an effervescent carbonation. Very nice mouth feel.Overall I?m really liking this. Awesome aroma, taste and texture. Will buy again for sure. Cheers!

Vannerator (5) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 21, 2015 does not count
My first time trying this famous beer. 750ml bottle, pours golden brown/amber with thin off-white head. Like the description says, main aromas are esthery banana, vanilla, sweet nutty, and toffee malt. Flavours of sweet caramel malt, rich raisin/prune. Smooth mouth feel with lively carbonation, bitter aftertaste mellows to bittersweet. Strong alcohol burn on the finish- probably shouldn’t drink this whole bottle in one sitting! I understand what people are saying about it being too sweet, but I don’t think that it detracts from the beer. Delicious and boozy, would recommend!

19/04/2015 @home, 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck, Vichte. Nice amber colour with big head. Aroma : Malts, fruits, caramel. Taste: malts, very fruity, some sweetness. I’ve had it way too sweet, but this one was a bit aged and much better but nothing exceptional.

I’m new to triples and quads... But I know I like them. Sweet but not fruity. This is dark pour with a bubley head. Sweet caramel smell... And every thing you’d expect from a triple. It does have a like more of an ale flavor than you’d get from a trip and the best buy said he looked that better. I prefer the trip to this, but this was still very enjoyable... Give it a shot

lello4ever (195) - ITALY - APR 17, 2015
Color ambra con schiuma beige di media persistenza. Aroma di malto e caramello. Superba bevuta, alcol molto evidente, ma in armonia con il dolce del malto. Leggeri sentori floreali. Carbonazione perfetta. Una birra dabbazia come dio comanda

330ml Bottle from Arendsnest Proeflokaal, Amsterdam (€6.00):
Great stuff from La Trappe here, this one really didn’t seem like a 10% beer at all & this was largely down to the fact that the beer was so smooth to drink & the alcohol was almost completely masked in both the taste and the smell. The taste was a sweet, slightly dry one that proved incredibly easy to drink with some great, dark fruity flavours balancing well with the caramel & dark malts; amazing drinking. I’m already hoping to get my hands on the barrel aged version now.
