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.

Drank on tap at Burp Monk in New York with Tim Dziubek and Anuj Kumar. This was a very nice mildly bitter and full bodied beer. The color is a deep and dark amber with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is hoppy with a very sweet underlying flavor. I wish this were not my last beer of the night. The full alcoholic body knocked me out!

Pours a dark amber with virtually no head. Has a nutty and burnt toffee taste. Will appeal to lots- but not me

Pours a amber red and hazy beer with almost nonexistent head. Aroma is dried fruits, plums, malty sweet with some caramel. Taste is pretty full, sweet and mildly bitter with notes of dried fruits and alcohol. Carbonation is quite heavy, probably a little bit too heavy in my opinion, but otherwise the body is almost perfect. Overall very enjoyable strong ale.

Sweet flavour of dried fruit, caramel malt, banana, vanilla, yeast and spice with a warming alcohol finish. Full body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Delicious and complex.

ZodiacM (759) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2016
Uit de fles geschonken. Mooi bijna robijnrood bier. Een moutig, zoet, caramel, gedroogd fruit bier in smaak en geur. Een heerlijke quadrupel. Geen topper, wel heel lekker.
