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.

Pours a cloudy ruby color with a good amount of off whitehead. Aroma has malty, hints of citrus, belgian yeasts and spices, and bit of alcohol smell. Flavor is sweet in the beginning, turning slightly acid near the end. A bit of carbonation with tiny bubbles tingle giving this a nice mouthfeel. Decent quad, a little harsh but I still enjoyed this one.

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze zloto brazowym z obfita grubopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie typowe nuty belgijskich drozdzy, dojrzale owoce jak brzoskwinie i sliwki oraz troche orzechow laskowych. W smaku mieszanka przypraw, banany i karmel. Slodkie z wysyceniem na sred im poziomie i dosc niska goryczka. Czuc lekki alkohol i slodycz.

Idealna piana, drobna, stojąca. Zapach i smak bardzo bogaty w zioła, słód, ale też orzeźwienie. Dużo ciemnych owoców, ale też nuta wina. Mega pijalne, z jednej strony słodkie, ale też orzeźwiejące. Bardzo dobre piwo

Aroma is bubblegum. Initial mouth taste is of an ok ale, but further mouthfuls allow the less pleasant bubblegum flavour to become dominant in the nose and on the palette, leading to a growing dislike of the beer, and a determination never to waste time or money on it again... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An aged bottle at home. Date on the label is 09-2011, so this is probably 7+ years old. A deep ruby red amber brown autumnal coloured pour with a thin beige tan head. Aroma is cola cubes, boozy raisin, brown sugars, christmas pudding, whiffs of hot alcohol, Flavour is composed of unrefined sugars, toffee, burnt toffee apple, christmas spices, dried orange rind. Rich layered malts and complex sugars. Palate is medium sugar but good attenuation, highish carbonation. Age isn’t actually that noticeible on this beer. Very good beer. I used to go mad for beers like this.

Pour cette dernière bière élaborée par l’abbaye Notre-Dame de Koningshoeven en 1991, les moines trappistes se sont laissés emportés par une véritable envolée lyrique! C’est une réelle chevauchée des Walkiries qui envahit le palais lors de cette dégustation. Notre pure sang est d’un bel ambré, limpide, et surmonté d’une splendide mousse blanc crème d’un cm d’épaisseur, onctueuse. Le nez est racé, la base se porte sur les céréales avec des notes citronées et de coriandre mais les arômes liquoreux viennent le renforcer et lui donner une belle consistance. A la dégustation, la galop est tout de suite donné. L’attaque, épicée, sur les céréales et le caramel est puissante voire imposante. L’amertume apparaît alors, d’une intensité et corpulence exceptionnelle. Telles les notes d’un opéra de Wagner envahssant l’espace, les arômes surgissent et vous prennent le palais. Les arômes sont portés vers le cointreau, la girofle avec une présence de l’alcool marquée, souhaitée, très bien maîtrisée et lui conférant un côté liquoreux (sans être pour autant de trop sucré). Le final, très long laisse une place un peu plus marquée aux épices. En conclusion, la Trappe Quadruple est une bière excptionnelle. L’intensité de ses arômes, sa longueur en bouche très longue et son côté liquoreux marqué en font une bière de dégustation mais qui par ses spécificités pourra déplaire à certains. Pour ma part, les moines auront réussi à élever ma spiritualité. Leur art, d’une maîtrise sans faille, vaut allégrement la note maximale.

0.33 l bottle. Pours copper color with a long lasting, foamy white head. Strong dried fruits notes both in aroma and taste, with roasted malts, burnt sugar, nutty and alcohol overtones. Pleasant sweet aftertaste, very soft carbonation, and not overwhelmingly heavy body with surpringly well hidden ABV. Well balanced, complex brew.

Pours copper bronze. Aroma full of banana, caramel and vanilla. When you taste it the banana sweetness is balanced with darker tones of roasted malt. Aftertaste left in the mouth is like resinous licorice. So far, this is my favourite trappist.

Very good, if somewhat distanced by the really amazing beers in its category. Esters and dried fruit, good amount of boozeyness and too much carbonation for my taste in a quad.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 Bottle. Color: Clear copper golden, dense white head. Taste: Nice complex mix of spices, hints of caramel, yeast, fruit (plums, bananas, apples), malt and alcohol. Full body. Medium carbonation. Mildly bitter spicy finish. Great quadrupel.
